Cinor (Cindy, C3VR member that lives in Saskatchewan) has offered to put together our 2019 Gathering which is slated to take place in the Western part of the country. Well, Saskatchewan is above the western part of the country, just a bit north.

Part of the challenge of putting together the annual gathering is finding one or more people to help put it together. So, the fact that we already have someone willing to put one together makes it pretty easy to decide where to go.

We usually put out a vote for a handful of places, but since we already have someone willing to plan the event, I want to start by first seeing if we have enough people with the desire to attend the gathering if it were in Saskatchewan, specifically the city of Saskatoon.

I think if we get at least 20 people that it will all be worth it. But hopefully we'd have a lot more! I look at this as an opportunity to experience a whole new part of the world that I'd likely otherwise not go. So, maybe you'll feel the same.

By voting "Yes", you aren't committing to attend. You're just stating that if you are available when the time comes, you'd want to and would attend in this location. Just looking for interest level at this time.

Thanks!

Question: Would you be willing to attend a Gathering in Saskatchewan, Canada in July 2019?

Click one of the following choices to submit your response. (NOTE: Be sure to select the correct response, once you make your selection you can not change it!)

1. Yes! If it fits my schedule I'll be there!
2. No! I have no desire to go to a gathering in Canada, I'll only go if it is in the US
3. No! Because it is too far for me. But I will likely go if the location is closer to me.
4. No! I won't attend any gathering in 2019 regardless of location

WOW - that was quick...!!!  Shocked

Drove through the province once years ago returning from a family vacation in the Canadian Rockies to Minne-snow-ta.  Other than that about all I know of Saskatchewan is that's where Patty's brothers go for duck and goose hunting in the fall.  From our place in Colorado it would be a solid two day drive to Saskatoon (according to Google Maps).

It would be a first to have a Gathering in a "foreign" country.  Wink  If your passport isn't current, or you don't have one, get going now!

I was hoping for Southern California for 2019, but I can stop there on my way to Saskatoon.
Just don't make it for Labor day weekend (NCM 25th Anniv caravan).
Or the weekend before (Carlisle).
Or before July 4th (too much snow in the Rockies).
Or after September 15th (too much snow in the Rockies).
Around the car show in the Rockies (Black Hills?) would work.
OK, I'm in.

BTW, if you have a criminal record, you won't get into Canada. 
That includes DWI and DUI.

Maybe it's only Ontario Prov.
I can sneak in the back door.

BTW, It's ONLY 1875 miles from my house if I go through Ontario to Windsor and then I75. 31 hours of driving would be 4 days.

If I go I90 to I94 it's 1930 miles and 30 hours.

Can you get a hotel south of the city? Then it won't be so far. LOL

I will warn you right now if you go through Ontario you are gonna be there for a very long time. Speed limit is 90 km and with campers and motorhomes you will find yourself doing 70 km a lot of time. There are only passing lanes and not a lot of them. when I drove through it rained the whole time and was foggy, believe me you do not want to take your eyes off the road cause on the one side its a looooog ways down

So.....Ladies, In your opinion, as you have traversed the country multiple times, What is the best route for us to travel to your Saskatoon outing. Many of us will be starting from the eastern portion of the US of A.🚗↕↔❓
