TR2NNOCON
« on: 18 Aug 2009, 06:58 »

There was some discussion of this in the last Con thread, but is anyone serious about it? I think we should make it happen, considering I missed the last Toronto meet up and I think Anna said she did too. A mini-con would be some fun for sure. There was talk of doing it in Montreal too, but most of us are in the GTA...so having it here would make the most sense.

Who's in, and what time frame works for you guys?

yeah i did miss the original tronnocon. i will probably come to this one since i actually live in tronno, not the gta. (and am therefore incredibly flexible when it comes to time frames because i'm in the city anyway and not incredibly busy)
i can't promise that i will be "fun to hang out with" though.

Put up your hand if you live in Toronto and got a PM from Michael last week. That's what I thought.

That sounds like an alright plan, but what about Joseph, I think he was planning to come out to this if it were to happen?

Also walk into a bus stop, walk into a railing, get burnt by a cigarette, piss in an alley, and then be carried up two flights of stairs. All in the span of an hour, one person must do this.

What if I carried him like one normally carries a lady? Like, upper body in one arm and legs in the other? He doesn't remember, so I can say I did that and it could be true because he doesn't remember.

Tyler, I carried you up the stairs like a lady.

  Sorry, I'm in France without a reliable internet connection at the moment (I'm resorting to a McDonalds to surf a bit now).  Tomorrow I'm off to Vancouver, and then back to Montreal on the 24th.  So long as we plan this for a weekend, I should be able to grab a bus or train to Toronto without any problems.  Toronto is probably the best place for this; I only put forward Montreal in case anyone from the Maritimes might be able to make it, but that doesn't seem likely.

  So, as far as timing, what works for you folks?  I can't do Thanksgiving weekend in October (family obligations), but beyond that, I don't have anything major booked (though I can't predict exam schedules and things).

since everybody seems to be free to do this almost anytime, maybe what we should do is wait until the folks who are in school start classes so that they can get back to everybody else about their exam schedule and assignment deadlines and so on, and then from there we can pick a date that works best for us. like mentioned earlier i live very close to toronto and am there all the time regardless so the date/time is really not going to stop me from being there whatsoever.

I think Tania's right that we should wait until classes have started to plan dates.  It wouldn't be good to decide upon something only to have half the people back out do to midterms and things.

My, my.  I live kind of close to Toronto, and I would like to meet the internet!  I don't have my passport right now, though, and I live in the USA.  I've got everything I need, I just need to get down to the post office and get it done.  Too bad I'm lazy.  After my big test, I'll probably drop everything off, but I don't know if I'll get it in time to meet up with you crazy people.

so this probably could have gone in the music subforum except i didn't really want to start a new thread and i figure most of the people who check this thread are going to be people in and around toronto anyway, so it's going here instead - but i thought you'd all like to know that the toronto international film festival runs from september 10 to september 19 and, as part of a whole series of free events being presented at yonge and dundas square, deerhoof are playing a free show on september 17.

i am of course going to be here and i've love to hang out with anyone else who will be in attendance but if deerhoof isn't your thing, check out the other free events that will be running during the week. the film festival only happens once a year and it's amazing fun.

Not interested.  You should come to Montreal.

as much as i'd love to hang out in march, if you're talking about choosing which city to go to university to then my vote goes to montreal too. toronto is exciting to explore with friends once in a while but ultimately a pretty hectic and congested place to live, and the university's not much better.
