I've been playing with schedules... Its fun and I like playing with this stuff. Leave me alone. I know we are still a year away and the 15 minutes between speakers could be changed to 10. I don't care. Shut up.
Right now I have things officially starting at noon on Friday and running until 6:00 PM Sunday. Thought this nugget might help those who are shopping flights. 10:00 AM through to noon on Friday is scheduled as "check in-arrival" time.
If any local/semi local helpers are able to be at the venue by 09h00 to help with setup, that would be supercool. Also, anyone who is looking at a flight a day or so early, my family has room in our house for bodies, but you will be woken up frickin' early on Friday AM to drive to the camp and will be enlisted in the setup crew.
We can take 7 ppl between our car and minivan, but some spots will be squishy. If we get demand for more than 7, we will rent a van and have riders split costs. Basically what I am saying is that if Wednesday/Thursday flights are cheap... go for it and we will put you up. Somehow. GO Train service from Toronto airports to our home is excellent, we have a spare bed, an inflatable bed, and tonnes of camping gear/couches/etc.
Connectivity from Buffalo to chez Prospero sux. If you can find a way to link BUF to the GO train, you're in luck. I've never tried. Our town is on the Lakeshore line, and our home is a few km from the GO station. Since all things GO link to the Lakeshore line, if you can get to it, Bob's your uncle.
No idea how many folks are already hitting long-term airfare deals.
