2013, May 24-26: Egg Fest Ontario (Grafton, Ontario)

NEWS FLASH!!
EGGFESTONTARIO2013;
We are NOT going to be at Beavermead in Peterborough due to circumstances beyond our control. The new location for EggFestOntario2013 is Cobourg East Campground , near Grafton, Ontario, between Cobourg and Brighton. It has easy access from the 401 highway or from highway #2.

They can handle all of us but will probably have to put two trailers to a site, sharing hydro. You will pay when you arrive, but I need you to confirm you are coming as I have to submit a list of campers to the campground, so please let me know, not the campground. The price will be between $25 and $30 per night per trailer, payable by Visa, Mastercard or Cash. They do not have a debit machine, but there is a cash machine in the village of Grafton.

Unless you advise differently I will book you to arrive on the Friday, for two nights. Some of us are coming in Thursday and staying until Monday. If you wish to team up with someone else to share a site please let me know otherwise the campground will assign your site. If you prefer to pay the extra and have a site to yourself, it may be in a bit different area.

Campground facilities include: - two washrooms, free showers, laundry, games room, library, sports fields, fishing and we will have use of the Rec Hall for our Saturday evening supper and social time. We will have a bonfire area and they sell the wood.

Nearby facilities: - two golf courses, a par three and a larger one just minutes from the campground. The towns of Cobourg and Brighton just down the road with shopping and Cobourg has a mall. There are theatres and other tourist attractions in the area.

Your EggFetOntario organizers do not charge a registration fee but will be running a 50/50 draw to pay our expenses for printing, door prizes, etc. So please check in at EggFest Welcome Centre to pick up your souvenier button, tickets, registration sheet etc.
Please Bring:- your baby pictures for the guessing contest, books for the book trade and any items you want to trade or sell at the Saturday yard sale/mini house tour. We will have a campfire Friday and Saturday nights so bring your voices and instruments along.
We are going to repeat the “bring your own supper” meal for Saturday night, also 50/50 draw, door prizes. I will be sending out an agenda some time in April.

If your name is already on my list, you will not lose your reserved button, but you must confirm your attendance under these new circumstances. Also I have someone who is thinking of doing some T-Shirts but is not sure of the interest. Please let me know, so I can advise him.

Thank you.
Vivian & Paul Parkin

Don't forget to bring your baby picture if you can for the guessing contest. The "bring your own" supper is on Saturday night between 5 & 5:30. Campfire sing-a-long both Friday & Saturday nights. Log-in and BookTrade at EggFest Headquarters. Mini-house tour and yard sale plus Dave Clapp's "problem solving Seminar" Saturday morning.
Bill & Barb Okanik are registrants #40, so we're filling up fast and I only have 50 buttons, so first 50 get them. Bizzian.

We are ALMOST full. The campground has a couple of other areas so we may be able to utilize them but for now we can take about two or three more and that's it.

Can you put them on a CD and bring them to EggFest in May?
Otherwise, if you use Picasa, you can just email them to me.

We've never been to one of these before we are really looking forward to it. We are interested in knowing how many have signed up etc. Can we do a roll call?

We have about 44 trailers indicating they are coming. If you go to my blog at
Bizzian's Place -
you can see a list of who is coming. I am updating it today to add the last couple or two. Just copy and past this address into your browser and all the info is there.

Your best bet is to find a rally near you and join up. There are lots of "experts" there to help with any problems you may have. There are rallys all over and at all times too. Ours is near Grafton Ontario the last weekend of and called EggFest. We are having a Q&A guy there for the weekend.

There is one in July in Longbeach Conservation Area, near Niagara called Ontario bolerama. Also the Atlantic meet is in July in Baddeck NS. We hope to hit that one. Quebec bolerama is in September near Drummondville and we usually go to that one because the weather is cooler.

On this website if you go to the Rally Calendar, they are mostly all listed for Canada and USA with links. There are threads on here also with all kinds of advice so welcome aboard and hope to see you at one of the rallies. (We still have room for a couple more at EggFest!).

How do I registar for the Eggfest.

Hi - I can`t seem to find registation information for the 2013 Eggfest. I guess I`m really new at this and surely don`t know the ropes. I would really like to participate. Who do I call or email to get myself registared?

I did find the Bizzian Place Blog and tried the e-address on that site, but the email failed to be delivered.

Thanks
