The Calgary Space Workers Society (CSW) was honored by a guest from Milwaukee, WI. USA. Peter Kokh the President of The Moon Society came to visit us for the Drumheller demonstration of our analog lunar habitat headquarters. The Moon Society and the CSW are working on common goals. After the demonstration some members took Peter on a tour of the world's most extensive collection of dinosaur fossils and exhibits on prehistoric life at the RoyalTyrrellMuseum in Drumheller, Alberta. Last time Michael Bakk and Peter Kokh seen each other was as speakers during the International Space Development Conference (ISDC 2007) in DallasTexas.

The CSW have moved an obstacle that will allow us to focus on what locations are available in Drumheller. We can see from the Aug 25-26 weekend that we spent at Drumheller that the people are ready to have us in. The Calgary Space Workers enjoyed the company of some land owners, media and the general public. Some of our dedicated members and our guest from Milwaukee (Peter Kokh) the president of the Moon Society displayed our analog lunar habitat and research station headquarters.
We have heard many good things of the town of Drumheller but the adjacent towns are equally friendly and are filled with great people. We had a chance to discuss possible locations with land & business owners from neighboring towns as well.
Access to property for equipment, rain water drainage and the restoration of its ancient ecology (leave it as much as possible like we find it) were the main parts of our discussion. There is still a need to visually see more of the land that is available. We attempted to look around more but our commitments to displaying our lunar research station headquarters prevailed. We will soon be able to reach agreements to accomplish our goals.
