Saturday, February 4th, 2012 - Gung Hei Fat Choy 2012!
« on: January 01, 2012, 12:57:36 »
Well folks, it's that time of year again!  January 23, 2012 is Chinese New Year -- the year of the Dragon.  GreyingJay and myself are once again pleased to host the Gung Hei Fat Choy lunch event.

The event listing is: http://coord.info/GC3A2WF (published)

Date: Saturday, January 21, 2012 February 4th, 2012
Time: 12:00pm noon
Location: Emerald Buffet (formerly Du Barry), on Selkirk Drive in Vanier.  A Chinese buffet with plenty of selection including lots of dim sum, dumplings, and your standard Chinese (and Canadian Chinese) fare. I think this is THE best Chinese buffet in Ottawa.

Pricing and payment: As some of you might remember last year's event, Kevin and I decided to go with a pre-payment to one of us and we will pay the bill in one lump sum.  This worked out to be a success.  We will also receive free tea and pop.

The costs to you will be, including HST and gratuity:

Adults: $15.00 per person
Children (5 to 12 years old): $10.00 per person
Children (2 to 4 years old): $5.00 per person

I hope that this is amenable to all of you.  I think this is the easiest solution that keeps everybody happy: all of you, me, the waiters, and the manager.  Please note that to keep the numbers simple, I have rounded down.  This means I am not making any money off the collection.  (E.g. Adult buffet price = $12.99 plus tax and 10% gratuity = $16.15).  Consider it our New Year's gift to the CCC!

Looking forward to seeing you all at the event!

Please raise your hand if you have not won / don't want to win / never want to see another model12 geocoin and I'll throw one in the hat...  ;D

Since I won't be able to attend this year, I'll try to get a coin to one of the guys so that Jamie can have a chance at winning one.

Time permitting, I may pop in and say hello, but I can't stay for food.

Hi folks, because of other commiments, GreyingJay might not be able to join us on that date.  As he is part of this as much as any of us.

I'm wondering if the reviewers will let us, would anyone be opposed to having the date changed from the 21st to February 4th?

I'd be fine with February 4th.  Easier for me, actually.

I'm pretty sure the reviewers won't have a problem with this, as there are more than 15 days left before February 4th...

Please be advised...

The event date has been changed to February 4th.  Same time, same place.

May I recommend disabling the event, then re-enabling with an explanation to generate a notification email to all who subscribe?

I suggest you use the new "announcement" log to tell everyone about this change, I think it will send an e-mail to everyone who already posted a "will attend".

Excellent! Now I can attend! The announcement system works perfectly, and I'll watch to see if it's included again on the weekly GC.com email.
