Northern Chapter

This chapter of OPAS covers the area north of the south end of Lake Simcoe from Kincardine in the west to Bancroft in the east.

These borders are more for convenience than form. If you are near a "border" of a Chapter, there's nothing stopping you from belonging to both Chapters.

That's a great idea Zan. The only problem is that now I have to make some friends. :-)

I joined because I am more than willing to get up there in all seasons. Have tent will travel :) I spent one summer painting at friends' cottages up there the deal was they let me camp on the grounds and they get a pick of one of the paintings I do :) It was a blast. I don't know why I didn't repeat it!!

I have joined the Northern Chapter because my parents have a year round cottage just south of Bancroft and I would love to get to a paint out up there somewhere.

Athough we have not met Jane, I would love to venture to your island, too.

Jane's Island is a dream place. I hope to take you up on your offer this summer Jane. Thank you so much.

I summer on a little island in Muskoka so am happy to have company painting in the area.

Hi Marinus,

The chapter is just being formed, so nothing has been cast in stone yet. The chapter deals with a line roughly from Kincardine to Bancroft and north, so it certainly includes Muskoka. 

For the chapter to work, it needs members like you to call for paint-outs, go to other members paint-outs and to otherwise involve yourself in the success of the group.

I hope to join you in some activities this coming year.
