PAX has my brain. I will write some snappy intro later.

Oh, and what's this? A shiny new CALENDAR gifted to the PAX community by the ever wonderful zerzhul? Yes indeed. Do us all a favour: check it out. It makes things a lot easier and it's public so anyone can add an event. :D

Upcoming Events:

None. :(


Want to add something? Just post about it.

Also, if you enjoy hiking, some of us hit some of the local trails throughout the summer. PM me if you're interested.

    Which night market?

  • SumiSumi Registered User regular
    Hmm... Not sure... Maybe the actual Richmond Night Market because it's easier to get to? Though I guess we could try to hit both? I am open to suggestions.

    They're both pretty easy to get to, as one has a complimentary shuttle bus. The newer one does cost $1 for entrance.

    Hey so we are going to postpone the nightmarket because Tr0tsky has an injured knee and can't really walk and considering it's his birthday tomorrow we are going to go for drinks on Friday to celebrate. Location TBA, but I will post when we know.

    Will have to pass on this one. Apparently, I subconciously RSVP'd to something a couple of months back on an event that takes place the same night. Have fun though!

    Sumi, put me down for D&D live this week :)
    Also, a maybe for the renaissance festival :)

  • tr0tskytr0tsky Registered User regular
    So, I think the plan is to go to Central City Brewing this evening for some chilling/drinks. I've been there a couple times and it's decent. Still no replacement for Fogg'n'suds, but we may never find that =(

    Surrey Central skytrain station, say...uh..7? I dunno. I'm not even sure who's interested :P

  • parabolaparabola Registered User regular
    Don't think I can make it out to Surrey today... But I'm down for something pre-protomen it being my birthday and all. Not quite into the sushi idea but w/e, not sure where i'd even want to go, but yay concert.

  • SaldekSaldek Registered User regular
    I'll be getting in to Vancouver around 1140 on Sat. Never been there before; will check out the fb page when i can- it's blocked on the ship's computers. :( Not sure that we have any solid plans for Sunday, so... Sushi!!!! yessssss! I'm up for that. Looking forward to meeting up with everyone in Vancouver!!!!!!!

    what about camping this summer again?

    I heard something about the Camano island site not being available this year for some reason, but I don't really know what's going on with it.

    awww sadface. I have a friend on Whidbey, I wonder if he has enough room for 15 of us ;-)

    I am bored and need things to do. If you have any upcoming events you would like to share, please post and I will happily add it to the OP. :D

    Hurray new thread!
    How about the usual events Sumi?
    Castle Fun Park, Wings, GoKarts, Lazer Pewpew etc.?

    Also I would like to propose: Celebration of Light

    As for RSVPs I would be down for the night market, but I can't make it to anything else so far... my work has me on ad-hoc for about a month.

  • SumiSumi Registered User regular
    I suppose I should put the usual events up there. I will have to ask absinthe about dates for these things, as I forget their usual order.

    Oh, so I guess that next saturday's game thing at my house doesn't warrant an edit to the OP? Sigh! Also, Axe Murderer Rule applies, new people need to be vetted by myself before I'm presented with a (gaggle? flock? herd?) of people I don't know going through my medicine cabinet. I only like trusted friends doing that.

    In Vancouver? Want to meet up and play some Games?

    Since the nightmarket got rained out yesterday, perhaps we can try it again Sunday @ 8? I know a few of you were wanting to go.

    How was night market? Is there lots to buy yet?

  • SumiSumi Registered User regular
    I found the Richmond market kind of small, though I was entertained. I'd like to check out the other.

  • littlehamsterzlittlehamsterz Registered User
    I will go if you guys are planning a trip sometime. Would be fun.

  • TeenychickaTeenychicka Registered User
    The other one is smaller but at least it has taiyaki *pout*

    I guess since no one else has RSVP'd yet, I might as well put you to work and RSVP for all the Regular August events... except FTWings.... going to see The Protomen at the The Biltmore that night.

    On a somewhat unrelated note, I'm still voting to move FTWings to either Monday or Tuesday, since we had alot of people who said they couldn't make it last year because they were heading down to Seattle Wednesday for MMT, PAX Dev or other Pre-PAXyness. :winky:

  • parabolaparabola Registered User regular
    I'm down for the usual... Except the puttputt and the pewpew. Not sure about FTWings, didn't realize Protomen would be playing here before PAX. If you reschedule it I will be there for sure though.

  • faerielaurelynfaerielaurelyn Registered User regular
    I would also vote moving FTWings to Monday since I also will be heading down on Tuesday for PAX.

    Tentative RSVP for August events, depending on budget!

    No, YOU make ME a sandwich!
  • degreesplatinumdegreesplatinum Registered User regular
    Have you guys finalized the plans for the group travel to Seattle (Aug 30)? Is it the Amtrak train again?
