Victoria BC Meet Up - 4pm Thursday 24 May 2018 @ Spinnakers
« on: March 03, 2018, 10:42:26 AM »


Let it not be said that I don't plan stuff well in advance. Next Victoria BC Meet Up will be at 4pm Thursday 24 May 2018 @ Spinnakers Brew Pub. If you can't be there at 4pm exactly no worries. Just let us know you are coming later and there will be folks who can sacrifice and drink/eat more to hang out with you when you show up.

Warning: wings are no longer half-price during happy hour, but they do have some boneless chicken bites on special that are pretty tasty. Just want to prevent disappointment if you were planning on crushing a couple plates of cheap wings.

Probably not, but you can always find another excuse to bail on us! ;)

Gah - can't make this one either.  We'll be out there full time starting in September so I'll be lurking in this meetup thread. 

And has anyone started a 'BC real estate speculation tax' discussion thread yet?

Hi everyone! I'm new to MMM but I put it in my calendar.
By then I hope to have made some significant progress!

Awesome. Mostly we just drink beer and eat wings so come no matter where things are at with your MMM journey. :)

Thanks Stasher - we bought in Vic West last September but haven't moved out yet.  RunningBoy is out there for a weekend every three weeks for work but we both still have Alberta residency, so the new 'speculation tax' is a concern.  I'm giving notice at work at the end of this month, and am planning to move in September '18.

We'll be out in Victoria from May 18-25 but won't be available for the get together on the 31st.  But if the group is willing to reschedule, I'll spring for a few orders of wings.....!

I'm open to changing the date to 24 May 2018...still a Thurs. Anyone who is committed to coming object?

Welcome to Victoria. Spec tax or not you want to get the hell out of AB and start island life. Man it was the best move I ever made! :)

I can make it on May 24.
There are good reasons why people who work in Alberta then choose to move to the island when they finish working.

Anyone object to the date change? If not I'll make it official next Friday.

The date's so far out that every Thursday still works for me. I'm fine to change it.

Same for me. There's a small possibility of a work trip, but that could happen any week.

I'm free every Thursday night except I'm in Manitoba for the May 24th (am late to posting this, so I can catch the next one!)
