Hello, I’m being sent out on behalf of DiS to this insane looking festival:

Anyone got any intel on Calgary? Feel it’s a slightly niche one but let’s see x

sledis land?


#3

Sled island…


#4

That is, if my flight confirmation ever comes through

Some mates of mine live in Calgary. It is fuck boring imo.

Also, plus 40c in the summertime and minus 40c in the winter time - friendly.

Go visit the Winter Olympics park if you really like Cool Runnings…

Our Father, who art in Calgary
Bobsled be thy name
Thy kingdom come, gold medals won
on Earth as it is in Turn Seven
With Liberty and Justice for Jamaica and Haile Selassie
Amen

Had a look and it looks like warmest will be 26c but it is still only June I guess

Acceptable zoo if you like that kind of thing (you shouldn’t).

Quite close to the rockies though.
