    Talked to Allen, organizer ... this Saturday is still on, but didn't inquire about Friday night. I presume so, but call ahead to be sure.

    Oh, Sat Aug 28 was "on" as well, since I played :D ... and Allen extended till like 5:00 or 5:30 ... I left at 4.

    Reason i've asked
    cause, i'll be there from Oct.14 pm to Sunday Oct.17
    so wondering if Brit will be the scheduled place to play.

    I know last time they talked about this place called BCIT?
    in the evening. But cause it was during the start of school
    so they cancelled the playing time.

    Remind me when it gets closer to the dates, dont_cgy, I might be able to make Friday night.

    On Thursdays, there's an "okay" drop-in at Marpole-Oakridge Community Center (Oak and 57th) that runs from 7pm to 10 pm ... just arrive a but early, say 6:30 or 6:40ish to get a space.

    If we can rustle up some more people, Thurs at BCIT is okay too.

    Yes, those are the correct times. It's not been busy the last few weeks, but it's always best to arrive a bit early :D
