Default Banff Run 2011

As always, we are having our Annual Banff run this year at the end of August (26,27,28).
We usually meet up in the city (north end tims) and drive out together. For those who can't leave friday morning, anyone leaving saturday will usually meet up and drive out together as well.

It is coming up fast. Please let me know if you are planning on coming and what you plan on doing for sleeping arrangements. For those who went last year, it was a very cold camping weekend.

People will be on their own for making arrangements for the weekend, whether its booking your own room or camp site. (this avoids people paying more than they should to hold # of sites and not have them used)

Its an amazing event to drive up through the mountains with 13+ gens, lets make it an amazing one this year.

Never been to Banff, I might just have to book some time off! What do the sites usually cost for a weekend? (wish I could fit my Daytona in my trunk for some of those awesome roads...why isn't the genesis a truck? lmao)

Also, how can we ensure camping spots close together? So that we can essentially have one big dru...i mean campsite.

you will have to phone. the site we used last year was Tunnel Mountain. I believe sites were like mayybe 40 a night (dont quote me, i didnt camp lol)

as for having sites together...last year stew booked like 7 sites for "confirmed" people, and ended up out money cause people backed out last minute. so i guess talk around and see who would all be camping and if sites arent close to one another, we will just use one as a meeting site and that will be that.

True that. I'm all in. I've booked it off work and love the drive even without other Gens. It's a good time. I'm really looking forward to it!

I seem to remember $40 per site being the cost, and each campsite can accommodate two cars and tents.
