Unfortunately, I will not be able to make it, but I am really happy something special will be happening in the wonderful city of Montreal. The only time I saw Leonard there was also my very first time seeing him ever and since that day I have been hoping for another concert. I think this will be truly wonderful, whatever it is, and I hope that everybody has a great time reflecting and appreciating.

Gosh. I hope they confirm it soon. I need to reserve the cat room for boarding 12 cats. I have to make sure to have the entire room and get it in plenty of time before other reservations are made. Also need to make a reservation for a flight and bringing one cat, and only 2 are allowed per flight in the cabin.

I feel sorry for Jarkko, he is the messenger and has to tell us that this most wanted info is being postponed. This “ we are considering September 12th” does also not sound very certain. Another delay will not surprise me. I took the gamble by booking the travel arrangements already. I sure do hope so that there will be no change in the first published dates (November 5-7). About the program I have al the confidence that it will be worth the wait.

I have my hotel booked (flexible ...) but having been caught out before I will not book my flight until after the announcement when I have my tickets in hand. It means paying more for flights because of the relatively short notice but it's no worse a position than we were in when shows were added to the Grand Tour at similar notice - or less.

Post by Jarkko a few weeks ago:

"The exhition opens for general public on Nov 9
... if you plan to be in Montreal on Nov 5-7 you may also wait until we are able to post our announcement :roll:"

***Thanks for quoting me, Wendy. Our members who will be in Montreal on Nov 5-7 don't need to wait until Nov 9 / Jarkko***

Happy to see the dates are definitive now. This means that those who have not made travel arrangements can do that now.
That leads to the following question: who is planning to attend this event? Will there be a list of participants like we had at the Hydra event?

Looking forward meeting you all again .

A list of members participating in the celebration is a good idea. I will open a locked thread on the Forum for just the names, and keep it updated with new names. Would you please email me your details (name & country). Feel free to start emailing now, but I'm not going to open the thread before the public announcement has been released. (Please send email not PM - will be easier to keep the count because of limited number of PMs you can save).

If we know the number of members coming to Montreal, we may also discuss if there is something extra we could organise ourselves.

I am wondering what the likely venue will be for the musical event. Any ideas, fellow fans?

The organizers informed us today that the correct 15% Air Canada discount code in now 9H7V2RU1. The previous one was for only 10% discount. I have edited also the original message accordingly
