    Fellow players I need your help.
    I'm visiting Vancouver for the next 2 weeks and I'm looking for a place to play some drop-ins. Any day any time be fine, location near Joyce or Metrotown would be ideal.
    I've played a couple times at Dunbar last summer, but it's a bit far.
    Metrotown's Bonsor is a good location, but I remember that place was quite popular and I couldn't play sometimes because their drop-ins were full. I haven't been there for a couple of years. I'm curious of what their schedule is like now.
    Any information, suggestions or insights would be greatly appreciated.

    At Joyce, there's Collingwood Neighbourhood House, one block south of the Joyce skytrain station. Call them up or I think they have a website. Advance play on Sunday 10 pm till 1 pm.

    LoL Dave get off the internet and get some sunburns you shouldn't be browsing the forums when you are on vacation !!!

    Back on topic, you might want to try Bonsor rec center. It is a few blocks from the metrotown skytrain station and its about 4.50 per person. Haven't been there in a while but you can try to call and ask them. the morning sessions should still be monday weds.
