Do we need polls to figure out what everbody would like to do? I could set them up using the list above (Saturday morning - afternoon and Sunday).

If nothing esle it would give us a better idea about places to go.

I'm thinking that where we go is not real critical, meeting new folk and sharing of ideas (and fun) is the main idea, at least it is for me.

I think somebody who knows how should set up a poll for three locations: Saturday morning in or close to Calgary, Saturday afternoon in or close to Calgary, and Sunday is more wide open. I also think you should only vote if you are making a fairly firm commitment to attend. My $.02

I suggested a while back that we consider a BBQ at Bowness park. Since it will have more photo ops than say a typical calgary backyard.

The only concern would be a portable BBQ. I don't own one, but I might be able to borrow one from a family member.

I agree - Bowness park could be a good spot for a BBQ - We have a small camping BBQ but that's it

Votes are also in.

Wow.......It looks as if everyone is thinking along the same lines in terms of where to go thus far.

I too like the park idea. I think most folk now have natural gas BBQ's, not propane. I do have a portable that can cook for at least 6 though.

For the day or just the BBQ.

I know my wife would likely come to the BBQ.
