Fall 2017 Meeting Time Doodle Poll

The BPKSA meets once a week to discuss upcoming events, clothing sales, and lots of other things. If you are interested in coming to the meetings during the fall semester, please fill out the doodle poll by Tuesday Sept. 5th at 11:59pm and we’ll pick the time where the most students can make it. It’s a great way to get involved and connect with other students in BPK. If you have any questions, email us at bpksa@sfu.ca.

 

Fall meetings

Sup, BPK.

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.

Operation: Delicious Wings – Successful

Well, we went to Wings, and it was pretty tasty. We had room for 20 people, and somehow had exactly 20 show up, so that worked out pretty nicely. As promised, the BPKSA bought everyone who showed up a pound of wings, though we were totally awful at figuring out which order was whose. They all sort of look the same, you know? In any case, it was a good time, and big thanks to Wings for accommodating such a large group on a busy night.

At this week’s meeting, we (and that’s the royal we, since I had to miss it) decided next up will be a Chief hike. We’re tentatively aiming for Sunday July 15th, but we’ll see what kind of timetable works for people and go from there.

Our meeting next week (Monday, July 2nd) will be in AQ 5037, instead of the usual AQ 5038. This will also be the case on July 9th. I guess there’s a midterm or an intersession exam scheduled in there or something like that. Hope to see you there!

Now, enjoy a couple photos from Sunday night. If I had a real camera these would look more impressive, but I don’t, so deal with it. On a related note, if you have a sweet camera you should totally come to all our events!

Summer events

At today’s meeting we discussed some of the things that we felt would be fun to do over the summer. We have a few hundred dollars in core funding from the SFSS to make them happen. This is money that we have to give back if we don’t use, so we can definitely make things cheaper/free for people who want to go to them.

Ideas?

  • Barbecue at SFU
  • Dinner (wings? sushi?)
  • Hiking
  • Rock climbing
  • Movie night (since we can get cheap tickets from the SFSS!)
  • Kayaking

Anything else you guys would want to do as a group over the summer?

Summer 2012 meetings

Meetings for the summer term are scheduled for 12:30 on Mondays in AQ 5038. It’s a tutorial room on the northwest corner at the top of the AQ, and on nice days it has a sweet view.

I’ve been thinking about the whole weekly vs. bi-weekly thing with respect to our reduced activity over the summer, and I think I’ll probably go weekly anyway just to get a break from things. If we don’t have anything of importance to discuss we can always just chill outside and enjoy the weather.

To that end, I’ll try to get meeting agendas out early so that you can decide whether to show or not, if you’d be otherwise busy that week.

Meeting minutes

Okay well that was a lot of work and took quite a long time, but now all of the meeting minutes as of the 2009-2010 semester are available online. The reason that I went to the trouble of manually copying them over and reformatting them (and I cannot emphasize enough how much it sucked to do this) is because now they’re searchable. So, if you want to see what kind of discussion we had regarding the Year End Party in a given year, you can probably search for “year end party 2011” and… hopefully it’ll work.
