If it had been the Carleton I could have walked over from work on my lunch wearing my Carleton shirt from when they sponsored our dodgeball team.

Maybe next time.

I am more than willing to also meet up at the Carleton!  @jambongris - which days do you work from the office?

Looks like Wed, 24th @ noon.

We should probably make a reservation.   I can take care of that.

Thanks for taking care of that!  Looking forward to it.  Ed approves of the location, he likes the food there (as do I) and I'm sure he'll go beer shopping in their little store afterwards.

The 6 of us are booked 11:45 @ Mill Street - Wed Nov 24th.   (noon was already taken)

Perfect, especially since I realized I have a volunteer committment later in the afternoon that I had forgotten about!  I'll be able to make both with the earlier start time at Mill St.

Sorry to hear you won't be able to make this one, Jambongris, maybe our next one will be at the Carleton.

I know I'm a bit late to the party, but room for one more?

If anyone wants to have a small say in improvements to the active transportation networks in Ottawa:

That looks like a really nice route around the city on parkways with no cars. Unfortunately Iím training 6 days a week for the Ottawa half-marathon at the end of May and I think I would struggle to fit in a long bike ride that day.

Iíll think about it though. Maybe I can rearrange my training plan a bit.

At the very least, Iíd be happy to donate to your team if you proceed.

Hey Biochem, I havenít had any chance to organize anything on this.  Although if your still free, maybe we can meet at the Bierhalle on Scott?  @Bingeworker and Mr Ed might be available too.

Yes!  If we do Sunday, the mugs are a wee bit cheaper.

Ok.  I have to be non-commital, but I'll try and make it.

A friend just tested positive for covid.  My exposure was minimal, but out of an abundance of caution, I wonít be coming out to play tomorrow.  Sad face.
