Happy November! With November comes the DoodleTrain and the start of the holiday season… learn and play well, my friends.

Doodlespiel 2015

On behalf of the 2015 Doodlespiel Committee, I would like to invite you to the 43rd annual CSEG Doodlespiel. As Chairman of this year’s Doodlespiel committee I am excited to promote and participate in the 43rd Doodlespiel to be held in Banff from January 23rd – 25th, 2015. The committee is already working to ensure that this year’s event will carry on the success and traditions of years past.

The mandate of the Doodlespiel is to bring our industry members together promoting fellowship and competition in a unique, fun and social setting. It’s my belief that the Doodlespiel is one of the best social events our industry offers, and without the continued support of participants and sponsors the event wouldn’t be possible.

We would like to encourage participants to be present for door prizes and dinner on Friday night after registration. Cash prizes will be handed out for the team with the best costumes/team spirit.

Additional information regarding host hotels, schedule of events, draw, rules and regulations, registration and sponsorship information will be posted to the website www.doodlespiel.com when available.

Trent Olson, Chairman, 2015 CSEG Doodlespiel
