Dangit! family issue came up I cannot wiggle out of. Lets consider another one a couple months from now?

On a semi-related front, I think some of you have heard of AMEN group in Edmonton. They meet on a Thursday evening of the month & judging by the newsletter some very interesting projects & individuals. I'd love to go to meet some of the guys & see what they are working on but kind of a bugger round trip for that alone. I haven't thought this through but maybe just to kick the idea out - what do you think of a 'part way' meet-up? Maybe we pick a Saturday in Red Deer or maybe we hook it to the Wetaskwin Reynolds museum metalworking weekend in fall? Not a high frequency thing, maybe once to see how it goes? Would there be a Calgary appetite? If so I could bounce if off them to gage interest on their side. If I'm the only model engineering geek, that's fine too. (hey, its familiar territory LOL). Just wondering out loud.

Interested in attending tomorrow...always good to see/hear what others are up to.

Would also be interested in a pan-province meet in Ded Reer; I've always assumed the Edmonton folks have an easier time finding quality, used machinery and tooling but interested in their perspective and also see what projects they have/are working on.
