Hi Jenn.
Booked into Emily at site #95.
By noon on Christmas day there was only one site left in the Circle area, so I picked a spot on Hill campground. Don't think the walk will be too far. See you in the spring.

Hi all.
Just a note to anyone who has booked this event, or is thinking about it... The tear droppers have officially cancelled this event on their calendar. This does not mean there will be no camping at Emily this weekend. I still plan on going, and if any others are going, don't be shy about coming over and saying hello. There might be an adult beverage laying around with your name on it ( or cake!).
Hope to see a few of the regulars out, and meet new friends as well.

As always the threat of use them or loose them applies to our provincial parks... Don't say I didn't warn ya! :)

So, how was the event? What no pix? No stories? Curious to know how the weekend went and how you all enjoyed the park. For those of us who couldn't make it this time round, how was the spring fling?
