BBQ potluck lunch with fire (if weather permits for fire)

Join me for a Potluck picnic at Goldstream Park where the Salmon Run is, not the campsites. Will have a fire as well to roast the marshmellows and wieners. Please list what you are able to bring. There is a cover in case of rain. Remember to bring your chairs. If it does rain, I will bring my BBQ to cook the wieners or smokies. Rain or shine. Unless it is very very cold.

    Thanks Kathleen for the fun outing, and accepting me last minute as I had to work that morning and didn't know when I would finish. Too bad there is no "maybe" rsvp option. Nice to meet everyone and hope someone creates a new event soon! There was talk of creating a beginners mountain bike ride up to Mt Work (the dump) soon.

    There is no parking in the lots but plenty near the entrance. I am located behind the washrooms near the covered picnic area and beside the welcome centre. Mt table has a blue cover and I am in a blue horse coat.

    Sorry I won't be able to make it this time..set the wrong alarm on my phone and slept wayyyy past the time I should have. So far behind schedule I wouldn't be able to make it there for probably another hour or so. :( I will catch you guys at the next event though! Enjoy the BBQ!!

    No Worries! Goldstream easy to find. If you cant find the group, send em a note using the meetup phone app that says, "Help! Im Lost! Im Standing by the enterance... Come Get Me! I got Pie!

    October 27, 2013

  • Dominique

    I drove by yesterday and the place was packed. Perhaps we should have a sign or some other means of finding the group?

    • Pierce

      Great idea - I'm new to Vic and I also signed up with Victoria Outdoor Club - last weekend they had a bbq and I went and as I had never been there before I ended up not finding the group - it was packed - and just drove back home. I posted on their site but no one responded... I inquired about there being any signage again no response. Hopefully next time there will be someway of recognizing the group.

    I got the last fire pit. I am near the goldstream welcome centre.

    For anyone who is familiar with the area, is the entrance hard to find? I have never been there and hoping not to get too lost, lol! Any directions would be greatly appreciated! :)

    October 26, 2013

    • Selina

      Yes, I know where the park is, just not the entrance, so I hope I can find it ok, lol. I will be bringing the Chinese cabbage salad. :)

      When you come off the highway the entrance is right there. You have the sign and parking is all around you. Look for the covered area to your right. Follow the fire smell and you shall find it..lol!

    Anyone up for a short two hour hike before attending the barbeque. Jot me a line...Cheers! :)

      Hi Dominique. I just brought one bag or marshmellows so the more the merrier. I have wood too, but the more the better. Last time I did this, I almost ran out of wood. Thanks.

  • Tanya

    Hi, Joining in last minute. If there's anything in particular that's still needed, please let me know. Otherwise, I'll bring turkey hotdogs or smokies and ... salsa and chips. Open to suggestions, if other items are needed more.

    Will any charcoal briquettes be needed? I have most of a large bag that I can't use and would be happy to see used or given away. Will bring in case anyone is interested.

      Hi Tanya. We are doing the hotdogs on the fire with logs that I am providing. I have someone bringing smokies already, but I do not have turkey wierners. Just beef. You you would like to provide chicken wings, or cheese and crackers, that would be great. Bring your camping chair..

  • Jeevan

    hi, just joined this event last minute, is there anything in particular you need? also, is anyone driving there from the Uvic Area, or know which bus will get me to the place where you are meeting? thanks!

    October 26, 2013

    • Stephen

      Hi Jeevan, I'm off the corner of Mckenzie and Shelbourne. If you need a ride please contact me through my email and I'll give you my address . Cheers!

      Hi Jeevan. If you can bring potato salad, that would be great. Or if you have a dish that has not been mentioned that you wish to share, that is wonderful too. Do not forget to bring your camping chair.

    Hello everyone. I have 25 attending as of 5pm Sat. Please let me know soonest if you can not make it. Remember your chair. There is the Salmon Run going on so it may get busy. My plan B is to bring a table for the food if I can not get a table. I plan to move it near a fire pit if possible. If you have not told me what you plan to bring, please check the discussion board or comments below to see what others are bringing. See you all tomorrow...

    October 26, 2013

  • Dominique

    Hi,

    It looks like I'll be able to make this event after all though I won't be staying very long (an hour or maybe hour and a half).

    I will be leaving from Gordon Head so if you need a ride from there or the UVIC area please message me directly with address and phone number (i.e. don't post here or it'll go out to everyone). I will be out most of the day but I'll respond this evening if I can offer you a ride.

    Also, to those who wish to pay their dues, this would be a great opportunity. I will be wearing a bright orange toque!

    Hello Everyone. I have made a list and only one is bringing a salad so far. Some items that would be great to compliment the BBQ would be a potato salad, macaroni salad, fruit dish, veg tray, cold meats (cold chicken wings) or other. cheeses with crackers, and more smokies. I passes by the park on the long weekend and it was sooooo packed. I will be arriving an hour before in order to snatch up a picnic table and fire pit. I hope no other party is going on.

    Hi Kathleen, Perhaps you could toss out some suggestions for items you are missing for potluck so people who are not planners (like me) can pick from that and save you from having to pick it up yourself. Thanks!

    Anyone from Oak Bay or Cadborro Bay headed that way? I could use a lift. Will help with gas.

    Hi Kathleen, I most likely won't be able to attend this event after all, but i will let you know within a week. If i pass boot camp this Saturday at the Fraser Valley University, I will be occupying a seat for the Pre-apprentice Lineman program which start Oct 27, 2013. Cheers!

      I can't believe it, but yesterday I declined a Winder position with BC Hydro, and today I find out the Oct intake is cancelled due to reregistration numbers. When it rains it pours, so it looks like you will have to put up with me after all. Cheers!!
