    I was at an AGM in Windsor, but I can't remember what year it was. It's also been in Quebec City, the year after Windsor, I think (or before). It's also been in Edmonton too, but again, I can't remember the year.

    Gotta love how Windsor is described as being "western" Ontario. What's that make Thunder Bay?

    Well, that will be another SC I won't be attending. The last time I flew to Windsor from Alberta for an AGM, the flight was ridiculous. When I factor in the cost of paying for a sub for a couple days, and everything else, it's just too expensive.

    I guess I need a different job -- or hope that SA is in the western part of the US next year.

    You have to pay for a sub if you take a day off?

    What if you're sick or if there's a family emergency? Same thing?

    And is that true elsewhere in Canada and in other countries? (Does anyone here know?)

    We get sick days, and 2 days per year for family illness, but if we want to take personal days (max of 4 per year), we pay the cost of the sub (almost $200/day, including their benefits).

    Back to SC discussion...

    Yay Windsor!!! I know where I'm going next fall. ISU, please plan now to get all my fave skaters there so I get to see them all in one place (especially a certain pairs team who needs to have a GP on North America again sometime before Sochi, LOL).

    Too bad I no longer live in Ohio. That would have been a four hour drive for me.

    Even when flying on an Amerikan carrier to DTW (as opposed to flying AC to YQG)? Delta should have direct flights to DTW from YEG/YYC, or you can connect through ORD on American/United.

    Should be a really nice arena. The Windsor Family Credit Union Centre just opened a few years ago.

    A site that provides arena reviews for the travelling hockey fan has a few pics of the arena and some information on it:

    Oh you can get there. But sometimes to make the flights/connections work it requires more time, and time is money. Neither Lee or I live super close to airports, so we have to allow for driving time too. For instance, to make my flights work for Cdn Nats in London, the flight I had to take was 6 am, which means you go into the city a day early as the weather is too unpredictable to start driving say at 3 a.m. So, in that case, London was 2 extra days to make it work. It is what it is.

    Windsor is nice, may even be doable.

    Windsor operates a cross border bus, but it doesn't look like you can catch it at the airport in Detroit. Perhaps some locals FSUers will know about other options for those flying into Detroit.

    I miss attending Skate Canada. Maybe next year.

    this works out well for me, it's drivable. I'll have to plan on this one since I was unable to make it to Mississauga

    I just checked Expedia -- no direct flights from either Edmonton or Calgary, and all flights are over $800. Ain't gonna happen.

    For me it depends on wether I go the US or Canadian way.
    Go the US way and it means crossing the border at Sarnia/Port Huron and then again at Detroit/Windsor. Shorter driving time -- about an hour from PH to Detroit but who know how long the wait may be on the bridges.
    Go the Canadian way and it's 2 hours minimum.
    If I don't have my mom still living with me, it *could* be doable.
    Crazy about sports!

    awww. Happy for those who live close by or have an easy/cheap/short trip to the event. I'll have to wait until SC is in the west. It will be back at some point...and I'll be there in a flash.
