Plain? It's Ron's fault, with the "Thinker's" pose!
Niagara from Montreal would be a straighter shot through New York (though you'd have to do customs twice...). It'll be next year in early February, the week after the Super Bowl. We do get a nice Ottawa and Halifax contongent!
I wonder if I could go to Niagara thru NY State... My biggest problem to go to Niagara would be passing thru Toronto which just that would take me at leat an hour coming by car. Albany is abuiot 3 and a half hours fomr Montreal... How far is Niagara/Buffalo from Albany?
Then again, if GMT East is held early March, I won't make it next year again. But you look like there is a good gang in there.
