    This started as a mention in the NHL thread, but just in case I figured it would be worthwhile to post here.

    A few of us were thinking of an SportsJournalists.com meet-up around the Calgary Stampede, which runs July 3-12. Beef, AMac and I are all in the region, and JC seems interested in venturing over from lovely British Columbia. If more folks are interested I'm sure it can grow accordingly.

    I can almost certainly get the time off and be there, at the very least for a couple days. Aside from the necessity of hitting either the rodeo or chuckwagon races, a couple pancake breakfasts and Cowboys (did they end up opening in that new proposed location or not?), there's always some great concerts and hopefully a CFL game.

    Who's in? Since Beef is big on a Monday-Tuesday schedule that would leave July 6 and 7 as a starting point for discussion.

    Are folks from the Centre of the Universe invited?

    Do we have to dress up as cowboys?

    This sounds like a blast.

    Actually JR, ONLY if you dress up as cowboys. It's kind of mandatory. Which reminds me, I need to find my hat with the whistle on it.

    As for dates, I'd say it's guaranteed somewhere between July 3-12. Beef gets Monday-Tuesday off which would mean July 6-7, I can get whatever time off I need around there, AMac is in town and nobody works during Stampede, right? What would the rest of your prefer?
