There are four meetings in the near future. The first will take place on
Sunday, August 15th, at 1:00pm, at Yamato Dessert Cafe, 1322 Centre St NE. The second will take place on
Tuesday, August 24th, at 6:30pm, at Belgo Brasserie, 501 8th Av SW. The third will take place on
Tuesday, September 7th, at 6:30pm, at Good Earth Cafe,[masked]th St SW. The fourth will take place on

These are 3, 12, 26, and 40 days from now.
Please go now and RSVP.
Those of us who know how opposed I am to member fees will be very surprised at the following news. I have been opposed to member fees to the point of not even accepting tooneys from members at meetings as some organisers do. I pay the organiser fees out of my pocket.
I will be asking members for a voluntary donation of a looney ($1) at the regular meetings. The festival-type meetings wil be exempt for logistical reasons.
I am still opposed to membership fees. This is to solve a temporary problem, and I am hard lining a termination for this. I will cease collecting loonies on October 14th.
Note that on Tuesday, August 24th we have an event at Belgo Brasserie. I have won a coupon for free wine or beer and appetizer for up to 25 people.
Because I amost never use the "RSVP deadline" feature I must specifically draw our attention to the fact that I have set an RSVP deadline for Sunday, August 22nd, at 6:30pm. So, if you want your free beer and appetizer, please reply now.
I must make a reservation, so our group's only rule, The Rule, is even more important than usual. Life happens, but if you reply "Yes", and for any reason you can't show, call me on my cell at[masked], and tell me that you are not coming.
Thanks. Let's enjoy this event and have fun!
I am looking forward to seeing us at the meetings!
