Title: Edmonton Monthly Gathering
Post by: binch on February 13, 2015, 11:14 PM
NOTICE OF CHANGE TO OUR NEW GATHERING PLACE IN EDMONTON.....

Greetings all,

We are going to try a different location for the next Edmonton area ALRE GATHERING:

Superior Fish & Chips
6 Superior St,
Devon, AB
T9G 1E8

6pm until 8pm
 https://www.facebook.com/superiorfishandchips/

They are the closest thing to a real "chippy" I've found in the Edmonton area and the selection is GREAT!

I know this is a bit out of the way but I think it's a great spot for a bite to eat and there's an Ice cream shop across the road for desert ;-)



For Sept 7th We will NOT be at the

Golden Bird Restaurant
10542 97 St NW,
Edmonton, AB
T5H 2L2

https://goo.gl/maps/A62DVuhELmkSEfLGA

(great vietnamese food, with parking in front, on 97 street, or in the back.)

We will meet between 6pm and 9pm .   Just let them know you're with the "land rover club"

Happy Canada Day

Hey Bill....  IIRC, you were saying the 7 pm is later than when most people show up.  Can you clarify and I will update the first post.

Hi John,

A lot of people show up for 630pm, or even earlier, to grab tables, as it's now pool league night too.   They didn't appreciate us dripping dirty motor oil over our turf so we try to book 4 tables and get some butts in them early.    But we say 7pm officially on the notice so that people have a chance to get home and visit with their families.   My thinking was...I didn't want any of the newbies thinking they didn't have time to get home and then there too.   

Does that sound rational????  ahahhahahhahahah

Is there a similar group that meets in Calgary?

There are no regular meetings, but if someone wants to start one up, I'm sure it would be popular.  There are just as many members in Calgary as Edmonton.  Traditionally, we have had more wrenching sessions and off road trips in Calgary.

The secret is to find a pub or licensed restaurant where a group of 15 to 30 people can drop in once a month, where the noise level isn't so loud and conducive to good conversation.   "If you build it they will come" ;)

Great turn out yesterday. Three new visitors. A couple from Vega area. Heavy involvement in Discovery vehicles. Six. So us at the British Field Meet.
The other fellow is Jason's neighbor. Looking at getting a project car.
It was a good night.

Good day fellows,

I would like to thank all those who have participated in the process to select a new club meeting place.  In total, we had around 14 participants in the voting. The final selection was based on voting results, children access, gluten free de-alcoholized beer options, The central location was also considered in the final selection. Off course, good drink and menu options were also considered.

I am pleased to announce that our new location is :

Beer Revolution:
11736 104 Ave NW, Edmonton,
http://beerrevolution.com/edmonton/
Phone:(780) 430-4677

I will be making the reservation on Monday for a group of 20 persons. Look forward to seeing the Edmonton crowd on Wednesday.

Kindly,


Emad El-Zein

Hey Gang
The YESS is in desperate need for towels at the shelter. I have bought some and hope that
everyone coming to the meeting on Wednesday can bring some as well. I will deliver them on Thursday after work.  Help a great cause.  Let's fill the Disco.  I'm sure they would be happy to take any food donations you want to make as well. ;)

Thanks
David

WE'VE  MOVED  AGAIN.......to our new haunt ;)

The Edmonton gang has moved one more (and hopefully last time) to....

Rosario's Pub:
11715C - 108 Ave, NW, Edmonton,
http://rosariospub.ca/
Phone: (780) 447-4727


https://www.google.com/maps/@53.5534932,-113.5243068,3a,60y,193.36h,88.41t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1soKDR3f9swP9udS1XKNZNdA!2e0!7i13312!8i6656

This is a good local community pub that welcomes families.   Food is good, prices are reasonable and they have lots of space to accommodate us on the first Wednesday of each month ;D

I look forward to seeing your smiling faces there (or at least talking about you while you're not...) ::)

cheers, Bill

Title: Re: Edmonton Monthly Gathering
Post by: rutmaster on June 23, 2018, 05:52 PM
Hopefully this is the last move, if not maybe we should consider approaching one of the Legions (there was some discussion about this at the ABFM)
Title: Re: Edmonton Monthly Gathering
Post by: binch on March 22, 2020, 09:55 PM
DUE TO THE CORONA VIRUS - EDMONTON AREA GATHERINGS ARE CANCELLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.




We will play it by ear as to when we can get together again.   In the meantime....I invite everyone to have fun on our forum  ;)

cheers, the ALRE EXECUTIVE
Title: Re: Edmonton Monthly Gathering
Post by: B-Red on March 28, 2020, 09:17 AM
Good day fellows. I will be emailing the ALRE list a virtual link for a video conference meeting this Wednesday. Figured we can always catch up in virtual space if we can’t meet in person.
Private message me with your email if you are not on the ALRE email list.
Cheers. Emad
Title: Re: Edmonton Monthly Gathering
Post by: binch on April 01, 2020, 09:45 PM
Well folks, I popped in to the video "Gathering" this evening and I have to say it was pretty good!   I could hear everyone and I could see everyone....but I don't have a camera and I don't have a mic.  LOL.    But there was a chat window in the lower corner that I was able to dialogue with the 4 other people that made it out there.   Emad, Christian, Mike and John O.    Only thing missing was my plate of pasta and a mug of something cold.

It was pretty good too, being able to listen to different conversations as well.   Now it wasn't the same as having the whole gang there...but it was a good runner up, and I'm hoping we can see more folk out at the next one. 

I popped in the Calgary and Med Hat Video confernces too...but sadly I didn't see anyone there.

Stay safe out there kids...... ;)
Title: Re: Edmonton Monthly Gathering
Post by: Red90 on April 02, 2020, 07:58 AM
What was the purpose of separate conferences? I assumed there was just one.
Title: Re: Edmonton Monthly Gathering
Post by: B-Red on April 02, 2020, 10:34 AM
I created the three rooms in case we had a large number. Each room can comfortably support 25 persons. However, spreading 25 over three rooms gives participants more chance and time to talk.
The google hangout platform is free with no time limit.
Zoom is free up to 40 minute time. After that they charge.
Cheers. Emad
Title: Re: Edmonton Monthly Gathering
Post by: binch on April 02, 2020, 05:47 PM
Maybe we should just try one room to start and see how that pans out.   It would be nice to see folks from all over our club in one room.   If it does start to get busy maybe we can open a second room there ;)

One good thing about this 'meeting room' set up.    It will prepare me for serious offroading in a new defender.   I'll stay at home and drive the vehicle from my phone all the while participating in an online gathering, from the comfort of my lazy-Boy.    I won't have to get dirty at all then!    LOL

Post by: Red90 on April 02, 2020, 05:54 PM
Bill will need to buy speakers and a mic before next month.
Title: Re: Edmonton Monthly Gathering
Post by: binch on April 02, 2020, 10:31 PM
I can hear just fine.   And I'm working on the camera so maybe consider it a blessing that I haven't got a mic hahahahhahahahhahha ;D

are you doing the virtual gathering again for May?

Title: Re: Edmonton Monthly Gathering
Post by: B-Red on May 02, 2020, 05:31 AM
Good day fellows. I will be sending the ZOOM conference invite today to the club email list. If you don’t receive club email, pM me here and I will give you the link.
I avoid posting links on public forums due to few intruders incidents with other meetings.

ZOOM is a good tool, Hick, our Parliament is using it to run the country. Look how that is working out ;-)

Hi Gang!  We're going Nomad..... ;)

Looks like we still haven’t found a new home for our monthly ‘Gathering’ for the edmonton area, so let’s go nomadic for the time being until we find a new home for our ‘Gathering’.     For the upcoming ‘Gathering’ on Monday, Dec 1, 2021 I’d like to suggest the:

Golden Bird Restaurant
10542 97 St NW,
Edmonton, AB
T5H 2L2

(great vietnamese food, with parking in front, on 97 street, or in the back.)

It sounds like their are a lot of projects going on right now and I’m looking forward to hearing about them.   At our last gathering at the old Rosies there was talk of an ALRE Club xmas dinner.   We’ll have to nail that down so we can plot our demise Winking smile

So.....who’s going to join me at the Bird on wednesday then?????  The food is great and if you have room left you can try their avocado milkshake (don’t knock it ‘til you try it)

cheers, Bill
Title: Re: Edmonton Monthly Gathering
Post by: binch on January 31, 2022, 07:42 PM
It's that time again....

Now that you all have you tans back from that warm spell it looks like a couple days of normal winter and then back into warm weather again.....

But we’re coming up to the first wednesday of the month and it’s time for our gathering again.
 
And it will be at the Golden Bird again, on Wednesday March 02, 2022.  6pm  to 9pm

Golden Bird Restaurant
10542 97 St NW,
Edmonton, AB
T5H 2L2

Lots of parking on the road out front on 97 street, or in the back.)

I’d like to hear from folks, to find out what you’ve all been up to.   So.....who’s going to join me?  Let me know so I can give them a ‘heads up’ and book some space.

cheers, Bill

We had a great turn out tonite!!!    About 14 people in all give or take.   But we had a good chat about all things land rover.    MF has offered to host the trip planning meeting out at her place (details TBA).   So start thinking of trips, events, activities, etc that our members and their families can get involved with.

cheers, Bill

I’m thinking about it for sure. Here’s hoping I don’t forget, get distracted, have a child emergency or some other event to prevent me from coming.

Looks like Superior Fish n Chips in Devon was a BIG hit!!    Even had folks coming from the far NE of Edmonton.   The only was bit astounded by all the bodies that showed up as they are a pretty quiet shop.  The owner was one of the original owner of Brits F&C back when it first started up and he's still making them that way.   But his menu would make anyone from the far side of the pond proud.
