Of course I'm jealous and disappointed, but I hope all Canadians above the border have a great time and this Canadian below the border will just have to look forward to twice as much fun next year.
Guess I need to call Celia and formally change my res to 2021.

As the song goes... "See you in September". Bring masks and hand sanitizer for your comfort.

Going to try to get out with a couple HC1s this year Alf and maybe an HCT if we can get it here in time.

We have not canceled yet, I don't think, but I scheduled dental appointments during this rally yesterday. Raise a glass for us, as we get our teeth cleaned after months of not being able to do this.

See you next year and "rally" for a vaccine in the meantime.

I'm still hoping since the last I read the border was closed until August 21...

WaltP 08-07-2020 04:43 PM

Thanks Jon . I hadn't heard that. Guess I'll wait to see,,, with fingers crossed.

They've been extending the closure a month at a time. I wouldn't expect the border to open this year, given the performance of the U.S. leadership. Canadians wouldn't stand for it.

WaltP 08-07-2020 07:18 PM

I pretty well agree Glenn but it won't hurt to wait another couple of weeks to cancel, just in case.

Jon Vermilye 08-08-2020 09:22 AM

To be honest, I have to agree with Glenn, but one can only hope! It is too bad they can't use an area decision. Our section of NY has very low Covid 19 figures, so the short drive to the border & across would likely be fine. Still, I understand and appreciate Canada's approach.

emers382 08-09-2020 08:28 PM

It's great to be hopeful but most Canadians at least from what I've seen on social media are adamant they want the border to stay closed. Today we canceled our Sept. weekend at the New Ulm MN rally as know it's very likely we cannot get there. I can't even drive three miles south of town to get gas or pick up packages anymore. Our border crossing is nothing but trucks now.

While I do not disagree that the border remaining closed is the most beneficial/safest situation for Canadians, I have to disagree with the implication (statement) that “Canadians wouldn’t stand for it.”

Canadian citizens are no more able to effect policy than citizens of the US, period. All policy is established by elected government at multiple levels, whether it be State or Provisional, Federal or Confederational (not sure what term is used in Canada to label the highest level based in Ottawa). But fortunately for Canadians, the governmental authorities are and have based their policies on rational, medical and scientific principles rather than wishful economic thinking/desire. If they hadn’t, the borders would now be open regardless of what the average Canadian wants.

CindyL 08-10-2020 09:13 AM

We postponed until next year. See you then.

Niagara Wine Escape 2020
 
Hi: All... Still looking for Canadian campers suffering from withdrawal. Grab a "Rez" at the Riverside Campground and Motel in beautiful Niagara Falls Ontario. Even with no social activities and shared food we can still have some campfire tales and just enjoy being out there!!!

Camping
 
Yes! We have re-booked our spot #69 after canceling earlier this year! See you all there!

Jon Vermilye 08-14-2020 12:42 PM

Well, the border is now closed until September 21, so I reluctantly canceled my reservation. Since the plan was to drive through Canada to get to the Algonac Rally the week before the Niagara rally, I canceled that as well. Looks like the trailer is going to live in the driveway!

WaltP 08-14-2020 01:15 PM

Yep. I'll cancel now also. Too bad.
Hoping for next year.

Walt

mszabo 08-14-2020 02:38 PM

We just cancelled also. We are really sad. Going too
miss all our friends.
That’s two trips to canal cancelled this year.

Still planing on Algonac and Brown county, IN.

Hope too see everyone at borerama next July.

Stay safe!!

Don N 08-15-2020 06:39 AM

Yes lots of good times being missed this year without our American friends

Hi: Jcampagnolo... You've done all you need. We're going to be a loosely gathered bunch due to Co-Vivid this year... but we'll still carry on with camping and campfires. The Niagara Board of Health rules will be adhered to.

Alf S. 09-06-2020 06:17 AM

Hi: All... It's getting closer. Due to Co-vivid 19 it will be the first "All Canadian" Niagara Wine Escape. Come on down to "The Falls" and socially distance with us Sept. 18th - 20th. We'll try to have some campfire fun at least!!!
