A two-part event; come to either or both!

Ides. March. Beware.

It's been a while, so what say you, Toronto-and-area MeFites, to a meetup? Say late-afternoonish (3:00 or 4:00) on the Ides-of-March-adjacent Saturday, March 16? As is the custom, we usually manage to carry on well into the evening, so plenty of latitude for folks to drop in as they can. Proposing the habitual venue of the Jason George (100 Front Street East), since they seem to have been able to accommodate us as a group with no hassle in the past, and it's quiet enough for folks to carry on conversation. Will see what the response is like over the next week or so and confirm the details at that point.

Spring 2019 OR-WA Regional Canpout CANCELED

After researching further I've decided that this isn't a workable plan at this point - (a) June in the Olympic peninsula part of the world is colder and a lot wetter than I realized; and (b) July or August seems to be the best bet weather-wise, but ALL campsites at all the campgrounds I looked into are already booked for ALL those weekends. I'll try this again next year, but start the planning a couple months earlier. Sorry, everyone!
