Apollo Ski/Snowboard Trip to Panorama

Hello Queers on Campus,
Could you communicate this message to the other
students from your club? The aim of this ad is not
to find a sexual partner but some roomates to share a
room in Panorama Invermere for the weekend Feb 20-22
and having fun skiing or snowboarding.
We are already twenty guys from Apollo Friends in sport
going over there for a ski/snowboard trip. However, two
people are missing to fulfill the rooms reserved. All rooms
have two single beds. The price for the whole weekend, from
Friday February 20 check in at 5 pm to Sunday Febr. 22, lift
tickets included, with access to the fitness, hot springs
etc. is $216 (gst included). We can arrange for the carpool
if you do not drive.

So, if you like sport, are in shape, and want to snowboard
or ski this weekend, send me an email. Warning: it is not
a sexual trip! If you need more info. you can meet me on
campus, I am also a student.

Poster the Campus!

Poster the campus!
We’ve created a simple set of posters to make the university more
inclusive for queer people. We’ve printed off a bunch of posters and
we’re looking for volunteers to help put them all over the campus. We’re
meeting at 5:00PM on Wednesday, February 4 in the QC office (MSC 279Q –
see our website at www.ucalgary.ca/~glass for directions). Volunteers
will go out in groups of 2 or 3 for about one hour, and then we’ll go to
the Den to celebrate. If possible, bring your own stapler.
