    Default Epic thread drift

    Ontario controls the stores and hours when one can buy booze.

    And, Canada has "free" health care.

    Oh, wait, .................

    Thanks for everyone's replies!

    I'll combine all ideas and then apply a mathematically rigorous benefit/cost ratio analysis algorithm to determine the appropriate outcome. Translation: The expected savings on my new car insurance deal did not materialize and my wife is not keen on large expenses around the Christmas season, so I'll look for a reasonable deal on some used rims.

    Trying to find a deal on OBS or WRX "16 rims before someone else snaps it up is like trying to find '72 240Z SU carbs and intake many years ago...

    Dave--

    Back to your original question. Most people in Michigan get by with just all season tires. That said, most everyone on this forum in MIchigan, have winter tires. I don't think I would work the Ranch stage with all seasons, but all the other stages are just regular roads that people use daily.

    definitely, ymmv

    see you there

    I submit that Minnesota "blue" laws are far less restrictive than Ontario's.

    And I long ago pitched that every event supps should have the local booze laws in them............

    Fixed it, Doug. I haven't heard of any other province passing such a law. I can imagine the uproar in the Western provinces. I can HEAR the roar should any state try a law like that.

    Believe that several states in the US only sell in state liquor stores where the state also control times and costs. According to Wikipedia, there are 19 states with varying types of control of liquor sales. Some allow sales outside of state stores and some don't. Some in include beer in state stores only and others allow beer and wine to be sold elsewhere.

    Living in Texas, we still have dry areas where there are no stores that sell liquor or beer for off premise consumption but, some have private clubs that anyone can join for a fee and some are totally dry. Quebec is not alone in their liquor laws!!

    So, Quebec is not alone in their liquor laws. Agree with Jimmy's suggestion to include local liquor laws in the event supps.

    Aah, but Dave: Doug and Bruce were referring to the requirement for snow tires in Quebec (remember snow tires, that's what the thread started out to be about).

    You're correct Kent but, what threads on SS ever stay true to their first post and title?? I was just following the current train of thought and make sure Bruce knew that Quebec wasn't the only area in north america that had archiac liquor laws.
