I would definitely be interested in a poly community. Currently the meet up groups seem more like swinger groups.

Exactly.

I started the process of registering on Meetup but stalled when I discovered it was going to cost me money. I've been looking at other Meetup type software to start my own Meetup type website, but it looks like a lot of work.

Do you think that if I started a group on Meetup that it wouldn't bother members if I were to ask for a small donation to cover the cost of operating?

The other thing that stalled me was the thought that there are so few people in the area who seem interested that it would be a waste of effort, and even if a few were attracted to it, I've had so much debate here over my ideas on what being truly poly means, that I'm not sure how to handle that. I have very specific ideas about what "truly poly" is, and don't want to compromise that.

Any ideas? Thoughts?

There's still an active Polyamory Calgary group on FB. It's a secret group for privacy with a public facing page at https://www.facebook.com/Poly-Calgary-460999460585444/ for contact information.

Again, for privacy they look for people to attend an event before getting access to the FB group, but events are I believe at least monthly, or you can make other arrangements through contacting admins at polycalgary@gmail.com

It's been a while since attending, but the group was in a good state the last time I met with them.

Thanks for that. I've sent an email so we'll see what they have to say ( if anything ).
