Re: [Vancouver-Ladies-Only-Travel] New Meetup: Ladies Get Together
Hi all – the cancellation was posted on the website, but I got a group email as well (my settings allow this), and thankfully I checked email on my lunch break so got the news before heading into Burnaby.  How unfortunate some showed up without knowing about the change (and glad to hear you made the best of it!)

Perhaps, given the number of interested participants, holding a meeting in a library meeting room, or someone’s board room at work would allow more to attend without the hassle of trying to book a large group into a restaurant. If there’s a charge for the room (nominal at a library I should think), we could all pitch in a buck or two to cover the costs.  Wouldn’t be quite the ambiance, I suppose, but probably a better chance of getting to know each other anyway because restaurant settings can be noisy (those at one end of the table won’t be able to chat with those at the either end...etc).  Of course, we could also wait til the weather is a bit more promising and meet in a park and have a potluck/picnic or something...

Anyway, just thought I’d toss that out there for consideration. I’m happy to meet in a restaurant, too, but can’t make it on the 28th, unfortunately.

Cheers!






She posted something on the meetup website.  I don't know how long it's been there.  It's not very courteous to cancel at the last minute when not everyone checks the website regularly.  I don't know if it even was emailed out from the website.  This happened last year where she held a meeting and everyone else showed up except her.  She didn't even call the restaurant to let us know she couldn't come.  So it's unfortunately not looking promising again.

Did I miss some very important communication regarding this evening's event?
I was at MT Boston Pizza at 6:30 pm, as were four others, but no organizer, no assistant, just us five, all first timers.  
We had a good time amongst ourselves, but I, for one, would like an explanation, please, as to what happened with this event.
Thanks very much
Shellie

Announcing a new Meetup for Vancouver Ladies Only Travel Group!

What: Ladies Get Together

When: Friday, January 22,[masked]:30 PM

Where:
Boston Pizza-metrotown
4680 Kingsway #104
Burnaby, BC V3J 1A1

First of all, I apologize for the lack of activity in the group. It's been a busy few months, but I'm committing myself to at least one activity and trip each month for 2010.

We also have a new co-organizer, Sophia. Welcome to the group, and thank you for volunteering your time!

This meetup is a general get together, for us to meet everyone, discuss future trips, ideas, etc.THere is everything from appetizers to dinner to coffee and dessert.

So far, for 2010 I have planned:

* Seattle OUTLETS Shopping Trip
* Pueblo Ingles ( http://www.morethanenglish.com/anglos/index.asp - I was thinking Aug 13-20, LA  ALBERCA)
* Manning Park hiking and canoing Weekend - I'll be hiking Mt. Frosty! Staying in their cabins w/bunks
* Los Angeles (Disneyland for sure, for me! Likely a 4 day weekend)
* Whistler

Those are my FOR SURE's to do this year I have quite a few other ideas as well- I want to run a half marathon in summer, and a full marathon at the end of the year- and the only reason I run is to go someplace exotic! I'm interested in the Phuket marathon in June, but I'm doing the conquer cancer ride June 19/20. That might be a little close. But I'd love to go to Thailand and Vietnam. For the full marathon I was thinking maybe Hawaii in December, or poss
