Hey Guys,

As many of you know a few of us go down and stay in Oshawa Friday and Saturday night. The last couple of years we have stayed at La Quinta downtown a 5 min drive from the museum/battlefield. Here is the website:

http://www.laquintaoshawa.com/

Well we don't have to stay there it does offer free breakfast and is a convenient location and not too bad for price although parking can be a bit tight.

My question is are any of you interested in a room for this event as I will be checking out prices in the next couple of weeks and booking in as I think rooms will go fast now that this is a weekend event. The price we paid the last couple of years was $80 a night so if you hook up with a bunkie 2 nights at $80 isn't a bad deal. 
There is also the UOIT dorms which would be even cheaper although no breakfast and they are dorm beds. I have stayed there a couple of times it's O.K.  They could be maybe $20 cheaper and a little longer drive to battlefield but not much.

Anyway if any of you are interested let me know. Again Aquino weekend is 27th 28th 29th of May. I will be there about 10 on the Friday mowing the lawn! :-)

Yep, just finished booking through Expedia. Booked in at The UOIT Residence and Conference Center

http://www.stayrcc.com/properties/view/index/Oshawa/

 Got it for $71.96 a night plus taxes. And free cancellation up to the day before if it looks like rain or snow the whole weekend! :-)

It is a 2 bedroom suite and includes a continental (fruit loops! Smile) breakfast. Although I should mention that the beds are only twins! 

There are 4 rooms left if anyone is interested in this place. It is literally a 2 min. drive to the museum/battlefield so great location.

Too bad it is awesome for those who like tanks not to mention the model show. Some people expect it to be a hotel. It is not. It is a dorm room but they are clean, roomy and convenient and cheap! But anyone coming can stay where they like. Very Happy

Well, depends who comes to help me set up as to how long it takes. I usually get there about 10:00-10:30. Takes me 2 to 3 hours to cut the field down. Usually by that time Derek, Russell, or Michael would show up and we would set up the field and lastly tent, tables, etc.. We were generally ready to go by about 1 or 2 and there were people around to watch so we usually played around until 5 or 6 then hit the mess for a beverage and left for the hotel but this year may be a little different as they are actually going open on Friday for media and others and includes a night shoot. So same general plan as before but I will probably stay at the mess and have a bit of supper and stay for the night shoot. I am going to try for something special for us Saturday night... :-)

Most likely, she's been having a rough time at school, so it'll be a nice escape for her.

Those hotels are too expensive. The museum has deals with some local hotels if there are rooms left...

You don't need to bring much Bud, just your bring your regular stuff that you bring to battledays.  Between me, Ed and Dean (mostly Dean) we've got it cover.  Also don't forget a lawn chair and your camera.
