    Hey all!

    Well us Edmontooiners were talking this weekend, and we thought that it might be a fun idea to make a road trip down to Calgary, to see if we can help you guys get on your feet and get a meeting under your belts.

    So we need a few things:

    - a meeting place

    - at LEAST 3 people from Calgary who can GUARANTEE that they will be able to make the meeting, otherwise it wouldn't be an "Official Calgary FanForce Meeting". We also don't want to drive for 6+ hours unless we are going to be meeting some people.

    - a set of dates that will work for everybody.

    So you guys will have to see if you can nail down a date where you can all meet up, and we will see if we can make a road trip down to meet you.

    Post here in the thread if you are interested in something like this, and what dates could work for you.

    MTFBWY!

    This sounds like a great idea. Any time is good for me. (I have no life).

    Maybe the 2nd of October? Its a Saturday. Not too late in the year,(maybe no snow).

    And that gives us all time to watch the DVDs at least 3 times.

    As for a location, maybe Deerfoot Mall. It is in the North end of town, close for the Edmonton guys. There is a foodcourt and a bowling alley.

    We could also maybe meet at my house. No foodcourt or bowling, but I have a BBQ (BYOBeef). I would have to check with my wife. I am the north end.

    But I can garantee that I will be wherever.

    I have been lurking on these boards for years waiting for the Calgary fans to get together. I will be able to attend a fan meeting in Calgary. Just name the date/time/location.

    So, where are we going to have it?

    we could go bowling at the Mall and have a BBQ at my place. Or go bowling and have pizza at the mall. Deerfoot mall, that is.

    What do you think?

    I'm up for almost anything. :)

    BBQ sounds like a good idea. Assuming you don't mind a bunch of strangers showing up at your place. ;)

    I'm free evenings and weekends. drop me an email KMBKomhyr at shaw dot ca. I haven't had time to check the boards often, so if someone could keep me updated, that would be good.

    Well are there still 3 people who are willing to attend a meet and greet at the mall or something?

    I will email Aegypticus to see if he can still make it.

    I'm still free most weekends. If Darth Paul is out, we could convene someplace else. Chinook Mall seemed better for most the last time Calgary tried to get together.

    It?s not the same as a BBQ but we could meet at one of the restaurants in the mall. There is a Japanese place and a East Side Mario?s.

    I was looking through the Edmonton board and it looks like several of the E-towners are action figure collectors. When you guys come down we should take you all to Chinook and Hobby west. Hands down the best selection of new and vintage SW stuff in Cowtown.
