Anyone want to try for an afternoon meetup for this Friday?

I would be a "likely".

I have to wait a bit longer to book my exam retake but I should know by tomorrow or maybe this evening when that is. I'm reasonably sure it won't be that early so put me as a likely and I'll upgrade/downgrade that when I know more.

I've booked my re-take for the following Friday (after this one) so you can count me in. Have you driven by there in the daytime, though? I'm worried it might be really busy. But totally up to you. Thee are lots of other places to sit close by like the Evinrude or Lansdowne Place parking lots or we can sit on some graves across the street. ;-) I don't know anybody in there (yet).

Fox, you have to come; you said you'd bring me a chair. :D

Good, it will be nice to see you. The parking lot is huge. We can find an area were it is not busy.

Maybe we should be considering future in-person MUGs in Chapters? Until we get our regular meetings back.

I'd be open to Chapters but was thinking the mall might be better, more open. They have a Tim Horton's in there, too. Not sure how busy it'd be in the afternoon. I'm usually there in the evening when I am. Perhaps even a restaurant downtown or an outdoor cafe. Lots of restaurants have patios there. Food for thought. See what I did there? :)

The Publican House, near me, has a very nice outdoor space. Especially if you want to have a beer.

Hi Guys,
Kal and I are hoping to join you tomorrow. Hopefully the get together is still a go at the Pet Smart parking lot  Should be good weather for a sit outside and discuss Linux, our favorite operating system.
Since I will be driving, will also have a ham radio and monitor and make some noise on the Peterborough repeater for Bill.
See all tomorrow.

Sounds good Glen. It will be good to see you and Kal.
I will be tuned to the PBO repeater to listen, if you call. I will have a mag mount antenna on the car roof.

So we had Mike , Kal, Glen and myself at the meetup, this afternoon.
I was very nice that Kal and Glen were able to make it.  Friday afternoons is good for them to drive in from the Oshawa area, so I will try and do another Friday afternoon in maybe a couple of weeks time.

Crap, I forgot about the meeting tonight! :( I had it on my schedule but was visiting my brother and lost track of time. Didn't get home until about quarter to ten. Good that you had a bigger group than normal!
