Can any Kitchener/Waterloo/Cambridge/Guelph folks offer Josh a bed? I'd love to be able to get some tips on fine Kansas City BBQ! The only plave I've been is Arthur Bryant's for the burnt ends sandwich. Do you also need airport rides, Josh?

I'm afraid the only advice I can give on Kansas City BBQ is to eat as much as you can! Smile
I'd be more than happy to accept a ride from the airport, otherwise I can take a taxi . And if anyone can offer a bed, or hotel room I'd be more than happy to help pay for it. Heck, with as much sleeping that goes on at these conventions, I really only need a place to stow luggage and shower. Smile

Any help is appreciated!

Maybe you should start a new thread for this, Josh. A lot of very fine folks go to CAM, and I'm sure someone will step forward. Maybe calling it "Need A Bed At CAM" or something else that's just as clear will help.

In an effort to save money on the trip (and hopefully afford a room!) I'm looking into driving up. At 1000 miles, it's a little daunting. Is there anything the locals can advise me on as far as border crossings, driving laws, etc... are concerned?

Thanks,

Josh

Although a passport isn't mandatory for driving, I think it is for air passage, but it's best to use one anyway.

Driving laws are very similar.

15-hour drive, so if you leave Wed morning, you'll be here late Wed night.

If driving, cross at Port Huron, Michigan (Sarnia, Ontario). On a map, it looks shorter via Detroit/Windsor, but Port Huron/Sarnia is quicker and easier. Less traffic and less city driving.

Good luck, Josh, and w'll see you there!

The big question remains though, if I end up having to sleep my car or the lobby, who will let me use their shower? Smile

If Map Quest is to be trusted, this appears to be the route I'll be taking:

I'll probably invest in a Garmin before the drive to be safe though.

I checked out the registration form, seems that you have to mail it in with your credit card info. is there anyway to do this by internet or by phone instead of old fashioned regular mail?

Durgy,
I don't think so, but we're not the convention's organizers, so I suggest contacting them.
Cheers!

Josh,

If you're trying to do the convention on a budget, check out http://www.laurierconferences.ca/index-Summer.htm for accomodations. $40/night
The university is about a 12 minute drive from the convention facilities.

Brian,

Thanks for the tip. I might have a room now, but if it falls through I'll definitely look into that.

I may be able to pick some people up at the airport in Toronto and shuttle to Kitchener.

PM me if you are interested and if I can get two or three at the same time I would be happy to.

I will share my phone number and email address so we can communicate and arrange as the event gets closer.

Cheers,

Anyone else having problems with the e-mail address on the registration form? I haven't received a registration confirmation yet, and when I try to contact jcaesar@sentex.ca my message gets bumped back citing "permanent errors"

It's not a question of 'giving it time'. The problem is that the e-mail is being returned as undeliverable.

And if that continues to happen, then people aren't going to keep trying to register.

It's happened to me as well.

Well sent in my cheque
Guess I'm officially going for the first time. I've been meaning to go the last two times but was unable to.

Apparently, at this moment, Joan is out of the country. Apparently the issue won't be fixed until she get's back.

Hello!


I have a room booked at the Delata and I am all set for CAM 2007! I will also b competing in close up this year, and this will be my first time. If anyone (and by anyone I mean Ben Proudfoot) has any advice, it would be greatly appreciated! Alo, if you are attend, please come to the Close Up Competition! I need your support. I am performing an 8 minute long comedy card routine including many of my own hard-hitting full card routines with tons of laughs!
