On Saturday night we'll be doing an open mic night. This is your chance to show off your hidden talents. You can perform anything you want in any language, Sikhi or non-Sikh related. So come prepared with your song, poem, magic trick, joke or story! (No prior talent required)

After a lot of hard work (Thanks Meera, Hartaarn and Tanveer), the new Toronto Sikh Retreat website is online. We're just finalizing the registration section and that will go live soon. But in the mean time, please do check out the new site.

We've decided to add an extra day to the retreat this year.
We used to do the retreat on long weekends in the past. While we loved the extra day, we were always competing with lots of activities around town. So we're now doing the retreat on a weekend in January where there's probably nothing else going on. So you don't have the excuse of mid-terms, weddings, vacations to keep you from attending. :)
So even though its not a long weekend we've decided to go from Thursday to Sunday. This will make it easier for those flying into Toronto just for the retreat to justify the expense and trip. Also, it will give us lots more time for discussion and activities. Lastly, it will let finish up early on Sunday and allow for people to get back home at a decent time.
We're excited by the opportunities an extra day allows us. Stay tuned for details on the schedule and programs.
We've already had lots of emails asking about when we'll be opening up registration for the 2009 retreat. We're just in the process of finalizing the website and updating the registration and payment engine. We hope to have it all up and running by early next week. Drop us an email and we'll send you a notification we're online.
We'll be doing early-bird pricing so be sure to sign-up early!
