    So, I was wandering around in the Western Canada Forum, and I came across this thread:

    FanForce Forums » Western Canada Region » ForceFest 2005 Brainstorming

    It seems that the Edmontooiners went camping last year, but a bunch of other Fanforce people "crashed" the weekend, and "ForceFest" was born.

    They're planning another group campout for August Long Weekend, and it's basically completely open to FanForce people. It looks like they're planning to have it somewhere in the Kootenays this year.

    I thought I'd just post to bring it to everyone's attention. It sounds like an absolute blast. If people from Calgary are interested, we could organize carpooling/sharing of tents & coolers, etc. to share on gas costs and whatnot.

    If there are any questions about it, I don't know anything that isn't posted in that thread, so I would suggest asking your questions on that thread.

    If WE want to send some people, use THIS thread for planning local carpooling, etc...

    That is all. ;)

    I can rent a car for free on weekends with my work, so I'm down if people wanna help with the gas.

    Cool guys. It'd be sweet if some of our fellow Albertans can make it. :)

    If you have any Q's about this thing, visit the thread Veritate linked to, or PM me. :)

    Carpooling is probably the best way to get up there. It saves a lot on gas and keeps the whole thing really cheap.
