Oh man.... I'd love to come. I'll have to see what my work schedule is looking like... and the weather... and my accursed energy levels/pain levels. Toronto is about 2.5 hours away by car, and I'm very hesitant about driving in Toronto, but I'd still love to come...

If anyone in the Stratford/New Hamburg/Kitchener/Waterloo area would like to carpool or share driving, I'm up for that. We'd share gas/parking costs, of course.

Sorry I won't be able to make this (I don't want to plan any trips until my employment situation is a bit more secure).  I'm glad to hear you're expecting such good participation.  I hope it goes great!  :)
