I am in Brewster, New York N41.4 W73.68. I was typing in Wharton Canada on google earth and it was taking me to Nova Scotia. I finally saw my mistake and got good directions. Thanks Art

Almost 600 miles. That would be a pretty good drive Art. Hope you can make it.

For those with auto GPS that won't take coordinates here is the Onatrio Municipal number.
Fire no is, 230621 Cole's Side Road (north half)

From what I'm hearing sounds like there will be a good turn out.

Man, I sure wanted to go. It's 2 - 2.5 hrs flight time for me, with a stop required in Owen Sound for fuel. So, 3hrs each way. I planned for Sunday, but the weather was calling for showers and thunderstorms. In the end, I opted out cause I had to come back the same day.
I've got to build a trailer. In the end, both Sat and Sun were pretty good days, there must have been lots of good flying.
