    Default Vancouver Get-together?

    Hey guys, I'm thinking of organizing a Vancouver Area Get together to chat, and check out lights etc.

    Just wanted to see if there was any interest?

    I'd be up for a meet but doesn't look like there's much interest even after 37 views of this thread. Maybe you'll have to PM all the Vancouver area folks because they didn't see this thread. I only accidentally saw this thread while looking at the Newest Threads section at the bottom of the main page.

    This is funny. Gunga manages to organize meets in Ottawa & Toronto but not in his own home town.

    BTW I posted a link from CPFMP Canada Good Deals to here. Hope it helps.

    I'd be willing to meet if time and location fits. I really have nothing to show except a custom half finished bike light I was building. Cant find the time to finish the mounting part as we just had our 1st baby. There goes my free time for a bit. My bike light is a P7 driven by a taskled hipflex powered by external battery packs.
    I have a small lathe and want to make more lights, gotta buy some more emmiters and drivers and find more time!

    I've always looked at flashlights at every store im in and until I found this site I never knew I was a "FLASHAHOLIC"

    Hey guys, I'm back! Had a successful meetup with the folks in Ottawa. Poor weather prevented us from doing outside tests but we all got a nice look at everyones's collection samples.

    I'd still like to meet up.

    tc2468, I'd love to see you bike light setup, sounds very cool.

    Thanks LEDninja.

    Can someone chime in with some names of Vancouver folk?

    I have:

    AvroArrow
    Krazy89
    Marlite
    Zerius (MIA for months)
    jlomein
    van1
    Vancouverite
    Bushman?

    Of these folk, I only see about 3 or 4 people making it...

    Hey! Just saw this in the "CANADA Good Deals" thread...

    I'm over in Victoria right now, but generally back in Van on the weekends. I don't have much to show lights-wise, but it would be fun to meet some of you guys!

    Absolutely,
    Keep me informed.
    Actually I'm on the Cloverdale/Langley area, so count me in.
    Only have a couple of lights ( so far), but who knows what I might have when the day arrives.

    Hmmmm.

    I'm booked all Sat nights for a while...

    If we can't decide on a date, I can certainly set something up for the new year?

    Let's throw a date out there.
    Jan 8th or 9th (friday or saturday).
    Now people chime in if they can make it or not, then try to find a location.
    I am open for midweek if that works better.
    Hopefully my Wee will be in by then, so I will have a couple to bring.

    If you can hold off until Jan. I would be able to bring some of the newer Fenix lights as well!

    My MC10 arrived today! Hopefully I can get a Mag mod or two together in time for January as well...

    I think either the 8th or 9th would work, but I'll check on that.

    Wow, that took awhile. I got my TK30 almost 2 weeks ago! I guess first prize comes with faster shipping, LOL.

    Anytime in January is good for me. Are we thinking of meeting in Vancouver or would there be a more convenient location somewhere else in the lower mainland? Just wondering what everyone's thoughts are? I'm willing to drive anywhere, as I really want to see this meet happen. Just to be around other flashaholics.......to know I'm not alone, it's like a support group.

    I've never been to a "flashlight GTG", but have been to a few watch GTG's.
    The Watch ones are usually at a reasonably priced restaurant or pub with a separate room.
    I assume dimly lit place would work, but we might disrupt the place if we fire them all up at once

    Haha, perhaps! Though to be fair, I also ordered some small items from FenixOutfitters that they nicely shipped along with my MC10 to save me the shipping costs; good service and a free light is hard to beat!

    I've gotta check out your TK30, I don't have any "big guns" yet.

    Frankly, if the golf course (driving range) option mentioned earlier is a possibility, then I think that could be better. Having food available is nice, but the outside setting would be much better suited to playing with the lights... Good suggestions though!

    If we can keep this near West/North Van or Burnaby and early evening I should be able to make it.
    I can bring all the Fenix lights, should have some new stuff this week
