    Last minute note. No, I do not know how we are expected to pay up as the museum didn't make it clear to me either. I do know they have my Visa info so they can charge me for a no-show. I also know the museum needs the $ so I assume they won't care much how it is settled up; at the desk or in one lump sum. Sorry but we are winging this part but if you do arrive before the bulk of us and are asked please let them know you are with the CFI group slated for 2pm. If they are ok with individual payments might as well settle up then.
    The last time I was there, they had a free parking lot and a small front office.

    I'll be bringing in two others with me and hope to be on site early. Seanna is bringing in a few others as well. IanY will also rendezvous with Seanna at the park'n'ride (?) on Eagleson so there will be another car available.

    IanY and Seanna you have each others cell ?

      My share. Gah! Texting.

      To those who can't make it - sorry about the weather. There won't be any fees to pay, since we still made our minimUm numbers. Hope you have a safe trip home.

      I just pulled off the highway at Moodie. I have come close to skidding right off the road one time too many. Heading home. :(((

    Hello, I would be most interested in attending this event. I believe you have all made arrangements for 10 a.m. (the guided tour will be at 10:00 ?).
    I was also wondering if I would be able to get a ride with someone. I reside in the Westend (near Lincoln Fields).
    Thank you kindly!

      OK : ) Great! Looking forward to Saturday afternoon.

      November 18, 2013

    • Diane B.

      Please email me with a cellphone number if you have one or a phone number. I have Brigid's number now who will also be expecting a ride from Lincoln Fields shopping centre. I will email back my cell phone. I'm not happy with having phone numbers public on here.

      November 22, 2013

  • Diane B.

    So far I am only driving Claire. I am picking her up near Gladstone and Preston. I can take 2 or 3 others if needed. I am at Baseline and Fisher. I know from the Eagleson lot it is about 20 minutes to Carp but from here it is a little longer. Drop me a note if you need a lift and I will give you my phone number

    November 21, 2013

  • Seanna

    I have space for one more in my car, pickup at Eagleson Park&Ride

    November 19, 2013

  • Diane B.

    We are getting into the last week before the event and I would like to see car pooling firmed up a bit more. The idea was to rendezvous at a park and ride on Eagleson but some people are coming from Orleans and perhaps some drivers can pick up close by members on their way out.

    I have already told Claire I will pick her up, so I have 2 (3 in a tight fit) spots left. I am near Baseline and Fisher.

    I want people who do not have a ride to let it be known now and get driver/rendezvous locations sorted.

    1pm is a good time for rendezvous to be made before heading to the bunker itself.

      Yeah I have the same question. What time does the tour actually start?

      November 18, 2013

    • A former member

      Diane I'm not that far from you at HEron and Bank. Are there some folks in the area I can pick up or meet up with somewhere?

      November 18, 2013

  • Diane B.

    The guided tour itself is not at 1pm, 1pm is the time you should be rendezvousing if you are using the Eagleson park'n'ride. The rest of you lot can delay a bit and meet up at the museum itself for the 2pm tour. I don't know how fussy they are about times and I am on the hook for a Visa charge, so if you are going directly to the museum be early!

    Hello.

    I have a car that can sit 3 more. I live near Pinecrest and Carling Area and can pick up anyone near there or on the way to Carp. Please e-mail me or reply if you still need a ride.

    Cheers.

    November 18, 2013

  • Jean-Maurice M.

    For car pooling, there is the post diefunbunker diner that I will attend; so I can accomodate two passengers that will also go to this post diner.
    So, if you need a ride, you live close to south keys or live somewhere on my way to Carp, and are planning to go to the post diner, pls let me know.
    Cannot wait to meet you guys.

    November 17, 2013

  • Mike J

    I am looking for a ride. I am near Blair / Montreal and Ogilvie or could meet somewhere downtown.

    November 17, 2013

  • Diane B.

    I'm going to put together a car list.
    Me I have room for 3 to 4 others (4th would be back seat centre)
    Seanna I'm guessing 3 ?
    Karen Elliis 3 others
    Jean-Maurice Moreau 2 others

    Did I miss anyone? I think we will have enough.

    November 13, 2013

    • Seanna

      I have room for 3, but the 3rd is backseat centre. I can pickup at the Eagleson Park&Ride

      Welcome! It will be nice to meet you in person!

  • Alex B

    Diane: I indicated earlier that I would be bringing a guest. Unfortunately, that guest will not be joining us. But I certainly am looking forward to go. Is there some way to change the arrangements? Maybe offer one more spot?

    November 13, 2013

  • Keith D.

    23rd works for me. I'll need a ride though.

    November 1, 2013

    • Diane B.

      We should start setting up car pooling ASAP. Seanna has suggested Eaglesone bus park and ride as one place.

      November 1, 2013

    • Keith D.

      I can get to Eagleson easily enough

      November 4, 2013

  • Jean-Maurice M.

    For car pooling, I can bring two other persons.
    I live near South Keys. Bank & Hunt Club.

    November 1, 2013

  • Kristine

    Rats! I lost the lottery. 23rd is out for me so I guess I'll see Diefenbunker on the 45th of Whenever. I would've loved to be part of a group tour too. Oh well. Have fun. If anything changes in my travel plans, I'll let you know. I'm really sad to be missing out since I was one of the ones who first suggested this event. I'm wearing my sad face!

    November 1, 2013

  • Diane B.

    We'll be needing car pooling for this event. I'll have room for 2-3 people in my car on the 23rd.

    Hello. I'm RSVP'ing for the 23 or 30th, unfortunately I will not be in Ottawa on the 16th. Thanks.

    October 27, 2013

  • Kristine

    I'm RSVP'ing yes, providing it's NOT on the weekend of the 23rd. I'll be sporting a pretty pink mustache and dancing up a storm in Toronto that day.

    October 17, 2013

    • Kristine

      16th is unlikely to work for me either. That leaves the 30th.

      October 18, 2013

  • Diane B.

    I just received email back.


    It looks like we should have availability for a guided tour on either
    November 16th, 23rd, or 30th. ... Would a tour at 10 AM work for you? We would need a minimum
    of 10 participants to make a private group tour reservation. Otherwise I
    could most certainly make a reservation for your group for one of our
    public tours. We have public tours on the weekend at 11 AM, 1 PM and 2 PM.
    ...
    Ok gang any preference or shall I just throw a dart?

    October 10, 2013

    • Kristine

      I've got a Movember swing dance event I hope to attend in Toronto on Nov 23rd so my preference is for 16th or 30th. 16th if I had to pick either one. Also, 1 or 2pm is better for giving those of us traveling from further away us the time to meet up with rides and get there.

      October 17, 2013

    • Kristine

      Turns out 30th is the better day for me after all.

      October 18, 2013

  • Steve W.

    I can't make it on the 30th, but Seanna can.

    October 17, 2013

  • Jean-Maurice M.

    Any of these days and time is ok.

    October 17, 2013

  • Alex B

    The two of us are good for a 10AM guided tour on any one of the three Saturdays in November as proposed.

  • Claire

    This is gonna be so fun... xD

    October 17, 2013

  • Claire

    Since this is just prelim, I was wondering what the cost would be for the tour and the like.

    October 10, 2013

    • Diane B.

      October 10, 2013

    • Diane B.

      $12.50 each I hope at a group of at least 10. I'd like a few more in case people can't make it on the day. We are going to car pool as we did for nature walk, so transportation won't be a problem.

      1 · October 10, 2013

  • Keith D.

    I'm up for this, but is the intention to have some sort of guided tour from some one who knows stuff about the matters on display, or just a walk through as a group "on our own"?

    October 10, 2013

    • Diane B.

      We'll be getting a guided tour. I've been before and it is fascinating stuff.
