We still planning something for the 21st too? I'm still in if we are.

Yup! I can do it!

Sweet. We just need to pick a time and place. So I'll throw this out there: 7 pm, Johnnie Fox's.

Just to warn you, the site does play music when you open it. I guess it's still 1992 for their webmaster.

ok! fine w/us. We can walk there from our hotel. good food good food?

Anyone else want to tag along?! =D

I'm pretty sure I'm free that evening, and the location's pretty convenient for me. I should be able to make it.

Ill be there, transit makes it really easy to get down there.

Although didn't Granville used to be closed off? They started using it as a bus only lane again.

The last (and only) time I was at Johnnie Fox's, the cook was screaming across the pub at one of the waitresses. Nice place otherwise though! I think I'll be able to make it.

If I get approved for the time off early to be up north on the 21st, I'll try to make it : )

Not to complicate things, but we are still over 3 weeks away at this point.

Does anyone feel like meeting up before then? I was thinking perhaps we could have another boardgame night at Drexoll. Sort of a sequal to the inaugural Vancouver S&T. It would have to be locals only. But from the sound of it there are quite a few of us from around here. I'd love to meet more of you.

I do! But I've got a lot of other stuff on my plate (just moved in to a new place and doing some homework for the contract I start on Oct. 21...)

But, I will definitely be there on the 21st!

I will call and see about reserving a table since it looks like we're going to have a decent turnout.

humm.... so... like

muttonchop, tamren, gravey, amoebic, mimble, cory, donut +3, primetime...... so like.. a table for 10? in case?

oh poop. they don't have a pool table? =(

No pool table, but super awesome food and a good selection of beer. I think it'll be pretty great even without the pool table.

I made reservations for ten just in case, and we'll stuff more people in if we need to. Not like they will say no to droves of paying customers.

Count me in for the Oct. 21st night as well. The more time I get to spend with some cool GWJ folks the better. Plus I can never turn down a chance to grab a few drinks.

Tamren, I'd also be up for a board game night earlier in October. Seems like there is a lot of GWjers in Vancouver, and the surrounding area, but I've never had a chance to meet any of you.

I should be free on the 21st. That's not far from where I live, so I should be able to make it. Count me in!

Guys, I'm getting totally psyched for this! It turns out they're doing the donation drawings on the 23rd with a live conference call. Are we going to for sure be getting together that night at Vector's place? And if so, does he have a machine in a place where we could all watch Ustream from or will someone need to bring a laptop?

i'm sure vec will have a laptop or i can always bring mine along... i prob will unless i'm coming from a bar that night.

I can also bring a laptop if need be - just let me know!

Just bought my train ticket! I'm totally psyched. I'm going to be spending most of that week cleaning the apartment and making room for my stuff at the apartment in new west, so it'll be really nice to break out of that and go play some gaaaaames!

Do we have details on time/place yet?

Talked to my roommates and they are cool with a party. One won't even be here for the weekend so that makes it easier.

I live at 1385 W57th, Vancouver.

I have a laptop. We usually hook my laptop up to the big screen to watch movies too.

Edit: Oh yeah if it seems I've gone AFK from GWJ it's because I'm busy with school trying to get everything done so I have the week free when Donut visits. If there's any info people need from me bug Donut and she'll bug me. Somehow that's even faster than PMing me.

i became your assistant?! =O

*sorry for double posting*

Any Canadians here know how the prepaid phone works in Canada? I want to get a prepaid cell for the week.

Can I get it in Canada or just get it here? Verizon charge 50 cent per minute. I can just get a 50$ pre-paid phone........

Please let me know if you know anything.

Thanks,

I might only be there an hour or so. The GF's best friend's b-day is that day and part of us going to canada will be for her b-day.

I'm in for sure for the 21st (and the 23rd).

Donut, should I wear pants?

I am not Donut. I am not even going to be there. But unequivocally the answer is "Yes!"

Btw. I can call Canada phones starting the 19th - 27th, but I still have a US number..... so.......... GIMME UR NUMBA Vector and maybe Tam? Those who I will hang out w/more than twice. =)

I'm soo excited!

I'm of Scottish heritage. There's a good chance I'll wear a kilt. I just need to own a kilt.

So I haven't been paying attention. There are two childsplay prints being shipped to my place. Can I get a quick summary of what they are and why?

Link here. The GWJ community participated in a goodjer fund-raising for the Childsplay charity with some posters Oilypenguin collected for, 7inchsplit designed, and trueheart78 distributed. People had the option of having their orders shipped together and sent to a S&T site if they're going to an S&T to cut costs and raise the level of revelry and wewts.

Edit: One of those prints is mine

EditEdit: DONUT! My cell number is 206-979-3451. Before Certis calls me a crazy lady again for distributing my digits, this phone number is getting the axe on Halloween since I'll be moving up to Canada that day.

Danke! I wanted a reason to tell my roommates what was arriving at the house in my name.

Any room for GWJ community newbs?

I might be free on the 23rd depending on my courseload, but I'd hate to bust into Vector's house and be greeted with angry stares and whispers of "Hey, who invited the fat guy?".
