Hope break went well, but Spring Quarter has started and there is a lot going on.
First up is a reminder that the Gala is this week so it's time to get your Martha Stewart on. If you have questions still about times or what you want to make talk with Nicholas or Theresa as they are on the Gala committee.
Next, Spring softball is upon us and there are just a few days left to get on the team so shout out to Doug or the elusive Lucy to get signed up. Remember that all skill levels are welcome (it's way more fun to watch Doug try to carry us all) and that you don't have to be at all the games so GET OUT THERE!!!
Thursday is Natural History trivia at the College Inn courtesy of the Burke, we haven't had much of an undergrad presence and that needs to change. We can totally beat the grads (my sources say they spend all their time at the downtown REI).
Tho interested in squaring for 101 this quarter should contact Terry (or track down one of the grads listed for a section) and find out when the TA meeting is (likely Friday @ 3:30 in one of the 101 lab rooms).
[see the CarbonCopy field for contact email addresses]
We'll be meeting this Thursday (4/1) and the next (4/8) @ 4:30 to start planning the end of the quarter events which include field trips to the Peshastin Pinnacles for practice on mapping, Brunton use, and structural geology and Mineral Gulch for pyrite, galena, rose quartz and what ever else Dylan can pan out of the creek. Both trips will be good refreshers for those headed to field camp, dates will be set when 101 sets their field trip schedule. With the end of the quarter comes the Spring BBQ which has the added complexity of finding a new location as the grassy field and racetrack have been demo-ed, the graduation slideshow, and of course elections for next years officers. At the meetings we'll go over the planning for these events and try to get those spry young folk who will be returning next year working with one of us old people being put out to pasture to make the transition to the next year easier.
Bring ideas and start gathering those photos!
