    Shawn - going paddling shortly, may be a little late - will check blog on return to see what the group decides and try to link up.

    I was thinking Ahern St, near the end of the route. There tends to be less crowd and the trees offer some shade. I'm not sure if I'll have my kids or not yet. If anyone wants to Meetup there, my cell is 8029714. Or if anyone wants to meet elsewhere on the route, post where you are.

      depending on the weather i may be in my steampunk outfit. hal-con's facebook page has a link to the event details for where the form-up is.

    I might be working the parade again this year but I'll be there either way :)

    Sorry, I'm working that day.

    So it seems we couldn't get together a sizable enough group to participate this year (we often miss 2/3 of the people who RSVP, which in this case would be 4). I would like to make it a goal over the next year to grow the group. And I think a good measure would be whether or not we have enough people to enter next year.

    Anyway, I'll still be going to watch. Probably, my wife and kids will be there too. Please adjust your RSVPs to indicate if you still want to meet up to watch it together.

    here's a link to the prices, and also click the terms and conditions to see some other guidelines.

    note also we have only about 3 weeks to get our registry in (with payment) and it's first come first serve.

    I think we could always do a banner. I know some people do that. I don't think we need to do anything extravagant, like a float, or whatnot.

    So this started as a discussion board topic. I'm not sure whether we'd meet up to watch or to join in the parade. The timing is a bit awkward, in that CFI Halifax will be reopening probably late summer, but hasn't yet. In order to march in the parade, we'd need:
    - a good number of people to confirm
    - some cash to register ($120, I think). If we could get a dozen people willing to contribute $10 each or something, that would work. But it wouldn't be mandatory.
    - people, materials and/or cash to put together whatever we need in terms of an entry (a float? costumes? what do others do?) I've never really noted what's involved before, other than noting the really spectacular floats.

    Put your comments below. I've never planned anything like this before. If anyone has ideas about what to do or costs involved, let me know below or email me if you prefer.
