John and Betty Beddows and the BNAPS Golden Horseshoe Regional Group, your hosts
for BNAPEX 2011, take this opportunity to invite all BNAPSers to the city of North
Bay, Ontario, often referred to as the Capital of the Near-North. North Bay is
situated on Lake Nipissing, a 2½ to 3 hour drive north of Toronto via
Highways 400 and 11. It is also served by shuttle buses from Toronto International
Airport, highway buses and one train per day to/from Toronto.
The Clarion Resort Pinewood Park Hotel, venue for BNAPEX 2011, is located five
minutes from the center of the city. North Bay's largest convention facility, it
can accommodate four hundred people. Among the many amenities are a heated pool and
free wireless Internet access. The rooms are all spacious, bright and air conditioned
with individual controls. The exhibition facility will comfortably accommodate twenty
dealers and one hundred and sixty exhibition frames.
Plan a vacation in this beautiful part of the country and make BNAPEX 2011 part of
your trip. Bring your golf clubs - there is a beautiful eighteen-hole golf course
adjoining the resort - and/or fishing gear - many excellent fishing lakes and rivers
are within a short drive - and/or walking shoes - Algonquin Park starts just at the
edge of town. Also within easy driving range are Manitoulin Island and the Sudbury
Canadian shield area.
