Hey Erin! Thanks for creating a Surrey/White Rock group.
I grew up in Surrey (went to elementary/high school here), but lived in Vancouver to go to UBC for the past six years. However, as of September, I've moved back to live with my mom to save money...and it's sort of been soul-sucking being back here. I miss everything in Vancouver, including CS community that is there...so I'm totally gungho to try and organise things here :)

I agree with Krista that Central City Brew Pub is a decent place to hang out. I also enjoy going to the Wings on King George and 72nd for hockey games and cheap-ish beer.

I don't actually know what fun things there are to do in Surrey, or where the 'cool' hangouts are since I have lived in Vancouver for my 'adult' years, but I'm sure there are some around!

Ill try to brainstorm some :)

Born and raised in Surrey.. Lived in Berlin for awhile where the CS community is crazy active! Literally meetings once a week where over 100 people come with tons of activites every day. Hosted lots/surfed lots etc etc Been trying to go out to some Vancouver events (went to some meetings and Craigs BBQ in June/met up with sme travelers) but often I just cant be bothered to go all the way downtown with my busy schedule/laziness lol! I am missing CS people a lot!!! I live in Fleetwood near Fraser Highway and 168th but I have a car to get around so going to the Wings in Newton would be cool or anywhere else..!

We could also organize some dinner nights.. I have been craving Indian lately and there are some good Indian restaurants here..Mahek is great: http://www.dinehere.ca/restaurant.asp?r=1310

I am really busy in the next month with exams/essays but would love to meet up one night for a couple hours or so :)!

Erin: yay to a fellow hockey fan! Canucks are playing four more games on the road. Three of them are early starts (5:30/4:30), so that probably won't work for getting together at Wings since I assume you probably work or go to school during the day! However, there's Saturday the 14th, Friday the 20th, Sun the 22nd, Thurs the 26th... the list goes on. I'm sure we can get something organised!

Krista: I love indian food (and food in general) so I would totally be down with that! Plus, Mahek is quite close to my place which is awesome because I don't have a car and need to take transit everywhere (and transit in Surrey isn't the greatest!).

Anyway ladies (and gents), keep me posted on what works for you. I have a fairly free schedule :)

Hey Everyone,

I've lived in Surrey for a more than a year now and I would love to be involved and get this group active. I live by 72nd and Scotroad but I have a car so I can drive any place you guys choose.

I don't really hang out a lot here in Surrey unfortunately so I'm not really sure where the cool spots are. I tend to go to Van. when partying with friends. I've also been to some Vancouver CS events and met some really cool friends.

I love the idea of hockey and Indian food. Plus, Wings is really close to my place so that'll work for me.

Btw, I go to school during the week and with exams coming up, I know I'll be busy but I know I'll need a break here and there to keep me sane :) so I'll definitely try to make it. Keep me posted.

Thanks.

there are lots of things we can do :

hockey games ---> must be 20-30 pubs we can try :) ( i also have my own keg at home for sporting events)

hiking --> tons of parks and trails on this side of the water

visit heritage sites and find about the local history ( been in surrey for 15 years and have never bothered)

go to the ymca to play volleyball or whatever sports activities that they have

i believe there is a paint ball somewhere out here now in surrey

this are just some ideas that popped into my head while responding

hope to see some of you soon

troy
