Recreation Enthusiasts of Vancouver !
Welcome to the group! REV is in the process of reforming. I, Kimberley, am one of the original organizers who is back once again, but I need your help...REV was once a vibrant group with lots of activities and can be so again. We need energetic co-organizers who would like to post at least one event per month. The events can be just about anything with a caveat: this is a not for profit group aimed at fun for everyone so therefore events to make money are not welcome unless it is a recognized charity event with an actual activity for members to particpate in. I personally, am not looking for ideas for events but for people who want to organize/post/host their own events, these new organizers may want the ideas however, so once reorganized please feel free to send them in.
It is unfortunate that someone removed all of the photos from our prior events, but we will create more! REV has always been about building a sense of community among it's members and with other Meetup groups. I have now opened up the membership to all, but will not tolerate any harassment or abuse of members by other members, this means immediate removal from the group.
I would love to see our calendar full of activites, from hikes and card playing, to movies, walks, potluck picnics, wine tasting trips, introductory lessons in anything, camping trips, coffee and philisophical discussions, musical and theatrical events, scavenger hunts ;-), and whatever suits the group. Activites are not limited to Vancouver, let's get out of our safety zones. This is a group for fun, not personal politics. All ideas are welcome but may not neccessarily be implemented.
So please contact me if you would like to become an organizer.
Thanks kindly for your enthusiasm and patience,
UPDATE May 8/14
Thanks for stopping by! I am brand new as the organizer of this meetup group! (I still have the price tag on and not even out of the box - new! LOL)
I am hoping to do a little bit of something for everyone in this group.
Some like hiking, some like a little more adventure! Some like to relax and unwind, others will like to get a little crazy!
I understand scheduling, location of events will not be for everyone. I will do my best - Hell! I want to have some fun too! That is why we are here! To live life a little more then what we are!
I will do my best to spread things (events) around.
Eg. One event on north shore and next one out in the valley.
Hopefully we can get some hiking in this summer, camping trips, some 4x4ing, a day zip-lining in Whistler, BBQ or bonfire night, road trip up a natural hot-spring........etc
Even something as simple as a baseball game, meeting up for fireworks, pub nights and having a paintball war game!
I welcome any suggestions for meetups, I will do my best to answer any questions!
I look forward to seeing you out there!
