We can get ourselves over the border without a problem, but bringing tools and parts gets really interesting.

I think there is some ways to make it happen though, but it would definitely take some planning. We honestly would love to come up and do a northern event since we have so many great customers up in Canada though.

The problem is that most of us are not bilingual, at least not french, and the road signs are only in french.

I'll guess the average vocabulary of U.S. citizens at something in the area of 15,000 words and the average number of unique words used each day at around 2,000. For the average Solstice driver on the road, maybe 10. I think we can all pick up enough to get by with French road signs between now and the 2017 summer solstice.

If Canada wants to step up for 2017, we're in! We have a significant number of Canadian members and I would love to see their neck of the woods from the seat of a Kappa!

The last time I drove from Montreal to Quebec and back, I was able to understand the road signs well enough, but the prompts on the gas pumps caused me to hesitate. The clerk didn't speak any English, so I had to figure it out.

There are quite a few of us in the Quebec club who are completely bilingual and would definitely help out on the events. The area around St-Sauveur as Pierre states is so well suited for our Kappas, most of the stores, service stations. restaurants, etc are fairly bilingual. For those who were at NASSM 2014 in the Poconos, the terrain is similar for the woods and slightly more hilly. Day runs could be organized from St-Sauveur to the Townships where we could include North-east states cars that can easily join the runs. Pierre is a great organizer and the event would be as good as any

I like the idea of a Canadian nationals. After all, it is the North American Solstice Sky Annual Meet.

Maybe by 2018 I can work out a group of locals to put together a 2018 meet in Ohio's North cost.

But I'd also still like to see something in Michigan eventually. I know the Heritage Center rents out their space for parties.

If things are still going well for me in 2017, I would like the Quebec idea. It would be a nice 'change-of-pace' to visit Canada. Also, it would be a much closer journey than Arkansas this year (600 miles to Montreal vs. 900 miles to Ozarks).

On the negative end, I need to dump a boatload of cash to get my car fixed up enough to make it safe enough for another long trek.

Besides, I heard the most active Kappa couple in WV moved several months ago to somewhere near the Ozarks. :sunglasses: Coincidence? My guess is no. :+1::smiley:
