OK. That makes three of us; two beer drinking guys who cast votes without a quorum and one guy who reads bylaws, or at least makes them up. What a start we have.

post #5 of 238

Actually, I think there have been countries start about the same way.

"Slave in a hospital"

 

Hmmm, that doesn't sound good. Well, if you need a doctor's note to be able to come to the meet I think that can be arranged.

post #10 of 238

I WILL ATTEND ONE OF THESE ONE DAY.

 

I missed the last two due to school...someday...someday.

post #11 of 238

post #12 of 238

My friend and I would attend this if you decide to host it. The last CanFest was an awesome experience for us and was very enjoyable overall.

post #13 of 238

For a meet to be sucessful as many Head-fiers as possible need to bring their gear. It's what meet are all about, sharing your gear so we all get to hear new stuff.
