Hehehe. I don't feel old. I'm still young at heart. There's a few of us who are of working age. I think Zeeman is also a fellow working guy...

+1000, working full time, there are more immediate, everyday stresses, but at school, there are always "predetermined" deadlines for things like assignments, papers, exams, etc, so you know when and what is going to happen, but while working, stresses are more constant and unpredictable, especially if you are like me b/c i work in a fast pace environment with constant changes

Thanks for rallying together guys! I agree with a lot of the comments; mostly that the working world is far more stressful than post-secondary ever was.

And for the record, I'm still young at heart; just ask anyone who's seen me drive

No, that's just for aesthetics.

The fun part is driving Osoyoos to Vancouver in 3h40min

Indeed I am....and I totally agree with you about university. On top of being relatively stress free, there were better woman (an more availability) , better partying , and you get all that time off. It was a damn utopia compared to the working world.

So all you guys that are in school should enjoy it while it lasts.

OK...this is getting kinda ridiculous. We are all too spread apart on the dates. I think we'll just have to pick a date or else nothing will get done. I really didn't want to do this...so I'm really sorry if I'm picking a date that you can't make it...but...here's my suggestions on what to do. Jeesh...talk about problems with the democratic process.

1) Sunday, April 20, 2008 - Autocross Event
Those who are interested can come out for an autocross event with the BMW Car Club of BC at the BC Performance Driving Centre at Pitt Meadows Airport. This is not an official "E90Post" event but it should be a really fun event regardless. It costs $115 but you get training from instructors from Driving Unlimited and it also includes catered lunch. I will be attending. Registration will be open until April 16th. For more information and sign up, go here: http://www.bmwccbc.org/

2) Mini-Meet - SFU Parking B Lot - Saturday, April 26, 2008
Those who are attending SFU/UBC and want to meet after exams around the April 26 time should organize their own mini-meet. I'm only suggesting the date and place hoping it will make things easier for people. Also if it is on the 26th then people who want to go autocrossing can also go to this event the week after. But I leave it up to the young and hip university folk to decide what day works best for a mini-meet. I would avoid meeting downtown on April 20th as that is the day of the Vancouver Sun Run (and a lot of bridge/traffic mess).

3) E90Post Spring Meet - Sunday, May 11, 2008
As for the actual main event...let's go with May 11, 2008. It seems to be the popular choice (by one vote). Let's say meeting time around 1PM. So here are potential places to meet up:

1. SFU - B Lot
2. Cypress Mountain Parking Lot
3. Other

Tack on your input now! Or else the meeting place will be set down....please don't make me do this.
