June, June, June! Ok, is summer here yet?

I wish everyone a safe and happy summer and I will have plenty of industry news when I return in September. Let’s keep it short and sweet...

Awards, Awards, Awards!

CSEG member Tooney Fink receives CSPG Presidents Award – for his role as the CSEG General Co-Chair for the 2008 CSEG/CSPG/CWLS Joint Annual Convention.

During the 2009 Convention, the CSPG Awards Night function featured the presentation of several awards. The 2008 CSPG President’s Award was presented by Lisa Griffith, CSPG Past President. Three bronzes by Peter Rice-Jones were given to the three 2008 Joint Annual Convention General Chairs. The CSPG bronzes are called “47 ½ Feet Deep” – perhaps a reminder of the first oil well in North America at Petrolia, in 1958. The Award announcement was also repeated at the May 21 CSPG luncheon.
