YVR 2020 Spring F’ing Epic Do

Here we go, let’s do this. YVR and a new decade!

Back and ready to host (as I promised after ‘some’ beverages).

Let’s get going on date suggestions for March/April.

As always, unique swag for all attendees!

Nice!

I'm thinking about taking most of March to do an RTW, and going to Bahamas for Easter, so how about after Easter?

Ha! As I don’t know you I’ll take this at face value.

Others might say my enthusiasm is toxic!

That being said, YVR DO’s are always fun and often bizarrely interesting. Signature though.... you leave hungover with with random souvenirs!

@Dorian - I'm f'ing in.

Sorry I didn't get a chance to introduce myself at the last Vancouver Do. Too busy drinking Scotch with Adam I suspect. Next time for sure. First round at the Keefer is one me.

All I need to do now is survive the next few days of Arctic weather. I shoulda stayed in f'ing YUL.

I vote that DOs are labeled not by season but by customary weather: at least for Canada

YVR warm weather DO
is better than YVR spring, fall, or winter DO with snow
