  • This location is shown only to members

Update:

The Canadian Space Society has posted a notice on their website at http://www.css.ca/ indicating cancellation of the event.  If you wish to do something with our group tonight and aren't bothered by today's weather, may I suggest the mix & mingle event downtown at The Exchange.  See http://www.meetup.com/arts-and-culture-ottawa/events/112899142/ for details.  There should be enough room for all at The Exchange as some people have cancelled their rsvp's for the mix & mingle because of the weather.

 

 

NOTICE: DUE TO INCLEMENT WEATHER, THIS EVENT IS CANCELLED

Hope you have a Happy Yuri's Night anyway, our apologies for any inconvenience!

    Hey everyone .... I already sent an email to all rsvp'ing members, but thought I'd also send a notice by way of this comments thread to make sure that I reach more people. Update: The Canadian Space Society has posted a notice on their website at http://www.css.ca/ indicating cancellation of the event. If you wish to do something with our group tonight and aren't bothered by today's weather, may I suggest the mix & mingle event downtown at The Exchange.

My sincere apologies to any members who made the trek to the museum only to find the museum closed and empty. - Victor

    I won't be able to make it due to the weather.
    I have to go back home to grab the car and my brother just drove around our area and says that traffic is a nightmare.
    Have a good time and Ill see you guys at another outing.
    And yes, as a motorcyclist, enough with the snow...

    Sorry; looks like it's going to be too difficult getting there from my neck of the woods :).

    Where do we meet first? Maybe at the door entrance for a specific hour? What do you think Victor?

      I'm thinking that we can meet inside the museum by the ticket counter at 6:00 pm.

    The Canada Aviation and Space Museum is a great Museum! Chris Hadfield has had bilingual conversations with kids from elementary schools lately: they were all thrilled to see him on video directly from the space after the NASA had agreed to make these special arrangements.
    I was present at one of these activities. It was an incredible event!
