what's with all the sticky's in the 'marmot' forum?
regardless, i'm posting an august 23rd lunch meet between 12 and 1 at 'barb's fish and chips' downtown victoria at the docks (hop, skip and a jump from the empress hotel if i remember correctly). this is the fourth thursday out of five in august (marmots seem to like thursdays). there is no 'rain date'. i'm on a tight schedule. i will be there (maybe even early (can't remember if you have to pay for parking or not)).
how good are the fish and chips? well, this is my final destination and reason for me driving my car across the country. my smartie is easy to spot. it's red and black, has brabus wheels, dropped suspension, and a silver air scoop thingy up front (don't bug me about the fit (it's not my fault)). currently it has a tongue sticking out the back too. i'm easy to spot, i'm the portly fellow sporting a red 'ferrai' hat with the wife who will be rolling her eye's wondering what she's gotten herself into again.

We stick together as Marmot's should
Just lots of things on the go out here.
I will see if I can make it - let us know if there is anything else you would like some info on.
Here is a link for Barb's - http://www.barbsplace.ca/
- they have won several awards - there are lots of really good fish and chip places here so that is a tough thing to pull off.

Yes you do, but it is cheap if I remember correctly.

I will try to make it as well. I live 2 minutes walking distance from Barbs Fish & Chips but I'll be sure to bring my Smartie out for the Meet & Greet.

You can also park out on the road if you can find a spot - that is free.
So I will try to make it - depends on work.

Mile 0 is at the end of Douglas Street - right by Beacon Hill Park - you can't miss it - 'cause if you do you will be going over a sidewalk into the bushes and into the water. There is a sigh there and a monument to Terry Fox. Sort of a little triangular park.
Here are a couple of maps.

i'm packing up too! I'll be on the road tomorrow... but unfortunately I wont be able to make it to this event! I tried to plan things so I could be there, but my sister and brother in law are going to be in vancouver at that time so I am spending time with them.
Sponge - I'll catch ya at an ontario rally sometime!
marmots - I'll be on the island from the 28th to 30th I believe! Maybe I'll see some of you then!

Sorry, Sam and I won't make it after all. See you next time.

Sandy T and I will be there. It's our 22nd wedding anniversary.

I have to bow out - my Brother is dropping in from California.
Sorry about that - hopefully we can catch up with each other another time!

So Aries, Cathy, Mark and Maureen (new members and new smart owners) plus Mike and Sandy had a rendez-vous as planned. We arrived about 15 minutes or so later than the others, at about 12:05. We had a nice plate of fish and chips and had a good chat with Aries about his trans-Canada drive (never again in a smart with sports suspension, he vowed).
Here are some shots:
