Recent lack of Dos

Is anyone else somewhat saddened by the lack of Dos recently? I know that our dearly departed ExtremelyEnragedFlightlessAntarcticBird was often the driving force for the large number of Dos that we used to have, but I think the last one we had was the December YYZ one, and no @Dorian west coast Do since last May...

I do plan to host the 3rd annual burgers and Scotch do in YYC in September again, but that seems like a long way off.

If anyone is interested, I could put together a casual drinks-on-patio after-work do in late June, and I'd certainly be interested in travelling to a Do or two (schedule permitting).

Thoughts?

I won't get in to why I've been absent from FT, but I know some could easily guess.

If there is enough interest, I could host something in Van.

There was a fairly public one in April that 15 of us attended.

But yes, I'm always game for more.

I see in-flight Dos as a very different beast from the on-the-ground Dos. Less convenient for most people, participation limited by the number of available J seats, etc... I'm thinking of the typical restaurant/bar type events we've mainly had in the past.

Iím up for anything relatively local to the center of the universe

But I do already have plans the last weekend of June as I expect many will.

I didn't necessarily have a particular date in mind, was just throwing it out there hoping to spark something. Although the burger and Scotch YYC do will probably be the 8th or 15th of September. But I'll post a thread when the timing is right.

Not as grear as the way the IBB software interacts with Gboard's auto-correct, it seems!

Oh yeah and that was a good one too. We had people from other countries and other provinces.

I think Adam meant "why have there been no dos that were convenient to me"

I'm happy to go anywhere in North America for a Saturday night if anyone wants to arrange anything, but it's hard for me to arrange much since no one lives in SFO

Was there? The first few months of the year, I was out of the country more than I was in it and wasn't on FT much.
