    FYI, the C-Train is closed from Sunnyside to Brentwood or so. However, there is a shuttle bus running every ~10min from Sunnyside that goes to Brentwood.
    A Calgary transit dude told me these things.

    I like Grassi but I think I'll go for something a little more involved like trad climbing instead. Have a great day!

    Because of the group we have. I think Grassi would be a good place for everyone. Next week I was thinking of trying sunshine.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
