I can confirm that the 29th doesn’t work for me. We have a wedding that day.

Postpone it is.   

Just as an aside, a pub meetup might be fun too.

Happy end of Q3 everyone!

As long as it's not the night of the 27th, got a Halloween party to attend. Free otherwise.

Ed and I are away that weekend, and I work the weekends on either side of it.  We're free the weekend of Nov. 10 if it isn't held before then.

Sounds like people have terrible schedules. Throw up weekends you could meet.
21/28 Oct // 04/11 Nov

Indeed! 

Can someone else take the lead on this one? I have too many obligations house guests, and two big trips to plan.

Open weekend days are:
Oct 20/21,
Oct 27/28,
Nov 17 daytime
Nov 24/25

If meetup happens while we are away, we will catch you on the next one.

Terrible or maybe just full of exciting weekend plans. Also exhausting weekend plans.

In town and free:
Oct 27/28
Nov 3rd maybe
Nov 17/18
Nov 24/25

We could plan one for late Oct, one for late Nov or early Dec as we approach then? No rules saying we can only have one meetup!

28th seems like it could work for Oct for a few people (I'm willing to host if nobody else wants to).


November... people seem all over the place. How do people feel about the weekend of the 24th of Nov?

I keep hoping to make a meetup and have never managed so far.  The 20/21 of October doesn't work, but after that I should be* fine any weekend.

Keep your feelings to yourselves. I need rational plans and thoughts.

I might have bought over 10kg of chicken breasts yesterday, so if people want to stay later for board games and supper, you're welcome.

Give me an idea of how many people would like to join in. I've got simple games and complex/convoluted/holy crap how many rules are in this game/ kinds of games.

I don’t think I’m going to make this one but otherwise carpooling would be the obvious choice.

I do want to plan a board game night in the near future so I can get around to playing Power Grid.

@oneyearfromnow : Car pool option

It's somewhat on the way. (since it's faster to take the 416-417).

Hey all, just remembered that I said tomorrow might work for us and then we had a very busy week here and I completely forgot to checkup on the plans. Unfortunatrly, I won't be able to make it...Ive got a full day of grocery shopping, pumpkin carving, swimming lessons, and solo parenting as Justin is working all weekend. :( hope to make it out to the next one!

SNOW! 
No power at either of our houses! 
Good thing we are hard core Mustachians!  We will not let these setbacks deter us! 
Teri even put on her own snow tires this year! 
Woohoo!
See you in a couple hours if the roads cooperate....

I timed it perfectly, changed my oil and tires to winter ones yesterday, the moment I was done it started raining, this morning: Snow.

Can't beat that.

For those interesting in doing a real-life scavenger hunt type activity, giving yourself 200$ of free stuff for 200$ worth of air miles, it's worth taking a look at my last post in here:
