Location:

After previous successful events at Winchester and Perth, this year we will be located at the Upper Canada Campgrounds, conveniently located just off Highway 401, between Montréal and Toronto, and just an hour from Ottawa.   There are accommodations and many interesting tourism opportunities within a short distance of the site.  Click the image below to enlarge the map.

(Or look at the live Google Map below.  However, do NOT believe the “A” location marker.  The camp site is North of Highway 401, at exit 758)
