Pemmi-Con Filer Meetups on Saturday and Sunday

By Cath Jackel: I’m at the con and have had a chance to look around. Programming starts at 10 am. There will be Filer meetups on Saturday and Sunday morning at NINE a.m. Location will be the Japanese garden/plaza south of the Delta hotel. Go out the front door of the hotel, turn left, and walk half a block. There isn’t seating, but the Carlton Street side has raised concrete planters we can perch on.

BYO drinks and snacks. The Delta has a main floor coffee shop that opens at 7 a.m. both mornings. On Saturday, the Bagelsmith, on 185 Carlton on the way to the plaza, opens at 9 a.m. Their breakfast sandwich is pretty good.

I have red hair and will be wearing a bright blue batik shirt. Looking forward to meeting you!

Filer Meetup at Pemmi-Con?

Hi all, long-time lurker Cath Jackel here. I’m a fan living in Western Canada who will be attending Pemmi-Con in Winnipeg next weekend. Are there any other Filers planning to attend? Would you be interested in meeting up? 

It would be for an hour or so, outdoors if possible, and not conflicting with any major programming items. If yes, please let me know in comments below by the end of Tuesday July 18. If we go forward, I’ll sort out details and post them later this week.
