There is a group of people in Ottawa whose sole purpose is to get together and do geeky things.
I had no idea.
OGSC is meant to bring together folks of the geeky persuasion from the Ottawa area. With its 19+ (age) membership, they target adults, however they do have some kid-friendly events. Wondering if you're geeky enough? They certainly do seem open to just about anyone based on their profile:
Calling all geeks! Socialites and shy; trekkies and star wars buffs; cosplayers and bookworms; fluent in MS-DOS and Objective C and those who don't even know what those are; workers, students and non-workers; alliance and horde players!There are 619 members according to their Meetup page and 24 upcoming meetups, including such things as game nights, stargazing and movie nights, nerdy speed dating :), geek garage sales (yes, please) and OMFG: the Saturday Morning All-You-Can-Eat-Cereal Cartoon Party. It's exactly how it sounds: Saturday, August 30th, you go to the Mayfair from 10am-1pm and pig out on cereal while watching Saturday morning cartoons. And you're even welcomed to go in your PJs. Who's with me????
