First Meetup[edit]

Our first Wikipedia meetup in Calgary[1] took place on Monday, May 15, 2006, 5-7pm(ish), at the Good Earth Café (1502 - 11 Street SW). It was part of a (not much) larger “Calgary Web Technologies Meetup”.

There were four Wikipedians in attendance (please add yourself to this list):

Location poll[edit]

Please indicate your preferences for the part(s) of the city and types of place (e.g., coffee shop, pub, etc.):

  • Inner city (downtown, Connaught, Sunnyside, Kensington, Inglewood, Mission). Non-smoking. Coffee/tea shop. I can make my work space available (Arusha Centre: 106, 223 - 12 Avenue SW) - we often host public meetings there and have a decent net connection (don't know about wireless in the building). —GrantNeufeld 09:46, 22 April 2006 (UTC)[reply]
  • Anyplace near a C-Train station is a-ok -Dr Haggis - Talk 05:38, 17 May 2006 (UTC)[reply]
  • As above, Inner city, C-Train is good. --Crossmr 06:03, 14 June 2006 (UTC)[reply]
  • well, you know i'd have to plug haymarket cafe: downtown, two blocks from stampede/victoria park c-train. frymaster 21:46, 22 November 2006 (UTC)[reply]
  • Somewhere in the southwest, downtown would work fine, preferebly in some kind of enclosed space. 20:46, 2 May 2007 (UTC)

  • Lancaster Building downtown is good. Connected to TD Square (somewhere around Play, Rogers and those), near to food court with hotspot available. Calvinhrn 06:07, 1 July 2007 (UTC)[reply]
  • Eau Claire is good... not too long before it's gone though. --Carlsonmark 20:05, 18 September 2007 (UTC)[reply]
  • Prefer downtown but can live with "anywhere". Coffee shops are good.
