The votes are at 100% yes! Let's get on with it!!!

I've been privileged to be part of a great group that now meets on a regular basis, which began because of the same idea at another Mac forum I belong to. I have made some very good new friends because of one initial meet 'n greet.

This is a wonderful idea because we would all have something in common with which to interact - the Mac.

I'm up for a meet any time!

Yeah 'Sauga - I thought the same. I used to do it with the Design staff & other Macfriends @ my old job and we all used to reserve tables @ the local feed bag and have jokes. Thought that we could do the same here eventually.

All assumptions that the greater population live in and around the GTA. We could make it a day for sure.

The polls are still open...

I've got two points:

1) A Saturday - I live in Ottawa;
2) Where? I know Toronto from the subway lines - location is going to have to be easy for everyone because hetting to Markham (for example) would be a bit of a ride on the TTC.

JG4 -

I am in total favor of running something downtown, although I may favor something that is not so hard to find parking @ - as you may get the shock of your life when you see how much it costs - and how parking authority gives out tickets like junk mail - wow.

Although, we could find something outside of downtown and still be along a subway line... I'll brainstorm.

I would strongly suggest a weekend - almost exclusively.

Does this mean that there IS interest?

I am up for it. Don't know if I would go to Toronto though (completely non-SARS related).

How about a series of regional meetings? I am in Ottawa...and I know there are several Ottawa area ehMacers online here.

Just a thought.

I'd love to hook up... I missed the last Ottawa meeting due to travel problems. I have a car now and would be into a soiree in Ottawa any time.

Er.. I don't know, I'm kind of shy.
There's a bit of a comfort level for me keeping my "digital life" seperate from my "analogue life", if that makes any sense.


Hmmm.. maybe if there were free drinks for the Mayor! ;)

I'm definitely up for a meet. I'm part of the same group as Mississauga meets up with. I can say without hesitation that it's been a blast everytime.

I'd love to meet up with the folks at ehMac. Would be cool.

I'd be all for it, except, well I'm like a day's drive away. That is kind of a problem. Oh well, maybe we can all meet up in the ehMac chat room sometime? Go iChat! Yes, No or should we make a poll? ;)

Toronto is not a viable meetingplace for me, however if I could hook up with a driver headed that way, I could go for it.

And for those who are wondering, the Ottawa meets (both of them) were rather small. Precisely 2 people and I was one of them in each case (Jaguar Day, and the first meeting time in Jan 2001)

An Ottawa meeting sounds very doable too, as there are several of us here.

I agree that a Saturday is probably the best day for such a thing, in a general view of things.

And as for enticing the mayor out of his electronic world of ehMac, A few free drinks can be arranged, I imagine


:cool:

looks like I may just have to qualify this as a YES, there is interest in getting together - and maybe start staking out some spots. will do in the next few days. In the mean time.. keep the votes coming... I guess?
