Localife Toronto: Snow day

February 9, 2013

A day after a winter snowstorm hit the city, we woke up to a beautiful sunny morning. It was a perfect day for skating.

We had a great reserved area for lunch and board games. As soon as all expected Localifers arrived, we were all ready to hit the ice! We had five winter troopers who came out to enjoy the beautiful sunny weather with their own skates.

After a few rounds to test out the ice, we ditched our layers and/or winter jackets.  It was like a beach day in the winter with freshly made ice! While some of us hit the ice, the others remained at the Harbourfront Centre Lakeside EATS for food and beverages over some cancer chats. Some shared stories of where they are now, and others shared stories of what they had been through.

Despite the venue anticipating it to be a busy weekend, it was not as crowded as it could be, and we sat there chilling enjoying each other’s company until 4 p.m. The venue provided us with a stack of board games that ended up on the backburner.

Perhaps we will bring the board games out at another event some day. Until then, enjoy the snow! It is not going to last!

Big thanks to Harbourfront Centre for setting up the venue, and Wellspring for providing a couple of other board games we did not crack open.
