ATTENTION: CALGARY AREA REAL ESTATE INVESTORS
Some members were discussing a possible meet up in Calgary between October 21st and 28th -- the days I happen to be back up in Calgary from (sunny) California. :)
This would be an informal, general interest, meet up to network, brainstorm and learn from each other. Everyone is welcome -- from newbies to seasoned investors.
I'd be happy to chat a little bit about various U.S. markets, and opportunities available south of the border.
If you like the idea, then we need to pick a date, time and location. I suggest either Saturday, October 24 -or- Sunday, October 25.
MODERATOR: Its OK to assess interest in this forum, but any actual meeting notices must be posted only in the Real Estate Events and Happenings forum.
Hi @Marco Santarelli ,
Saturday October the 24th would work great for me. Especially if we could make it a bit earlier in the afternoon around 3-4pm as opposed to later on in the evening.
@Jett Rao -- That's great! I will join.
Feel free to pass the meet-up invitation on to your group.
A focus and knowledge on investing in the US would be most welcomed!
If I'm not working definitely will try and make it just, currently working on my first project in southside chicago!
110 % I'm in, just name the place and time. Looking forward to asking a bunch of questions also getting to meet new people.
@Cal Ewing Thanks for the tag! I am in as well just name the place and time. Both the original dates work well for me.
I'm not too sure how to do that @Ram Srinivasan
Yes this sounds like a great idea. A US focus would be nice. Some of us are already meeting and chatting about other areas of RE Investing so this would nice to have some of the people who are currently investing in those markets to come and chat with everyone. Love the possibilities this website is able to provide to its users in terms of meeting and sharing ideas/ concepts. Count me in.
This sounds great, I just started investing in the US (and a few challenges have already popped up), so would love to meet and hear from you @Marco Santarelli and @Cal Ewing and others who are already active in that market. Unfortunately 24/25th are booked for me, unless I start now working on how to get myself out of it. 23rd works better for me, then the week's craziness is done and I take my mind off that. But whatever date the majority settles on, I'll go with it and see how I can make it.
Hey guys -- the interest level has been great so far!
DATE: Suggestions? (I'm open both days.)
LOCATION: Where did you guys meet for your last meet-up?

@Alexander Pezzutto - mentioning you as promised. Hope you can make it if we get a time and place coordinated.
@Marco Santarelli I may be able to miss a part of the Conference that weekend and come up.
Sunday works best for us, so long as it is after 2pm.
Saturday could also work if it was in the morning or evening, but not the afternoon.
As for location... preferably something in the South end but I do not know Calgary well enough to name anything besides Tim Horton's.
Last time we met up at Gravity espresso and wine bar.
Thanks for the tip. Following topic now!
There are lots of options to meet, I think it all comes down to how many people are planning on showing up. if we have 20 people coming then we may want to find a better place than Timmys or Starbucks but that's just my impressions. Saturday evening works best for me. Any time after 6.
Please count me in as well! I'm available anytime on both days.
I know it will be hard to accommodate everyone's schedule with a group like this. But I'm open to meeting on either day and at any time. I'm watching to see what the rest of the group suggests.
Would be great to get some more Calgary investors in on this thread. I'll see if I can mention others.
Count me in!
