I'm taking the greyhound so if Alec can pick me up and drive me back to the station like the last training session, that will be great.

Sure, I can do that no problem.

I can pick shiney up at the VIA station too if necessary.

Yup, I will be taking the train again. We could always do a sleep over, Friday Evening, Night, and Saturday.

I don't know about a sleep over mate, the Guelph police are pretty tough on sheep worrying. Wink

So what about training for the 2012 season. I would expect that we would not have access to that training site that Bear and Soggy used. So where in the world might have the terrain we could use.

There are some options - Finch's Field, but what might the others be??

There's a small field in the London area that I will be taking a look at.

Soldier of Fortune in Hamilton might be an option as well, they've got some good ground there. Might be worthwhile to hold a game down there next season anyway, see what the potential recruitment might be.

Never been there, but I hear they have some good urban areas, would be a change of pace for sure.

I was there four or five years ago, and judging by the pictures they've added a bunch of buildings, fortifications, etc. Could make for a good Bastogne game for when the snow flies.
