I guess you're referring to the Victoria Day weekend. Is the Osoyoos rally normally held that weekend? I know one year it was a week later than usual.

The early June we were there a bunch of years ago we came from the east. The bridge at the entrance had washed out, repairs were a few days from being finished and on top of that Going to the Sun Road had an avalanche that wasn't cleared yet. Couldn't go to a campground. We turned north up to Banff and beyond, came down on the west side a week later, stayed at Apgar, great drives over the mountains, etc.

Yes, the Victoria Day long weekend. The rally is the week after that, and only for the last two years. Two years ago Tammy set it then to be able to take in her daughter Erin's grad ceremonies. Previous to that it was the first full weekend in June, but booking Nk'Mip was a bit more open a week or two earlier.

Hmm, good to know; thanks. I'd like to go to Jasper and Banff next year; maybe I'll try to go there before the rally and not afterward.
