    my two cents:
    in kingston, during what part of the spring or early summer do the 
    mosquitoes emerge?  I am originally a minnesotan and evenings are pleasant 
    there until about mid-may to early june.  then the "state bird" begins to 
    make appearances, and you cannot leave the screened interiors after sunset 
    without repellant or you risk being eaten alive. (even with repellent, to go 
    outdoors is a risky venture.)
    minnesota is known as the land of 10,000 lakes (although they really number 
    more than 13,000)
    ontario surely has many times that number of lakes (although I am not sure 
    about eastern ontario.)
    I think when deciding on dates for an event which will be outdoors we should 
    take into consideration these not-so-small-nor-insignificant insects which 
    for those of us accustomed to their wrath may seem bothersome but for others 
    (western europeans for example) would represent a weekend of pure hell.
    clear skies!
