I'd guess that a typical Winnipegger would be within at most 25-30 minutes drive (non-rush hour) of 90% of the other people in the city. So if you said, let's go skating, it would indeed be feasible for many of the people on this board to show up 45 minutes later, wherever you were in the city. I'm in Toronto, where such invitations wouldn't make much sense, and I certainly miss this aspect of life in Winnipeg.
Makes sense. I was wondering why so many people were able to show up at that one location the night the report was in the Globe and Mail that a deal had been done to bring the Thrashers to Winnipeg.
