While I live in, comparatively, nearby Vermont I would be interested in getting together with Montreal Arduinos ...
On the 27th of October there is an indoor hamfest (ham radio/electronics fleamarket) in Longueuil. I plan to be there to sell the stuff I handle in my webstore http://www.wulfden.org/Arduino/freeduino.shtml
. If there were enough interest in getting together I would consider renting a second ten foot table space so we could have room to play. I plan to have a full range of the things I sell including my new line of Arduino related kits and material. I will have chips with bootloaders, BBBs, breadboards, LCD displays and serial backpacks, etc. I plan to bring my burner rig so you can bring your own chips to burn bootloaders if you want.
It will cost $5 to get in, that is beyond my control. On the other hand there will also be a lot of bargains (and junk) to be had. the details are:

Just a quick reminder ... the hamfest ... at Longueuil is this coming Saturday. It's open fom 0900 to 1300, I will be here at least an hour early to set my stuff up. I will have my range of Arduino compatib;le kits based upon Paul Badger's BBB abd RBBA, serial programming adapters, FTDI USB-TTL serial cables, breadboards, power supplies, LCD displays, and serial LCD boards, and a lot of other stuff. I also will have my Mac laptop and my bootloader burner and a stash of ATmega168-20PU chips. I offer the use of the setup to burn bootloaders on your own chips and will sell you a chip, if you need one, at a very modest markup.
I will also have with me for handling and play, two LilyPad Arduinos and one of Lady Ada's Breaduino boards, as well as an not too old NG board and a Diecemila with one of Lady Ada's new shield boards.
Cheers ... BBR
