Good Morning Geographers!

Get ready because November is full of exciting events to look forward to!

i) NEWLY APPOINTED U1 Representative! First of all we at MUGS would like to offer a warm welcome and congratulations to our newly appointed U1 representative Alex Hill. Thank you to all who applied!

ii) "Geographic Information Systems Day" -- If you have not heard, GIS day is coming up next Wednesday, November 18th. To honour this wondrous day, MUGS is planning a fantastic two-part event to last the whole day:
a) First, a GIS presentation session, "Discover the INCREDIBLE world of GIS" - from 10:30am until 11:30am in Burnside 308. This session will consist of four short super-interesting GIS research presentations, perfect for geogpraphers who have a passion for the digital world!! Each talk will be approximately ten minutes long with five minutes for discussion...short but oh so sweet! Free refreshments and snacks will be served. Tell your friends and bring the storm!
b) Secondly, a GEO-CACHING CHALLENGE FOR CHARITY in the afternoon starting @1:30 pm!! You may be asking your self "what is geo-caching"? Think of it like a large scale scavenger hunt using GPS units! It is mega cool, so get in on the action: register in teams to participate in this urban scavenger-hunt-race. The minimum donation per team will be set at 10 bucks and all the money raised will be given to the winning team's charity of choice! Yummy snacks and warm refreshments will be available after the challenge, by donation. And more good news: this event is open to all departments!

To register a team please email mcgillgeography@gmail.com with the following information ASAP:
1) Your Team Name
2) Names of all your team members
3) Your department
4) Do you own or have access to an iphone or GPS enabled device?

iii) The Annual Geography Wine & Cheese -- Make sure to keep up with the listserv as we will be confirming the date for our annual "Wine & Cheese" very soon.... the tentative date is November 25th! As we always aim to promote more sustainable events, you can look forward to local delicious finger foods at this year's W&C. Mmmmm!

That's all for now!
