Wish I could but stuck in Peterborough...my back is acting up. I used to go every year to help with judging Sat morning. I would then come home broke later that day! Note. Show opens around 10:00 on Sat (once judging is complete) and runs through till 5 or 6pm. Opens again Sun morning but 8-10pm reserved for photographers. Then opens up to everyone.
Back in the day when I was an active member of the LOS I used to go to all the shows. I remember there being a lot more but as they say the memory is the second thing to go. I absolutely loathe driving in and around Toronto so it would have to be worth my while, like someone with CP to deliver to me.
