    Please vote on which weekend would be best for you to travel with the Montreal Underground Knights to Ottawa for a joint activity. The poll is open till April 15th so that we have enough time to book hotel rooms and organize carpooling etc. It also gives the Ottawa Fan Force enough time to prepare for our arrival and to for us to decide together which activities might be best to offer for both groups together.

    I hope there is a good response to this as I think it would be fun to meet other fans in neighboring cities! :) Hopefully this will be the first of many joint activities with other FF.

    When voting keep in mind that only St. Jean weekend is not a long weekend in Ottawa. The other 2 dates are national holidays.

    Any of the three weekends work for me as long as I have advance notice. That's why I have the poll ending mid April so I can get the time off work.

    Now if only people would vote on which weekend, I could get things organized ;)

    I believe Victoria Day would be the best:

    here is why:

    a) it's the week-end prior to my star wars birthday day
    b) much less crowded and if we want to do some tourism we might as well avoid the crowd.

    Personally, I would be fine with a trip to the museum of technologies and the museum of natural history, but that's just me.

    Canada day is just too crowded for my taste and I fear we would have a hard time finding some fair restaurants to eat at for supper.

    then there is St-Jean Baptiste day which for me is just un-acceptable to be anywhere else then in my province ;)
    Call it a culture thing.

    I agree with your reasoning Uilmuteiz. Not to mention that the St. Jean weekend is also Grand Prix weekend here as well. I'm leaning towards Victoria Day weekend as well right now. :)

    Alright Victoria Day is around the 22nd of May right? Cause if that is so then you guys can forget me. I got my end of semester exams during that week.

    The trials of organizing a bunch of people :(

    You should have seen the Ottawa chapter trying to organizing a simple dinner :(

    Well I have a suggestion as I can see things are going to be close.

    Why don't those of us who are available go to Ottawa on the Victoria Day weekend and then those who want to go on Cananda Day can go with those of us who would like to go a second time? I'm all for going twice personally :D

    They just renovated that.

    The War Museum should have a bunch of the same guns that were used as props in the movies!

    Wasn't there a museum about transports or something like that in Ottawa? I went in 6th grade and I remember seeing a lot of trains, which then appeared really huge, but maybe it's just the fact I didn't stand 5 feet...:D

    Anyway, I think the 2 week-end idea is nice, because I just don't know where I'll be working this summer, so 1) I have to know in advance if I want to go somewhere and 2) I have to gather money first!

    I'd really like to go and meet you all.

    allright I'll go with you guys on Canada Day.

    but hopefully you won't be too much on edge for my simple bad humor of being in crowds ^-^

    all right all right, I'll see to travel light.

    I hate leaving my laptop anywhere else than on my back.

    Haa'taylir gar ogir.

    OK here is the thing.

    The Ottawa people are notoriously hard to organize :)

    I will put this same poll up on our board, and see what response we get. I cannot speak for everyone, or plan their Victoria day and Canada day for them. So give it a bit and we will see what they say.

    I may be able to come with you guys on Victoria day, it all depends on when my exams are schedules that week, and which ones. But yeah I think Canada day will be better off for me...

    Well after a lot of trouble, I've managed to get Victoria Day weekend off work. I'm not sure I'll have the same luck getting Canada Day off so I think we should probably plan on a roadtrip for May 20-22 :) Hopefully that won't be a problem for the Ottawa FF members. If it doesn't work out with them, we could still go and have fun on our own. I'll PM Minder and see what he says :)

    For myself I'd rather go up on sunday morning then come back that evening or the next day depending on the hotel issue. I will definitly go on sunday. Maybe even saturday night.
