Happy December!! I know that 2015 has been a very tough year for everyone in the Oil and Gas sector, and for all of those other industries that depend on O&G dollars to survive. Let's try and keep a positive attitude this holiday season, and look at ways that we can help each other: volunteering, reaching out to a (former) co-worker, smiling... Best wishes from me to you. See you in 2016!
Registration Deadline December 18th
On behalf of the 2016 Doodlespiel Committee, I would like to invite you to the 44th annual CSEG Doodlespiel. As Chairman of this year’s Doodlespiel committee I am excited to promote and participate in the 44th Doodlespiel to be held in Banff, Alberta January 22nd- 24th, 2016. The committee is already working to ensure that this year’s event will carry on the success and traditions of past Doodlespiels.
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.
Information regarding host hotels, schedule of events, draw, rules and regulations, registration and sponsorship information is now posted to the website www.doodlespiel.com.
In addition: any University Student studying geoscience in addition to membership with the CSEG may sign up to be on the Student Spare List. In the event that a team requires additional players, they may select a student from our student spare list to join their team. To either sign up for the spare list or to access the list, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
See you on January 22nd!
Matt Ng, Doodlespiel Chair
2016 Ski Spree
Registration is Open!
The CSEG Ski Spree committee would like to invite you and your family to the 49th Annual CSEG Family Ski Spree in Fairmont, B.C. to be held from February 19th – 21st, 2016! Your family will reconnect with old friends and make some new ones on this fun filled weekend! These are the memories that all families will cherish for years to come. The weekend begins with age appropriate events for everyone including games, crafts, scavenger hunts and the prestigious Grand Prix. Saturday sees everyone on the hill with ski and snowboard races for all ages and skill levels and for the younger ones there is an obstacle course and a snow snake hunt. Remember that you don’t need to race to join in the on-hill festivities. At the end of the day unwind in the Hot Springs before the Grand Family dinner.
The CSEG Family Ski Spree is an extremely popular event in the Geophysical Industry with nearly 400 attendees every year, so don’t miss your chance and reserve your spot by ensuring you do the following:
- Registration is on a first come first serve basis so send it in as soon as possible.
- Hotel Reservations will be made by the committee, on your behalf. Please ensure you include your room reservation requests with your application.
- Previous year’s room allocations are held until January 15, 2016. For those looking to upgrade their current room, the earlier you register, the better the chances of obtaining one of the handful of special rooms that become available.
Mark your calendars as this is a family event you don’t want to miss!
Registration applications are available on the CSEG Ski Spree website at www.csegskispree.com.
Sincerely, the 2016 CSEG Family Ski Spree Committee
