Sorry I didn't make it or reply. Last minute issues with my husband injuring himself and me having to help him out, so it completely went out of my head! Hopefully next time!

It was great to see TATINE's blog and picture of the successful meeting. I helped to organize it but last minute out of town company arrived and couldn't attend.

Glad to see the turn out was still great!

Hi Chaley3,
I will have tea, coffee, ice water and fruit available.
If you would like to add something, that would be great, but it is not necessary.
Looking forward to meeting you.

Hi Mikikitti,
I live in the Westboro area of the city.
The meeting can go as late as 9:30 if that is what is in the moment. Anyone can leave or arrive when they need to...it isn't anything foral, there are no minutes being taken emoticon just a good old fashion natter fest!
Hope you can make it!

TATINE can answer you on the area of town. As for duration - it all depends - but an hour for sure I imagine (so say 7 to 8 or 8:30 max)...

I might actually be able to attend this one! I just have to ask 2 questions: what part of the city, and about how long are the gatherings typically. I live all the way out in Maxville so timing and distance are factors. I work in Gloucester, so I'll be in town already, I just have to think about going home after!

In response to Chaley3, there is unfortunately no A/C in the room that we will be meeting in emoticon
Lots of windows though and I could bring fans in if need be.
Looking forward to meeting everyone.
I will have tea (herbal and regular) and coffee, as well as plenty of ice water and fruit available.
Also if anyone has any good reads to pass along, that may be interesting as well.
See you soon! emoticon

I logged into SparkPeople today for the first time in a long while, thinking I MUST get back to regular Sparking. This meetup is a great motivator! I will plan to attend, if I may?
Thanks, organizers!!!

So I'm thinking the 15th is the date we'll go with (as I have a SP Friend coming in from Toronto on the 11th - we're meeting in person for the first time).

I see some people posted about doing a clothing swap while we're there so that's great for those who are interested in participating.

I will write down a list of those who confirm they are coming and then e-mail you the address when we get closer to the event. Please re-confirm if you are able to come on August 15th at 7:00PM.

Thanks!

If some people would like to bring clothes along to exchange that is fine with me. I do have a winter coat that I have never worn and that will probably take me 2 years to fit into and by then I would like a different model.
Really looking forward to meeting everyone! emoticon

I don't mind having a couple of things in my car for if someone the right size wants to check them out. Motivation to go through the drawers/closet again. I expect I have a winter coat that is too big now. I would not want to bring them in to the house though... it takes up a lot of time and space. However I am sure I can eyeball a person and think "ah... I know just the right thing for you..."

I have joy in my soul and joy in my step. Walk with me! Justyna

I'm definitely interested! It would be nice to do a clothing swap as well -- perhaps we can see at the in-person meet if anyone is interested.

I had to miss the last in-person meeting, so I will definitely attend this one, on whichever date is chosen. Looking forward to it!

For me, I could go during the day, not in the evening. For this reason, I would prefer the Saturday potluck. Tatine mentions that she is not very mobile, I am wondering whether her house is wheelchair-accessible, so that I could use my scooter?(It is difficult for me to stand for longer than 3 or 5 minutes at a time.)

SP Ottawa member TATINE has proposed a meeting/gathering and I'm sending out this post/thread to see if anyone is interested. If you are, please respond to the post and we'll follow-up with more details once we finalize a date and time.

Here's TATINE's post:

Hi there,
I was at the meeting at Andrew Hayden park and it was a lot of fun getting to know people and hearing of their success and some failures and what has kept them motivated.
It was also great that we had a potluck and could share different food alternatives and ideas.
I am not very mobile and can't go for walks or runs. I was wondering if anyone would be interested in meeting at my home (westboro area) to discuss fitness and exercises...and maybe even do some together. A pot luck would be a great idea as well. A potential weekly weigh-in could be dicussed at that time.
Let me know if anyone is interested. At the very least it would be nice to get together in person again to just chat and tell our stories.
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
Proposed dates:

Saturday August 11 at 11am for pot luck lunch (she has a nice back deck with plenty of seating and indoors if weather is not good).
OR
Wednesday August 15th at 7:00pm (for chat and tea/coffee)

Ideas for exchange...
* Discuss our journeys
* Possibly setup some regular meeting format and weigh in
* Exchange ideas/tips - motivational tips (what works, what hasn't, challenges and how you overcame them)

So who's interested?? Please reply to the thread and we'll go from there!

It's been a long time since we got together and I agree, for sure it would be good to re-connect in person for those who have met before and for those who have not yet had an opportunity to connect in person with local SP members!

I know I've created many great friendships from them!!
