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