Still getting details, but looks like my wife and I will be starting a Canadian Rockies train trip from Vancouver and will be there May 31, 2020.

Anyone interested in meeting in the afternoon?

Hi Andy and welcome Ken. I would be a definite yes and could help arrange something. Perhaps a meet up at a store then drinks or dinner. Andy Trott’s might be an option.

I would also be able to go to Victoria in June if that works better. Out of Ireland is worth a visit.

What about some golf? I was in your hood last week. Played Escena, Shadow Ridge and Desert Springs. Let me know.

What time of day were you thinking about? Meal? Format?
Ken:
Early or mid-afternoon. My wife and I have a dinner to go to that evening. Maybe just drinks? Any fun bars at the Douglas Hotel?
David has some good ideas.

THANKS. "Andy Trotts" sounds like fun! :)
I don't usually play golf when I'm on vacation. Next time you're here and have time we should do something. Hope you had lunch at Escena.

We did not eat at Escena, it was V day and we had a reservation there but they wanted us to wait until they re opened which was an hour away. We ended up at Pomme Frites which was bad.

Really like Escena. Shadow Ridge was very good as well, I got in less trouble the second time we played it. The pins can be very evil.

If we don't have enough Members to interest Andy Trotts, we might consider The Douglas, Autograph Collection Hotel, Vancouver in the D/6 bar.

I'll check with Andy Trotts.

Yes sounds great. I really like both the Douglas and the JW Marriott. They are in the same complex and share an excellent concierge suite. They treat my wife like a celebrity.

Andy: (Great name!)​
I hope you are familiar with my website and Forums. Occasionally when my wife and I travel, we’ll try to meet with gentlemen from my site.​
I’m in Vancouver on May 31 and June 1. I’ve just announced this and have 3 who would like to meet so far. We’ve often done these get togethers in bars/restaurants and men’s shops. One of the AskAndy Members mentioned your store.​
Just wanted to see if you were interested. Might involve serving some wine (white for spilling is best J). But if we don’t have more than 3, I don’t think it would be worth your while. We’ll see.​
Here are some recent AskAndy Events in London, Portland, OR (John Helmer’s) and Hong Kong.​
THANKS,​
Andy Gilchrist​

"We are not interested."

I would shop for my clothes at O'Reilly's Auto Parts before I'd patronize that place.
Agree. That's insulting. I'd be enraged if I received a reply like that. If he is indeed "a very nice man" someone should point out to him that he (or whoever sent that reply) is not coming across that way.
