A little bit about the Ottawa Hungarian Community Centre. There are three entrances to the building:

  1. In the front left corner beside the special parking spots

  2. In the front right corner

  3. At the back from the parking lot

The Center is on the south side of Capital Drive which runs off Merivale just west of Slack Rd. As one enters the building from the front, there is a large meeting room where the tables will be set up. Unless the community is holding some sort of event, there will be no need for setup and tear down for each game. There are washrooms on the west wall of the building.

 

There is a stage in the hall that may be used for the Director. The windows in the hall do not point east or west so the hot morning or afternoon sun should not interfere with a comfortable temperature in the building. There is some street parking to supplement what is available on site.

 

The hall can comfortably accommodate 20 tables. There is a handful of follow-up discussions pending between the Centre, Colin, and yours truly as we approach the day of the move. Please go here to see for yourself.

  Tips on using this site

Be careful about using the Print button displayed on most pages ... the printed output may be radically different than what you are looking at on the screen.

Welcome to our new site. The features of this new location include online results that dig deeper into a game than where the results used to be displayed. Please keep the following in mind as you use this site and become more familiar with it:

  • Results: most pages have a small icon towards the top left of the screen that you can click to print the page that you are looking at. The printed output can sometimes take up many pages on your printer and, in most cases, the format will not be identical to what you are seeing on the site.
  • There are 2 buttons for looking at the Calendar:
    1. Calendar shows a line-by-line list of what is happening this month.
    2. Calendar Month shows a page with the familiar calendar month ouput

If you are on the Calendar Month page and the display is unreadable, click the icon at the top of the display that looks like a table ... box with horizontal lines, and the display will change to something more readble.

  • All pages: this site is more configurable than our previous location, such that, if you have some suggestions about what you see and how it is being displayed, please let us know as we may be able to implement something.
