      February 22, 2014

    Hey guys! Is the snowshoe thing still happening? It looks like most people will just be at the pool hall, so I just want to make sure there is definitely still an interest from the two(?) people left.

    February 22, 2014

    • Alan

      Well I'm still going, because it's a really beautiful day out!

      February 22, 2014

    • Jasmine R.

      Actually, I'll have do the boring thing and just come for the pool portion of the evening. My hub's just gotten a call to take a job late tonight, so I told him I'd keep the baby busy until bedtime so he can have a nap and rest up.
      Enjoy the snow! It's gorgeous out there today. I'm off to the park to enjoy it right now.

  • arjun c.

    Hello, in case I can't make it for snowshoeing could you let me know the location for pool? Thanks.

    February 22, 2014

  • Eryn A.

    Does anyone still have a pair if snowshoes I could use? :)

    February 22, 2014

    • Alan

      Yup! And where is a good place to pick you up?

      February 22, 2014

    • Eryn A.

  • Константин Б.

    February 22, 2014

  • Jasmine R.

    I've got an extra pair of snowshoes, but could use a ride. Barter?

    February 20, 2014

    • Alan

      I can pick you up. Where's a good spot to meet?

      February 22, 2014

    • Jasmine R.

      Actually, I just realized it's a lot closer than I thought. I can catch a bus. Thanks for the offer though. Looking forward to meeting everyone.

      February 22, 2014

  • Laura G.

    Is there a place nearby that you can rent snowshoes? For those that don't own a pair.

    February 21, 2014

    • Alan

      Not that I'm aware of, unfortunately

      February 21, 2014

  • Lena

    Jack and I are joining you guys at the pool hall :)

    February 21, 2014

  • Lena

    Well, I'm in... But could somebody tell me what we are now actually doing? :D

    February 20, 2014

    • Alan

      I think we're pretty much decided, so no more voting is necessary. Arjun, I can probably acquire a pair for you if you're interested! Also depending on conditions that day we might do something else (build snowmen or forts or something). So don't write us off for the afternoon. :)

      February 20, 2014

    • arjun c.

      If you can get me a pair for the afternoon then i shall try my hand or i guess feet at snowshoeing for sure!

  • Laura G.

    I'm still a maybe but I may be late to the festivities. Alan, if I'm back I will FB you when I'm back in town on Saturday and see if it's not too late to join.

    February 20, 2014

    • Alan

      Sounds good, I'll keep my phone handy!

      February 20, 2014

  • Alister C.

    We would need to tally up the votes to figure out the final activity/ies. Popular vote says pool & drinks at the END of the night.
    Need more data/votes for an activity before then.

    February 20, 2014

  • Alan

    I can't seem to find how to edit an event, but I have devised a potential master plan. So in the afternoon we can go snowshoeing, 5 until 7 pm ish, then depending on how late people are willing to be up we can do a bonfire for an hour or so, then head to the pool hall to finish out the evening when non-snowshoers could join in the party. Or if we want we can skip the fire and save it for another time, going right to pool earlier. Please comment with your vote on this (fire or no), and then the final itinerary can be made. :) My vote is the latter, so we can have a proper fire another time, and to accommodate more pool time for the whole group. I hope everyone's week is going swimmingly!

      It's supposed to rain Friday and Sat and It's going to be warm from now till then. May not be the best weather for snowshoeing...

      February 20, 2014

    • arjun c.

      I vote drinks and pool! No problems with rain then.

    Laser Quest*(Rockstar+Vodka) = Yes

    Suggestion #1 The temperate weather on Saturday will be ideal for some outdoor activity! I suggest a ridiculous scavenger hunt in the heart of the city. Where two teams go head to head preforming tasks like hugging a homeless person or purchasing a risque combination of items at the grocery store. Of course taking pictures all along the way documenting everything. Then ending the evening by warming up and getting some chow at an establishment that can accommodate our hooligan posse. Like this comment if you approve of this foolish plan!

    • Alister C.

      I don't think the bustling downtown would be ideal for a group activity; too many sketchy government spies fronting as homeless for my taste- they're very salty!

      For an outside street activity*

      February 18, 2014

  • Andrew W.

    I like the snowshoeing idea. It sounds awesome.

      What are we? A nation of ducks?!? I'll be Donald please.

      1 · February 18, 2014

  • Jasmine R.

    I'm up for anything, but won't be able to join you until mid-afternoon at the earliest. Looking forward to meeting y'all!

    Suggestion #2 We should keep it simple. It is short notice and planning is hard. So I suggest we go play pool and commence the boozening at the Cue and Cushion on bank street. For it's central location and because it has many tables and is not packed with dudebros like Maclarens. :) Like this comment if you approve of this equally foolish plan!

    Just wanted to throw it out there, that i am glad i found this group. Being an intl. student in the "no. 1 boring place in Canada" is well, Boring!

    3 · February 17, 2014

  • arjun c.

    can we do pool and drinks? or maybe movie and potluck?

    February 17, 2014

  • Rosalie

    1) I had thought it might be fun to go to a comedy club like absolute comedy or yuk yuks. But that could be an idea for another day. 2) Playing pool sounds great, even though I am no good lol! 3) Also like Laura's idea of snowshoeing. Let me know what you guys decide, so many options :P!

    February 17, 2014

  • Alister C.

    Bravo on the creativity! So much choices... so much to choose from... the options!

    February 17, 2014

  • Laura G.

    I'm going to have to go with maybe/hope, it depends on when I get back in town but if it's in the late aft/evening, I should be good. Feel free to carry on without me though, I really like the idea of everyone running the show. I like all those ideas, we should do all of them someday.

    1. Pool (for ease of organizing)
    2. Snowshoeing and bonfire with mershmellers sounds hamazing.
    3. Tobogganing/snowman building competitions. It seems like it might be tolerable winter this weekend.
