I’m just taking a look at all of the upcoming events… golf tournaments (T-Wave, DoodleBug and Women in Seismic) and of course, the GeoConvention… just a friendly reminder that if you haven’t renewed your CSEG membership and are planning on playing/attending, there’s a significant discount on fees for these events if you are a CSEG member. See! Membership does have its privileges… even beyond receiving The RECORDER.
Off my CSEG soapbox now… am going to see if any spring flowers are popping up yet.
46th Annual Family Ski Spree
The Ski Spree was held the weekend of February 24th in beautiful Fairmont B.C. This sold-out event saw more than 350 participants enjoy family events and skiing at Fairmont Hot Springs Resort.
The awards dinner was filled with many happy faces as ski prizes were handed out to young and old alike and Zoe and Sheldon Ferguson received the coveted honour of being named Mr. and Mrs. Ski Spree for all the work they have done over the years.
Karen Webster, Ski Spree Chairman, is pleased to announce that over $2600 was raised that night for the Alberta Children’s Hospital. She would also like to thank all the sponsors for without them this event would not be the great success that it is.
The Ski Spree Committee hopes to see you at this fun family event next year.

SAVE THE DATE: Women in Seismic Golf Tournament
The Women in Seismic (WiSE) Golf Tournament was started in 2000 to allow women in the Seismic industry an opportunity to network and socialize with their peers. Our entrants are from all parts of the industry: geophysicists, geologists, technical staff, processors, copy houses, management, sales and support staff from service companies. Recently, the tournament has involved raising money for the Alberta Cancer Foundation (Breast Cancer). This year we are donating all proceeds to both Breast Cancer and Ovarian Cancer. With the support of corporate and personal donations, WiSe has raised over $60,000 in the past few years.
Please keep Thursday, September 12th, 2013 open for the WiSE Golf tournament. We will be holding the tournament once again at Fox Hollow in Calgary. Registration and sponsorship information will be released soon. If you would like to volunteer on the WiSE Committee, please contact Joanne Poloway at joanne.poloway@ sigmaex.com.
