Hello Richard,

Thanks for contacting Scott. And thanks to Scott for offering to use the facilities indeed. 

In my opinion too, Carleton makes a lot of sense, because we have the facilities and we come close to people who would be interested. I also believe that if both Carleton University and our  Local Chapter have common goals and everyone has something to win with  teaming up.
Organizing the event in the evening would be indeed, since many of us have professional obligations during the day.

+1 For having the event at Carleton University.

Fellow members, your opinions?

 Hi Folks,
 While I was at Carleton University today, stopped in & spoke with Scott
 Mitchell about our fall events. Summary below, please note that we would
 need to formally follow up on some of these items. Putting them forward for
 discussion etc.
 - We can certainly use the computer lab facilities (larger one holds approx
 35 with additional space for laptop users) & more than likely one of the
 conference rooms. We will need to go through Scott to request these.
 - No glaring issues why we couldn't do the balloon mapping but we would need
 to follow with university. One key discussion was disclaimer forms for those
 (students/others) participating in outdoor activities (balloon
 mapping/openstreetmap). Scott has offered to dig up the universities field
 trip forms if we ask.
 - GIS Day this year at Carleton is going to be given more attention than
 previous years by active staff wanting to promote it. GIS day falls on
 Wednesday Nov 20th; during Geographic Awareness Week. We should consider the
 possibility of having our event in the evening. We would have a lot of
 interested individuals on campus already. If someone was available to
 represent OSGeo during the day (I may depending on work schedule), we could
 set up a booth.
 - In terms of software freedom day, we would have the same options available
 to us to request.
 I'd like to thank Scott for offering the use of the facilities.
 The sooner we can finalize the location the easier it will be to get things
 rolling. IMHO, we should certainly be making use of Carleton's facilities. I
 vote for an evening workshop on GIS Day.
 Very much looking forward to our fall events!
