Where can an interest in genuine red tape be an asset? In the Steampunk Ottawa group of course. Stodgy civil servants and tech heads by day, dashing air pirates and adventuresses by night, we have neo-gothic parliament buildings, a science and tech museum stuffed full of steam locomotives and the Wakefield Steam train (as of this writing). No big plans yet - worse case tea and scones at my place. More to follow.

New event coming up in Ottawa

Workshop Day and Pub Night
Saturday, September 12, 2009

During the day bring your steamy ideas, materials and any personal tools you like. You can work in the garage on metal, wood or painting and in the house on art, sewing or knitting.
Then after all the hard work, we will retire to the Heart & Crown on Preston Street for some good food and drink.
For those attending the Pub Night only - please note that our reservation is for 6:00 p.m.
We will have tools for use as well and refreshments too.
Plain clothes are recommended for the workshop part. Costumes encouraged, but plain clothes are fine for the pub part.

That's hard to say.  The numbers have been steadily growing.  At the carnivale we had 37 people, however that included Toronto people. 

For this event, since the day part is free we may have more people, and then less for the evening, but you never know.

I"m guesstimating at this point about 20 people.  I'll know better closer to the day.

I had forgotten to put our address on the Facebook event page, which I have now done. That then makes a Google map attachment showing how to get there. 

You should be good to find us now.   Smiley
