    Thanks for organizing this Roland, Dave and Alan. The lecture was very informative! It was great to see Venus and Jupiter. Being a good Trekkie, I love Vulcan. Sorry for leaving early but i did not go home after work so I was in my work clothes and was getting cold. I'll know better next time.

    I am going and have space in my car. I could give you a ride Anette and possibly Atul. I will be leaving Calgary around 5:30pm from the SW. I work near Southland and Southport. Message me if you want to car-pool.

      If there was ride-sharing, I'd go. (I can't justify driving there alone and polluting without ride sharing)

      I'm willing to rent a car if smeone will split expnses. We could do it for $10 each if there is 5 of us.

      If you are interersted just reply to this message with your phone #

    I can't make this one, but how often does this happen? I'd like to make the next one.
