How to get to Morrisburg
From the 401 take exit 750 at Morrisburg. Follow signs to town about 1km
from highway overpass. (You will be turning RIGHT into town if you are
coming from Toronto, and LEFT into town coming from Montreal). Turn left at
the lights and drive another 1 km approx. On the left side of the road, you
will see the MacIntosh Inn. It is well marked and you will already have seen
the signs directing you to it. Drive safely!
The Hotel number is: 613-543-3788
Vio and I will be around and the contact person to speak to at the Inn is
When You Arrive
Someone at the front desk will direct you to the conference room and give you your keys and room number. You may want to drop your “stuff” off so you don’t have to lug it upstairs or downstairs.
THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO REMEMBER IS THAT WE ALL WANT TO RELAX AND HAVE FUN!!
You will receive a folder upon arrival with class descriptions and schedule as well as some useful information about the town.
This is YOUR event. You have paid for all of the classes, it is your choice whether to attend them or not. If you feel you have too much on your plate, or that a class may not be beneficial to you, you may opt out and go for a long lunch or a nap or a Jacuzzi. (You need to book Jacuzzi times with the front desk.)
Or you may want to continue working on something that has piqued your interest. And even though you may choose to work on something else, you will benefit just from listening. The instructors will be willing to answer questions and help you any time you need it, not only during their class time.
This is our seventh MPCG gathering and we feel every one has been very successful. If you have any questions, concerns or comments, come directly to Margi or Vio. We will do our very best to help you.
