Those wishing to play golf at Hylands Golf Club are asked to so inform the Chair, Organizing Committee, by 1st October, 2007, so that the numbers of golfers can be determined and tee times reserved.

The Reunion program will be of interest to your family and friends and the Committee suggests you include them in your plans. All will be welcome.
A room block of 50 rooms has been reserved at the Westin Hotel. We used this hotel for our Millennium Reunion and were well pleased with the standard of the rooms and service provided. It is centrally located within easy walking distance of numerous tourist attractions and co-located with a large modern shopping centre (130 stores). It is one block from the ”Byward Market“ which has hundreds of outlets of every kind: restaurants, fashion, boutiques, arts and culture, and nightlife.

Those requiring budget accommodation may wish to stay in student residences at the University of Ottawa. They offer double rooms, shared bath for $70-100 (Tel 613-562-5771).
