    Even with the rain I enjoyed it. Only met one member but since it was a weekend event and come when you can, along with tunnel vision through the viewfinder, and a large area it's understandable. Hope all had a chance to come out and enjoy.

    Regretfully I was not on the lake side of the bridge to capture the Tall Ships. Instead I was on the shoreline on Burlington's side...and would've been good if the ships had sailed down the centre of the bay rather than the opposite side...along the steel plants. Even at 300mm I couldn't get a good size image. Some major Photoshopping will have to be done to do some salvaging. What a disappointment!!!

    Got there just after 2pm and tried for over half hour to find parking. I gave up:(

    Got there just after 3pm and it was impossible to find a place to park, might try again tomorrow.

    I parked on the Burlington side of the Beach Strip, there were still a few spots available when I got there.

    Yeah, traffic was crazy, I just barely made it myself. Had to pay for parking by the inland water authority.

  • Paul S.

    Thought I was getting there early, wow what a mess with traffic. I decided to go to the beach instead, it was busy, but bearable. A pretty good view as they gathered up to enter the canal. I really need to get some better lenses. Lots of cameras all over the place.

    Sorry to have to cancel today's meeting. Went to the dentist this morning for an oral surgery and don't feel well. Hope to have the opportunity to meet you soon.

    Is the group meeting at a certain time and place or is this just do your own thing...thing????

    June 27, 2013

    • Ron C.

      Hi Jocelyne: I'm pretty sure it's a do your own thing, as I'll be on the Burlington side of the bay. Let's just hope the bad weather forecasts are wrong...again. >Ron<

    I am pretty excited about this. I planned to go to the Tall Ships in Toronto last weekend but it was raining. I will be there but will not make it until 4/4:30 so hopefully I can find some of you!

    I'd love to see them, I just can;t guarantee the time on Friday.

    June 25, 2013

  • Kevin B.

    Saw them in T.O.

    June 24, 2013

  • Dave E.

    I would love to see them come in. going to try and make it on time.

    June 24, 2013

  • Paul S.

    if I can get down on time for the sail portion.

    June 23, 2013

  • Tanya

    I am interested in this event. It would be my first meet up as I am new to the group but I suppose this meet up is informal? So I take it we won't be doing this as a group since it's an open event? Also from the description it looks like the tours don't start until Saturday.....is that correct? Sorry for all the questions.....like I said I am a newbie.

    Hi, would this venue be wheelchair accessible?

    June 13, 2013

  • Brad T.

    Will in Montréal June 28 for a photo shoot but would like to join if on June 29th or 30th..

    June 9, 2013

    • Hesham

      I'd like to go on 29th or 30th as well.

      June 12, 2013

  • Deborah G.

    Would love to attend this, will very much depend on how well my packing goes, as I leave in the evening to head for the camp that I am staff for.

    Hi Susan

    It is appropriate to bring your granddaughter. This is an open event, which means that there is not an offical time to meet like other events. As the ships sail in in the afternoon and some of the members will still be at work. You can start touring the ships at 6.

    This is an open event to the public.

    Let me know if you have another questions. Hope you will still attend.

    Friday is difficult. Anyone interested in the weekend instead?

    June 2, 2013

  • Ron C.

    As I'm enthused about this outing, I'm counting myself in and hope I'll be able to go. Though I'm hoping it's only for the meet-up group, I think it's wishful thinking and will end up being a public event. Arriving early would be most recommended.

    May 16, 2013

  • Errol A.

    Is this just for the meet up group or is it open to the public as well?

    March 30, 2013

  • Nadine

    Will I need to check in with someone, if so who?

    March 24, 2013

  • Kara W.

    Looking forward to this.

    March 23, 2013

  • Ron C.

    Though I'm very interested, I'm not committing myself yet. Will wait til the date is closer.
