    @Norman P sorry for the cold - probably the coldest weather we have had so far this winter and it just started
    and I'm patrolling tomorrow night AND saturday morning
    I'm expecting to see folks with frostbite :(

    that looks like its taken from one of the balconies at the Upper Hot Springs facing out across tunnel mountain and over the banff springs

    nice

    We are having a blast still. My their kids playing hockey on the small rink at the hotel (Banff Springs Hotel).

    Springs is nice
    Are there any snow sculptures in the town site yet ?
    Usually the first ones end up in the yard next to the high school down Banff Ave

    No sculptures just yet. Downtown Banff is a blast! We are heading to the Canmore Eagles game tomorrow night against Fort McMurray.

    too bad as the snow sculptures are something to behold
    but timing :)
    last year they had several like this one

    the squirrel was about 10-12 feet tall

    downtown banff they have tried to keep traditional with varying degrees of success

    its still nice esp outside high tourist season

    and watching them make them is as engaging as they are to look at
    if only you could have been about 10 days later but ... it is what it is

    I just want to say that I had such a great time tonight at the Calgary Xojo dinner meetup. It was great to put faces to names @Norman P @Eugene D @Andy B and
    @Peter S - we had a great 4 hour dinner conversation that was most entertaining and knowledgeable.

    It was great getting to know you fellas additionally and hope to see many others at XDC 2020.

    Anyone up for doing something like this with actual presentations & such once a quarter ?

    YES! Glad you brought it up again. I had mentioned it but wanted to talk further.

    we'd need a small venue of some sort where we could have presentations and then maybe go for a bite to eat
    ideas ?
    anything suitable in airdrie ?

    I'd be happy to sort that part of it out.

    Once the mountain passes are safer to travel in the spring, I could be up for attending as well.

    My oldest son lives in Edmonton, so I like to get out and visit as often as I can. This would be a great add-on to one of my trips.

    I may be out that way in early April as I have some things to deliver to a friend in Vancouver
    Maybe we could / should propose a meet up for that time in Vancouver area ?

    Sounds like a plan. Let me know if there is anything I can arrange at this end.

    I was posting before in this thread https://forum.xojo.com/24460-xojo-in-vancouver

    But maybe we need to start a new one?

    Jan 21 Pre-Release Testers, Xojo Pro outside listening to the crick...

    I added to that existing one

    I'd love to do something in the Calgary area, but I will be gone from late Feb until June. Obviously you're on your own until then, but I'll do whatever needs doing to get something together for the summer or fall!

    Yes, I would be interested in a presentation/lunch. It sounds interesting. It would likely be best to wait until June-ish until Andy is available :)

    I agree - having a local slave helper makes it easier :)

    I was thinking more along-the-lines of our group is smaller, and more people tend to have larger numbers of good ideas. Granted, Norman has many good ideas!
