Bring your camera and have a BBQ

Thank you to Mike Saramaga for suggesting and hosting this meetup:

"My parents have an acreage just minutes west of the city and they have agreed to let me host a BBQ there. They have a large BBQ area. As well my dad is a bit of a collector (my mom considers him more of a hoarder). He has a collection of antique cars, tractors and old farm equipment. Some are restored, some not. He may also be able to get some of his friends to bring out their antique cars too. 18 acres of space to explore and photograph."

Details of the Event:

- Event is from 1-5pm

- There is limited space so you must be a PAID member to RSVP. Pymt can be done through paypal or at a prior meetup to either Laurice or Kaye.  We won't be accepting payment at the BBQ event.  If you have not yet paid your $10 membership a week before the event, your name WILL BE removed before we email out the address and directions.

- Your shutter-bug organizers will provide hotdogs, marshmallows and water.  If you prefer to have something else, please feel free to bring it.  This is not a potluck event, so do not feel obligated to bring something to share with everyone.

-This is a family friendly event.  Please confirm how many guests you are bringing.

    It was a great time actually getting to just relax and get to know a little bit more about everyone. Thanks for coming out.

    Thanks to everyone who came out. And a big shout out to Laurice and Kaye for helping out and of course bringing out the eats. Hope everyone had a great time, despite the wetness. Gotta say though, it made for some great photos. Can't wait to show them to my parents, I'm sure they'll love them. My dad may be a little upset there's more photos of the manure spreader than all his restored vehicles though. Oh well, that's photographers for you.

    I am sooo bummed... I don't think we're going to be back in time to go. Really regret having to cancel as I was looking forward to it.

    Unfortunatelly I had to Cancel, have few families coming to my place on Saturday!

  • Ivan L.

    Was so looking forward to this get together, but I need to cancel due to vehicle issues!

  • Mike S.

    Looks like the weather is going to cooperate this time round. Looking forward to getting to seeing some new and some familiar faces. It will be nice to spend some time getting to know a bit more about everyone. I do recommend if you like to take pictures of rust, do wear appropriate footwear. The area is a bit overgrown and the neighbors horses do leave behind surprises on the pathways that are a bit clearer. I took a walk through my dad's "collection" the other day and found a couple cars I had no idea were there. And hopefully we will be finished with his latest project vehicle. If you do have any troubles locating the place I do, feel free to message me. See you Saturday.

    I have just sent out the address and directions to all attendees. Since it is a private residence, I won't be posting this information online, so send me an email at [masked] if you need it sent out to you again.

    September 3, 2013

  • Emilia

    Is this happening this weekend? Not sure as date still indicates tentative and directions have been mailed out.

  • Allan S.

    Is this still happening? Have not heard anything except the initial email a few days ago saying it might rain. Do we have a plan if it rains or will it just be cancelled? Just wanting to know so I can plan my weekend. I really hope mother nature pulls through for us as I would love to meet you all.

    June 13, 2013

    • Allan S.

      Well that's sad but expected I guess. Do you know when it will be rescheduled? Hoping I can make it whenever it is re-booked for. Hoping not next week as I am on call and would not likely be able to come but whatever works for the rest of the group. Thanks Kaye.

      June 13, 2013

    • Kaye

      We are not sure yet what day we can reschedule it, however, since everyone is so busy in the summer we will aim for Sept. I think our fall weather is quite nice and more reliable than our spring weather.

      1 · June 13, 2013

  • Kaye

    Sorry everyone, but we will have to reschedule this meetup as the forecast for June 15 is not looking good: cold, wind and rain. Not good for BBQ or photography. We hope to try this again in September, but we are not sure about the date yet. I just put down tentatively Sept 7 for now. We will confirm the date as soon as we can. Thanks for your understanding.

    1 · June 13, 2013

    So sorry, I really wanted to come but something's come up at short notice that has to be a priority.

    I have not got the directions yet. :(

    1 · June 11, 2013

  • Bev H.

    I just did a search for the address sent out and it doesn't make sense based on the comments above. Not sure it's right. Or was that link that said "directions" not the information we need.

    June 11, 2013

  • Heather

    Sorry, I won't be in town now this weekend

    June 11, 2013

  • Kaye

    Sorry for the delay in sending out the addess today. The forecast is not looking very good right now for Saturday ( 95% chance of 10-15mm of rain). But Alberta weather changes by the hour so let's see if it changes for the better in a few days.

    1 · June 10, 2013

  • Deb D.

    I thought I saw something about the address being mailed out? I am off camping for 4 days so if you don't get a reply just know I am there for sure if I get directions and big Eddie does not drown me in the boat ( that is big eddie in big trout)
