Sounds reaaaally awesome, I'd go if I were in Alberta at that time. There's a chance I'll be there roundabouts next summer, so maybe I'll join then!

So you guys better do this again next year :P

Bumping this thread hoping someone who may want to attend can see it.

Also, did anyone sort out their accommodations yet?

So to put things straight, its will be:
Us
meeting up in Calgary
Me and this Guy checking you into a hotel if you need one
Possibly meeting you as you come into Calgary and showing you how to get to a C-TRAIN or a different hotel if needed
Then come the actual day us all meeting up at a location at...... lets say.... ...
Hay where's a good place to meet up and get everyone together? I'd think the cTrain platform at Chinook, heratage, and a few of the others will be packed around that time... where should we meet... hold on I'm pming you...

Sounds like its almost sorted.
If I had any idea where anything was, then I would try and be more help, but I can't :(
Does anyone think it would be worth checking into a hotel if I'm coming from Banff?

If anybody in Alberta wants to carpool, I've got room for 2!

You stated that you're only staying one day? Any hance that you might stay a second day?

I would like to go (providing you still have room in your carpool) but staying only one day wouldn't be my first choice?

I'll have to arrange for seperate transport if otherwise indicated.

Yeah, looks like you'd be stuck hopping on a bus on your way back, unfortunately..
I absolutely have to go back on day 1 because I've maxed out my vacation time at work and I can't get another day off. :(

Sorry mang! :C

I doubt I'll be able to come now that I'm back at my old job in my old town. But if any of you folks will be passing through east on the Hwy 1 after, give me a shout and you can come visit me, I'll even buy the first round.

I might have to show up, I'm moving back to Calgary on the first anyways, and I'll probably wind up at the Stampede anyways... could be fun. Besides, it's a reason to get liquored up before it gets dark

Sorry I have been so quiet guy. I have just finished moving to new house this week and I got my internet back today- I'm gonna get a list of possible attendees together later today.

Also can you guys give me an update if you are not coming?

No one really wants to go with me, so I'm probably not going either.

Also, isn't this year's Stampede some kind of special anniversary or something?

I think it's the Stampede's 100th anniversary.

I think a good meeting place would be at the Calgary Olympic Plaza. I don't really know at what time we should meet but I think early afternoon would be appropriate.

Whaa? This is gonna take place in Calgary? My hometown? WHY??? WHY DID I EVER MOVE TO ANOTHER COUNTRY?!
So, I clearly cannot come... I say 'Enjoy!' to all who will attend, and tell me of anything interesting at the Stampede!

If anyone can give me an ideas/ help/ info on travel, costs, etc, that would be fantastic :)

Much love:)
Well Calgary is about a 2 hour drive from Banff. If you can't get a ride from there, you can always hop on a Greyhound Bus which would probably cost you around $60 or so. As for hotels, Tox put up a pretty detailed post on the second page.

I hope to see you there. :D

It only takes me 30 mins from Calgary to Banff, including a stop at an A&W along the way. I guess the reason is crazy driving skills!
