f0zzyNUE I am terribly sorry, but I don't believe the weather gods are on speaking terms with me at the moment. This is not what I ordered.

Indoor things to do: Art Gallery, Museum of Anthropology (although getting there might get a bit wet, not on a direct bus route), FlyOver Canada IMAX, Vancouver Police Museum (this is one I'd really like to do - never been, many Vancouverites don't even know about it), the majority of Granville Island is covered (food and craft markets), Museum of Vancouver.

I am thinking a bike ride is not in the cards.

For the walking tours, they have been locked in now and are payable in cash. I accept the following currencies:

$33 CAD for both tours, $16.50 for one (gratuity incl)
$25/$12.50 US
€21.50/€10.75

There is still room for extra participants on these.

There's always the Aquarium as well.

Most of it is indoors and, if it's nice at the time, you can get a bit of Stanley Park stroll in too. Serviced by both bus and taxis.

I am now officially in! Many thanks to nomadic.relief for all the hard work. I have updated the wiki (after a few attempts where I screwed it up) and I’m looking forward to meeting you all.

:( Sorry to hear that! Next time. PM'd to sort out flight refund.

I am local but thinking of getting a room at the Wall Centre. Especially If this is going to be a thing. Bear in mind, I used to be a dealer (poker included) in a casino so bring your money. :p So is it game on?

So I wasn't sure I'd be able to make it to this but I have changed my plans to fly out of TYS rather than RDU so I am a definite. However, I cannot sign up for any of the events. Is it still possible I can attend the flight seeing and official DO dinner? It seems impossible to do so on EventBright.

I believe the dinner was sold out awhile back. IIRC there was discussion upthread about how the restaurant limits group sizes. But perhaps you could organize a (separate) small table with the people who want to eat but couldn’t get in the group reservation? I know a few others (like @monitor and @beckoa) would probably join.

That is one 'Do' that is on my sooner-than-bucket list. Anything with beef and EZE can't be all bad.

But first, the soon to be awesome YVR Do!

f0zzyNUE Sep 12, 18 10:36 pm

Unfortunately I can't make it to YVR this weekend due to a work related issue that needs my commitment on Friday and maybe also during the weekend. :(
So my seat for both dinners is available.

I'm sad and sorry - especially as I was talking @nomadic.relief into organizing this DO on a regular base for quite some time ...

nomadic.relief Sep 12, 18 11:38 pm

:(:(:(
I will not be the only to be sad to miss out on seeing you.

And sadly I need to cancel as well. Very disappointed, but life and all that. I'll second a motion for making this an annual event!
