I am definitely going to be there, hopefully with a bunch of returning staff and a couple new members!

(Is the meeting room going to be where the table top gaming was, or the VIP dinner?  Or somewhere else?)

I have no clue to whether or not I can make that one yet. With my work being a bunch of arses, I won't know my schedule until two weeks before hand. Also transportation is tricky for me.

I should definitely be there; unless something insane happens between now and then. O.o

Will be there. However, I have not driven there myself. What's the arrangement for parking? Will I need to pay to park somewhere or.... yeah. Thanks.  ;D

AFAIK, it's okay for us to park in the lot of the hotel.

I believe that the parking meters along the streets only charge on weekdays, so anywhere that there are meters should be fine.  I can double check on that, though.

Update:  According to cityofvancouver.us ...

"All parking meters are enforced from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday – Friday, except for the following holidays: New Year’s Day, Martin Luther King’s Birthday, Presidents’ Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Columbus Day, Veterans; Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day."

Also, "Disclaimer: The information contained in this document is subject to change. If you have a specific question, please contact Customer Service at (360) 487-8454 or Parking Services at (360) 487-8650."

I also just called the hotel and, according to the operator, the parking garage is $2.50 from 6am-10pm on the weekends, or $0.75 an hour.  (So, if you're planning on staying for more than 3 hours, you should pay for all day).  They accept cash or credit card.  (I probably should have asked if that includes debit card...)

If any of you guys are interested in going to Mochitsuki (Japanese New Year Festival) to eat Mochi and play games and probably watch me make a fool of myself on the main stage...

I'll have a few tickets left at this meeting to sell! So bring $10 (or $7 if you have a valid student ID)

Mochitsuki is on January 29th from 11a-4p at the Scottish Rite Center. I am really looking forward to it!

Yes, unless we announce otherwise. (Any announcement otherwise would be sent to the staff mailing list, and posted on the front page and the forums.)

The way the weather's going right now, I highly doubt it'll snow before the meeting tommorow.

Not going to be able to make it. It stopped snowing for now but the news said it's supposed to be on and off and I can't risk getting stuck on I-5 or in Vancouver.  :( I already skidded on a frozen ice patch a few minutes ago coming home....
