Night 2007 - Mercury Lounge Ottawa
hosted a Yuri's Night
April 12th, 1961 Yuri Gagarin became the first
man to travel into space. To honor this event,
Yuris Night was born -- a world wide, annual,
space themed party.
This past April, 126 parties, over 36 countries,
were held in celebration of Yuri Gagarin, and
CuSEDS hosted their first Yuris Night Celebration
at the Mercury
Lounge, located in the Market, downtown Ottawa.
The night featured the talents of DJ Memetic and
artist Maki (Mix-Media HQ), the newly formed cover
band Gorgeous George, and legendary skills of
DJ Trevor Walker. While attendance was less
than hoped, the entertainment was fantastic, making
the prospect of next years Yuris Night
seem very positive.
CuSEDS would like to send a special thanks to
John Criswick and Sara Ainslie for the use of
facilities and all their support in the organization
of the event. We are looking forward to continuing
the annual party in Ottawa in the years to come.
Watch out for Yuris Night 2008!
