    I have been talking with Minder, the CR for Ottawa. We have both agreed that it would be fun to get both Fan Forces together for a group activity.

    1. What do you think would be a good activity to plan for us to do together?

    2. Would you be willing to travel to Ottawa for an activity? Perhaps Canada Day weekend, as it falls on a Saturday?

    Huh...when is that, exactly? Is it supposed to be an outdoor or indoor meet? Because maybe it would be great to use the ideas everybody had for a group activity before?

    We haven't agreed on a time or place. This is just a thread to get ideas as to what you would like to do if we invited the Ottawa Fan Force here or if we went there.

    I was suggesting going to Ottawa for Canada Day (July 1st) as it falls on a weekend and there would be lots of activities to choose from there to do! :)

    Perhaps we could invite the Ottawa Fan Force to Montreal on a long weekend as well. Victoria Day is an option or well in Ontario they have a long weekend early in August. Perhaps that would work out well for them and if they came here it wouldn't matter to us that it isn't a long weekend here! :)

    We could use one of the suggestions as an activity. Perhaps the water slides at St. Sauveur???

    I'm looking for general comments at the moment! :) Please post ideas!!!

    Sounds likea great idea. I like the Mount St. Sauveur idea, too. Also I got a few suggestions. We could try laser quest, the movie theater, paint ball, la Ronde. I guess there'd be a few other ideas too, but I'm not really the best one for that seeing as I live an hour away from there! :p

    I hate being the guy with the downer attitude, but Canada day in Ottawa is pretty much crowd bath everywhere you go.

    But,

    I have been to the museum of technology and science in the past and I really liked it. I would be delighted to go again. and maybe at another museum as well (I think there's one with dinosaurs and all, like the Redpath here in Montreal but one you need to pay to get in.)

    It would be the natural history museum, if there's dinosaur fossils etc. I think the hardest thing about going for Canada day would be getting a hotel room! I'll start a poll....

    Actually, it is the Museum of Nature!! And all admision is free on Canada Day I believe.

    Hello all. My name is Elijah. I am a Mod over on the Ottawa forum. Just thought I'd stop in here and say hi.

    There have been a lot of great suggestions abuot events we could do. I really like the La Rounde idea. I LOVE coasters!!! Uilmuteiz is right though, Canada Day has TONS of people. But I think that is a fun part about celebrating CD in the capital!! It has been a couple years that my wife and I have been because we have gone upto the cottage and just relaxed.

    These ideas are great. We will try and come up with some more. It would be fantastic for us to get together and meet eachother. That is what FanForce is all about!!

    Take care!!

    Mike,

    When Rob became the FF Rep, he made me a mod. Not sure why though. To be honest, I don't really know what I am supposed to be doing. Anyone have some ideas? Thanks.

    Only Seb and I can create mods/RSAs and that also requires the blessings of the other FF RSAs. I believe that he made you a mod on the Ottawa Yahoo forum.

    Hi to everyone who doesn't know me, I'm Ekasra or William from both SWEndirect and newcomer to the Ottawa Boards. The other major museums we have in Ottawa are the Avation and the new War museum. To bad you guys weren't coming in the winter, i'm sure the canal will be long closed by then with the weather we're having :D

    Hey Ekasra, nice to see you here :)

    I'd be happy to have dinner at The Elephant & Castle. We could ask to reserve the downstairs section and have the tables set up so we can all talk :)

    I've seen the Canal in the winter and it's very pretty but I'm glad that we'll be well into spring/summerlike weather :)

    Remember that the legal drinking age in Ontario is 19, and there will be two 15 year olds on the Ottawa side :p

    Elephant and Castle is a Resturant. There should be no age problem as long as they dont try to order drinks.
