The Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences is having its 27th annual Logan day celebration on Thursday, September 16, 2010. This event is held annually in honour of Sir William Logan, the first director of the Geological Survey of Canada (GSC). Logan Day event is held on the University of Waterloo campus presented by Earth Science Graduate Association (ESGA) and all are welcome to join the festivities. It’s a great opportunity to become better acquainted with staff and faculty of the Earth and Environmental Sciences department, as well as fellow classmates!
Logan day celebration at University of Waterloo is one of the largest in Canada. Over 200 undergraduate students, graduate students, staff, professors, friends, and family turn out for an afternoon of games and sporting events. Some of the games include the traditional piezometer throw and a rock hammer toss, as well as a friendly soccer game, Frisbee challenge and a giant game of twister! The sporting events are accompanied by an all day barbecue and followed by an evening of live entertainment.
The festivities start at North Campus, field 4 located adjacent to Columbia Lake, at 1 p.m. with soccer and frisbee. The traditional and beloved piezometer throw, hammer toss and other picnic games will take place at 4 pm at the Columbia Lake picnic area. The games will be followed by a BBQ at 4:30. Then we bring the party indoors, to the Kent lounge at the Huether (59 King Street North, Waterloo) starting at 7:30 pm. Food will be provided, as well as a live band for entertainment. If you’re one of the first 50 people to arrive at the Heuther you’ll score a free drink. You could also win one of the many door prizes that will be handed out throughout the evening.
Earlier this summer, a logo contest was held to come up with a design that would set apart this year’s Logan day event from all others. We would like to thank all those who participated in this year’s logo contest. The submissions were great! Unfortunately, we can only have one winner. The winner of this year’s Logan Day logo contest selected by ESGA is Bobby Katanchi! Thank you for your hard work and creativity.
