    Please watch out for the asshole Andrew Lee and his mini-me as they might try to crash the events. If you see them please let an organizer know! And don't give him you number!

    August 10, 2013

    • Mila C.

      I'll give him 911 number Gord :)

      1 · August 10, 2013

    • Gord

      Ed knows how he looks like. He doesn't have a profile here but he might have a fake profile or sign up as a girl. Remember last month when you guys were playing Ultimate frisbee? Andrew even tried to interupt the game and asked for some one's number as he was leaving.

    I had to change my RSVP, I couldnt get my shift traded out. I put a request in that if they are not busy I want to leave early, so I may show up with moolah in my grubby fists. If I dont get out early I might drop by around 3ish. The last one sounded like so much fun I am still kicking myself for missing it.

    August 9, 2013

    • Ed

      come by at 3ish. from the looks of this we may have food for you by then.

      Hi Kim, At our bbq event, we seek to provide something for everyone. we had some people playing boardgames (cards against humanity) on a blanket. The more active people were playing ultimate firsbee.

  • Benny

    Hi Organizers, do we bring $15 cash and give it to you or do we bring food worth $15 to the event? Also if we were to give you $15 cash, what kind of food and beverage could we expect from you and we don't need to bring any food ourselves? Thanking you in advance, this will be my first meetup. Excited and looking forward.

    August 8, 2013

    • Ed

      Hi Benny, welcome to extremely shy, we look forward to meeting you. we invite you to bring a homemade dish or $15 cash. We have great food from skewers to corn and other great food. Because we believe in not wasting food, we send a food runner every hour to Safeway to get new food as needed. Feel free to check our our Picts from the past BBQ (in the description) to see what food we have.
