Anyone interested having a big UBC couch surfer get together?

I was talking to Eric Abbot and he suggested having big get together where we could all get coffee. I was wondering if anyone was interested and when they might be free. I will be in Vancouver from Jan 26 to Feb. 1

Maybe Jan 28th after 5:30 pm at Koerner's pub as usual?

I will definitely try to be there!

I'll be there, too!

I'd be in for meeting at Koerner's, and Jan 28 works for me. Orion, you mentioned going for coffee... Koerner's is a pub, so they have some really good beer and even some food earlier in the evening, but no coffee (although I'm sure you can bring your own from somewhere else). Just an FYI.

And drink it quick!

I was wondering if anyone might be able to host me one night between the 27 and the 29. All I would need is some floor space for a sleeping bag.

I know that many of you are probably busy with school, so if you cant host me dont worry.

That day I am taking a tour of the campus, its like from 1 to 3pm. I was wondering if anyone wanted to hang out on campus before of after that.

It will be nice to see some new faces at the UBC meet up! I unfortunately can only be there for about an hour.

Posted January 28th, 2009 - 5:36 am by from Vancouver, Canada (Permalink)
Sorry guys, guess I have to skip this one. So wanting to see these many new faces in UBC, but a friend just called me to go to the Canucks game tomorrow night. (I can't say no to this, if you know me... :p)

Have a great time, you all! And we should make this more often. Biweekly? Maybe I'll start the next one. :)

I will be a little late to the meeting because I need to get some more work done before I start drinking. I'll probably get there around 6:30 or 7?

See you then,

i'm new to this whole couch-surfing thing

Hi Marieke,

There will definitely be more meet ups to come. We all enjoyed last week's quite a bit so I think there was a general consensus to have these UBC meet ups biweekly. So that would mean our next meet would be on Feb 12th.

I will post something closer to the date.

dont' you guys meet on wednesdays? that's feb 11

Posted February 2nd, 2009 - 5:02 am by from Vancouver, Canada (Permalink)
I don't think we ever really had a set day of the week that we meet. Sometimes we'd meet Tuesdays, other times Wednesdays or Thursdays.

There's room for discussion. I guess I prefer Thursday better than Wednesday. Any thoughts? What's better, Feb 11 or 12th?
(I personally won't make it Feb 11 because it's my grandmother's birthday).

hi

any chance it could be on friday?
i have midterms on wednesday, thursday & friday.. [you have got to love UBC-organisation sometimes :D] so thursday evening would be kind of difficult..

marieke

[o god, just realised it will be a 'friday the 13th'.. - not that i'm superstitious, but might not be a good day for a midterm..]

Posted February 3rd, 2009 - 4:12 am by from Vancouver, Canada (Permalink)
I would prefer Thursday over Friday (I'm getting a non-CS guest on Friday) and I think that most people usually have other Friday night plans.

I don't think I can make it this week (going out for my birthday Wednesday and a movie date Thursday), but am keen as mustard for the meet-up after that.

I'll try to make it out, but I got a project due the next day so hopefully I can make it.
