Big, Furry and Beautiful
IN CANADA'S CAPITAL
Getting cave/cabin fever from isolating at home? We know you miss socializing with your fellow bears so we’re moving the weekly Bear Hydration online!
Every Sunday afternoon @ 3:30pm (our usual bear coffee time) and also Wednesday evening @ 7:30 pm join us for a free online video chat.
Get your favourite snack and/or beverage and log in to meet up with your fellow bears.
New: For the best experience use a PC or Mac with a webcam and a headset or microphone and install the Discord program.
If you don’t have a computer you can use your smartphone by installing the the Discord app. It works on iPhone and Android.
Once you’ve installed Discord and created an account, click here to be taken to the Ottawa Bears Discord server.
There are currently two text-chat channels (#bear-chat and #hot-bears-of-internet) and two voice/video channels (Bear Talk and Gaymer Bears). We will meet up in Bear Talk at the scheduled time.
Any of these channels can be used anytime of the day so feel free to drop in and chat with whoever else is on. For best results, leave your phone or PC/Mac logged in all the time so others will have someone to chat with.
See you online!
As much as it pains us to do this we have decided to suspend all upcoming activities until further notice in the face of mounting concern over the novel coronavirus/COVID-19.
This includes Bear Hydration (bear coffee), games nights and Bear Feedings but we are still working on plans for the Bears in the Woods event in July in the hopes that it will be safe by then to venture out.
Stay tuned via our website or social media as this is where we will be posting about any further cancellations or updates.
Our members’ health and safety is our highest concern. This calamity will soon pass and we will let you know when we are ready to resume get togethers.
*Note: As of 3/12/2020 many of the Ottawa Bears group activities have been suspended to protect our members from COVID-19 exposure. Consult the club’s event calendar to confirm before coming out to one of our events.
In this difficult time of social isolation we have come up with a helpful solution to allow bears in Ottawa to keep in contact with each other.
We have created a Discord server that can be used to text and voice chat anytime of day.
