October 17th Minutes

Hello All,

Once again it was a very brief meeting since we had no update for the Social. However, Social stuff will become important in the next few weeks since we now have a quote on costs, so we'll keep you posted.

In other news: Dr. Maher will be doing a presentation on Wednesday October 24th at the Millennium Library in the Carol Shields Audiotorium (Second Floor) from 12:10-12:50pm. The lecture is titled:  "Scratching the Surface: An Archaeological Survey of Ancient Sikyon." The Wednesday meeting will be cancelled so we can attend this special lecture.

Reminder: We are having a pizza sale on Monday October 22nd on the second floor of Centennial from 11am-2pm.

Minutes from Wednesday's meeting

Hey Everyone,

This week was a short meeting and so there is not much to be posted news wise.

Social news: We're waiting to hear from Fraser on quotes for costs, so until then we can't do much in regard to planning the social.

Radiothon: No one showed interest in the meeting and no one contacted us about it, so we will not be participating in the radiothon. It's that time of term anyways and everyone's busy, so it's understandable.

Rumor's Night: We are only selling tickets until Friday October 19th because the money is due on the 20th. So, please, if you would like to buy tickets contact Remi or myself via, we're both on campus quite a bit and we have the tickets. They're $15.00 and we get half the proceeds and it'll be a fun night!

Shirt: We have decided that we will be putting "That's what she said" (in Latin) on a blue shirt. This idea has been popular for the past couple of years and will now finally be used!

Reminder: Tomorrow there is a special lecture in Eckhardt-Gramatte Hall from 1:30-2:30 pm. Dr. Kelly Olson will be presenting "Celluloid Cleopatras from 1899-2005," so don't miss out on this great opportunity to see a cool presentation on how Cleopatra has been portrayed in film (I unfortunately have to work).

Another cool event this week: Saturday, October 20th is National Archaeology Day! They will be having an Open Lab Day in 4C39 from 11am-4pm. It's a free event and open to everyone and you get to look at artifacts and "experience what it is like to excavate an archaeological site and to process and analyze artifacts (including ancient bones and tools). Materials from different excavations and displays of archaeology in action will be on exhibit for the public to view. A chance to indulge your inner Indiana Jones!"

Bake Sale and Other News!

Hey Everyone!

Quick news before everyone can enjoy their probably well deserved long weekend!

The Bake Sale was a huge a success and we made a profit of $245! Thank you to everyone who brought in bake goods and also a huge thanks to those who bought and donated. We had some really, really generous people which is great. All the money we raise with these pizza and bake sales help us fund our social which then means we can raise money for the Children's Hospital.

Other news:

Radiothon: The CKUW radio marathon is coming up, the form is due on October 10th. So, please, if you are interested please email us @ so we can start planning what we want to do exactly for our time slot and hand in that form.

Mini-Colloquium: The room is booked for November 16th and will be in room 1L07 from 4:00-5:00pm and we will be heading to Garbonzo's (most likely) afterwards for a pub night. We will be posting posters and advertising shortly. We will also be going to classes again to encourage people to come and watch the presentations.

Rumour's: We have tickets for Saturday October 27th for the 10:30 show. The comedian is Rory Scovel and it should be fun! Please see Remi or myself to purchase tickets which are $15.

As a final note, the UWCSA's first Pub Trivia was a success! Congrats to the winning team: Purple Cobras (Rob and Liam). Thanks to those who came out and we hope you all had fun

Cheers and have a great long weekend,

Cancelled Meeting

Hey Everyone!

Tomorrow's meeting (Oct. 3rd) is cancelled because we are having our first Bake Sale of the year. It will be on the 3rd floor of Centennial. If you have any bake goods to sell, bring them to the Common Room before 11am tomorrow or drop it off at the Bake Sale table. We'll probably run the table from 11am-2pm.

Or if you don't have any bake goods to sell, buy some bake goods! The money that we make from our bake and pizza sales goes into funding for the Social and that means it will help us raise money for the Children's Hospital!
