    I’m on Ottawa and have seen some interest from people in Toronto area, Kingston and Montreal (others would of course also be welcome) that we meet up in person somewhere.

    I like to keep it very low profile so that we girls doesn’t get to nervous. I was thinking some place between Toronto and Ottawa where we can meet outdoor for a BBQ and chat. I know – the ballroom dress and stiletto heels may not be suitable for that but it’s just a suggestion and starting more casual may make things easier.

    How about some weekend in July/Aug of 2021 we go out for a weekend getaway and during that week change and meet up somewhere where no one have any friends except people from here at CDH. Maybe go to airbnb and rent a cottage for the weekend…

    So, how many would be interested? Suggestions on places? Format ?

    (Given that this forum posts are on internet I guess final details need to be handled somewhat more private)

      Ok, I have now put in a reservation for a place not to far from sandbanks (about 3h from Ottawa) for Sunday Aug 1. It is an entire cottage in a secluded place (middle of the forest) that has 3 bedrooms but we will only use one (since they charge another $100 for every extra person) but it’s big enough that it should work ok even if we have to be inside due to rain or so (but covid – that’s another story).

      Once my reservation is confirmed I will send out a PM with a few more details to all who have shown interest.

      I’m interested for sure. It would be great if it were somewhere closer to Toronto. The GNO’s used to be held at a friendly hotel in Oakville. Fun!

        Since I’m close to Ottawa and some others are also I feel this first one have to be closer and that’s why I picked sandbanks area since that’s somewhat in between. Civic long weekend in August means some more time to travel and just do a getaway.

        I haven’t booked anything yet but once I do I will send a private msg to people who show interest.

      I would love to go, especially in the Belleville Sandbanks area. Beautiful white sand beaches, cute little downtown core in Belleville and Picton (20 minutes away from Sandbanks) Nice inexpensive hotel in Belleville on the Quinte Bay, one hour from Kingston if people are looking for more nightlife. My wife would love to come as well, I’ve also mentioned it to a friend from another forum who is very interested.

      I have been looking over this and thinking about it a bit. Personally I don’t know if Kelly is ready to go to a public place like Colonial Inn in Gananoque, at least not yet. That makes me going back to my original plan so currently I’m thinking that I will try to find a place to rent somewhere around sandbanks during the first long weekend in August. (Now if some people want to meet up at Colonial Inn then by all means do so, don’t let me not showing up stop you.)

      I did look at some airbnb places in the sandbanks and hope to find a place that is out of sight with a place to have a BBQ gathering outside where me and my wife can spend that weekend. To not make it into a public gathering I ask anyone interested in more details to please send me a private message and I will add keep you informed. Note that a PM doesn’t mean any commitment that “I will come”, only “keep me informed”.

      Since it is some time left and the state of covid changes all the time I will revive this subject closer to the date.
      Until then – keep safe.

      So, finally managed to steal some time to look closer at this.
      Now this is of course all pending on how things go with covid, vaccinationΒ  and all that stuff but I think we now are (sorry for anyone I missed)
      7 Yes, 2 Maybe and 4 depending on distance and/or when.

      Location
      Only suggestion I seen is Colonial Inn in Gananoque and Sandbanks. While I never even heard of the β€œSpring Galas” before I asked google and can see that the spring gala looks interesting but personally I’m not sure I’m ready to let Kelly out that much (and with pictures on internet…) plus that May is way to early to leave my home quarantine.
      As a place, it’s east of Kinston so no issue for Ottawa, Kingston or Quebec but for Toronto and Hamilton it’s a long trip and will definitely require overnight place to stay.
      Did see Rockport, dunno anything about that place and that is even more east.
      Sandbanks area near Belleville, now we talking, at least in regard to distance.
      I would guess it’s more places in between but never been there. Since I aiming for the long weekend I’m thinking it can be a weekend getaway and the meetup is only one part while the rest is just vacation (in drab :)).

      Format
      When I started this topic I didn’t expect that much response (thanks to all who did respond). I was thinking that I just rent an airbnb cottage for me and my wife somewhere out of to much view during civic weekend (aug 1-2) and then privately tell anyone interested where I would have a BBQ going on Saturday or Sunday (pending weather). I was thinking that format since then it’s no issues with renting a hall or such, it’s outside (to consider covid), people coming may be less afraid of showing up, it’s not a whole weekend and so on.
      Now more people are interested and it’s even suggestion of a small hotel to gather in. How many would be interested in meet at Colonial Inn or some other cd friendly place? While Colonial Inn looks nice I guess in that case more people outside us will be around and friendly or not it might be scary to some (including Kelly).

        Hi Kelly, I like Sandbanks, but just because it is a little closer, lol
        I would also have to get overnight accommodation’s, (and I believe my SO would enjoy it also, but I haven’t mentioned it. Would it be weird to have her there?) as either is about a 5 hr drive, for me. So August long weekend sounds wonderful, Either the bbq, or the Inn.
        please keep me on the list
        Hugs, Regi.

        Hi Kelly

        I was thinking in line with your original day trip/bbq idea. I wouldn’t be up for a wknd or stay over but that doesn’t mean I couldn’t just show up for 1 part of a longer event if thats what works best for the group.

        I am definitely down for, a day trip, however an overnight might be a little difficult for child care I can get away with a day but more then that can be an issue, however I am not opposed to driving there and back for a day trip.

        I am involved with the group which goes to the Spring Fling, and there is nothing planned at the moment, as May seems to be too soon for an event like that.

        So I would be willing to go to the Colonial.

      For those that might be on the fence about attending do to nerves or shyness. This could be a wonderful begining for future outings. At least two of the ladies that have expressed interest were amoung those that welcomed me in my furst group meetup in downtown T.O., I was nervous and no vision of beauty but was easily accepted by everyone and had a number of good conversations during that evening. I’m so glad I went and happily call both Amy and Stephanie my friends.

      It may also give you the opportunity to meet our wonderful ambassador, they’re not chosen just for their looks you know. If you’ve ever had a conversation with them, you already know what I mean.

        NervesΒ  are definitely in question for me, But I still wish to go I think it could be great fun I’ve never been out in public during the day, but I think I could manage the anxiety, and get through it. Here’s hoping I can find child care for when this happens.

      Count me in!!!! I know the Colonial Inn in Gananoque has hosted many Expressions “Spring Galas” It is a lovely, safe, large, affordable facility. And it has a fashion boutique off of the lobby!

        There’s a beautiful bicycle path just East of Gananoque on the Thousand islands parkway. A few years ago my wife and I discovered the cute little historic village of Rockport about 25km down the road, definitely worth a visit when you’re in the area. I would certainly be interested in attending, count me in.

      Whata that you say? Something positive and interesting to look forward to? Sounds like a great possibility to me too. I’m 15min from rhe other Great Lake (Erie) but have reason to be in that area more than a few times this year so I can try to make the universes align.

      That sounds like a fun idea, my husband has not yet been outside dressed and I know he would like that as a first time thing. The Sandbanks area near Belleville might be a good spot, its about an hour west of Kingston.

      You could add my name to the mix as well, though I am about an hour West of Hamilton, so it is a long hike for me, and I would be inclined to find overnight lodging somewhere, as it is likely about 4 hrs or so each way for me.

      It wouldn’t have to be an overnighter planned through the bunch, as that might get complicated and too expensive for some.

      Yes, later in the summer would likely be the earliest by the way the things are going with Covid.

      Keep me in the loop though.

      could you make that 6?

      I can make that 60 as long as we can figure out the rest like where to do it and while being 6 vs 60 makes some difference to the format I don’t think we going to be that many. A BBQ and a chat is what I envision somewhere, what do you other girls think?

      So, 5 people (with me) interested, any suggestions on location?

      As for timing, I’m thinking some weekend in August so that the worst of the pandemic restrictions are over. I do wonder if the first long weekend (civic holiday for ontario) would be ok.
