Canada Day BBQ

Hello everybody. Summer is finally here, at least on the calendar. And we had some requests for a Canada Day BBQ. So lets do it!

We're going to have it at Spanish Banks. A good place for a BBQ. There is free parking and even an off-leash dog area if you want to bring your dog along.

Let's meet at the last parking lot at Spanish Banks and we'll set up at the field beside it.

We will bring some burgers, hot dogs, snacks, paper plates, and condiments.

If anyone has a portable BBQ, please bring that because we don't have one at the moment. As well as any foldable chairs and any other food dishes you would like to share :)

And bring anything that you would like to play with on the field, or in the water... ie: frisbees, hacky-sacks, footballs, bocci, paddleboard, etc.

I know it can get pretty busy, especially on Canada Day, so I'll be going there early and try to reserve a good spot for us. Also, if you have data on your phone, download the meetup app and I'll keep everyone updated on where we are if you can't find us on the day of.

Please leave comments below if you are planning on bringing anything so we know what we need and what we don't need. Thanks!

Hope to see everyone there!

    Hi guys, it's supposed to be extremely hot so if we should enjoy this, we all need some shade. We were at the Jazz Fest in David Lam Park on Sat and the heat was unbearable. Unless we are very lucky, all the trees on Spanish Banks will be taken by the time we get there. So we're going to buy an umbrella (hopefully, they're not all sold out!). If you have one, take it with. See you tomorrow!:)

    Okay everybody. I'm going to list out what each person is going to bring so we're all on the same page.

    Chris and Meg - S'mores/hot dogs and hot dog buns
    Hanka and Pawel - BBQ/meat/snacks/Paper plates/cutlery/napkins
    Robyn and Cory - Steak/an appie/ketchup, mustard, and relish?
    Christine and Mike - BBQ/picnic stuff/salad or fruit
    Kris and wife - Hamburgers and burger buns/cans of pop
    Elliot and Nancy - potato salad/guacamole and chips

    Kris and wife - are you bring a cooler as well? If you don't have one, then we can bring the drinks with a cooler full of ice instead.

    Does anyone have foldable chairs?

      Hey, we'll bring two tables and a cooler with us.

      June 29, 2013

    • Elliot

      Plus the area we are going to has picnic tables already. Hopefully we can claim one of them.

      June 29, 2013

  • Christine

    Is anyone bringing plates, napkins etc? Or should we each bring our own?

    June 26, 2013

    • Robyn

      If no one's bringing ketchup/mustard, I can grab those!

      June 27, 2013

    • Chris C.

      Oh, is no one bringing hot dogs? We can totally also bring hot dogs and buns.

      June 27, 2013

  • Kris H.

    I can pick up the rest, the only problem is my wife and I are working so we might not get there until 1.30pm. If that's ok then we will bring the remaining things?

    June 27, 2013

  • Chris C.

    It looks like we don't have any deserts yet, so Meg and I will bring materials for s'mores (and aluminum foil to make them on the grill).

    June 25, 2013

    • Elliot

      S'mores! Good idea, thanks!

      June 25, 2013

    Cory can bring steak, I'll bring an appie

    Hi everyone, we will also bring a bbq, some meat to throw on it and some snacks. Looking forward to it!

  • Christine

    We can bring a BBQ! Will also bring some other picnic related stuff, and a salad or fruit or something like that! Does the BBQ go on rain or shine?

    June 21, 2013

    • Elliot

      Awesome! I wouldn't mind doing it rain or shine, but we would need a tent or tarp to cover us if it does rain...
