Welcome Back Barbecue

Next Thursday, (September 13th) from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm, we’d like to invite you to come celebrate being a part of BPK at the Welcome Back Barbecue. It’s in the courtyard downstairs between kin and physics. If you’re at the intersection by the 142 lab on the 8000 level, turn right and head out the double doors at the end of the hallway.

With a minimum donation of $3.00 you can get yourself a tasty lunch (beef or veggie burger, drink, snacks) and support the Terry Fox Foundation at the same time. Since Terry was an undergraduate in Kinesiology before he began his Marathon of Hope, supporting his legacy has always been important to the department.

Please fill out the web form so that enough food is purchased for the event. It’s a short survey, promise, I just filled it out. It asks if you’d like a beef burger or a veggie burger. That’s it.

While you’re there, consider signing up for Team BPK for SFU’s annual Terry Fox Run. BPK has had the biggest team the last couple of years and we’d like it to stay that way.

You should join us at the pub. Yes, YOU.

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!

The Whale screening / fundraiser

Some time ago we were approached by a student of BPK and dance, Jana Jacques, who’s been working with another student, Meredith Page, on a research study investigating the exercise and fitness habits of dancers. They’ve been asked to present at an international conference (held this year in Singapore) and are attempting to raise money to help out with their travel. It’s a pretty impressive educational opportunity for a couple of our fellow undergraduates.

They’ve created a Facebook event for their fundraiser which will include a screening of the Whale, baked goodies, and a raffle/auction. It’s on Sunday, August 5th, at the Anza Club. Doors at 5, screening starts at 6!

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!

You’d like dinner? With us? At Wings? How convenient!


Moved today’s meeting outside into the AQ gardens to enjoy the beautiful weather. In addition to discussing and budgeting out some of the upcoming things we’d like to do, we settled on our first get-together of the summer: dinner at Wings! Congratulations Shirtina, your single-minded pursuit of devouring chickens was successful in inspiring us.

We’re gonna hit up the Wings on North/Lougheed on Sunday, June 24th, around 7:00pm. Join us and your first pound of wings is on us! Vegetarian? That’s cool. Buy something else and we’ll pay what a pound of wings would’ve cost you toward whatever else you get, instead.

We’ll throw an event invitation up on Facebook to figure out who’s interested. Don’t say your friends in the BPKSA never did anything for you!
