Pumpkin carving contest - reminder

Happy Hallowe'en!

Just a reminder, the second annual pumpkin carving contest is less than a week away (October 28, 4pm in B9242).  We've got a fantastic contest shaping up, and I just wanted to remind everyone to email me with their pumpkin requests.  Last call for pumpkins will be Sunday at noon, with pumpkin pick-up beginning Wednesday the 28th in the morning from SSB6125.
Remember, there's prizes for first and second place, with Chris Kennedy supplying the prizes and making a $5 donation to the BCSPCA for each pumpkin donated to him.  So, not only will this be a whole lot of fun, but it will also be for a good cause!

Hope to see you all there!

Pumpkin carving!

Hello Biology Grad Students, Faculty and associates,

Hallowe'en is almost upon us, and it's time for the second annual Biology pumpkin carving contest.  The fun begins on Wednesday, October 28th, with the pumpkins arriving that morning and judging commencing at 4pm that afternoon.  Pumpkins are free this year, courtesy of the biology grad caucus, for whoever would like to carve.  Dr. Kennedy is providing prizes for first and second place and giving $5 to the BC SPCA for each carved pumpkin donated.  Judging will be by distinguished members of our department, who have yet to be asked.  All who want a pumpkin just email me with your request, so we know approximately how many pumpkins we need.

Thanks and Happy Hallowe'en!

Jennifer Trowell
