View Full Version : Vancouver Meetup?

08-04-2011, 11:03 PM
I would like to suggest we all get together for a photo walk or coffee/beer or what have you sometime in August. Weekends work best for me usually especially in August because it's slow but I'm guessing others might be slower at other times so I'd have to do the big "NO" and use a freelance to cover my butt at work, but I will:) I don't remember how many of us there are but I bet we could conjure up a half dozen or so:thumbup:

I'm in. But it would have to be the later part of August! Moving a business the next two weekends. But I would definitely be up for a photo shoot coffee!

See...There you go, complications already :laughing: I'm moving during the last part of the month. But....I've got a month to move as I paid rent on both places just to make the pressure stop:laughing: So OK you're in that's two...Do I hear three!....Lovin?

I'm in ! That would be awesome. I'm available in weekends too, and I would like to meet you guys. I don't know what I can learn you, but for sure I'll learn new tricks from you. :)

I might be able to make it over to van just depends on when it is, as I have a few camping trips coming up

Way cool - hope it works out!
(If we wanted to do a second one...I'll be in Vancouver for just a few days at the end of September and I'd love to meet board members if we could make it work....)

08-05-2011, 10:18 AM
Let me know what days you'll be here Marko and I'll make a point of getting time to meet up:thumbup:

And for the rest of us, maybe we could do the PNE together? It opens Saturday August 20th. If I'm right, on sun 21 you can get in free between 9am and noon.

08-05-2011, 12:42 PM
Yes Marko, let us know, and we will welcome you.
Michaelw don't forget me ;)

awesome! - looking forward to meeting people at the end of September and hopefully doing a photowalk.

But this thread is for the August meetup - so I'll post another thread for the potential Sept Vancouver Meetup at the beginning of September.
Thx! marko

We will think of some nice places to take photos.

08-05-2011, 05:16 PM
To be honest.. I'd rather do a end of September walk then the August. Life is a bit hectic this month but I know it will slow down once this month is over (umm...hopefully didn't jinx saying that). Thinking Stanley Park and the water front would be pretty cool..with downtown right there???? Just let me know! :)

You don't like the busy downtown in the summer? When summer is here, you really feel the city is alive. Sun, cool breeze, people on patios (not so many in Vancouver :( ), festivals everywhere (downtown, North Van - Lonsdale Quay, West Van -Ambleside, North Van - Deep Cove) Lovely! Lovely! Lovely!
I'm in for all meetup events.

08-05-2011, 06:21 PM
September will be a busy one for me but weekends should work out OK especially a long weekend if there are any in September. August is really quite dead in my work life. Being a Director now I'm sometimes pulled into working weekends when it's busy. Like Lovin, I'm in either way or both:)

PS September 3,4,5th work for me as It's a long weekend and we should be flatlined at work.

08-05-2011, 06:57 PM
Now lets setup a meetup for August. For me any weekend is fine.

08-05-2011, 08:21 PM
LOL.. I should rephrase what I said. I may not be able to do the August walk but I can make it for the marko one if things are going well. I may be able to do August but depends on how things are going. :P

08-05-2011, 09:05 PM
I see. So you can but you won't... I see...
Ok, let me introduce myself : I'm Marko. :)

08-05-2011, 10:20 PM
lol..well. If i must go into detail. Just moved my family now moving a huge shop and then some personal doctor things going on. So if I have time and can make it I will but September is more open to me..lol!

08-12-2011, 05:23 PM
So who's in for an Vancouver Meetup in August?
Michaelaw did you quit already? Come on :)

08-12-2011, 06:07 PM
Nah I aint' quitting just busy with work and packing for the move at the end of the month. This weekend is a washout because I have to work and I'm keeping labor costs down by working all stuff myself unless I'm able to bill labor out to client ( LOL...The conspiracy guy is tryin to watch costs:laughing:) Next weekend could be good but I don't get my event orders till Tuesday.... Well lookee there, this Sunday just got canceled, so I'm good for this Sunday:)....OK! Who's in?:)...And Look...Monday has canceled too...I can do a sleepover :laughing::laughing::laughing:

08-16-2011, 10:04 PM
So OK...PNE this Sunday then? It's free admission from 9am till noon:) Cows, chickens, sheep, lotsa people, rides...many things too shoot :thumbup:

08-16-2011, 10:31 PM
Ugh..sorry you guys. Just got the shop moving in this weekend..ugh. NOthing like three weeks behind on things. Next time for sure!!! I look forward to a walk downtown and a coffee to meet you all! kat

08-16-2011, 11:03 PM
Just an idea Kat, nothing carved in stone:) I can't believe there's only three of us from Van that are members? Anyway, I'm going to the fair this Sunday and Lovin's welcome to join in. All you lurkers...Nows the perfect time to kill off those pesky adds, sign up and do the PNE crawl :thumbup:

08-17-2011, 12:24 AM
You can count on me. I just can wait to try my new CPL filter :)

08-17-2011, 01:18 AM
So I can put this in the "official it's happening file" cool:thumbup: I've got your cell# buried somewhere in the system and I probably have it in my message box. I'll firm things up with you soon:)
