A route change like that would avoid the crossing at Bay/Queen's Quay, as well as the multiple crossings (Simcoe/Queen's Quay, Simcoe/Lakeshore, Simcoe/Bremner, York/Bremner, Bay/Lakeshore and Bay/Harbour) of the existing route.
So we'd save on waiting time as everyone gets held up at lights, and simplify the work con security provided at the last minute this year. And that was a lifesaver.
Anyone else have thoughts? #TourDeFur
For starters, I'm going to need more helpers, and get them aboard earlier.
Probably should get a loudspeaker as well.
And if this group is going to be that big, guess we should do more to avoid traffic lights. Maybe start on the hotel side and walk down the driveway, or drop Roundhouse Park in favour of HTO Park. The Music Gardens might be a bit far though.
Just went back and check the number of fursuiters we had at each Furnal Equinox #TourDeFur event since we started running it in 2017.
We had 42 that first year
We had 46 last year
HOW did we get 130 this year!?
Was it returning to a route with less road-crossing? With short variations that were more accessible? Was it moving to Saturday (admittedly a last-minute change due to the weather)?
If we can expect that size, things will have to change next year...
