A lot of the Seattle Ristis couldn't make it This second time and many of the Vancouver peeps were busy with family and newborns (Congrats Nelson!) this long weekend. Yet a great turnout nevertheless with lots of donated swag to draw for.

Swag I won. PAM yearly calendar in a bound book and a baseball style Risti Yachting shirt.

Mike sat next to me. His box of beauties. I met him from the first TZ GTG many years back. He recently acquired a Lange like me and on this day, he also bought a Seadweller from Steve. Tags, stickers and all! Safe baby never been worn.

The new SD he bought from Steve. Both Steve and his wife Carol came up from Washington state for the weekend. It was awesome weather for a change and the venue was perfect on the patio.

Ari had his Seika Anata, an original Omega Proplof diver, and a red gold Ferrari Girard Perregaux watch that I forgot to snap a wrist shot of! :( Ari did draw the GP t-shirt too. What a coincidence!

Lia got in here too, then Sam. We had two tables back and forth looking for shade. But the sun on the watches were heating up the metal and yet taking great pics as well?! Toughie... We initially had an inside high seated longbar table, but it was the right call by organizers Kevin and Sam to move outside on the patio!

One of the coolest swag gifts. Sam won a Panerai belt. Looked nautical with it's navy blue front area and twined rope going around the waist to back.

Sam's Submersible. He also acquired a new GMT which I failed to grab a pic of :(

But I still had lots of time with Mike's collection. Here are more of his.

Sorry fellas. I am just realizing now that I barely went around to drool with the Ristis talking straps, new Basel pieces and Paneristi forum gossip, etc.

I hear that this piece is quite desirable. Demitry's PAM 339 made entirely out of composite material. I'm talking feather weight light here! Amazing!

Here is another show stopper. A limited edition run with Steve's name engraved on the caseback.

Noticing a lot of black metals at this GTG! I seem to remember at the January party (I'll dig up the link) we had a lot of SS and lots of new in house Panerais being shown around. Quite the trend switch from half a year ago. :)

But then Sam opens up his travelcase and I'll just stop thinking aloud. There is the 'new' GMT he picked up. Not in-house, but the previous ETA version. Pretty sharp strap on it!

Moving to my right...Kyle has my full attention. He's gone through a 20 watch Panerai phase and now he's all about modern Rolex. Well, until he moves some of his vintage pieces online or he'll bring at the next party. Double reds, Comex, McQueen, Newman Daytona, etc

Here's what he managed to put in his pocket that didn't mix with his reserved pocket for a Samsung Galaxy ii. Wow! 8mp camera and wireless data sending (music, pics, etc)!!

Your eyes aren't deceiving you. This bronze Breitling dial use to be blue.

Kyle was wearing a DSSD and showed us the differences between this easy glide clasp and the new Sub system. Far superior as he demonstrated. Sorry no pic of the DeepSea. I am too amazed by seeing his new green Sub in the flesh. Handled the black on my trip to Hawaii in February. This is steering me away from the GMT ii-c, I must admit.

As always, GTG was about new friends, old friends, forums, travel, life experiences, food...and those dumb hockey rioters.

Swag to give out. As seen before, some pretty cool stuff!

Kevin got us to draw out of the bag and we wanted to make sure everyone left with something. Steve and his wife Carol provided some generous Risti donations as did all the others.

Final shot, thanks for looking. I'll add anything if the others post up their pics from the event. None if us brought an SLR so cameraphones was the device of choice. Actually, Demitry had a modern Leica digital camera. So I'll follow him.

My one personal wrist shot of the day. GV back on it's bracelet for summer time. Gotta love the PCL's.
