Sounds like a great idea!  2 shots down...none to go!

Alright, so throw up dates in July for people to find the best spot?

I'm busy this weekend, but free for the next lifetime. Yay for FIRE.

How about Sat, July 17, with a rain date of Sunday July 18.  2pm?

Britannia again? 

Offers lots of parking, excellent cycling access, swimming, a great Burger joint (Baja Burger), close to ice cream (Beachconers), and public facilities.

I can send out a bat signal to our mailing list, as well as the Group FI folk too.

Thanks for sending out the email @oneyearfromnow. It sounds like there's a lovely plan for a meetup. We're out of town that weekend (busy summer!), but I have attached the map.

MEET UP TIME!

Saturday, July 17, 2021   (Rain date: Sunday July 18)
Time:  2pm - 5pm
Where:   Britannia Park - where we held the last meetup.   Map (hopefully) is in quote.     You'll note that we are not that far away from Beachconers..........

Other wise - put these Coords in Google:  45.36543405590801, -75.79861203352351

Please be respectful of current guidelines for group meetings, give each other space, bring your own snacks / chairs etc.

Please let me know if you can be there.

I should be able to make it : )

I'll be coming in from the south end so if there is anyone in Barrhaven who would like a ride, let me know. I should be double vacc'ed by then (I'm scheduled for my second dose tomorrow).

I won't be able to make it after all. Hope everyone has fun and that I can make it to the next one.

Darn, it looks like I won't be able to make it after all.  And the weather is perfect, cloudy so no sunburn. 

Next time.

Shoot!  Just remembered the meetup now.  A full 24 hours late.  See, ER makes you forget when the weekend is...a good thing.  Missing out on fun...a bad thing!

How was it!?

How was it!?

It was a lovely afternoon, with a nice size group!  There were people who belong to the Group FI Facebook group joining us as well.

I was so happy to see people again!

Maybe a meetup in August?
