Was a little crazy with the crowd -- but as expected they were a great bunch of people!  Weather was good and spirits high.  Linus did a great job of entertaining the mob and gave out some bling.

 

Picked up what I wanted, and for a really good price.  Maybe I'll head back around 5 or so... and see if there's anything left worth buying.

wow thats intense lol 

btw off-topic but which stores in the area do you get your 5 gallon buckets? i didnt know the creator of that site lives in BC lol

a couple quick clips from the meetup. Played some giant connect-4 and did the office tour.

 

 

We were there at noon, only about 80 people there but hundreds more showed up over the next couple hours. Huge crowd by the time we left

I buy them 15 at a time from the Soap Exchange near Hillside Mall. In Victoria -> http://www.victoriasoapexchange.com/ They are 2nd hand but super clean because they've only been used to store soap

found this in the CMstorm laptop cooler that i bought for 15 bucks at the auction :S #spooked
 
 
 
i'm the guy that gave Linus that Norwegian coin btw.

 

Did you FLY in from Norway just for the meetup?

 

Also that head is part of the Danboard toy from Yotsuba!. They have them as USB chargers in the office, so I am guessing one of the staff people also have the real toy and accidentally the extra head fell into the cooler! You might want to reach out to someone on staff to see if anyone lost one:

well it kinda started with that. a death in the family caused me to not be able to go on the scheduled annual trip to Canada that i usually go on. i saw the announcement for the meetup late august and asked my dad if i could just go then for a couple weeks and he immediately said "sure" and agreed to pay for the trip.

 

i've also been visiting with my aunt here in Vancouver so it wasnt 100% for the trip. now i'm worrying how to get all the crap i bought at the garage sale home :S got the 3x XFX monitor stand for 100$ a MSI Z97 motherboard, a Zalman watercooler, a bitfenix Colossus bundled with a decent headset and the coolermaster laptop cooler i mentioned :S

 

shipping it with FedEx is out of the question, the estimate was fucking 1200 bucks... more than twice the retail value of the stand itself...

Ohhhh! I saw you at the meetup :D.... I was telling my friend that he should offer you some cash for that case, because you got it for "free" with your other item and we weren't sure if you really wanted it.

 

If you're looking to offload some stuff, I could probably help you out with that (pay some money towards your items that you don't necessarily want to keep anymore). Send me a PM on the forum!

I would've loved to go, but Tennessee is just a little too far from the great and mighty white north

i know this thread is getting a bit old and the question i'm about to ask is kindof irrelevant.

 

so at the garage sale i bought the XFX triple monitor stand and i'm wondering if i can just check it in as normal baggage at the airport? it just needs some tape i'd think... doesnt matter when i get the answer as its just in retrospect as my aunts car broke down and i had to take a cap to the airport and the box wouldnt fit in the trunk :S

 

my aunt's gonna ship it though its gonna cost around 160-300 bucks :S though i'd have to pay 120 bucks for the extra luggage anyhoo
