Thanks for everyone’s interest–we’re going ahead with this event.
At this point, Beaver Valley is in a commanding lead in our poll, and there is an excellent country market stop we can make (I have been buying apples from there for years), as well as a lunch stop that I am very sure you would never stumble across on your own (it was recommended to me at the market).
As we have seen in Eastern Canada recently, weather is unpredictable. For this event, we don’t want “too good”–warm and sunny will just make a mess–and we don’t want “too bad”–the roads will be closed, dangerous, or both. Therefore, I am proposing that we have an event date and a weather alternate: January 19th as the event date, and January 26th as the alternate seem to be the best choices.
If the weather is okay, but the roads are really bad, Tiny Beaches remains a viable alternative.
Because the weather and road conditions can change dramatically over just a few days, we will have to have a GO/NO-GO decision fairly close to the event. In addition to posting here, I am looking at ways for interested people to register for e-mail updates. Further details will be posted early in the New Year.
Please let me know what you think.
