As we’ve mentioned before, in organizing Ignite events it’s been important to us that the venues be easily accessible by public transit. That was easy when events took place in downtown Kitchener, but with Ignite Waterloo 6 taking place outside of Cambridge at Whistle Bear Golf Club, it posed a transit issue.
We’re happy to announce that with the support of our excellent sponsors, we’ve been able to arrange for our own transit to the event, and will have a shuttle making stops in Waterloo and Kitchener.
On June 15th we’ll have our own GRT shuttle bus running out to Whistle Bear and back at the end of the evening. The bus will display “Charter” and have Ignite signs. Please note that the shuttle will not be making any individually requested stops.
The pick up/drop off schedule will work as follows:
Going to the Event
5:45pm (approximately): Shuttle arrives at at the Clock Tower entrance to Victoria Park at Joseph and Gaukel Streets in Kitchener (facing south).
6:00pm: Shuttle departs from the Joseph Street stop to head to Whistle Bear.
6:30pm (approximately): Shuttle arrives at Whistle Bear.
Coming Home from the Event
10:30pm: Bus will be ready to depart. (Bus will wait if event runs long, and depart asap afterward once riders have boarded.)
11:00pm (approximately): Stop at the Clock Tower entrance to Victoria Park on Joseph St. in Kitchener.
11:15pm (approximately): Stop at University of Waterloo at the Davis Centre Library.
UPDATE: Due to a conflict with DemoCampGuelph (another excellent local tech event that we recommend attending), we’ve moved Ignite 6 to the following week.
We’ve finalized the two most important details for Ignite Waterloo 6: the date and venue!
The event will be held on June 15th at Whistle Bear Golf Club just outside of Cambridge. We’re thrilled about this location for a few reasons.
- It will easily accommodate 300-400 people.
- It’s a lovely location and event space.
- For the first time we’ll be sharing the fun of Ignite in a new Waterloo Region location.
- The folks at Whistle Bear are excited to have us there and are working hard to help us make it a great event.
If you’re not car-enabled and it’s a concern that the location doesn’t fulfill our desire for access via public transit, fear not! We’ll have free shuttle buses available for the evening, and we’ll soon announce details on how Ignite devotees can be delivered to Whistle Bear in comfort and style for the event.
We’re continuing to receive fantastic speaker applications – our speakers committee is going to have a hard time with the selection process! However, there’s still time to apply, so if you have a passion or an idea, head over to our Be a Speaker page for all the info.
We’re also finalizing details for our second speakers’ workshop in May, and will publicize that information shortly.
More details to come, including ticket information, so stay tuned, and start spreading the word!
