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.

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.

Cool, I live in the interior and I'll be on the island at some point in the next month or two, but probably not May 24.  Hopefully I can make it to a meet up one of these years

JS if you are in the Victoria area post in one of these threads or drop me a PM. It's not that hard to convince us to get together and drink beer. ;)

I scored a tourism assignment in Cranbrook and will be flying out Thursday
Have a great day, the weather looks awesome and you guys should be able to soak up a fun patio afternoon.

R-C - how do we find you?  Do you have a ‘go-to’ spot or even a sign?  See you all at 4pm...

Upstairs at a table (not in the pool table area).

RC usually has a baseball hat on and looks like he just rolled out of the woods.

I'll be there around 4:30pm. Coral coloured sleeveless blouse. Shoulder length, brown wavy hair.

See you soon!

Ha! Go upstairs. Walk towards windows. I am at table in right corner. Grey baseball cap, tan shirt. Drinking beer.

For folks that were at last meet up it's the same table.

Was looking forward to the meet up, but last minute schedule changes mean I am on child minding today. Have a great evening in the sun.

Awesome Meet Up folks. We ended up with 5 MMMers. 3 regulars and 2 newbies. A good time was had by all. :)

So I am thinking Friday 21 Sept 2018 for the next Meet Up. Let me know if that date sounds good. If you'd prefer something else make a suggestion.
