With all that in mind, the 99s are getting social! Starting March 22nd, join the First Canadian Chapter in kicking off the new monthly social; a casual gathering where you can make new friends, catch up with old ones, and discuss anything –  from aviation to what you got up to last weekend. We’d love to see you there! Come support your chapter and connect with friends old and new.
 
The pub is located in Markham near Buttonville airport. It’s easily accessible via public transport and there will be plenty of parking available on site as well. You don’t need to register to attend the socials but if you let us know roughly how many people in your party are planning to attend, that helps us prepare the venue ahead of time.
