    I already booked a room at the Delta Okanagan- the closest hotel (Possibly the Official hotel??). Not the cheapest place in town, though.

    I may book another place, just in case they bump us- it has happened before.
    I know. But I do not approve. And I am not resigned.

    The Delta Okanagan is really nice - I stayed there on a work trip a few years ago. Don't eat in the restaurants, though (mega $$$).

    However, it has a casino attached to it. Everyone who went to Skate America in Everett knows how much fun that is

    If you drive up to Abbotsford (through Lynden), you can go along the Trans-Canada to south of Hope, take the Coquihalla highway to Merritt, and then thake the Okanagan connector highway over to Kelowna. It would probably take about five hours from the Canada-US border.

    It should be 4 hours or less from the border at Abbotsford, not five (per experience and web info). The Coquihalla and connector are pretty fast driving (unless there's nasty weather).

    Google Maps says 5 hours, 10 minutes taking I-5 to Bellingham and then heading over the border to Abbottsford and north:

    The connector from Merritt can have really seriously nasty fog. The road is good, but I've had to do that bit at 30km/hour because of fog. Just leave a little extra time in case. The Manteo is a great hotel. The Coast hotel on the main drag (I think it is the Coast Capri) is quite old.
    A good rant is cathartic. Ranting is what keeps me sane. They always come from a different place. Take the prime minister, for example. Sometimes when I rant about him, I am angry; other times, I am just severely annoyed - it's an important distinction. - Rick Mercer

    While surfing the net, I noticed how centrally located the arena is. And so many coffeehouses! And there's a 20K race in Penticton (which I've never been to either) on Sunday (so, I skip the Gala--boohoo).

    I'm going...

    Hmmm... if I can have LadyNit and SilverFox sitting on my lap as we all sip quality BC vino, this might be quite interesting.
