    Past the halfway mark of August, does anyone want to suggest a date? Otherwise I'll just set an arbitrary date...

    It's a lot more usful and balanced with the neutral XP-G in it...

    The 23rd should work for me!

    As for location, I'm pretty mobile within the greater Vancouver area. If spending time outdoors is a priority then we need to be near a park. North Van has a good selection of parks including Princess Park in Lynn Valley and the lower trails on Mt. Fromme. I'm happy to go elsewhere though if someone knows a different area that would work.

    Nice, the RRT-0 is a good looking light. Looking forward to seeing that one. If we go outdoors, I'll see about bringing my "big guns"... I've got at least a couple larger incans and an HID that might be of interest to some.

    I should have added I can't make the 23. It's our 25th anniversary. I think it would also be my LAST if I bailed on her for a GTG.
    I was just assuming a weekend GTG.

    I'll double check on the 26th, but it should work. What time would be good? If we start at 8 or 8:30 then it would probably be decently dark by the time we want to head outdoors to play. Does that sound about right to you guys?

    That works for me.
    Now for a location?
    Just rode past Derby Reach. The park gates close at 10pm, but there is easy parking along the road if this is the venue. Only issue is a bit of a drive from a possible fast food place or pub for the initial GTG portion.

    I am in the Surrey/Langley area .

    I'll be coming from North Burnaby and can make it to wherever it is at on the 26th. If the chosen location is east of Burnaby then 8 or 8:30 is good because then I can avoid rush hour traffic.

    It would be a bit of a drive for me, but if that ends up being a good location for everyone else I could probably manage it. Where would the closest suitable place for the initial portion be?

    Glad to hear the timing works! Let's get some more input on location and then decide on that portion of things.

    Sounds like we should also have j-dude coming, so that will make 5 of us based on the posts so far.

    I just found out that one of the girls I worked with in Alaska is in Vancouver and I'm supposed to come see her on my way back north, so hopefully we can have another MiNi GTG at that time.

    I don't know anything about Vancouver, so I'll be relying on you guys to come up with a good place again.

    I am not sure where everyone is coming from, but near the Guildford Mall ( closer to the freeway, more meeting places), is Green Timbers Park. Again this is dark, easy access and a short walk from a Boston Pizza.
    I am open for suggestions too.

    I don't know many places North/West of the Fraser.

    Unless you're from Sibbald or Oyen you might want to make the drive!

    Awesome! Does the 26th work for you? And how far are you willing to go? Sounds like the furthest away from Vancouver it would be is Langley, but it could be closer. Feel free to suggest a location, if you'd like.

    The closer you get to the city the more light we will be dealing with?

    I think any park will be dark enough to avoid city lights. Langley is a bit far but if it is a must then I guess I could make it there.. I am available any day. I think we should choose a park, then see if there are any places open around that park that we could meet up.

    I sure wouldn't mind that! Burnaby seems to be a decent middle ground if we can pick a place there.

    Burnaby lake and Burnaby Mt. were two that came to mind and I'm sure Queen E and Central park could be good too, but I don't know what is near there for places to meet... anyone more familiar with Burnaby want to chime in?

    I can make the 26th also
    As far as location goes, I wouldn't mind staying in the GVRD
    I'm in PoCo, so Burnaby is definately better than Queen E
    Theres a couple of places in Port Moody...
    Barnet beach or Rocky point, but theres not really a meeting place nearby
    In any case I would be happy with the general concensus...

    Looking forward to seeing some neat stuff next week

    BBY mountain, (near Horizons diner) would be good......big grassy fields, darkness, etc...

    if people bring food to BBQ, i will bring my Lodge cast iron grill, a bag of lump charcoal, some mesquite chips........mmmmm flashlights and BBQ!

    any night works fine for me, i can always phone in sick to work the next day.....

    Ooops, I forgot to mention that I did PM everyone on my little list. They all got a PM with a link to this thread. I guess most people aren't used to getting PMs! It's easy enough to forget to check them.

    PoCo would work for me too... I just don't know Poco or Burnaby well enough to make recommendations.

    ... and not to worry! Sounds like there's a good chance of another CPF meet in September and there will be more to come in the future too.

    Hey guys, sorry for the late reply, but I've been out of town for the last month. I should be good to go for thurs. 26. It'll be great to see some of you again. Unfortunately I have no new lights since the last meet, but I'll bring what I got. Still waiting to see what sst-90 offerings are coming out. Anybody have one to bring to the meet?
    "Launch Mini", you said you'll be coming? We met at the last meet in North Van, I'm the other watch guy, and I'm in White Rock and wondering if you'd be interested in carpooling to the gtg. Now if only we knew where we are going, LOL.
