General Meetings

Presentations are given at the meetings on a variety of topics from speakers within the group as well as from outside sources. An open forum portion of the meeting allows members to find solutions to problems. Visitors are always welcome to attend the general meetings and meet our members.

Next Meeting

At the OPCUG March meeting we announced that we may be returning to the Canada Science & Technology Museum in April. This will NOT be the case. We will be at the Canada Aviation & Space Museum for our June meeting.
