    Chatting in the campout forum I offered to get together with Mark and Robyn and chat about what to expect, gear, and all that fun stuff. At last night SISKA's meeting I had a request to join this social gathering. I thought other people might also want to 'meet and greet' before heading out to an island to meet a bunch of total strangers (novel concept).

    So meet up and kayak chat anyone?

    I propose meeting at Moon Under Water Brewpub. We could have some burgers & beers, or cokes. :mrgreen:
    http://www.moonunderwater.ca/ This is a nice quiet pub with a focus on social.

    The date I propose is Wednesday February 15 at 6pm. Let me know if this works for you. I am flexible with dates/times, but wanted to try and make this easy for everyone. :clap: I welcome everyone to this gathering.


    I feel like I need to add a disclaimer here. WCP is a forum that paddlers use to question each other, show-off amazing projects, and communicate. The campout weekend is not a 'guided' event in any way, shape, or form. The expectation is that people are self-sufficient and prepared to paddle and camp using their own skills of judgement, camp craft, seamanship and navigation. In essence, the forum just provides a way for us to meet up at the same place, around the same time. Only you can decide whether you have the requisite skills and knowledge to attend the campout weekend. :D

    If it was in Vancouver or the Lower Mainland I would be able to go, but I can't justify a ferry trip for a gathering.

    Oh good point, this event is in Victoria, BC. :mrgreen: You could always organize a similar event on the East side of the Salish Sea Alana. :wink:

    Would anyone be interested if I did organize a gathering? I'm happy to help and talk about gear etc. I haven't been to Portland Island before though, so would someone else familiar with the area be interested in coming to?

    Darn.... I have to fly the blimp at the Royals game that night. :idea: I'll see if I can get one of the other pilots to take the sticks for me so that we can attend.
