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.

Agreed, October 21st will allow for more flexibility.

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.

Blue Alps would be killer (I don't know the differences between regular and monterey ... but whichever is nicer? haha)!

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.

Alright. I've just made sure that I'm bringing something very special from the topre world to the meetup. But that's all. I don't think my wallet can handle any more topre purchases this year haha.

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.

Hey, too bad you'll miss it, but I'm sure we can organize another one in the New Year! It would be fun to get something like this going a couple of times a year.

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.

I already messaged TBP yesterday. They haven't responded yet. If I don't get a response by about 6-7pm tonight, I'll just drop by and ask them what's up.

Otherwise, any other ideas?

Tomorrow? As in Sunday? Been keeping an eye on this thread for a while but I'm confused, when are we actually meeting?

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.

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?
