Following the lead of our London/ UK counterparts ( http://librivox.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=4900&highlight= ), is there any interest in a Central Ontario chapter or get together. I know a couple of our active volunteers are from north of Toronto.

A possible meeting place could be at Toronto Podcamp on Feb 24/25
http://podcamp.pbwiki.com/ .

I am planning on posting and podcasting more about podcamp in the very near future.


I would also be happy to host something up on the shores of Georgian Bay.

Calling all Ontarians.

Sean has said he is willing to host the worldwide gathering in Midland. Please respond as to your intentions about attending. Lets get as many people as possible for a fun time on the shores of Georgian Bay.

Esther. :D

Possibly... I don't think there's any birthdays around that weekend to block up my time... I'd have to see closer to the date. Right now I'm just concentrating on graduating this year. I'm only looking at my next project deadline... anything past that and my brain goes all mushy.

Hello Ontario Residents!

Esther and I still talk from time to time about having a meetup for Ontario Librivoxians. I am once again involved in Organizing Podcamp Toronto ( http://podcamptoronto.org or http://podcamptoronto.wordpress.com ) on February 23 and 24 at Ryerson University in Toronto. If enough Librivoxians are in attendance, we could perhaps organize a session for recording, or discussing issues around recording audio for the public domain.

Alternatively, both Esther and I would be willing to host Ontario Chapter meetings at our homes north of Toronto.


Any takers?

Hello Esther, David, Tricia, and all Ontario area Voxateers:

Should we try to have another Ontario get together before the snow flies and Esther flies west? Where and when? I'm willing to offer our newly wreckovated living room in Midland as a venue.

I enjoyed our LV 5th Anniversary mini-meet, another would be cool.

The only weekend I am tied up is the Hallowe'en weekend.

Great idea Sean. Course David's place is more central ;)

You and I could drive together. (With your family of course if they come)

I'm fine with David's. Just making the offer for our place. We travel easily.

Oh, won't Jennifer be pleased, a house full of crazy LibraVoxateers :shock: (well, a few anyway)

That sounds fine with me.

The only Saturdays I'm FREE in the next few weeks are Nov 6 and 20, and the 6th might be iffy.

And David's place would be much easier for me.

Would we be recording something?? 8-)
