    Both talks were so rich ...thank you...and the sky so clear...other than the brutal -40C cold everything was great :)

    Anybody who wants to rideshare to to this RAO open house should, 1) reply to this message, 2) phone me at[masked], and 3) also meet us at 7:00pm at the Downtown-West/Kerby LRT Station, North Parking Lot. We will be splitting the costs and I will do my best to drop people off afterwards as close to their homes as convenient. I can take 3-4 people.
