PNWDS 2017 Vancouver: I accidentally registered twice! Wanna buy my second ticket?

Hello, fellow PNW Drupaliers!

In a panic over tickets selling out, and not being able to locate any email confirmation of my having already registered, I inadvertently bought a second $55 ticket to this year's event.

I subsequently noticed the "tickets" tab in my account profile, informing me that I had registered way back in early December.

So, I have an extra ticket -- I believe there is some way that I can pass mine on to someone, so if anyone is interested in buying my second ticket, I'd love to hear from you!

Thanks!

~ Richard

Drupal in Canada BoF at DrupalCon NOLA

I created a BoF at DrupalCon https://events.drupal.org/neworleans2016/bofs/drupal-canada

I am hoping to try and bring together more folks from Canada and rally the troops for getting more people involved in the DrupalNorth initiative.

With an inaugural success last year in Toronto we are continuing to build momentum with this years DrupalNorth in Montreal (http://www.drupalnorth.org/). I want to build it to be even bigger for when we celebrate it's 3rd anniversary in conjunction with Canada's 150th Anniversary, as we host DrupalNorth 2017 in Ottawa.
