Where are all the Alberta owners ?

Since moving to Calgary area end of October I have seen more Yaris here than in Toronto region. Yet there seems to be very little posts here from Alberta owners. Are we really that few ? Has there ever been a Yaris meet in Calgary ?

I really enjoyed meeting up with the GTA folks..the few times I could.
So what say you fellow western owner's...up for a meet when the weather is better ?

You'd best print up some Yaris flyers/cards and start leaving them under the wipers of your new neighbours to make them aware.

Sadly right no she's a dirty mess and the weather to crappy to get a nice shot. But as soon as the opportunity arises I got a brand new Cannon to try out.

I'm in Edmonton and I'll be taking delivery of my 3dr hatch by the end of the month. I'll have to check out your car sometime ae92trueno7, I've been thinking of getting the blitz s/c in the summer sometime. Can't believe I've never seen your car around the city at all, looks great.

hey man! that's me and i'm still around. i was thinking about getting that SC too, but now that there's that new HS250h coming we might get that instead (depending on price - and yes i'm aware it'll be more than a supercharger no matter what!)

When I was out in Alberta I didn't notice too many sub-compacts... I think 80% of the population there drives a truck or an SUV.

I have to agree, I have seen some ridiculously sized trucks here. Hell I was at a bar in down town Calgary and i swore a monster truck rolled by...you know its big when you can hear the hum of the tires before you see the damn thing !
