Eastern Ontario Maple Workshop
by Bryan Ex October 5th, 2015

Each year we host a one day workshop in eastern Ontario just North of Cornwall. This event is open to everyone that wishes to attend but is primarily geared toward Ontario producer members. This year's event will be held once again at Sand Road Sugar Camp in Moose Creek and feature both Abby van den Berg from Proctor Maple Research Center and our very own Jake Moser here on SBI. New this year will be a silent auction of rare or hard to get maple related items. We are still working on submissions so if you have something special to offer please let us know. 100% of proceeds go back into promoting local maple production. Flyer and agenda attached.

What I learned out of this.

So here are few things I would like to pass on that I learned this weekend speaking at the Eastern Ontario Maple Producers Meeting.
1. When arriving into Canada and you say you are teaching a maple class expect to be asked to go inside.
2. When asked if you are getting reimbursed, better either have the work visa paperwork, or you don't even mention you are the teacher in the forementioned.
3. Believe it or not Not all Canadians are happy go lucky (customs)
4. Don't try to joke with the customs agent because she don't give a sh#$
5. After finally making it through customs and stopping at a rest area to use the bathroom you see this unbelievable sight that will make you pee yourself.
Here it is....... After having an experience with a grumpy customs agent you see a lady smiling at the rest area while picking up gargage. She says good morning to you and then states " I love that dancing queen song by abba thats playing right now eh?"
yup I'm immature and busted out laughing at this point.
6. The folks from Eastern Ontario are really great folks and am honored I was able to attend.
7. My wife which had never been to a casino took $1 and made it into $150 for me
8. And finally when you are motivated to get home after a long day you can make a 2 1/2hr trip into a 1 hr 45min trip using back roads.

Thanks All for the memories today!
