Watchmen movie social -- Saturday, April 11

Hi everyone,

So based on everyone's responses, we will be watching the Watchmen movie on Saturday, April 11 sometime in the afternoon (between 1:00-5:00 pm). Location will be at the Scotiabank Theatre in downtown Vancouver (900 Burrard Street, Vancouver).

If you have any questions on transit or which bus to take, feel free to ask.

We can meet up in front of the Scotiabank Theatre 1 hour prior to the movie start time, perhaps have a drink at the Starbucks right next to the theatre while we wait. I'm not sure how busy it will be since it will be during the Easter long weekend but it's good to buy tickets an hour earlier. If you think you might be a bit late, you can always pay in advance and get one of us to buy the ticket for you.

I will announce the exact movie time on April 9 or once the times have been posted in the newspaper.

If you would like to join us, please RSVP so I have a good idea of how many people will be showing up.

Lost and found items from the Lazar

Hi everyone,

For those who came and/or fenced, thank you for your help, support and advice. Most of all, thank you for coming. We really appreciate the help! :)

I know some of you are recovering from the Stephen Lazar Memorial Tournament yesterday but we have several items that need to be claimed.

We have found the following items: 3 body cords, 1 electric foil, 1 lame jacket, 1 glove, and 1 wrist bracelet.

I would like to ask all of you to take a look in your fencing bag to see if you are missing anything.

If you think one or more of the above items belongs to you, please email us back and describe in detail the item(s) so that I know they are, indeed, yours before you can claim the item(s).

Also, if you have mistakenly picked up a watch that is not yours, please contact us so we can give it back to the owner.

Thank you.
