There's even a whole new vernacular to be learned for all you FOTSGs out there.

When I am sufficiently confident I can pull off another proper multiday Do I will definitely announce in this forum. (Likely sometime 2020, but not until at least April.)

*FOTSG = flies once to see grandma, used for anyone who's kinda clueless.
Sounds like the AC folks could learn from the ANC crew. An ongoing meetup thread in community buzz with links to the discussion in the AC forum may be the way to go. Believe the DC happy hour thread and maybe others that have recurrent meetups do similarly

Look forward to the next YVR gathering!

This is Vancouver, any date that isn't postponed at least fourteen times just isn't... "us".

“postponed” or merely changed (as in, could move earlier)?

Agree on both points.

The thread did have some epic posts! But a lack of food imagery.
