    How would the gathering group feel about an Ottawa area Christmas dinner sometime in the next few weeks? I know we're just getting off the ground but many of us have yet to meet and what a better time to get together than over the Christmas break! My reenactment group always does this for veterans and new and old members as a get to know each other thing where we sit down over a meal, always one of the nicer more personal events when we aren't shooting at each other with MG42's, Bren Guns and the like ;) Just a thought would be nice to plan out a direction to take the group and get to know everyone.

    Sure, if you want. Wouldn't be hard. Is there a mailing list yet? The big problem will be deciding on a place to go and I have a biased towards Lindenhauf ;)

    Yep there is a mailing list, Ill try to get you on it when I get home.

    Suggestions on where and when?

    Keep in mind that the mailing list is more effective when advertising events, as its active instead of passive. So we can post things here, but the Mailing list will get more results.

    For those that didn't recieve the email.


    It would be nice to get together sometime before Christmas so those of us who haven't met yet can get acquainted with each other and also we can plan a direction for the group. I was thinking the evening of Friday the 16th? I don't know what kind of food everyone likes; I personally enjoy the Lindenhauf which is a German restaurant near Carling Wood and Baseline. If you would like to participate please send me an email or PM and let me know if this date is good or if you'd like another one chosen and same goes for the restaurant.

    Yeah, no, I can't go. I'm fully booked every day over the holidays, either exams, working, or I'm back home.

    I would suggest 19:00 (7pm) on the 16th. If that?s too late let me know. You should expect to spend around ~$20 on the food (a little under or over) and a bit more on wine, German beer or sody pop. I?ll make the reservation under "Fan Force Club" as sugested. Here?s the address and phone number for map quest and you can call if you want specifics on their menu.

    I'm working that night, but I just found (or rather rediscovered, as I remember posting here once a long time ago) the Ottawa board. I hope they'll be another get together not too far in the future.
