    The forecast is for rain on Monday. If it looks like it's going to be wet, maybe Tuesday would be better. We'll have to keep an eye on the weather.

    Yes it would be.

    Also, we need to set up times for walks in the park. I was thinking we should do every Saturday at Springbank. I'm good for after 2:00 PM. We can also hit other parks on Sundays too.

    I'll be at the park at 4 pm Saturday. It looks like starting next week I'm working overnights, so I should be able to get to any daytime events, provided I can get enough sleep that day. I'm also going to make sure I have the night before May 9th off. I am NOT available the first weekend in May, so I'll miss Free Comic Book Day. :(

    A reminder that we're meeting in Springbank Park Saturday at 3:00 PM.

    Also DarthPapa I could bring the rebel trooper costume if you want. You just need grey pants.

    my co-workers all seem to think a colouring contest for adults would be a good idea. That's the feedback I got from the poster I put up.

    If anyone wants to colour, I don't see why they can't. But there may not be a prize available.

    We got an e-mail from Piero who is attending the event with family and want to volunteer at the event too.


    Also, I'll be going to B.A.'s Comics tomorrow to pick up prizes.

    Thanks for the update. I'll cross BA's off my list.

    Will there be a volunteer meeting? From my experience running events it may be beneficial to get together everyone who will be helping with the event and do a run-through so we're all on the same page.

    I've got another one of those kids laptops for a donation this year. It's the Clone Trooper version.
