Emails should arrive as we get closer.

Always best to review the info here on the forum.

We stayed in The Soo last summer and had a great time taking in the sites along the waterfront and indulging in some great eatin' spots. A little bumpy along Hwy 17 West of Sudbury.....the roads need work. The sites along the North side of Lake Superior kinda made up for some of it.

Stay tuned, and start packing😁

I'm not aware of many golf courses in the Kingston area. There is a small course in Gananoque and one west of Napanee near Shannonville.

I'm not a golfer.....only good at the "nineteenth" hole. 😁😁

Just google "golf courses near Kingston Ontario" and you'll see quite a few, but it all depends on what you call nearby.

As ITAT stated there are not any right in Kingston. The terrain is what I call Canadian Shield meets wetlands. Rock Cuts, Lake Ontario/ duck wetland. A rugged area within short drives of the park you can experience a lot.

Here is a Google link for the links.

Hey, there's more than I thought!

I have to say, when I lived in the Kingston area - actually a half hour east in the Village of Lansdowne, just north of the bridge to the USA - I saw a lot of Americans coming up with bass boats and fishing gear. I remember writing "Mechanicsburg, Pa" on many fishing licenses in my teens. Didn't see many with golf clubs. It's just not what the area is known for. Lot's of great fishing in the many lakes north of Kingston, lots of history in Kingston and sightseeing along the shoreline route between Gananoque and Brockville.

B and B has a great description for the area "Canadian Shield meets wetlands. Rock Cuts, Lake Ontario/ duck wetland."

Or......if this rally was being held down South, you'd have said....

"I will try fishing or just enjoying the company of y'all".

We'll just have chat you up Canajun style!

Breakfast

Tour of Kingston Penitentiary ( again waiting on confirmation ) self registered car pool to site. Holly is working on this once the director is back to confirm openings

Afternoon Tech Talk. Need suggest d we could a round table sorties and ideas on things we do to keep our camping hassle free

Pot Luck
The hall is available for a pot luck dinner. We can figure this out closer to rally time.

Evening Campfires

Saturday

Breakfast

Thousand Island tours. Self guided tour. As interest gets closer Ken has been on this tour in the past and can speak to what you see and the castles on the way.

Catered Dinner sponsored by FROG.

For most pack up and head home.

Greetings Everyone.

We have sold our Rockwood and purchased a Heartland Bighorn. Despite looking for several years at Columbus and other Forest River 5er's we could not find the right floor plan, features or value to stay in a Forest River trailer.

I have messaged Frog Bob about leaving Forest River and the Rally. I will assist as requested with the final arrangements for Catering and dealing with the Park.

We have made many friends with FROG and online through the forum as well.

All the best to Everyone! Have a great Rally and Safe Travels where ever the road takes you.

Brian and Bette
