    Default Ottawa area CPF summer 2010 meet

    The local CPF group hasn't gotten together since before Christmas.

    We usually do Sunday evenings, but a day other than Sunday would be nice so that we'd be able to go somewhere and shine our lights on something besides Tim Horton's ceiling

    With kids being out of school, vacations, etc. I'm not going to set a date and would simply like the local gang to pipe up with some ideas for dates when we could meet.

    A Saturday or Sunday works for me.

    There won't be a meet this weekend (Aug 22nd) - I'm working shiftwork this week (production run simulation) and will not be able attend.

    Given the amount of chaos I've been part of lately, I think early September would be the better option.

    Since there are a couple of folks that would like to come in from Montreal, how does Saturday September 11 sound for a meet?

    We could go to the usual place, as it's right off highway 417, which would be good for the out of town folks.

    Hi I am from the Ottawa area as well and I am new to the forums. I think it would be cool to have a get together with some other flashlight enthusiasts. Saturday the 11th sounds good just let me know where.

    OK, looks like most folks are good for Saturday, September 11.

    Same location as our other meets - Tim Horton's on Innes Road (intersection of Innes and Cyrville - across the street from Costco)
    Time: Around 6:30 PM.

    Location via Google Maps for the folks coming in from out of town.

    If coming in via the 417 from Montreal, get off at exit 112 and take a right onto Innes Road.

    Oh cool, I thought I missed this meet since it is "summer" and I was out of town most of Aug. I am also in.

    I would suggest this trail for playing with lights. It is the next exit due east from Innes, so 5 min by car. Exit onto Walkley and turn east away from city, then park at the sharp turn: map

    Here is the walking path: map

    It should be empty in the evening. I would love to see your lights in action

    If all goes according to plan, I'll be there... I'll make sure everyting goes according to plan.

    +1 on the trail. It can't be a real flashaholic GT without some outdoor space to actually try out our lights.

    Might I suggest everyone should bring rain gear just in case?

    Rain? Is rain even a deterrent?

    That's a great trail that bob_ninja suggested. Perfect for playing. I'm going to need a luggage cart for all of my lights.

    I'll have to bring the Neutral White Rebel 90 and Cree Q3-5C P60 drop-ins I built.

    The trail will be a much better place to test the colour rendition than my backyard.

    Hasn't stopped me so far. Then again I'm paranoid and always ready for it.

    I just bought a 42L backpack... time to try it out! We'll need a few tables to set-up!

    That's unfortunate. At least I should be able to represent Montreal.

    Seems I am going to be busy trying to finish a smaller project before rain on Sun. I may be late showing up at Tim Hortons, but should make it to the 2nd part, trying out lights. I will send my cell# to Brad to let me know when you head out to the trail in case I am late.

    It was good seeing everyone tonight, maybe we can fit another one in before the snow flies.

    I saw some lights I'd like to get: C2 w/Malkoff, TK45, Quark RGB

    Thanks Black Rose for organizing this evening.

    It's always fun to play with lights we've only seen on the net.

    Here's the green laser I had -------> Romisen 30mW
