[ESV] End of Summer BBQ! Olympics Themed party

PLEASE NOTE WE'RE HAVING OUR BBQ AT TROUT LAKE INSTEAD OF OUR USUAL LOCATION.

As food has been ordered, please do not no show. No shows will be marked and may be bumped from future events.

It's almost the end of summer, let us celebrate with a blast in our own RESERVED section of the park! Our theme for this month will be summer meetup olympics!

Olympics is coming to Vancouver... well not really, but the FIRST EVER meetup Olympics will be coming out to Vancouver! Summer is going to be over, lets have one huge party to celebrate the end of summer and the coming of the fall season.

A couple orgs from a few of our fellow meetup groups are planning on meeting together for a huge celebration of unity and socializing under the them of meetup Olympics! come out for an afternoon of celebration, socializing and friendly competition with friends from Extremely shy and from similar meetup groups. We will be planning some games from 3 legged races to obstacle courses to everyone's favourite... water fight (dependent on if we have sufficient interest)!! 


We are going to have our annual end of summer BBQ party at our VERY OWN reserved picnic area at Trout Lake Park at the gazebo. I have reserved the gazebo area allowing us to socialize and enjoy the sun and activity.

Because we will have multiple meetup teams coming out we would like to form a team of Extremely Shy Friends to represent our group for the Gold. Did i mention there is a prize for the winning team? It's gonna be Legen-waitforit-Dary! Legendary!

What to bring: 
-Blanket to sit on 
-Water 
-$15 to chip in for food, games, rental, equipment and prizes
-Good sportsmanship (this is all friendly competition)

Final note: If you have been to an Extremely Shy BBQ/Picnic before and would like to help out, either with specific activities that day or just with general duties, then I would love to hear from you. Please send me an email and let me have your ideas and input and what you are able to assist with and let's make this a spectacular day for everyone.



(Tommy's gonna be there, ready to win some GREEN medals ..'cause green medals are waaaaay better than gold medals!)


Where to find us:

Head onto victoria drive and head south until you see the park. we're at the gazebo next to the beach. If you are driving, there is plenty of parking at the south parking lot near the gazebo.
