    I wasn't actually there - we went up to Ottawa for the weekend to visit the grandkid.
    But last Saturday I attended the Quinte Chapter of OMSPAs official first tapping ceremony at Bata Maples in Frankford, and spoke with the organizers. Everyone said it was well received.

    Hastings Stewardship Council also had a "History of Maple Sugaring" talk last Thursday in Ivanhoe. Apologies for not getting the announcement for that on here. It too was well received.

    Put out 10 'testers' just for fun with it predicted to get so warm yesterday. Stuck around the low-lying swampy area. Some promising signs. May pound in some in those kinda spots on Saturday and hope for an early Sunday-Monday run. Located just North of Prescott, Ont.
