Calgary barbecue cancelled

The barbecue I discussed here has been cancelled, because the Saturday Calgary weather looks crappy. Says 2008 World Fantasy Convention chair Randy McCharles:

Winter has come early.
Well, at least fall has.

Mother Nature has chosen our BBQ weekend to have unseasonably cold weather. I've been watching the forecast all week and it has been getting worse each day. Sat. now looks at best to be cloudy and just above freezing, possibly with melting snow from Friday night. It is just as possible it will be raining or snowing Sat.

This will reduce attendance (and fundraising) and make the event less fun for those who do come out, so I've decide to postpone it. Possibly we'll have an indoor event in late November or early December.

A few of us will be at the park from 11:30 - 1:00 to let anyone who doesn't get the notice and shows up know what happened.
Ah, well.
On the bright side the weather gets back to normal by Tuesday.

It seems they got snow in Grand Prairie, Hinton and Banff. We got rain here all weekend too. Not very good BBQ weather I'm affraid.
