You may have seen this mentioned in the BPK Facebook group, but in case you didn’t, the Kin Games is a Canada-wide student-run Kinesiology conference that’s going on its 13th year. This year they’re being hosted at the University of Calgary on March 22-24, 2013.
Each year, over 600 students from over 24 Universities across Canada attend for friendly competition in sports and academics, and for the chance to socialize with Kines students from all over the country. Due to the large number of schools interested, and limited accommodations, they can only accept the first 26 schools interested. This year, teams will be composed of 24 students each.
The Kin Games Planning Committe at U of C provides attendees with food, accommodation logistics, and party and sports bookings. The attendees just have to pay for transportation, accommodations, and the registration fee, which is isn’t available yet on the Kin Games website but hopefully will be shortly.
If you would be interested in attending, let us know! The sooner a full roster of people commit, the better SFU’s chances of sending a team.
Some of you may have been involved with Science Frosh in the past. I’d tell you how much fun it is, but I actually haven’t so that would sort of make me a liar. But I know people who have, and they said it was a lot of fun!
They are still looking for volunteers to help out, either as a frosh leader or in some other capacity, so if that sounds like something you’d be interested in then sign up using ye olde web survey!
I’d like to direct your attention to that box over at the left there. That one that says meetings on top of it. Yeah, that’s the one. That’s when/where they’ll be for the fall semester. I actually had to look the room number up, but that’s the kin seminar room, if you are familiar with it. Head down the kin hallway on the 9000-level until you hit the intersection by the office, then take a right and walk past co-op. Second (I think?) door on the left.
This is where we figure out all the stuff we would like to do for the semester, so if you came out to anything last year (Roger Takahashi’s talk, Careers in BPK, the Kin Cup, Wings night, etc.) and want to help out, or give suggestions, or just chill, feel free to come out. Everyone’s always welcome.
Hey, guys! Finished your exams? Not finished, but want a break from studying? Don’t even have exams because you’re smarter than I am and took the summer off? If you answered yes to one or more of these, you should probably come to the Highland on Friday, around noon, and join us for a pint.
Lookin’ at you, everyone writing 305!
