HI Everyone,

CASS has once again been accepted to be a Community Connections Partner with the Telus SPARK Science Centre. This means that we have passes that you can sign out from the office that will admit up to 6 people at once, per day. They are not to be used for staff personal use and we request that they be returned to the office within a week of sign out.

These passes include entry to dome shows, adults-only nights, and the upcoming “Circus Science under the big top” exhibit. Parking is not included with the use of the pass, and will cost $10 per vehicle. However, if you show a valid parking receipt when you use the pass, you will receive a $5 voucher to the Social Eatery or the Spark Store.

The City of Calgary is looking for feedback about allowing alcohol consumption at picnic sites. For more information, or to have your say in the matter, check out https://engage.calgary.ca/liquorinparks .

The Calgary compilation and performance of “The Democratic Set”, which was presented by this year’s High Performance Rodeo is up, at https://www.hprodeo.ca/2019/democratic-set if you would like to see yourselves, your friends, and  your collaborators on screen.
