Free Election Day Transit in Regina/Saskatoon

How did it come about? Twitter played a role. Regina Transit initially wasn’t going to offer free transit on election day, despite doing so for a previous municipal election.

#YQRTweetupX was fun yet again

It was last night at the Artful Dodger on 11th Ave.


Two years ago I ran into Elan at the Cathedral Village Arts Festival and suggested we should hold a mini-tweetup party. To distinguish it from the main event running about every 3 months, we’d add an “X” on the end of the hashtag. Last year there was a Summer tweetup at Flip (which I missed due to recovering from dying), and so the 2nd almost annual YQR (Regina) Tweetup-X was held this year at Artful Dodger.

Meet A Few #YQR Tweeters At #YQRtweetupX

June 13, 2013. RSVP, as space is limited.
Hope to see you at the Freehouse that night.

Co-hosted by Schmutzie, AKA Elan Morgan, and Saskboy (John Klein).

Watch for other fun Tweetup events under the Twitter hashtag #YQRtweetup (without the X on the end). Elan and I are organizing a small Tweetup to fill in the gap between the fantastic, big parties that #YQRTweetup tend to turn into, because we need to spend more time with our Regina (& area) tweeps. Here’s hoping the terrific organizers of previous Tweetups treat us to a tremendous time this Summer too.
