We need to pick a date and time between July 17 and July 19 and a location.

Alright! We've got a few--let's see some hands! How about the Hop in Brew?

I'd love to come. That weekend should be fine. I don't drink so I've not been to the Hop in Brew, but if that's where the meet up is, happy to come downtown.

Any of those dates is fine, and the Hop-In-Brew (which is, I think, where we had the MeFi Meetup last year?) is a great choice. I'm in, and can possibly drive others from south of Calgary.

Any date but the 18th and I'm in. And the Hop In Brew's perfect for a meetup.

I might be able to make the 17th, but don't plan anything around me. I'm probably going to the Toronto meetup on the 18th and I'm coming from Yellowknife. I've got my YZF->YEG ticket booked. Give me a reason to come to YYC. :)

It's usually pretty packed on Friday nights, so how about Sunday the 19th?
posted by RGD at 4:47 PM on June 4, 2009

Sorry. Out of town on the 19th.
posted by angiep at 10:06 AM on June 5, 2009

Maybe 17th with an early start to beat the crowds?

Sorry about my previous message about being out of town. Took Stupid Pills this morning. Am okay for the July 19th. Out of town in June on the 19th.

Early start would be wonderful - I've got a 2.5 hour drive home afterward. Still available for any of those days.
posted by arcticwoman at 3:13 PM on June 5, 2009

Okay, early start on the 17th!
posted by RGD at 3:57 PM on June 5, 2009

Good call on the location, I'll be there.

Can't make it. Have fun everyone!

I'll come again if I'm in town. Was fun last year. Knowing the Hop n' Brew, if we're in there before 9, there should be no problem. If someone's planning on making reservations, the owner's name is Dick. He'll help you out.

The Hop 'n Brew was perfect for the last time we did this. And I should be good that weekend. Thanks for organizing RGD!

maaaan, I really wish I could go but I leave town right after stampede, and am gone until the end of the month... maybe I'll text a hello from the U.K.!

yup. so psyched that there's a cowtown mefi meetup. (just moved here from the wet coast)
posted by bumpkin at 6:24 PM on July 10, 2009

Oh crap, I double-booked myself. Looks like I can't make it after all.
posted by arcticwoman at 2:34 PM on July 14, 2009

Would love to make it!

I am playing at The Marquee room (Amazing local band Heat Ray are having their album release party, and I'm opening).
posted by Quartermass at 10:58 AM on July 17, 2009

Sorry, I should clarify - Heatray is tomorrow, but being in Lethbridge/purgatory, I'm stuck here until then.
posted by Quartermass at 11:01 AM on July 17, 2009

I'm here, with my beard and my dark, stripey shirt, drinking a coke.

forced evac at work means I just got home... be there around 8!
posted by variella at 5:51 PM on July 17, 2009

Thanks for a lovely evening, everyone. I had a great time and you were all as awesome as I could have hoped. I'll make sure all the photos I took get posted to flickr at around 1:30 on Sat.

If you didn't know the iPhone camera sucks, you will soon. Sorry.

That was fun, guys!

It was a great time - thanks for organizing, RGD.

I note that Brandon Blatcher has since dumped me as a spouse...guess I shouldn't have done the shout out.
