Excellent location for this type of event.
The Couples Resort is in Whitney, ON but I think that's on the other side of the Algonquin Park. I would be interested in attending this, just to get the "1st Annual" One Thumb motif tattoo.
Cool, getto the end of the line,get your OneThumb Tattoo's

hi, it's MEEEEE
Got home 3:30 pm, Roads were mostly wet, one spot we had a moderate rain fall for 30 min. or so. Great scenery on the way home, north of TO the roads were dry, QEW was backed up at Bronte rd. all the way to 403 exit going up the Red Hill that's where I ran into ran and fog.
Many Thanks to the Crew up in Brancroft, Laurie and Bear you did a fantastic job with Saturday's evening meal, what a way to top off the day.. The trip through Algonquin waswell worth theRide to Acton Bancroft.
Thanks also to Wayne & Heather of Wayne's WorldPolaris for thedoor prizes.

Hey!
Got back around 1 - rain off & on until about an hour from Ottawa. Not a problem. Yup, it was a great time! Thanks to everyone for being there, and especially to Barry and Laurie for putting on the meet. Next year, who knows? I predict more Vicsters!
I'll post a couple of pictures once I've figured out how to do it!
Just send me your pics, I'll post them for you.

Staging for Saturdays' ride through Algonquin Park


Stop in Dorset for lunch,
Nepper taking rain gear off

Gabby, I hope it dosen't rain any more.

Sutherland, tea anyone?

Sutherland, Where is Sandra when I need her?

Stopping for lunch
L-R, Gabby with back to camera, Kathy, Buckwheat & DaveE.

Guess what he's up to?

Likewise

Rule # One, Don't leave camera un attended

Laurie, I don't care how you do it, we'll need more food, This riding group has an Eating Disorder.

No wonder we didn't see any OPP on the roads, they are all on the water.

As usual Jakfrost is holding everyone up, his ride always draws a crowd.

Where is everybody?
