We’re moving!!

In getting ready for our 2014 cycling season, we're moving 2 doors down on Booth Street to larger premises. The painting has been done and the carpet is going down this week. There's lots left to do and we would welcome whatever help we can get from our members. We could use help with the following:

  • Minor plumbing - for a new sink for a kitchen countertop
  • Minor electrical - for a few new outlets in the kitchen countertop area
  • Lighting - refresh existing fluorescent lighting & replace a few covers
  • Storage closet - to be along an existing wall
  • Countertop - to be installed in a sitting area for visiting members
  • Furniture - for a meeting room
  • Furniture - for our administrator's office area
  • Probably a few other items commensurate with an office move

If you can help, we'd love to hear from you - sooner rather than later!

Another OBC X-C Ski Social! Tuesday, February 25th

Hello Again! We are having another OBC Cross-country Ski Social. Please meet in the P10 parking lot at Gatineau Park at 6:15 p.m. We will ski up the Fortune Parkway and turn west at the T-junction toward the Champlain Lookout. We will meet at the Huron Cabin at about 7:15 p.m. to 7:30ish. Bring a snack wrapped in tin foil to warm up on the stove and something to drink. If you can, please bring an item to share with each other (e.g., a can of cashews, a bag of chips, an assortment of vegetables with dip). Oh my, did this work well last time!

We should stay about an hour or so, then ski back down to the cars for about 9:30ish. I will be at P10 with a grey Honda Fit (licence BKKM 039) at 6:15 p.m.. We will assembly in the parking lot and go from there.

Drop in to see us if you are skiing on your own! Take care.

George Gonis - OBC Social Director
