    Great time for sure, looking forward to the next time.

    I found "The Chair" in Cornerbrook, cool spot. Until next time.

    Thanks for putting up your pics. As it stands we are planning to host next year’s Skibum Soiree, if we keep the same style of providing meals we will put a cap on numbers.

    When we get a few things sorted I’ll put up a new thread.

    Thanks, I didn't take too many pics as it was just so great to chill and flow for a couple of days like northern summer would go on forever, but there were those few moments that I thought folks might like to see.

    The meals were great and a big thanks again to Sarah for those. Putting a cap on attendees seems prudent given it's taking place at your home and not like most rallies or camp n rides set in public spaces with large kitchens or catering. Your call of course, but I thought the number of folks attending, including Marko and friends, was just right. Also, the group ride to dinner was a great idea and a nice break from the previous day's of mileage riding to get there; excellent company, food and beverages in an oasis out of the wind swept surroundings. :beer
