Nah. It is the new venue for sure.

Overall: good. Quieter than The Working Centre for sure.

If I understood him correctly, John Kerr mentioned that they have a larger
I think there were a couple of spare unused chairs, but the spare space to
put them
was not that available.

the room was either hot (if the door was closed) or noisy (if not).

At the end of the meeting the girl came in and adjusted the A/C, but it was
too late. I think we can do that earlier and get decent temperature.

The signs said "1 hour parking from 8 am to 6 pm" and no mention
on what happens after 6 pm, so I assumed it is fine to park there.

I parked across the street from the hotel and did not get ticketed.

Others I talked to parked by the Value Mart a couple of blocks south, where
there is ample parking. I would do that in good weather.

I was surprised that there were no ring-and-post parking for bikes

And thanks to John Van Ostrand for getting the projecter fast. Perhaps John
can bring it every time, or the TWC guys can do that.
