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
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.
