OTTAWA, ON - October 2017 Meetup
« on: Sun, 15 January 2017, 14:38:21 »
UPDATED: This thread is now about the October 21, 2017 meetup. See posts at the end.

There has been some interest in an Ottawa-area meetup (Ontario, Canada).

I'm thinking a weekend or evening in February would work best.

Location to be determined.

Let's figure out who might be interested and what date/time works best.

People may be interested in coming up from Montreal, too, so some kind of carpooling arrangement could be made if that's the case.

I can bring boards from what's in my signature, if there are any special requests.

I'll be bringing my VE.A and can help drive people.

We can also use it as an opportunity to decide how carpooling/travel could work for the Toronto meet-up on February 18th, which I'm helping organize some parts of as well!

Why don't we do February the 4th? It's two weeks out from the Toronto meetup so people don't get overwhelmed with constant keyboard related events?

Hmm.. well, depending on how many people are interested, perhaps we'd be better off just carpooling down to Toronto for that meetup instead.

I suppose this is a bit of an interest check.  :cool:

Hey guys, I'm also in Ottawa and am interested in the idea of a meetup! My colleague, who's also a mechanical keyboard enthusiast, said he'd be interested as well.

I have two very little kids at home, so things are busy these days and I don't make it out to too many social events. But if you guys go ahead and plan something, definitely keep me in the loop, and I'll do my best to make it out.

Is there a particular day of the week that works best for you? I understand being a parent is a full time job but the rest of us are all pretty schedule-wise flexible, so you can really recommend what works for you and we'll work around that!

That's really good of you to accommodate! Generally, evenings after the kids have gone to bed (usually after about 8:30pm) are best. But these days, it's hard to commit to much in the way of social plans no matter when they are. I'd encourage you guys to plan something that's convenient for you. I'll probably have to make a last minute decision either way. If I end up not making it to this one, hopefully I'd make it to the next one :)

I think my colleague is a little more flexible, and he also mentioned he's got a buddy from Kingston who might come up if there's an Ottawa get-together. I'll try to get those guys on here so they can weigh in as well!

In which case since there's at least one person in this thread that cannot make it to Toronto (and colleagues), we should try and have an Ottawa thing. Middle of the week probably a better idea than weekend so people can spend their free time with their families. How about the first Thursday of February from 730-930pm?

It's looking good that I'll be able to make it out at least for part of the meet-up. Have you guys thought of a location at all? Depending on what part of town everyone's in, one thought I had was Pub Italia on Preston St. It's got a great beer selection, and it's never too loud.

Agreed about Pub Italia, they even have the nice spots on the back-side of the restaurant that are really private.

I'll call them tonight and see if I can make a reservation. I'll ask for 7 for now (I might bring a friend).

Sounds great! I'll aim to be there by about 8:30pm (after the kids are in bed :) )

Should work for me.

Any special requests for boards?

Might be a bit strange bringing them in to a pub :p

If you're up for bringing your HHKB out, I've been wanting to try out a Topre board for a while now.

I'll be sure to bring a 'Spill hazard' sign. :P

I'd still like to try the Monterey Blue Alps. But if that becomes to much to carry, you can just bring the HHKB. My friend is bringing his novatouch so you'll be able to compare, jmdaly!

And I forget who (either altis or kiwi), but someone said they'd like to try vintage blacks, so I've swapped around my VE.A from MOD-H's to Vintage Blacks.

Hi guys,

I'll do my best to be there. I have a WhiteFox that is still un-built with 65gr Zealios - I guess now I have an intense excuse to actually build it! I'll also try and bring some cool artisans (a couple otterophiles, a Fugu, a bunch of SUK Snappers, some KeyForge caps) and keysets or something. Hopefully GMK Hydro will be here by then. Also have a switch tester with some Cherrys and Gaterons.

I'll check if my roommate is available too, as he is quite into it as well. I also have a DCS set, an SA set, a GMK/Cherry set, and a flat OEM set (just the silly typewriter caps) if people have interest in trying different profiles out?

So is there an exact date for this? Is it February 9th or February 16th?

Damn. Looks like it's tomorrow. Not sure I can do it. Have fun though guys.

You don't have to bring anything, just the hangout and discussion themselves could be way cool.

I think the correct answer will be 'Topre' :P But please join! The reservation is for 7 but the table seats more! I was quoted 8, and not all of us are going to be there the whole time, so feel free to show up and try things out!

Totally didn't realize this was tomorrow, I should be able to make it though.
I have a midterm in the morning and an assignment I can knock out tonight to make time for it tomorrow. I'll try to be there around 7:30-8ish depending on transit.

I will bring my alps clueboard, hhkb and maybe my tkl. I'll also try to bring my camera to take some pics :)

Should work for me.

Next meet I'll do a little give-away... maybe 65g Zealios switches, or keycaps.

Let's say mid-October? This gives us enough time to get the word out and make sure that if someone wanted to come down from Montreal they wouldn't have any conflicting exams or such at the time?

Mid-October sounds good to me! I'm busy the evening of Oct. 13th, but otherwise am open from then on.

The week of October 23-27 is reading week in Ottawa.

How about October 20th? That way if someone is traveling they don't miss out? Or the 21st if we expect people from MTL to try and make it?

Both October 20th and the 21st work for me. I mentioned it to kamek, who came out last time, and he's interested as well.

I can make time for just about any day.  I might have some stuff to show off by October too!

Let's plan for October 20th.

I can see if we can use a space at Carleton if there are many of us.

That date works well for me, and finding a spot at Carleton is a great idea.

Should we post over on /r/mechanicalkeyboards on reddit to see if there might be some more Ottawa people over there who would be interested in joining?

Feel free. I don't use Reddit so someone else will have to.  :cool:

Cool, the post is here: https://www.reddit.com/r/MechanicalKeyboards/comments/6zw76n/news_ottawa_canada_meetup_on_or_around_october/?st=j7jbh2ua&sh=cacc34d9

Should we change the tentative date to October 21, the Saturday?

Might make it easier for anyone to travel from out of town, based on the Reddit post.
