It’s a busy week in Victoria, BC for tweetups. There are simply too many to mention in a single tweet.
Wednesday August 11th noon join Dan Parks @cpudan and Sean Dhillon@I_lend_Money for the weekly 4Square High Noon Hump Day Tweetup. This week the group meets at Ric’s Grill 910 Government Street. If you are a fan of mobile apps, FourSquare and the rest – this group is for you.
Thursday August 12th 8am join Janis La Couvée @lacouvee and an awesome group of local Victoria twitterers for our semi-monthly am #Victoriatweetup at Cabin 12 Restaurant @Cabin12Victoria 607 Pandora Avenue. We meet on the 2nd Thursday and 4th Wednesday of the month. Everyone is welcome. Lots of great conversations, and a chance to develop connections with other solopreneurs, business owners, professionals and community members. This tweetup was started in May 2010 as the result of a conversation between Dan Parks, Catherine Novak @Wordspring and Janis La Couvée. Twitter was fairly new in Victoria; it was and continues to be a place for people to take their online connections offline to connect face to face.
Thursday August 12th 1pm #YYJBleeders tweetup. Meet at the Canadian Blood Services 3449 Saanich Road (close to the intersection with Douglas Street). Carlone Leon @VicCityParty recently gave blood and suggested this tweetup. Blood donations are always down in the summer, the need is always up. If you are able to give blood, please consider coming. Check here first for the criteria Can I Donate? and then contact Janis La Couvée @lacouvee to ensure a time is booked for you.
Thursday August 12th 7pm Bard and Banker Scottish Pub. Join Frans Jonker @fransjonker for The Road to Port Hardy Tweetup. Frans departs August 16th for a 4 day 525 km solo charity bike ride (Victoria to Port Hardy) to raise funds for the BC Cancer Foundation. More information about the ride can be found on his website The Road to Port Hardy or by following his tweets@roadtoporthardy. Let’s send Frans off in style, with our support.
