Breezy, no need to rent - you can stay with us (if you don't mind cats). We live in the Lowertown area of Ottawa, fairly centrally located. This would be a great excuse for a party. We should be able to get a number of Ottawa area folkies out of the woodwork.
Steve: thanks for posting this information. Could you tell us more about the Bytown Traditional Singers group, i.e. who to contact, where they meet? If you are the Steve I recall from the Ottawa Song Circle (big guy,plays guitar) you may remember me. I used to attend, but I found I was enjoying myself less and less, even though everyone was perfectly friendly. However, like you, I definitely don't want to discourage new people from joining. It may be just what you are looking for.
I won't be able to attend at HMCS Bytown on April 27 since I will be out of town on business, but I will do my level best to be there in future. For those of you who have never been there, this is the Navy Officers Mess for National Defence Headquarters. The Crowsnest is a very congenial watering hole, with good beer on tap, and a great place for a sing around. Do you have contact details for this group too?
