-Water
-Appropriate Clothing
-an appetite
-$15 for food, propane, games & prizes.
-A towel or blanket to sit on.
- Any games or fun activities to pass the time (Frisbee, Volleyball, kite etc...)

 

As this is a ESV community event, we invite everyone to participate and help out. We're looking for someone with a BBQ grill and someone to organize games and activities please let us know if you are interested in helping out.

We are looking for a few chefs to prepare some food to share. Please let us know if you are interested in helping out. Depending on how many people helping, we may make skewers, wings and a bunch of other goodies!

=============Where to meet==============

We're meeting at Kits point, at the picnic benches under the trees overlooking the beach and looking at Stanley park (look at the map)


(fuzzy turtle, Tommy, is hangin' out where we'll be)

    Hi Ed & all,

    I am skipping the Ultimate Frisbee for a 'good' cause. Food for the few terribly hungry that cannot wait! I will bring it as close to noon as possible. I may need some help to carry the two pots in.

    I have prepared some Slow Cooked Turmeric Chicken and am now making some rice to go with it. It is my first attempt at this dish so any feedback as to how to improve on it from those few who get to try it would be nice!

    Good eating! Then... run after the frisbee some more!
    ;-)

      Hello Dharen, welcome to Extremely Shy. here's an article on making the most out of each extremely shy meetup event: http://www.meetup.com...­
      we look forward to seeing you on saturday.

  • Ivan

    Hey guys, the Vancouver Folk Fest is also happening that same weekend at Jericho Beach, I know a lot of people go out there just to hang out and listen to music outside of the festival boundaries. Do you guys wanna move this month's event to there, that way we can get to hear live music too!

    July 13, 2013

    • Ed

      Jericho beach is a little ways off. and folk music fest is so expensive! $165 for a weekend pass... OUCH! i think there will be many people setting up camp near by so it will be hard to find space and be all together.

      July 13, 2013

    • Ivan

      Oh I was just thinking of listening to the music for free by hanging out close to the festival. $165 is a lot for a festival, but I guess it could be kinda busy, unless we get there early to save a spot…
