Bx3KI93CUAMXBrcWe were thrilled with how popular the event was last year and the generous support of Ad Astra members which allowed us to raise over $500 for Autism Ontario. Due to the high attendance levels we have chosen to set timed seatings for this year to accommodate everyone comfortably and safely within our event space. There will be several seatings and spots can be reserved by getting a ticket the info desk with some spots being held back for purchase at the door.

We feel that this will make for a more enjoyable experience for all those attending and allow our members to maximize their time at Ad Astra so that they can plan their participation in this event around other activities they want to do.

A limited number of spaces for each seating will be available for advance reservation through a signup sheet at the Info Desk. The remainder of the tickets for each seating will be available at the door starting 10 minutes before each seating begins. Please note: If you reserve a spot and do not show up by the time the event is starting, your space may be given away. Reserved spots do not need to be paid for in advance.

Food Allergen Alert

It is very important for people with food allergies to note that Ad Astra can not, and does not, accept any responsibility for the “potential allergy contents” of the food or drink served by the Convention. While every effort will be made to avoid cross-contamination (e.g.: peanut oil from the peanut butter cookies ending up on the chocolate chip cookies) these things can, and will, happen. It is the sole responsibility of the person with the allergies to decide if a food or drink item is “safe” for their personal allergy condition.
