That would be really cool, if I was MUCH closer to Coney Island, or at least in the area!
Best of luck with the event!

I'm still confused, is this event in Manitoba? If so, can you provide more details? If not, why are you asking here?

Coney Island is near Kenora I believe - hence the request through the MBGA.

OOOOHHHHHH!!!! I thought you were referring to Coney Island in New York State!!!! I'm not familiar with Coney Island in Ontario. I've only been to Kenora twice.

I was as confused as the others.

This makes more sense now. Information helps Very Happy

Is there another Coney besides the one across from Kenora?

Yes, there's a very famous amusement park outside of New York City. I think this is where everyone's confusion is coming from. (and why yellow_sunflowers wanted you to fly her there and glacier_ice wanted a window seat).

Thats too funny - I never knew there was a Coney Island in Ontario. Yes, I was referring to the one in New York! Funny stuff.
I won't be able to make it as I have a dragonboat festival that weekend.

I really didn't know what was going on. I assumed there was something much closer but since the humour was heading off the tracks and heading to New York, I just flew with it. Very Happy

Sounds like fun, but I'll be travelling through the US that day. Driving back from the Toronto area and making a loop through Columbus, Indianapolis, St. Louis, Kansas City and Omaha. 10 States to add to my cache map. Smile

I think we're going to be at the lake on the 24th (Beauty Bay). If you still need some help, the geopups and I can probably catch the ferry over. I've been out here for 19 years and still haven't been to Coney Is. yet!
