Just a quick note, since we will have both English an French speaking traders, please provide the games description for your offers in both language if you can.

If this is a problem, just add a note to the geek list item you need help with and I can help translate the description.

Sorry about the delay I was off for the week end.
You're right, there seems not to be very much interest in the math trade so far. I'll get in touch again with a bunch of guys this week.

I'm part of the local game groups and they are aware of the Math trade but probably didn't realize that the dead line was so close.

Thanks for caring.

Julien,

What do you think about emailing Ottawa/Kanata/Gatineau/Gloucester/Barrhaven geeks? There are a lot as Okay suggests. And maybe some of those folks actually look at their geekmail.

I volunteer to do the envelope stuffing. What do you think?

I got the geekmail, but I think I already have the most items added in this math trade.

I really hope more users show up soon, as I'm not seeing much to add to my wantlist (yet).

I find it weird as well to have so few responses. I had a better turnout when we did the one for CanGames, this spring.

Hell, we had almost 300 items in the first Ottawa area math trade I ran (and 200 items in the 2nd one).

Maybe people think they can't trade if they're not going to the game thing?

You have to go Math Trade Gateway, but for now the list is not up to date. Julien have to connect him to the site to activate the last entries and the enable the want list submission system.

I hope my English is ok.

Pour Matin et les autres francophone! Nous avons besoin de se connecter au Math Trade Gateway. Mais pour ceux qui y vont déjà la liste des entrées n'est pas complète encore. Julien doit s'y connecter pour activer la fin des entrées et le début de la période des soumissions des "want lists"

So, how is exactly is this going work? Is there a time and location at Ludo set for everyone to meet? Or is it going to be up to everyone to track down their games throughout the day? What's the plan?

I think it's better if everyone tries first to arrange for their own trades.

We can arrange to meet all together at some point but in the past it was always hard to find a time where everybody available.
I planning to be there mostly on the evenings. If I'm not there, I can have somebody else take care of the meeting.

Another solution that I can explore is to secure a spot in the library for people to drop off and pick up their loot.

What do you guys prefer.

Just to let everyone that I'm trading with know, I'm not planning on attending the gaming event. I will be there for a short time (most likely on Saturday) so hopefully I can meet up with everyone then and get my trades out of the way.

Thanks for running the trade.

same here. I won't be there all day and will only be swinging by for the trade.

What time is this going down?

I'm going to step forward and say I'll be there around 10am.

Anyone trading with me should aim to be there around the same time?

I'm open to an alternate time. Just throwing out 10am as a start.

I also don't know the venue so as for a specific location, I'm all ears.

I'm in the same boat as Adam. I could make it for 10 a.m. and/or could possibly drop by sometime after 5 p.m.

The simplest place to meet is the front lobby, especially since you don't need to go past the registration desk to access it for those who are not attending the convention.

I won't be there on Saturday morning by you guys can still meet at that time.
