Unfortunately, I have a memorial service to attend on the 12th, so can't make it, otherwise I certainly would go. A good excuse to stop in Red Deer and visit my 3 grandkids too.
BUT!!!! The end to camping? Heck, I am doing a 4 night canoe trip the following weekend, and we always keep using the trailer at least until Thanksgiving.
Boondocking is no issue to me at all, as 90% of my camping is off grid. The last couple years, the Escape Rally is the only place I had hookups. Didn't really want them there, but there was no option, short of not staying with the group.
Being squeezed in with a social crowd is no issue with me. Last weekend we camped at the Roots and Blues Festival in Salmon Arm, and we were quite tight in there, but everyone was there for the same reasons, so all was just fine.
