The question has been raised oabout getting a ride or a taxi to the dinner. If you are able to help with giving a ride or you would like to share a taxi let me know and we can organise those that want a ride.

The average price of a taxi to Earls from the hotel is $10.90 + tip. 
I found a website for average prices for taxis; wwwtaxifarefinder.com This website will do fares from almost anywhere. Type in starting point and destination to get the average price.

Richard posted a local taxi company which has 6 seater taxi's as well as a lot of others.  See his posting in getting around Vancouver.

I've merged the topic from the Off the Grid board with this, the main dinner get together thread so it doesn't get confusing

WOW! I was sending a mental message to you yesterday to see if they could be merged. Good to see I still have it! Thanks Richard. 👍

Add me to this waiting list. I have.apparently never been on this forum... I just registered today! So it's been 6 years! I have A LOT of catching up to do on every topic if there's time. Meanwhile, if they're already at capacity for the meet-up dinner on the 7th, I will invent an alternate gathering place at or across the street from the host hotel.

I can now confirm that Earls (across the street from the Hotel) has confirmed our reservation! We don't have to pre-order and they will take individual billing. I am going with cash on the night as I think it will help with the tipping. 😊.

I suppose I had better book my flight and accommodation soon! 😊

Atlantia, I'm not sure how this forum works yet, but I believe you will see this. Add me to whatever waiting list there is for the Earls across the street from the hotell. If capacity.ends up being a problem, as I said I can invent a second place nearby for all who can't fit into Earls. The moderators know me, and I know virtually no one here by their handle yet. I only have probably 1,000 more posts to catch up on ... sometime!

This is my first GateCon and I am going alone. Could I be added to whatever waiting list you are keeping for this get together? This sounds like fun!
Thanks.

Sorrrrry!!!!
I've been a total stranger these days, work and little girl and stressing and just everything in general... but YAY... 5 minutes to myself to say YAY again and I cannot wait for this....
It is looking like it is going to be just  myself +1 coming for the pre-con so you are welcome to change the list and add someone else now :)!
Thanks soooo much for taking the time to arrange this for us Atlantia :)! You are amazeballs!

Hi Mike,
I know you from facebook. I have added you, George and Jchu100 to the wait list. I am hoping closer to the time that I will be able to add everyone on the waitlist. I think Earls will be able to cope.
Unfortunately, Earls is not exactly across the road, it is round a couple of corners and across the road. I had mixed the Hotels up.

Nonnie, thanks for the update.

Also to re-cap, if you think any of you will be taking a taxi to and from Earls and would like to share, just let me know and book accordingley.
Thanks

For anyone walking, I believe there is a short cut through the shopping centre. I think it is open late also. If anyone knows different or can confirm my thoughts, feel free to update.
