    Claire and I will be in Calgary for a couple of days in about a months time.

    Anyone know if there are there any good music shops in Calgary which aren't too hard to find ?

    I suggest that you stay away from Guitar Works and Music Center Canada. Guitar Works has a very limited selection. Music Center Canada selection is similar to Long and McQuades, but with higher prices. If you could go to only one place I would say to go to Long and McQuade. Tell Frank that Drew says hi! :)

    Thanks so much for that list - I've got a couple of weeks to plan routes and stuff like that. Hope to get to a couple of them anyway.

    And hopefully we'll make a hockey match aswell !

    Get the onion rings! Even if you don't like onions they are the greatest.
