    Sounds like fun

    Although my home group is BRMR I am usually on the island in the summer and would love to join in on a meeting. I might soon be an owner at Pacific Shores for July 22-29. So summer time is my vote-majority rules though:D

    yes, we'd be interested
    home by April too
    let us know
    mid island would be the best - and mid island perhaps could be considered to be north of Nanaimo. (ya, I know)
    till then enjoy :hi:

    My holiday booked.

    My DH and I will be on the island from July 9-19. Would love to join a group for supper around then. We are staying near Ladysmith for most of the time.

    Got an idea for location

    Have all of you heard about the Crow and Gate pub on Yellowpoint Road. The location is sort of central and if we pick a beautiful day the sitting area outside is wonderful for a relaxing day. We have not been there for a few years but some Brit friends we sent there this summer really liked it so it should still be good.

    I just had a recommendation from a Cedar resident for this pub on Friday.

    We are in town (Nanoose Bay) July 9 & 10 (probably leaving for Calgary on July 11 for #1 son's wedding July 13). I think we are getting close to picking a day and location!

    I nominate Eal

    I was at a very nice dinner in Calgary hosted by Eal a few years ago. My Dh still raves about the great dinner and good company. He usually cringes when I tell him we are going out with people I mostly know ex. other teachers:D But he is looking forward to this one.
    Here we go. Motion: I hereby nominate Eal to get a Tug together at a time and location which serves her the best. (hopefully around the 9-19:whoopie: ) All in favor? 1 yes (me:rolleyes: ) Any others?

    Crow and Gate pub

    If you google this place (the one on Yellowpoint road near Cedar) you will find they have a good site with menu and pictures. The yard outside is lovely and a beautiful place to gather. It is usually crowded by late supper but people are always coming and going so should not be a problem for an early dinner or late lunch. But there are LOTS of good restaurants around, just I don't live in the area so only know of a few.
    Pacific Shores also has a beautiful restaurant and since Eal is a member perhaps she could speak to this place. I am sure us Tuggers could even go to a timeshare presentation while we are there:eek: Just kidding...:whoopie:

    Not fair to Eal

    Ok. I;m sorry. Blame it on all the Xmas choc I ate. It is unfair to put the burden on Eal. If she cannot do it then I will be glad to pick a place and time and do some calling around. I love restaurants but I only know those two. They are both good though. Eal, your call....:whoopie:

    The Crow & Gate has great food and old world atmosphere but it would be hard to mingle unless you could snare the long table next to the fireplace. This table would hold 10 -12 at most and this is a very busy pub. Pacific Shores is nice but again you would need a separate dining area depending upon the size of the group.

    Old City Station pub in Nanaimo has excellent food and ample room for small parties. Shady Waterfront Restaurant in Qualicum, Dingy Dock floating pub, Grand Hotel and Milano's are some other choices.

    I think using a restaurant that will take reservations is our best bet. I am happy to book a place when we have settle on a day and time. Personally I like the Bayside Bistro in Parksville...

    OK everybody, here is a tentative plan. How about we meet at 7 pm on Monday July 9 at Asteras Greek Taverna in downtown Nanaimo, 347 Wesley Street (#2 on tripadvisor). We have been there before with a large group and it worked very well, and the food is great. I will make a reservation for 12 (closer to the time) or more people if we generate more interest between now and then.

    Spirits, looking forward to seeing you again. Sorry I can't do a dinner any later during your Island visit, but of course the only time I am away this summer is when you will be here!

    Here is my current list of attendees:

    Let me know if this will work for everyone. Looking forward to it!

    Rats! We love Vancouver Island, and I was about to join the group when I realized we'll be on the Central Coast of CA from 6/30-7/7. That would be cutting it pretty close.

    I hope you all have a great time. Jean

    Thanks Jean. We are at Channel Island Shores right now, heading to Avila Beach next week. We are having beautiful weather - we went to Ventura Harbour to see the tall ships today.

    Sounds wonderful. We love Avila Beach, too, but haven't been back there in awhile. Last time, Diamond had just acquired it, and we had a frustrating experience trying to use the "free days" for sitting through the presentation.

    We've never been lucky enough to see the tall ships when we were in Ventura. We always go to Harbortown in the Fall.

    Happy travels!
