VT Meeting in Ottawa - AUGUST??

by europebn Online Now Mar 17, 2003 at 8:16 AM

Hello!!! I know it's early, but thought I'd generate some interest. I'm living in Edinburgh, but most likely will back in Ottawa for the first 2-3 weeks of August. Any interest in having a VT meeting? I don't expect confirmations yet obviously, but would like to see who's interested and if we can manage to make it a big one... If interested, please respond on this forum and/or send me an e-mail. I'll send out updates periodically as the date gets closer, and maybe send out e-mails as well. Hope to hear from you, Cheers, Brandon

    Janika, great, you're on the list. I'll keep everyone posted in the coming weeks. Since there may be a few out of towners, weekends will probably work best, which narrows it down to Aug 9 or 16. No official plans yet, but suggestions are most welcome. Keep posted on this forum, my homepage and my Ottawa pages. I will send out an email soon to all those on the 'interested' list. Cheers, Brandon

    Could you add me and the_girl to the list? We haven't been to a VT meeting before. . .and it's pretty unlikely that we'll make the international California one. :-)

    We were in LA last summer, in June. :) Not goin back again this year. Maybe next year. Is the meeting going to take place in a pub or bar or in a park? I prefer outdoors. How about y'all? I thought Andrew Haden's park or Moonies bay. Janika

    For anyone interested in an earlier Ottawa get-together, KenHuocj is trying to get one going for the end of the Tulip Fest on May 17th-18th. Contact Ken for more info.

    Hi Brandon Either Aug 9 or 16 are fine for me (will be back from Kenya and Toronto by then). Hope everyone enjoyed the amazing weather we had over the end of the Tulip festival! I had a guest in from Toronto and took her to Thousand Islands (finally saw Boldt Castle), Gatineau Park, Rideau Falls, Rockcliffe Park, Byward Market, and the end of the Tulip Festival Cheers Laurie-Ann
