Westy fans in Peterborough, Ontario?

I heard about an unofficial gathering of Westy fans in Peterborough, Ontario this coming weekend (Aug 23/24, '08). Can anyone verify that, and point me to where there is some information on it?

Much obliged. Andrew

Peterborough Van gathering

I just joined this group so I'm sorry the answer is so outdated, the good thing is that there is an annual get together in Peterborough every year. It's the BusVolk Festival at Beavermead park. This year it''s on th 28-31 of August, this is a limited number event and all sites are prepaid. I have room for 50 vans and previous attendees have first crack at the sites.
This is the same weekend as the free Peterborough Folk Festival and the Ontario wake board competition on Little Lake. We have a shuttle bus going to the folk festival . Beavermead park is 5 min from downtown Peterborough so you can walk or ride a bike anywhere.
You can get more info at
