                  What I loved about this location is that it is across across the street from the Lakeshore Go line so it's easy for players from Oshawa to Burlington/Aldershot to go back home every night.

                  And out front of the hotel is Tim Horton's and restaurants; With a car, many more (like the Danish bakery) just south and east.

                    Thanks Erik for pointing this out. Yes. It is certainly a very strategic location and very convenient on many counts. Parking is FREE also. What more can you get.....

                    On another matter, we have just crossed 80 players and hoping to surpass 90 over this weekend.

                    If you are still thinking about joining, don't hesitate any further and come join us.
