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?

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.

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?

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.

Alright, I'm bringing two keyboards. A Realforce 89U JIS with BKE domes and Silence-X Rings and a Realforce 87U 10th with 55g domes and purple silent sliders. That way people can sample Topre in off-the-beaten-path flavors.

I can bring a JIS 30g Topre 108UH, 45g 87U, and HHKB to round out the Topre field.

Can also bring Blue Alps and anything else people request from my sig.

Could bring Monterey as well, though that board no longer has a case so it's officially in the "project" category.  :-X

Very cool. I haven't had a chance to see much in the way of Alps in person, so that would definitely be interesting.

Does it still look good for you to be able to get some space at Carleton? Once we have a location confirmed, I'll post back over on reddit and see if we can get some of that gang out as well.

Trying to find the correct person to ask. I was hoping to even get the room we use for maker-space stuff there as it'd be well-suited for us.

We're coming up on the end of this week. We should nail down the location this week I would think before the final round of reddit posts/notifications starts going out to people? :O

Worst case scenario we can ask The Blurry Pixel?

Also, my friend who came last time will come this time again and bring something new he built in the interim.

Good call. Altis, how's it going on getting space at Carleton? I'd never heard of The Blurry Pixel, but that definitely looks like a cool alternate location! My friend who came last time may also join as well, but he's still unsure about his availability.

i want to join this time around very badly, I have been hoping for an event like  this to come to Ottawa since I bought my first mech last winter. Maybe its best I miss this one as in Feb I will have my tada68 to bring with me. Looking forward to joining you guys next time around. Ill be looking at the reddit pics from the meet in serious envy.

So, basically after getting run around, the closest thing to an answer is that no, they don't really like hosting events on campus unless it's some kind of official thing.  :(

The Blurry Pixel is a pretty fun little place downtown. They might be into that sort of thing, but I'm not sure how crowded it might be since it isn't all that big.

BTW all I have currently is a cheap Outemu Blue board and my Mitsumi, which I think I'll bring. I'd love if someone could bring buckling springs though, I've been eager to try them out.

Oh jeez, talk about short notice lol. Well I might be a little late as I had some errands to run today and I still need to go home and pick up my keeb. Let's hope I'm able to make it out though! :)

Sorry I had a stupidly busy week at work so my extracurriculars took a back seat.

Booking for 10 at the blurry pixel 2pm tomorrow set!

I thought it was going to be for the evening.  :'(

I had midterms this morning and afternoon. Only just got out. FeelsBadMan.  :(

That's rough man, hope midterms went well. For the next one, let's try to establish a location and time well in advance. That should help ensure that everyone can make it out.

Thanks. I wasn't supposed to have them but 4 midterms in 3 days created a conflict for people so they made two of them on the Saturday instead.

I was sure someone said 6pm ish somewhere.  :(

Ah forgot to post an update!

It went really well! I feel everyone enjoyed it and learnt at least a few new things.

Yes, we should meet again and February to allow Altis, jmdaly's friend, you, thegreaticedrake and halverson to make it out. Also to allow 27 to bring his new kustom.

I forgot to take my camera (I was coming off a pretty hectic week), but here's a gallery of everything everyone brought: https://imgur.com/a/Z19AK

Oh cool! I was waiting for you to post the pictures you took! I ought to bring my camera out to the next meetup too. :)

btw, my main keeb right now is an Aitalk Z-88, it's just one of those cheap Chinese boards, and goes by different names depending on who licenses it out. However, it has N-Key Rollover, RGB backlighting, doubleshot keycaps, and Outemu Blue Switches which are plate mounted and replaceable. A good value for the $60 I paid for it :)

Agreed! It was a lot of fun, and I think the location worked really well too. Thanks for sharing the pics! We definitely had a neat collection of boards.

Hey that looks like it was a great time! I can't wait to join the next meet. Was it everyone's first time meeting from the area? How was the venue?

Any talk of a February meetup?
I've been lurking, but I'm keen to collaborate and enjoy some keeb-spotting.

I don't think there's been any talk since the last meetup, but it would be great to organize one. Might be good to try for nearer to the end of the month to allow for enough time to plan and settle on a location.

So, I'm trying to coordinate this thread and the Canadian mechanical keyboard discord. After yesterday's Mini-meetup and recieving a decent amount of interest for a mid sized meetup, maybe late fall/early winter?
