Yeah I was thinking red deer since it was closer to me and I don't know much about Calgary. If you know anyone else interested get them on here, maybe we can figure something out!!

That's my situation exactly too! Hah :)

I see that it's been almost a year and we haven't managed to do this yet :(

Hey chappie and Quahtreenuh, would you be interested in an Edmonton mini-meetup? We could meet somewhere accessible by ETS, or I have access to a car if no one else does. I'm in contact with another Edmonton Postcrosser as well; I can ask if he'd like to join us. I'll U2U. :)

What do you think?

Edited to add - at 1:00.

Let's do it! I have two other people interested through the Postcrossing Canada Facebook group.

My plan is that we bring some favourite received cards, and we sign group cards. I'll make up some to be printed - "Greetings from Postcrossing Calgary". What do you think?

Calgary Postcrossing get together


I am in.

It will be fun to send some cards off as a group. I wonder how other groups have done it in the past... just hold off sending any cards for a week or so before the meet, and then send a bunch at once? all signed from the group??

I'd love to participate and I think my best friend and my sister would be interested as well. We are in Calgary. :)

Great! That's 8 people for Sunday, October 19, at Weeds Cappuccino bar (1903 20 Ave NW Calgary).

In the next couple of days, I hope to have a mock-up for a card to represent Calgary Postcrossing. I'll order some for myself and another member, that we're going to send as our swaps - we just ask that everyone sign them!

It will be posted on Zazzle if you want to order some too, or let me know when I make my order, to save on shipping.


Edited to add - time of meetup is 1:00.

Would love to see your mock-up and will definitely be ordering some.

Thanks for taking this all on...if you need any assistance with anything, please let me know.

The mock-up is here: https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/9oRR6_15h1XlMArw_begbdMTjNZETY...

CDNLib, I don't really have an agenda for this, other than group signings and perhaps bringing in some favourite postcards. If you can think of some other things we could possibly do, that would be great. I've never been to a postcrossing meetup before.

I like the picture, my only suggestion would be to have "Canada" on it as well...but still beautiful and representative of Calgary. How do we order?

I have never been to one either, but am eagerly anticipating this get-together.

Thanks for the feedback!

Here is the card with "Canada" added:
https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/ffPfRIlTGWN-2t5v47kd2tMTjNZETY...

I'm going to post it for sale on Zazzle and order a bunch for myself. To save shipping, you can tell me how many you want to order, and pay me at the meetup, and I'll include it in my order. They should be $1 each.

I only ask that you order through me if you are 100% sure that you will be at the meetup and can pay me back. :)

The card looks great!

I would like to order 50, please (with 'Canada'). I definitely plan on being at the meet up - if for some unforeseen reason I cannot make it, I still want the cards and will arrange to pick them up and pay you.

Thanks so much!

After a couple of discussions, I will have the date printed on the back of the card to mark the occasion of our first meetup.

stormela has a good suggestion - bring blank postcards to swap!
