Noir said he will have a "large bag of popcorn" but he said he is OK with folk bringing snacks.
if you wish to go (or need to cancel) please contact me or Ika ASAP so we can update the list and to make sure you reserve your spot! its on a first come first serve.

1. Ika (Tenatively, don't know if I'll have a job by then.)
2. Black
3. Rio
4. Dane
anyone whose name is past this line is considered on the "wait list". you are there just in case we fill up all the slots and someone cancels. so you can still get in on this.


P.S. if you where not at at the BBQ last, please read the last blog post. since its super important.
 P.S.S. Noir has changed the date to the 17th due to work.

not dead yet

hey guys.

so after chatting with a bunch of you at the BBQ, i have came to the conclusion that we will no longer be having our regular meetups. however we will still run events.
id also like to mention that folk wanted to have a way for us to continue to keep communication. and i completely agree.

so i opened  op a skype chat and also "made" a facebook group.  if you want to be added to either one of them (or both)  fire off the necessary info over to me so i can add you to them. i added who i could in my exhausted state. so im sure i missed some folk that i already have.

now i want you guys to help me with events by bringing them to my attention.

Noir, mentioned that there is  a  "direct to video" showing of  "friendship games" that if i remember correctly, he is hosting at his place in october 13th.
(Noir, if you are reading this. please tell me i got this correct, also i need your address so people can show up to this.)

one more note,
id like to thank everyone who came to the BBQ and loitered in my living room. i hope folk where not too uncomfortable. it felt like a bit of a tight squeeze. i hope my cooking was enjoyable. well... as enjoyable as frozen premade meat pattys and bulk cheap hotdogs can go anyways.


PS. im sure there was more i wanted/needed to mention but i will add them as it comes to mind.

a sad note.

ok guys.

I know everyone was either doing their own thing, or was up at the con. But last night, aside from Dane, not a single person showed up to the meetup. This saddens me. (I was also quite bored)

I would also like to mention a note given to me by Sentry box staff. This is important to everyone so,

"Back when you came to me asking about hosting your events at the store I did mention that if we needed the space for any gaming events I would unfortunately have to claim back the space for that. I've now had a roleplaying group ask to book the back room every Saturday night and so, as of September, we will no longer have the back room available for your group. I wish I had more space available for events in general, but in this case I have to prioritise groups that are gaming ahead of non-gaming events."

I guess the big question I have to ask is this, "Should I call it quits." with lack of funding to do the things I want to do, lack of new members showing up, and no meetup area any longer, what do we do? Do I hunt for a new place to meetup? Do I pack it in and just close the meetup group?

I WANT TO KNOW  YOUR OPINIONS.  please comment below to let me know.

Edit: The BBQ on the 5th is still on, never fear.

It's BBQ season yo

So we decided because we don't have too too many people in the group anymore, we wouldn't go through the hassle of booking a spot at the park this year. Instead we're going to have a nice little fire pit in I and Darcy's backyard and have an actual stove to cook things on.

So we decided on the 5th of September (which is already a meetup-night) at 6 till 9 (or whenever we make people leave.)
We're going to cautiously allow alcohol with the good faith that people won't over-indulge or drive home after drinking. (If you are going to drink and even consider driving, I'll be happy to keep your car keys and call you a cab.) There is a liquor store by the safeway in that strip mall, so please buy your own pick of drinks. There will also be minors around, so don't go offering your stuff to strangers.

Alright so to reiterate:
BBQ Party
Sept 5th 2015
Backyard 7407 20A ST SE (T2C 0S3)
Alcohol is allowed but please be responsible

Donations at the next meetup (22nd of August) would be greatly appreciated as we'll be providing the meat for the meat gods and marshmallows, soda, whatever other tasty items you want for your faces.

if you have allergies or a special diet requirement.(gluten allergy, vegan etc...) please bring your own meal. you can alternatively buy such items at the local Safeway that is nearby. i will be glad to prep whatever you bring me.

 DARCYS ADDENDUM: if you guys have extra lawn chairs and cooking skewers, please bring them along. we have only 1  skewer to knowledge and a few extra lawn chairs kicking about. i will also be inviting folk from the Otafest Pokemon League to join us.

Wildlife Rehabilitation Center GoFundMe

Hi guys!
Here's the link to the GoFundMe for the animal rescue I was talking about at the meetup.

Basically, I need to find a way to raise about $4000 for a microscope and a centrifuge for the Calgary Wildlife Rehabilitation Society. I'm really hoping you guys can help with donations, or at least getting the word out. In fact, telling your family, coworkers, friends, strangers on the street, ow whoever, is the best thing you can do to help.

Thanks guys!
