5th CSGS Beach Volleyball Tournament

Feeling summer? Do you want to escape to the beach, but don't want to get more than a kilometre away from your desk? Have you thought on a Friday afternoon you'd rather be out in the sun bouncing things?

8th Annual CSGS Golf Tournament!

Hi Everyone!

The time has come for the 8th annual CSGS golf tournament.

8th Annual CSGS Golf Tournament8th Annual CSGS Golf Tournament

The tournament gives grad students a chance to get outside (remember your sunscreen), meet each other and enjoy a new (or maybe familiar) experience. Skill is not a problem since we play on teams, in a Texas Scramble format, with new and experienced players working together and this is a easy way to get introduced to the game of golf.

The tournament is open to all members of CSGS, all CPSC faculty members, post-docs and staff and their guests.

This year, the tournament is scheduled for Thursday, July 4, 2013 at the McCall Lake 9-hole Par 3 Golf Course. Our first tee time is at 10:50 and we will need to arrive at the golf course around 10:00am.
