Q?

Is there a bus service to the Amethyst Curling Camp?

A.

Yes.

There is a bus that travels from Thunder Bay and makes stops along the way (for northwestern Ontario corridor, down Highway 11 through Timmins).  The bus leaves Thunder Bay July 2nd (evening) and returns on Saturday July 8th/9th (early hours of the morning).

The bus transportation form can accessed and downloaded from the Registration tab. We ask that our bus transportation form also be mailed-in with your registration form. This bus is certainly a great assistance with transportation.
