Montreal: There's Con*Cept again in october.

Our local group won't be officially involved in it this year, but I suspect a few people will still spend some time there.

When we asked about being in the London Santa Clause parade for next year, the organizers asked if we were interested in doing the parade this year as well, and are covering our costs.

If anyone is interested, the parade is November 24th @ 6pm. Will anyone be joining us in London for this? Sorry for the short notice, but I only found out a week ago, as I was on vacation when everything happened.
