    Default Canadian Affiliate Cottage Weekend - September 5th-ish through 10th-ish

    Well, I just bought AffiliateWeekend.com, and I've been going on about doing this for a couple of years. So, let's start planning:

    The Canadian Affiliate Cottage Weekend
    Date: Wednesday, September 5th or so until around Monday the 10th or so...
    Where: Washago, ON, Canada on the beautiful Green River, just up the road from Casino Rama
    Why: Networking, obviously, plus relaxing and information sharing (or not)
    Potential Sponsors: Deckmedia, Ace Revenue, Gambling Wages

    I have two cottages side by side with lots of room. There are 9 bedrooms between them (well, 8 and a bunkie). There's great swimming and fishing, a big huge deck, a cool little restaurant in town, BBQs, etc...all that cottagey stuff. How many Canadian affiliates are out there? Who'd show up? If it ends up being me and Paul from Deckmedia drinking and fishing by ourselves, that's fine, but it's been done before.

    Potential Agenda:

    Day 1 (Wednesday, September 5th)

    Tim to pick up Paul from airport and possibly a couple of international affiliates. Arrive at the cottage. Do a bit of pre-drinking before lunch or dinner, depending on what time it is. Dan from Ace shows up. Make reservation at www.rcottage.ca since Tim forgot to bring food. Eat and drink too much wine. Return to cottage and build campfire. Fall asleep in Muskoka chair.

    Day 2 (Thursday, September 6th)

    Everybody up early due to passing out and jet lag. Breakfast beers and fishing ensue. Tim attempts to clean 2 bass and cuts finger. Fashions bandage out of duct-tape and toilet paper. Have bass for lunch. Afternoon nap. Wake up and repeat pre-drinking before dinner routine. Dinner at rcottage.ca again because Tim still forgot to buy food. More affiliates arrive in time for dinner. Campfire #2 complete with marshmallows. Wine, beer, scotch, etc...

    Day 3 (Friday, September 7th)

    Tim is deathly hungover. Tim has 2 grapefruit radlers and an advil for breakfast. Tim goes back to bed.

    Day 4 (Saturday, September 8th)

    More affiliates arrive maybe. Long day on sunning and swimming off the dock. BBQ'd chicken and burgers and hot dogs. Afternoon boat cruise. Dinner at Casino Rama steakhouse. Casino night.

    Day 5 (Sunday, September 9th)

    Breakfast at The Log Cabin or brunch at rCottage. Tim loads all affiliate managers and affiliates into the pontoon boat for the trip to Picnic Island. Dan packed the picnic because he is responsible. 3 hours eating, drinking and swimming, plus a diving board. Sunburns. Dinner at rcottage.

    Day 6 (Monday, September 10th)

    Most people leave. Tim gets in trouble from his wife.

    I entertain myself sometimes. The restaurant in town really is that good. Okay, so who's in?

    - Tim

    It's an hour and a half. You can either take the 400 to 11 to 169, or 404 to Woodbine to 48 to 12 to 169. Ceviche would be nice.

    You're not allowed for good reasons. If Celia can go, I can go.

    Guess you're not going then.

    I didn't even do anything!
    Not fair.
