'Cause we might as well!
Hey gang,

I know we've tossed the idea around of having another meetup soon, since the last one was such a hoot - feels like about the right time to get the ball rolling on that!

It would be great to do something together during the festive season. Even better would be if we could time things so that aegispolis could join in.... he's a classic Calgarian mefite!

To that end - what does everyone think about Dec 27? Seems wise to try for something AFTER Christmas, when we all stand a reasonable chance of being free.

Looking forward to seeing everyone again!

I love hoots! Sadly, I'm out of town for the entire greater Xmas/NYE period, but I'm in for the next one in February or so!

Didn't make the last one unfortunately. Would love to attend, however out of town Dec 22nd-30th.

I'm not going anywhere, so I'm pretty easy on dates and things.

OK, great! Thanks for getting back to me, everyone.

It now looks like I'm going to be busy on the 27th. And if it's better for arcticseal, maybe we can move the date around a bit. How would Dec 20 or 21 look for everyone?

I could likely make it for a little while one of those nights

Either of those is good for me.

An idea: would anyone be interested in coming to an East coast-style kitchen party on the 21st? I guess that's this Wednesday - whoa! The month has really flown by!

I play with a gaggle folks every Wednesday at Fionn McCool's in Eau Claire market every Wednesday night. This Wednesday (the 21st) is our last session for the year, so it promises to be a real hoot. If anyone has an aversion to fiddle music, though, this might not be an ideal venue, haha.

We could meet a little bit before the music fires up, so that I am not tied up with that & can properly visit & chat. But if anyone wants to stick around for the music, they easily can. The music usually starts around 9pm, so how about we meet for 7:30?

Apologies for the short notice, lemme know whatcha think!

UPDATE: It looks like I'm gonna be busy on the 27th now.

A thought: does anyone have plans for NYE? I'm not up to anything so far.

So, this didn't really happen then?

I think it kinda fell apart. The holidays are hard for meetups is my takeaway.

Maybe we should try for late January?
