Important news concerning our guest speakers for the meeting on the 10th, and quite a few membership renewals are due.


The Turcot Sector will be the worst, of course. If you have to get through this disaster zone, be sure to consult before you leave home.

This site will show the construction sites on the island:

It is expected that René-Lévesque will be heavily used as an alternate, so keep that in mind also.

Stay abreast of the closures by using Waze or Google Maps, which will be updated with the road closures. Assuming, of course, that they can keep up with Montreal’s deconstruction!

We have a meeting coming up on the 15th.  Your attendance is important because we will be planning the November book/craft fair event, and also the programming for 2018.

Sunday, October 15
Grand Salon, Hôtel Espresso, 1005 Guy St. , Downtown Montreal
MEETING THEME: Halloween approaches! Don your favourite ghoulish costume, or carve a Jack-O-Lantern for the display table!

SUNDAY SCI-FI CINEMA MATINÉE   In keeping with the topic of this afternoon’s lead presentation, we offer a choice of films featuring Victorian characters and settings!

THE SCIENTIFIC ROMANCE: The so-called scientific romances of the 19th century (and earlier)—often repurposed today as Steampunk—are what science fiction stories were called before the term science fiction was coined. We examine our favourite Genre from this Victorian perspective.

Planning the November book sale / craft fair

March Impulse is on line

The March 2017 edition of Impulse is now available on line. Our thanks to Impulse editor,  Keith Braithwaite!

One quick update: There are two suggestions for the May field trip. In Impulse, read about the trip to the Ecomuseum in Ste-Anne de Bellevue.

The CSI Investigation at the Science Museum, Old Port was suggested at the February meeting.

Can You Crack the Case?

You enter a crime scene, and you must lead the investigation. Based on the hit American series, CSI: The Experience is an adventure into the world of criminalistics. Record evidence, compare it to what real investigators have collected, and pursue your investigation at the crime lab with the help of forensic medicine. Solve the crime in this highly interactive investigation by comparing tire tracks, performing blood spatter and DNA analysis, and learning about forensic anthropology and toxicology.

We could start with the 3D movie on humpback whales at 10 AM, (Star Trek, connection!)
