Nice :)   I too can be mostly fine with whatever, since it turns out there are TONS of the cheap outdoor OHL games, so not planning to go on the 17th after all. Just have to be up for work the next morning so can't stay out too late.

What other games are there? Iíve never heard of the Olympiques or 67s playing outdoors before. I thought the only two games on the outdoor rink were on the 16th and 17th.

None. I misread!

Fair enough.

I’m going in to it with fairly low expectations. The view won’t be great since the stands are so far away from the actual rink but I figure it’s worth it for the novelty of it all.

Just a poke to remind people about this weekend.

Starting early afternoon on the 17th @BiochemicalDJ `s new place! So far, Novik, Oneyearfromnow, me and BiochemDJ. Any other takers or S/O's coming?

Looking forward to it!

I was planning to have the BF along but turns out he's got to be at Ski Patrol training all weekend.  I am much displeased since we haven't had a weekend to ourselves since September. Also because now I'm going to not one, but two social events by myself. (#introvertproblems)

If anyone needs the address, let me know. Both Novik and OYFN already have it (but let me know if you need a reminder) FYI you are both in the Westboro area, if you want to carpool!

Hope you guys are having (or had) a fun meetup. I forgot to check in on the thread to get the date and just missed it. I'll have to try for the next one.

Hey everyone. We'd like to host a meet up in Barrhaven next week. Either Friday the 9th or Saturday the 10th at around 7-8pm.  If there is enough interest. 

Not sure what happened at the other meet ups (because I keep missing them) but I was thinking board games, BYOB or whatever.

Let me know what everyone thinks and what their availability is.

I'm around, available, and interested for both days; carpooling from the Russel/Walkley area if anyone is on the way to Barrhaven and needs a ride!

Anyone going to Barrhaven from near Trenton? no?

Can you take a small detour Biochem?

My wife and I might be interested if there’s room. I’ll run it by her tonight to see how she feels about playing board games with strangers.

If we do come we’ve got some board games we can bring.

Possibly interested depending on day.  We are back from our epic trip this saturday.  @jambongris - would you have room to carshare if it meshes with other plans?

Welcome back from your trip oneyearfromnow :)

Thanks for the signal, BioChem - I'd love to come but am busy Saturday and am likely committed Friday as well. I might be a last minute Friday addition depending on weather (if my partner drives up for his ski patrol shift Friday, I would love to show up, otherwise we're probably early to bed that night).

Sounds fun! Either Friday or Saturday should work for me. I can bring Scattergories and a couple of other games. Spouse might want to join me. If we both come, though, we have to leave in time to be home at 11:00 to give our dog meds. But even aside from that, it's unlikely I'd be up later than that.

Not a problem. It looks like it’s just going to be me though, our babysitter was unavailable.

Did you want to meet at our place around 7?

Awesome! Looking forward to seeing/meeting everyone.  I think we will be 8 in total so far.
