À propos de ce groupe

Hello,

I'm creating this group to utilize meetup for any kind of event or activity that I want to do, but need more people to go do them. It's not a group that only goes to pubs or only goes dancing or is focuses on some small niche like a lot of groups on Meetup. The goal of this group is to do a variety of different things.

I was part of a Meetup like this in Toronto called the Random Activity Group and we did a lot of different events. The group grew larger and larger and I had some great experience there meeting many extraordinary people along the way.

Now I'm new to Montreal and hoping to get something similar going here. I've included some things that I did while I was in that group and some things I would like to do myself Montreal in what this Meetup is about, but I'm completely open to setting up almost any kind of event if people are interested in doing it.

Things I did mostly in Toronto
- Hosting Board Game nights every week at a cafe.
- Hosting a pool league at a pool hall every Monday.
- Learnt how to and began regularly Rock Climbing.

Cool things I did there less often.
- Learnt how to skate
- Went to movies with people
- Ate meals at interesting restaurants
- Meet for drinks and conversation
- Snowboarding/Skiing trips
- Camping trips
- Gathered to experience local events and festivals

Some people even got together to discuss current events and politics.

A few things to note about the group.
1. ) I don't really care to make this a money making venture. I would like to do either free events or events where everyone only pays for their tickets or fares at the venue. I won't make events that earn me money.
2.) I would like to do stuff with people that are relatable, hopefully having similar interests in events is sufficient to help, but for the sake of comfort I'd like the group to be mostly reasonably mature people. Probably between early or mid 20's to mid to late 30's. I certainly don't want to have events with people under the drinking age because I don't want to be indirectly responsible for underaged drinking.
3.) I want the group to be fun! I'd like to organize and host events that people really want to try or they are passionate about doing. No idea is a bad idea as long as you're interested and want to help make it happen, I'd be glad to create the event. That's about it, I'm open to questions, comments and suggestions from anyone that joins or attends any events. Let's have some great experiences together!

Lastly, I will mention that since I got to Montreal I have bene going to a Gymnastics place near Atwater market to learn some things, I may host some events there in the future to get more people involved.

Bouldering at Shakti

Shakti Rock Gym

Anyone here interested in rock climbing? Bouldering is a variation where you climb without ropes or harnesses (always at a safe distance from the ground!). As a result you don't have to go through any accreditation lessons to get started; you can just jump on the wall right away! It's one of my favorite things to do and I'd love to meet more people to climb with :) Shakti is located at the corner of St. Viateur and de Gaspe, about a 10 minute walk from either the Rosemont or Laurier metro station. I've been climbing here for roughly a year and it's been a blast. Everyone here is super friendly and helpful, no matter what your skill level. Speaking of, if you're new to climbing and feeling a little hesitant I hope you'll give it a try anyway. You'll find a physical activity that's more about using your brain and balancing your weight properly than having raw strength. I've even gotten my parents into it :P Anyway, that's enough out of me. Hope to see you there! Price: $13 for day pass + $5 for climbing shoes if you don't have your own. https://shaktirockgym.com/rates/

Bouldering is a form of rock climbing without gear and above the safety of giant mats.

You can easily find me climbing around: it isn't crowded in the morning.

Eat, drink and draw ! ~ #47

Parc Lafontaine

PLEASE CHECK THE SCREENSHOT POSTED ON THIS EVENT : IT'S THE MAP FOR THE MEETING (google map is wrong) Eat, drink & draw is an event every two weeks on Facebook where's it's all about to eat, drink and draw (SURPRISE!) in a nice place. It's different place every session! Whatever you can barely hold a pen in your hand, or are a talented artist who wants to share his/her passion with other people, you're very welcome to come and have a good time! Subject/idea/thematic will be offered if you need some inspiration, but you're also free to come and work on your own personal project. SO THIS TIME : Summer is coming and to celebrate it in the shade of the coconut trees 🌴🌞, I propose to meet you at Lafontaine Park for a drawing session in the open air. If the weather does not change by then, it should be 27 ° C; So think of adding your best tube of sunscreen to your artist basket! 😎 // WHEN ↓ This Saturday, June 22, from 15h00 // WHERE ↓ At the edge of Lake Lafontaine Park, near the bridge: see the beautiful plan drawn with my PC pad posted on the event. I propose to sit in the grass at the edge of the water closest to the bridge possible (if it's free) to be able to join easily (and to be close to toilets) // WHAT ↓ We will not have the comfort of a coffee, so I suggest you to bring: - a rigid support (drawing board, book ....) to put on your lap to draw more comfortable - a blanket / plaid / etc to sit / lie on the ground if you do not like the grass that stings - your drinks / snacks to share (or not) // REMINDER - These drawing sessions are open to everyone regardless of the level or non-level, the goal being to meet nice people by drawing without pressure and judgement - These are not classes, the drawing is free - Bring your own drawing material because I do not provide anything (but I lend my stuff if you forget!) - We speak in english, we speak in french, don't be shy! See you soon ! Estelle FYI, my FB's page is "Dessiner, boire & manger à Montreal" where you can have a look on the previous sessions. This meetup is companion event of the FB's page event. https://www.facebook.com/events/1311154339039586/
