Happy GeoConvention month!

I have had the entertaining image of Larry Lines singing “When I’m 64” in front of an audience of 200 of his peers in my head for the past month. For those who were(n’t) at the awards luncheon at the Symposium, Larry burst into the Beatles song after he won the CSEG Special Commendation… and then proceeded to state “No applause… just send papers”. He’s such a great Journal Editor… please contact him directly if you’d like to submit a peer-reviewed paper or for more information: lrlines@ucalgary.ca. He really does need your help to make the Journal successful...

Doodlebug 2013 Details!

On behalf of the 2013 Doodlebug Committee, I would like to invite you to the 61st annual Doodlebug Golf Tournament. This year’s tournament will once again be held at the Kimberley Alpine Resort with the golf event taking place at the nearby Trickle Creek Golf Course. This year’s event dates are August 22-24, 2013.

The Doodlebug Golf Tournament is an event held each summer that provides a competitive yet fun golf venue for CSEG members of all levels and ability, from scratch golfers to true first-timers. Golfers are put in “Flights” based off of their handicaps with the goal of having a competitive and fun round of golf regardless of ability. Guests and spouses can choose from a full schedule of formal and informal social events throughout each day and on into the evenings.

Each year there is a charitable aspect to the Doodlebug event. This year, we are supporting a local cause that is important to the town of Kimberley. We will be supporting a young teenage girl named Jenna Homeniuk and her family as she recovers from an aggressive form of Leukemia and a recent bone marrow transplant. The Doodlebug committee is pleased to support Jenna and her family and is honoured to give back to a community that has been so welcoming to the Doodlebug.

For registration and sponsorship opportunities, please go to www.doodlebuggolf.ca We look forward to seeing you in Kimberley!

Mark Watson,
Chairman, 2013 Doodlebug Golf Tournament

SAVE THE DATE: Geophysical Industry Field Trip (GIFT)

The CSEG Foundation’s Geophysical Industry Field Trip is designed to supplement academic education by introducing undergraduate geoscience students into the world of professional geophysics. This is accomplished by touring 4 prominent companies that use seismic in the oil and gas industry. These companies will provide technical presentations in their respective specializations which will include; seismic survey design, acquisition, processing, and interpretation. GIFT has also been extended to include a geology-focused hike in Canmore guided by professionals. Students will gain perspective on the various career opportunities within the field of geophysics, and it will help bridge the gap between ones education and the work they will be performing after they graduate.

The Geophysical Industry Field Trip has evolved into a 3 day event that will be held on June 6th - 7th, 2013 in Calgary, and June 8th in Canmore. Registration is now open and available on the CSEG website. For sponsorship opportunities or any questions, please contact usofieldtrip@cseg.ca.
