Victoria BC Meet Up - 1 Dec 2017 @ 4PM
« on: September 17, 2017, 07:49:21 AM »


Meet Up at Spinnaker's at 4PM for Happy Hour Friday 1 Dec 2017. Date is just to get ball rolling if folks want to suggest a different date in Dec just comment, but I figured one last 2017 Victoria Meet Up would be nice. :)

Oooh! I want to rsvp and meet the Vancouver Island crew. I'll be visiting a friend in Victoria that weekend, and that time/date should work really well with my plans.
Ask me about my puppy pics!

So far the Van Isle crew at this meet up is just me, but if you RSVP you'll get the ball rolling and who knows what might happen? :)

I'd love to get back to Spinnaker's (and it's wonderful combination of wings and beer) and see the Victoria MMM crew again...and FIFoFum, it would be a real drag to miss you...but I'll be in Pacifico-land on that date.

Just as a clarification to date nobody other than myself has expressed any interest in a Meet Up on this date so unless other folks join in I'll just cancel he event.

I miss you guys, and I miss VI, and I will be missing that meetup.  A lot of missing going on.  ;-(

My husband will be out there on one of his tri-weekly trips that weekend and the meetup is close to our place.  I'm sure he'll be interested!

(Edited to add:  Shoot!  He works until 6pm so probably wouldn't get there until 6:45pm or so).

Given the interest in the event to this point I do not expect it to happen.

This is the huge Christmas night I planned for the business community and need to be for the event.
I would be there in a heartbeat but this will not work.
Sorry I can not attend, I am up for alternative dates in there is a different consensus on timing.

Saturday or Sunday would work for me if that works at all the rest that have shown interest ?

I'm in! I'm also happy to meet any other time that weekend.

The following weekend, ski season starts and I'll start clown commuting to mt Washington every other weekend (or more, depending on my willpower). If anyone's interested in carpooling sometime, let me know.

Friday still works for me at any time. I'm staying in downtown area. I'd be available earlier in then day on Saturday or Sunday morning, if that worked for other people. Sat eve/night is no good (that's the celebration I'm in town for), and I'll be heading back home sometime Sun afternoon.
Ask me about my puppy pics!

The date/time has been set for 2 months+ so I made plans based on it and can't meet on Sat/Sun, but I don't mind if you folks want to move the event to the weekend if that works better for you. I'm happy that a meet up will be going on in Victoria. I don't have to be there. I've been to lots of them.

I'll opt out then, have fun.
Just can't skip our event up here as a board member and business owner. (event date didn't get picked until October)

It would have been possible for me to change my Dec schedule in Oct, but it's a lot harder 5 days out from the event.

Wish I could be there!  Never been to Victoria but it's on the bucket list.  I've got a brother and old high school buddy who live there, so one day I will make the trip. 

Hope you all have a blast!

The rain is lightening up so it should be a nice ride to the pub! See you at 4pm.

Thanks to all the fine folks who came out for the meet up yesterday. We set a record for most number of Victorian MMMers at a meet up ever with 3!!!

Attendees:

- FIFoFum
- TrMama
- Sunny
- RC

I've posted a new thread for a March 2018 Meet Up: https://forum.mrmoneymustache.com/meetups-and-social-events/victoria-bc-meet-up-friday-2-mar-2018-4pm/

With Chaplin moving to Victoria we can easily hit 4 Victorians and blow the current record out of the water! :)

It was great meeting the Victorians!

This is about the only style of Victorian I can aspire to achieve: http://www.victorian-era.org/victorian-era-beards-growing.html
