Anyone for Spain Meets Canada Flamenco Festival?

I'm wondering if anyone is up for car-pooling to The Spain Meets Canada Flamenco Festival in Saskatoon on Sept. 21st. Also sharing accomodation....

If I go, I will likely be renting a car and I would like to go to the concert on the Friday and coming home late on the Sunday evening or very early on the Monday morning. I'm also open to going after work on the Friday and missing the concert just to be in time for the workshop.

If interested please email and let me know what works for you.
