    Thank you Ed for making the bbq a great success. I enjoyed the games especially STUPID NINJA GAME. :-)

      lmao it did take a while to get it... at least for me it did... :D

    Great event filled with awesome people! Thanks, everyone, for making this possible!!!

    July 7, 2014

  • Jessica

    Ed, I didn't end up attending today but I would still like to pay you for the food cuz i'm sure you bought enough food for everyone assuming that everyone would be there. What would be the best way to get it to you? Mail you a cheque? Perhaps you can message me to make arrangements. Hopefully others who missed today's event will do the same cuz it's not fair for the expenses to come out of your pocket. Thanks for arranging everything! I'm sure it took a lot of work.

    • Ed

      Thanks for thinking of the food and such. Thankfully the uncovered expenses wasnt crippling and within my grocery budget for the month (i have to eat anyways). There were tons of extras we gave away to people with freezer space or space in their 'breadbox'. Im sure those people will be eating burgers for the next couple days.

      1 · July 7, 2014

    • Ed

      And instead of mailing me a cheque I would like to invite you to join me later this month or August on a trip to the blood bank instead. (will set up an event) or make a donation to world vision and share the receipt. it has always been in my heart to see a philanthropy component at ESV. We're very fortunate to have a lot of food to go around, but there are many families and children who go on hungry. let us as a community reach out and support them.

  • Patrick Tim W.

    Thank you everyone for coming out! I hope ed managed to return his tent!

    July 6, 2014

    • Ed

      Thanks for asking. Seems like the tent is here to stay with the group. We'll have a highly visible tent for shade for future BBQs. (They refused to take it back, we will be having a few more BBQ to spread the costs)

    A big personal thank you to everyone who made the BBQ a smashing success and enjoyable event -- whether it was through organising, iron-chef-ing, manning the grill like a champ, greeting, helping out, bringing equipment and gear, coming up with games, participating, or being friendly and welcoming! ---- (Ying, I can't seem to find your profile amongst the attendees. If you still want the recipe, please message me so I can send it your way!)

    July 5, 2014

  • Farzela

    Sorry I am working a graveyard shift and work until 12noon by the time I get home and change I won't be there till about 4. Let me know if that will be too late for food. I didn't realize I would be working an extra 4 hours. Sorry about that.

    July 5, 2014

    • Mako

      Yes it should not end at 12 or else there is no use for doing the meetup at all. Ed is right it usually goes until 4 pm.

      July 5, 2014

  • Patrick Tim W.

    Is the spot on the map accurate? Gonna be on the motorcycle and i can't use a gps...

    July 5, 2014

  • Ed

    Good morning everyone. not a drop of rain all night. the forecast says its a mix of sun and cloud. see you all at kits! We'll have a banner that says MEETUP! Canice will be your greeter for the day

    July 5, 2014

  • Farzela

    I have to work till 12 noon and then I have to leave UBC and travel by transit to Newton Surrey which takes 2 hours and then change and travel to kits. I'm looking at about 4 before I will get there. Will still come but will be very late so save some food. Let me know if you don't think it makes sense for me to go. Sorry but when work calls...

    July 5, 2014

    • Ed

      Hey Farzela, that may be a bit too late. we may be paking up by then

    • Melinda

      I could help with being a greeter/ ice breaker I'm pretty friendly ! What time would I be needed ?

      July 4, 2014

  • Jason

    Anyone in downtown want to go together? I'm new to the city so it would be helpful to go with someone.

    July 4, 2014

  • ken

    Anyone from Richmond? Maybe we can carpool :)

    July 4, 2014

  • Ed

    Random request, anyone know where we can get half a dozen potato bags? (empty cloth bags)

    1 · July 2, 2014

    • Ed

      Garbage bags aren't as durable and may look bad on camera. I may visit a farmers market to see if I can get a few potato sacks.

      July 3, 2014

  • Ed

    Hello All, we are looking for more grills to accommodate the large # of RSVPs. If you have a propane grill please send me a message.

    Also, as weather is continuously changing and forecasts are essentially just educated guesses -they are changed on an ongoing basis- please check the forecast (link in this post) on July 4th at night and July 5th before getting worried the weather may not be absolutely 1,000,000% clear.

      We cancelled last week's and the weather was nice in the afternoon. so it's hard to predict

      July 3, 2014
