1. Unofficial Trivia @ Gerts!
Come by next Tuesday (Oct.11) from 8 - 11pm after a stomach full of turkey/tofurky(?) and fill
your mind with trivial Geography facts for our Gerts Trivia night!

So come by to see your execs and fellow geographers in a different (I literally don't recognize some of you without the GIC/Burnside-basement glow).

Check out our cool Facebook event for more info, and hope to see many of you there :)



2. Apple Picking / MUGS mugs  Apple picking, who knew it would be the event of the year. Seeing as Apples are "In" this year, and we have limited seating on the bus, if you come to our tabling hours

(2 - 6pm thursday/tomorrow, 12 - 2pm Friday) in the GIC and an exec says there're no more tickets, check out the 211 bus departing from Lionel Groulx (it'll be longer, though you could still attend the event!).

Also MUGS mugs will be on sale at these tabling hours! Here's some new wave technology that explains the mugs better than I could in words (A MUGS Mug that spells MUGS in mugs....*Phew*)



3. Mentorship
The Deadlines have been extended! So, promoting (like last week) the splendid peer mentorship program, which will be more diverse than ever, and include not only Geography mentees, though even Urban Planners, etc.! Click here to sign up and for any further questions contact us on our webpage, or email us.



4. Field Notes Editors Needed!

Want to get more involved and learn more about the brilliant essays written by fellow undergrads? Here's a summary from our current field notes editor about the two open positions and what they do:

"Field Notes editors will act on a small team to select essays that fit in the yearly journal theme. The editors will be responsible for reviewing and editing undergraduate essays, while the Editor In Chief will act as an operations manager to ensure smooth printing, secure funds, and arrangement of release party."

Applications due by Oct. 23rd

General Editor Position Requirements include: a CV and a short (1-2pg) writing sample

Editor in Chief Position requirements include: a CV and a short (1-2pg) writing sample and a cover page explaining why they're keen on being the Editor in chief (asides from the obviously cool "commander-in-chief-esque" title).



5. Crawlable(?) Apartments Needed


The infamous Geography Apartment Crawl is in the works of becoming a reality! Without disclosing too much, we need your help to get there. If you believe your apartment's not too far (we're geographers, though even Columbus couldn't find India... and no one wants to be in Laval at 2am), and spacious enough to accommodate a bunch of us, please email us  and give us some details to become part of this wondrous event!



6. MUGS Lounge Clean Up

So, if you didn't realize your Execs have cleaned up the MUGS lounge last weekend! We've cleaned up myriad of wondrous (and not-so-wondrous) things which we've piled elegantly on a table in the MUGS lounge (except for a pack of lube... which we threw out... we're sorry(?) to whoever this is). Please take what is yours in the very new future, or it will be thrown out / claimed by dumpster-diving MUGS execs.



7. Women's Health Advocacy Group McGill

Plugging another important McGill Group, check it out!

"The McGill Women's Health Advocacy Club is currently recruiting new members! If you are interested in the health issues affecting roughly half the world's population, or passionate about the various ways in which women's health issues intersect with other aspects of their lives, then check out their Facebook page  and inquire about their new club."



8. Cool Thing of the Week!

It's not Geography related, it's not even from this year. it's just thanksgiving themed, and an old alumni who's taken some geog courses lookin cute with his family in a fall/thanksgiving scenario... it's been a busy week...



9. Mildly Interesting Map of the Week

It's a U.S. map, though it's in the spirit of Thanksgiving and is a pretty intense stat (Sentient Turkey revolution anyone?) This image isn't the prettiest, though check out Esri's interactive story-map  for a better view and additional maps on thanksgiving staples and where they're from (in the U.S.).



There you have it. 

MUGS is thankful this year to have such a great Geography community (<3), and we hope you have a great feast and enjoy a well deserved break (well, one extra day... it's the thought that counts).
