2017 LITW: The Canada 150 Edition

Date: July 16, 2017 at 1 p.m.
Location: Strathcona Park Ottawa

This year LITW will be held at Strathcona Park on Sunday July 16 @ 13:00 (1:00pm) rain or shine.

This is a casual, family oriented event. Bring kids, significant others, devices, laptops, battery operated projects, autonomous vehicle (not a flying machine), submersible rover, camera, or whatever suits your fancy.

Bring some food to share and a fun attitude. Past experience indicates that the squirrels are friendly and the gulls are voracious.

The board will bring a cooler of pop/juice/water, some paper plates, utensils, paper towels and anything else we think would be a good idea.

If you are planning on attending, please RSVP to the board with a count of how many people you are bringing so we have an idea as to how much to bring.

Looking forward to another successful LITW and we will see you there!
