: Re: Canada Fans
: SoUrgent June 22, 2010, 10:38:56 PM
yes but will you be on time  :P

HEY!!!! LOL  ;)

It is ALWAYS my brother... not to mention that, when we caught the bus from Freeport to Jones Beach, leaving Freeport at 7:00, the bus never let us off at Jones Beach!!! It did a giant loop picking up the beach goers and not stopping. We tried to hit the bell but he didnt listen. So we ended BACK at Freeport, only to catch a cap at 8pm BACK to Jones Beach...

I'll continue this story on the "Jones Beach" thread tomorow.

Great show though! I'm sorry we couldn't tailgate again... I reamed my brother out.

But for Canada, yes- i will be on time. I will pack my bags this weekend, WITHOUT my brother, LOL  ;D

Babs - I am thinking about.

I have heard from many people how beautiful Vancouver is.

It would be really cold in Vancouver in December. Especially for me since I live in Miami, Florida.

Funny story - when I was in Las Vegas in May to see Foreigner I went to get my shoes shined at the Wynn where I was staying. I had to wait while another gentleman was finishing his shoe shine. He was from Vancouver and we struck up a conversation. He was telling me all about Vancouver. This is before I found out that Foreigner is playing in Vancouver.

Yeah, it will be cold in Vancouver. That's why I'm planning to move to the warmth - Venezuela, maybe ...

"The BC Gang" will be the next FOREIGNER fan group. I"ll be there. Gina - you will be too...I'm making the arrangements. Will great to finally meet Stuart face-to-face! Babs will be there as well!

WHO ELSE?!

It's freaking NEW YEARS!!!! What a better way to end a most eclispical 2010, and hope for an even better 2011!
: Re: Canada Fans
: Jeffrey Bullock June 24, 2010, 08:06:31 PM
Oh, and Nick better be there, and ON TIME as well!

Stuart, Vancouver is never really cold! And it is the only place where I have ACTUALLY SEEN American Bald Eagles up on Vancouver Mountain. I love eagles. The Bald Eagle was my high school mascot, and the Bald Eagle is the symbol of the great company I work for - American Airlines!

Not to diminish "The Jersey Gang", but "The BC Gang" is something that really is something to look forward to.

We need big participation here folks! Start saving your money, start working extra hours at work.

"The BC Gang" will be one for the records!

Hi Michellea,  Thanks for the head's up!  I'll have to check it out.
: Re: Canada Fans
: Mary Jean Sopiro July 06, 2010, 12:04:37 PM
Well, I talked to my hubby and he "nixed" the trip.  So, I won't be going.  Foreigner would have to come out to Ottawa for me to see them again.  (Not likely).  :(  Unless my son and daughter-in-law would like to go.
Right now they are on vacation and back  Thurs night.  Problem is they both work shift work hrs. so it is not always possible for them to take the time off. One's a paramedic and the other firefighter (son).    Oh well, by the time I talk to them most of the tickets will be gone seeing it is such a small venue (1500 seats).

Maybe it will work out:) Don't give up hope! Foreigner fans have a way of working things out...sometimes even at the last minute. I won't be making the trip from NC either, as I will be there about a week before to see Styx.
: Re: Canada Fans
: ekelly51 July 06, 2010, 12:54:09 PM
Isn't that the truth Michelle. We Foreigner fans can work something out to go see them when we can. Not always but sometimes. I'm lucky enough to be able to work something out with my husband and son so I can go to the show in Napa, California on September 22 which is my birthday. My sister and my friend Cecelie who you also met in Las Vegas are taking me. It's about 500 miles (one way) from where I live. We got 3 front row seats. Can't wait. Waiting  kills me. I'm disappointed though that there is no M&G :( I'm just spoiled I guess. You know the feeling.

Thanks Michelle. I sure will.This is a special day for me.
Can't beat being with Foreigner on your birthday :) ;)
: Re: Canada Fans
: Mary Jean Sopiro July 06, 2010, 02:39:21 PM
Eunice, wow what a great birthday present! Hope you have a good time! (I'm sure you will).

Michellea, hope you too have a wonderful time seeing Styx.  By the time the Fallsview Casino sent me their update on shows, Styx was already sold out!  I probably wouldn't be going anyway, as my husband finds it too far to travel for just 1 show.  He's not really into rock music, so I was surprised that he took me to see Foreigner back in February. I am grateful that he took me up to Casino Rama.   Anyway, like you said, I should not give up hope!  

Hummm, I wonder if the FWT could convey a message to management and book them at Casino du Lac Leamy in Gatineau, Quebec!  It is right across the Ottawa River from Ottawa!  That would be fantastic!

Hey, well since Foreigner is 2 nights in a row...maybe he will make an exception?? :)
Styx is 3 nights in a row which will be very nice!
Keep us posted!

Hi Michellea,  It sounds like a nice argument to me, however, as I said before, my husband is not really into rock and that logic doesn't work with him.  I'll keep you posted if anything changes.

By the way, are you attending all 3 Styx shows?

I posted when I got the email from the Niagara venue - not realizing this was already on the board (sorry!) - so I removed my post, since it was redundant.

LisaB,  That's OK.  Fallsview Casino is always late in sending out the concert announcements.  I got my email on Saturday when the tix went on sale on Friday  :o

Damn seriously! After NYE we'll go to LA, get a car and explore all the National Parks, then to NYC for another 4 days before going back home  :) :) :)
: Re: Canada Fans
: Mary Jean Sopiro August 03, 2010, 08:17:27 AM
Babs, sounds like a fantastic trip you've got planned.  The redwoods in Calif. are amazing! You'll enjoy California.   Will you be driving down to San Diego?  Beautiful city to visit.   New York city is a great place to visit.  To see the city, I suggest you take the Grey Lines Holiday Lights All Loops Tour, it's a hop on, hop off, double decker bus with a tour guide.  You can get off at any stop and sightsee.  Get back on for the night tour.  It is spectacular with all the lights, and when you are there, the Xmas lights will still be up, I'm sure.  I was there for 2 days last year and in order to see all the sights it was the best way to go. You can also probably do a Circle Line ZEPHYR Harbor cruise.  You get to see the Statue of Liberty up close.  Well, Hope this helps with your planning!

: Re: Canada Fans
: Babs Marks August 03, 2010, 11:45:49 AM
KC - thanks so much for hints. I've been to all these places already (except Vancouver). But: it will be the first time that I'm there in the winter. Gosh! do you think x-mas decoration will still be up? I hate x-mas ...
Anyway, we'll have a wonderful time. And isn't it great that Baerbel joins us? Yippee!!!!!
David - would be great if we could meet! Got your cellphone-No., will text you from my American one as soon as we are there. God, sounds as if it is already tomorrow .... wish it would be.

: Re: Canada Fans

Hi Babs, I wasn't aware you had already been to NYC.  I wouldn't be surprised that the Xmas decorations might still be up.  I've never been to NYC at that time of year, so it is just a guess.  Maybe Gina would know?    I've never been to Vancouver, but, a friend of mine said Stanley Park is a must see, if they have it open in winter. They got a lot of snow last year, so be prepared for rain, sleet or snow!

Hope you have a great time! ;D

Hi Babs- I read you're going to LA as well. Keep me inform and let me know when you're in LA. It's  only 2 hours from Santa Barbara. It will be great to meet you Barbel and David as well. You could drive up and visit Santa Barbara. It is a beautiful City.

But maybe you are able to send me a PM; my E-Mail is on the board.

So we could come in contact.

Babs,
I have family in Vancouver and have visited several times. It really is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been, although I have never been there in the winter. Stanley Park is a must, you can also take a train that runs to Whistler mountain and take a boat back down the coast, I'm not sure if that is a seasonal thing or not. There is also a suspension bridge around somewhere, It might be in Squamish. The bridge crosses a huge gorge...not for the faint of heart. That may be a seasonal thing as well. If I talk to my sister in law, I will try to find out the scoop on winter tourism in Vancouver. Hope you have a great time!
: Re: Canada Fans
: Babs Marks August 04, 2010, 02:20:22 AM
Eunice - aren't you lucky to live in St. Barbara! I've been there and we stayed for 5 days - beautiful place! Don't think we'll go up there but if we should pass we'll definately contact you! National Parks come first.

Dede - we won't have that much time in Vancouver, unfortunately, as we'll get there on the 28th and leave on the 2nd of January already for L.A. Don't forget about the jetlag we're bound to have ... tough ...
Thanks for the hints anyway.
Babs

Hi Tatjana- I'll be glad to. It will be my pleasure as well.
I will need your whole name or your E-mail address but we probably don't want to post it on the board.
Come to think of it, I have Jeff's and Gina's E-mail address. If they have your E-mail I can ask one of them if they can E-mail it to me. I'm sure they don't mind.

Babs,
I'm sure you will find something to do while you are there. The jet lag does take a little out of you. Hope you guys have a great time...I'm sure you will. Wish I could make the trip to meet you guys. My husband has relatives in Germany and used to visit from time to time. Can't wait for the review!
