Thanks!

In essence:

"Sunday July 7, 3 pm, Britannia Park, east end of the park (which is less crowded), bring chairs or a blanket to sit on as there aren't many tables out that way.  Bring some snacks to share."

The map was posted by Novik on June 25, scroll back a page and you'll see it.

Looking forward to seeing you there!  Looks like we have around 10 or so expecting to come, and there may be others from OYFN's e-mail contact list.

Hi, I'm working this weekend, but could you add me to the list for future meet ups? Or is there an easy way to subscribe?
Thanks a lot. Have a good time!

Hello!

I've sent out an email to our list, and have sent PM's to other's letting them know about the event.

See you all Sun - July 7th @ 3pm
Britannia Park/Beach.

My laptop is not liking attaching the map that Bingeworker sent me.... If someone else is more capable - please post!

Hi Dr_Sassy,

Send me a PM with your email address, and I'd be happy to add you to the list!

Reminder for Sunday!   

See you all Sun - July 7th @ 3pm
Britannia Park/Beach.

We are on the eastern side of Britannia park, on the grass.   There is a parking lot close, and we are just off the bike path.  I'll be wearing a bright green Hawaiian shirt, that has white plumeria flowers on it.   Should be easy to spot!


There may be some members of the Ottawa ChooseFI book'o'faces  group coming too!

Hello Ottawa Frugal Friends!

Meetup time!   The date and time has to be set - but I'm up for a mutually agreeable location.

I have the delightful opportunity to host Prairie Moustache and partner while they are visiting this fair city.   The MMM crowd is small in Saskatoon, so I'd like to give them the chance to meet up with a vast and amazing group!

Date:  Sunday Aug 25, 2019
Time:  3PM to say 6PM
Location?  Another park?  Britannia was nice, although there seemed to be some parking issues.  The Farm?  Would someone else like to have the opportunity to host?

I will also send an email to the group - as well as the Group FI people that we've connected with.

Howdy, I don't know if I'll be free on Sat, i'm moving on the 24th, so it depends on how chaotic it is the next day.

I just want to mention to those who haven't yet met us in real life ... don't get the impression from the photos above that we're an older bunch, most of the group average around thirtysomething it seems when we get together, and we have folks from mid-twenties into their sixties.  It's just that the greyer contingent happened to arrive early to be in the "we're here" photos that OYFN posted.  (I'm one of the grey haired fogies in it so I can say it, but we are WAY cooler looking in real life!  :-D  )

Thanks OYFN for initiating this.

Unfortunately I will be out of town that weekend.

But based on last get together , I want to remind people not to forget the watermelon this time!

LOCATION WILL BE AT DICK BELL PARK / NEPEAN SAILING CLUB.   Lots of parking, if there is rain - we can go into the sailing club itself (upstairs) 

I hope this Google maps link works :)

I was going to say I could carry one on the plane, but I reckon that's more than 100 mL of liquid.

Thanks OYFN for organizing another great meetup!  Nice to meet so many new folks today.  Great location.  I ate too many lemon squares ... I blame the lack of watermelon.

Nice to get to meet everyone! I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to visit with everyone though. I wish we had such an awesome community in Saskatoon!

If anyone is ever passing through Saskatoon (or there for a purpose, not sure what it would be), send me a PM! @oneyearfromnow was a wonderful host, I'll definitely pass along the favour!

Nothing to do with a meetup, but lots of Ottawa people here.

If anyone needs LCBO boxes or moving boxes, I will have lots of spares once I move and unpack.

We're interested. Nov 30/Dec 1 is best for us, but we'd try to make something if it was the weekend before or after. (can't do the 23rd, as we're hosting American thanksgiving, and likely have out of town guest(s) ~Dec 7)


edit: paging @BalancingFireDotCA - now that you're local, you should also come to the meetup!

Fantastic, as it is the day before we leave for a wee excursion, and as much as I would love to host again, it would be a challenge.

PM me about sending out stealth details to the Group FI, and other local MMM peeps on my mailing list.

Oh...Just saw this.  This one wouldn't have worked for me, as closing for our Kanata house was the 29th, and we just had too much going on with moving.  Next time though!  I'm going to turn on email notifications for this group now so I don't miss the next meetup.
