Hi fellow hobbyists!

Anyone up for a monthly social meetup in the lower mainland? Share AEFW war stories, fish tales and whatever reefing related topics over beers.

The frag swap was great to connect with fellow hobbyists so let's continue the trend.

Any takers?

I'd be down with that. Great suggestion. Those reefers in Calgary get together over wings. We should do it over kale and quinoa salad:lol:

I'd be into it, but only if we spent time talking without people futszing with their phones/texts etc

Nothing I hate more than people spending time on their phones when we are in person :twised:
I mean, c'mon, can't you ignore your phone for a half hour while we talk ?

And have everyone break into a numbing cold sweat and go mute because trying to talk without the mutli task of texting at the same time paralyzes them with the fear of missing a blip and then pretend to have to go to the bathroom so they can check their phone....Seems like a little much to ask Gregory

What's a centralized location for everyone?

The MetroTown area in Burnaby is probably central to the Lower Mainland. We just have find someone willing to host or agree on a restaurant or coffee shop.

If the place where we had the frag swap isn't too far for everyone, I could perhaps ask the guys that run the lounge to let us host our meetings there.

They have beer, wings and a bunch of different types of food as well as TVs incase we need to watch some boring reef videos :mrgreen:

I'm in, I think New Westminster is about as central as it gets for a get together, but I agree with Greg leave the phones "off", I mean really a cell phone is not a crucial body part that has to be up and running 24/7, we can actually talk to one another while we are trying to enjoy swapping reefing info and tips. :tea:

Anyway, if this has legs, I'll go talk to Sube over the weekend about using Mezz :D

What day works for everyone?

*** We can even have some unofficial frag swapping on the side (shhhhh, super secret stuff).

New Westminster looks pretty central on this lower mainland map and the Boathouse restaurant at Riverside Quay can offer an area for a get together in the back section of their restaurant at no charge just buy your beer, coffee or whatever and they have appie's too. They just need a bit of notice to set it up. And hey J&L and other LFS are not far away.

Have a look at this map >>> http://www.hellobc.com/getmedia/0311461e-5003-4da8-8d4b-029ea716729d/maps-lower-mainland.pdf.aspx

I have avoided going to all of these things due to the location.
How on earth is the Mezz central to everyone? Unless the only people you consider being worth including are from Richmond and Vancouver.

East New West or South Coquitlam or near JL are good options. They leave lots of room for Fraser valley people to join. Those from Surrey or Richmond can opt to take a free bridge. Its right along Highway 1 so easy access for those from the valley or West Van. But still main roads and highways for those coming from Delta, van, or Richmond. Lots of options like Braid Station for those who have to travel by Transit. TONS of restaurant options within that area.

Wellp, no law that says there can't be multiple outtings for multiple neighborhoods :)

Mezz has been wicked for us thus far. Great food (really, it's honestly something I look forward to all the time), awesome atmosphere, and Sube and Derrick have been gracious enough to provide us with a great venue without so much as a request that we give them a few days notice.

mezz is a great place just sucks its in Richmond....45 minutes driving for me. Guys from poco, maple ridge, or even further would have a tough time justify driving all the way there. Once a year.....for sure buddy.

Now I know for a fact everyone goes to JL, so once a month meet around JL is mor likely and realistic to organize. We can try one first and see how it goes and next one can be some where else.

Doesn't always have to be same location every month. Maybe have one in Aldergrove (for the people in Langley and Abbotsford) and would be close to Oceanic Corals. Then one in Surrey somewhere, and other locations in New West, Vancouver, Burnaby, and even North Van. Some diehards will travel, but at least those that don't will have a chance to go to a local one. Just saying...

Doesn't matter to me, I will travel, but the timing matters more, esp if it overlaps with some of my other fav activities.

Also maybe house visits, like the guys in Prince George do every year. I think Rich did it one year, as we had in Langley at Dave's place, too. I like to see other people's set-ups, too, and maybe learn something.

Looks like my thread has been hijacked lol!

I prefer Mezz, not cause its a 10 min drive from where I live :p . The biggest reason is no 1. They have beer! (If you pour it they will come.) and no 2. As Albert said they have been accomodating for us with the frag swap and they know what we are about.

My intention was to be an informal meetup for reefers, anyone can arrange another meetup in other cities like Burnaby, Surrey etc..

How cool would that be to have multiple social gatherings for us each month. Just don't pick the same day.

Agree with Walter, thats a great idea to rotate and have them in different areas that way everyone can potentially get out to one.

Good for you for taking some initiative. However, since Richmond is one big confusing maze of no-man's-land to North Vancouverites, I have to defer.

I will wait until we have established a site near J&L as it seems the most mentioned site. That's not to say there isn't another viable option.

I don't agree, lol. There's just a lot of separate conversations converging in one place and it makes for a lot of noise. So far as I can see, there's about four minutes worth of planning should anyone up at Burnaby + North Van feel like putting something together. It's not like you gotta make reservations to get a buncha people out for some drinks and food :)

Anyway, social meet at JL Saturday, end of month, 7 PM. Bam, if someone wants to take the reigns on that one, you have an instant meet up :D

You can spend the entire duration of the dinner with strapped to the side of your face for all I care :P

Honestly, if we can't keep someone's attention on the topic at hand, then there's no real reason to get together. I highly doubt that it's going to be an issue though. This is not to put down the 'no phone' idea, as I see a lot of value in severing the umbilical cord many of us have grown to our smart devices -- But I'm not going to ostracize or proselytize to someone who's developed an addiction (and it IS an addiction!).

Sorry everyone. I ended up working all weekend and taking care of a friend's kid as well so couldn't go to the pub with three little girls.:wink:

Hopefully make it for the next one.

Any time works for me. I can eat, drink, and talk all at once any time. I will see if anyone else has a preference and go from there.

Saturday the 23rd work or is it not enough time?

I have a feeling every single one of this is going to be when I'm not in town. Never mind the fact that I still refuse to be the only girl.
