This group excels in running great events, having good times, and providing the chance to meet some awesome people! Everyone in the Burnaby/East Vancouver area should join. We'll experience all the wallet-friendly thrills this city to offer, together!

What we are about:
The Fun For Next To Nothin’ Meetup Group (FFNTN) is about connecting with people to make friends and meaningful relationships. Our group posts and does events that are free (or inexpensive) that a variety of age groups can attend.
Some things we do:
Cultural events
Holidays parties
Museums
Trivia nights
Game nights
Hiking
Skating
Snowshoeing
Park parties / picnics
Fencing
Dinner’s
Food-carts

Some things we don’t do:
Pub-crawls
Club nights
Singles that want to mingle
Last minute events (minimum 3 days notice)

Why these events and not others? Through suggestions and conversations with members, as well as the organizing teams input of what we want our culture to be, we have decided not to post certain types of events. People have different definitions of fun, but for us we want safety and respect to be near the top. Alcohol can negatively impact these values so we don’t center our events around it. We are not against drinking, but events with this focus are not our priority.

Can anyone post an event? Yes and No. Anyone can suggest an event, but not all events will be posted. Each event will be filtered though the following considerations:Do people have time to RSVP (Minimum of three days)Type of event (types of events we do posted above) People's interest in event (number of people RSVP'ed)Explanation of event (please provide sufficient details to explain what the event is about, location, cost, meeting point, etc)
