Could you have it in Sascat...Sasketc...Manitoba? I've never been to Manitoba.

If you have it in, oh, Alberta or BC I might be able to make it, if you'll let me in.

Canadians are welcome at my place. I'm not prejudiced against Canadians or, as we call them in Pocatello, "folks from Northern Idaho."

May I suggest getting together at the Ormstown Branches and Roots Festival . This is a low key and friendly festival which is organized by Mudcat Beer and is held at the end of July in a small town situated 45 minutes out of Montreal. There is free camping and toilet and shower facilities available. So far four Mudcatters, that I know of, have expressed their intention of attending next July.

In a very short time I will be able to announce some of the changes we are working on for 2007. I'm excited about them but the almighty dollar may still be the problem. Anyone want to donate around ten grand or suggest some millionaire that wants a tax receipt for a donation?

Will we need a passport to go to Quebec? ;)

What are the 2007 dates? How much is the cost of admission to the festival?   Does the free camping include "car camping?" (Could I park my car and sleep in it instead of putting up a tent?)

Thanks,

That depends from where West are you coming from? If it is B.C. then of course you do. But if your coming from state side no problem. The dates are July 27,28 and 29 Admission for the past 4 years has been $10.00 in advance $15 at the gate. Friday no charge as well as Sunday. It has been pass the hat. However, this may change a bit this year. Camping is free to a point. If you need electrical hook up then it is $10.00 a day/night. The grounds has plenty of room for trailers, boats , planes or even pup tents. If you want to park your car on the property and sleep in it no problem. Just turn the motor off.

SINSULL,

Canucks have an idiot just like Bush. As much as we think your President is a horse's ass, we are also aware that you are not him. My take on Canadians is that if asked, and if they dislike Bush's policies, they will say very directly and very politely that they think he's not very bright. But truly there is no way 'we' think of Americans as representative of their politicians. True story comin' atcha.

I live in the most redneck part of Canada. Few places more so than Alberta. A fellow on his way to Alaska--American plates on his car--seems to have fallen asleep at the wheel and hit another vehicle (Alberta plates) killing two people and injuring two others. He was banged up and so were the two survivors in the other vehicle. We got them 'packaged' and off to hospital and dealt with the dead. There was NO talk about him being a Yank and what idiots they all are, etc. In fact, people went out of their way for him so that he could get back on the road to Alaska. The Canadian 'dislike' of the US has to do with its politicians and some of its policies to do with soft-wood lumber, cattle, etc. But that dislike does NOT extend itself to individual American citizens. WE realize that many of you are as pissed off with Washington as are many of us.

Big Mick. Your 9 to 10 hours away. Your also from Red Wing country. "Go Wings Go". Was at to old Olympia 4 times. Back to the topic.
I don't think there is a passport required to come to Canada. I go to N/York state once a month to play at a coffee house and have no problem. And some musicians do the same by coming here with the same results. Then again it just may depend on the border guard. Someone else may be able to answer this better than I.
If this becomes a do as Big Mick suggests than I will begin working on organizing help from this end.
Ragdall I was just kidding of course   Especially if your from Canada. And Sinsull I understand your concern. I assure you this. Every Mudcatter would be welcomed. Maybe this is exactly what is needed to mend a few fences.

I do know there will be a Passport required for Canucks to go to the USA as of January 1, 2007.

"Documents for U.S. Citizens--Bring your passport if you've got one. A passport is the easiest and fastest way to enter Canada and return to the U.S. Note: Under the new Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative, as of December 31, 2006, all travelers to and from Canada will be required to have a passport or other accepted document that establishes the bearer's identity and nationality to enter or re-enter the United States. Other documents that the U.S. government anticipates will be acceptable for land and border crossings under this new initiative are SENTRI, NEXUS, and FAST program cards (international frequent traveler programs). This means that you will no longer be able to enter Canada using a driver's license and birth certificate.

For the latest information on passports and entry requirements for U.S. citizens, check the Web page of the U.S. State Department at www.travel.state.gov. Naturalized citizens should carry their naturalization certificates. U.S. citizens don't require visas to enter Canada."

Peace, to my knowledge the date for requiring a passport to cross the US border is Jan 1 2008.

"The Departments of Homeland Security and State announced today the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative to secure and expedite travel. The Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative will require all U.S. citizens, Canadians, citizens of the British Overseas Territory of Bermuda, and citizens of Mexico to have a passport or other accepted secure document to enter or re-enter United States by January 1, 2008."

Far as the passport thing goes, I think GWB Inc caved a bit and moved the dates forward a couple of years due to intensive lobbying from border states and provinces who are ALL against this passport requirement, because so much cross-border tourism will be eliminated. (About 25% of Americans and 50% of Canadians hold passports and many wouldn't bother to get one to make a little excursion).

Note: Canada is not in fact imposing such regulations on US citizens, but THE U.S. IS!!!! Read Bobad's post above. The point is, when/if the new plan goes into effect, American citizens will need passports (or possibly a new yet-to-be-finalized "secure ID" document) to RE-ENTER the U.S. from Canada.

Hey, come and stay. We'll make room.
