Same old thing

Hey all, as another fortnight draws to a close, and the summer heat sets in, it’s time for another update. There hasn’t been all that much going on recently, but I’ll update you on what little has happened. Hopefully everyone with hell week made it through intact, and for those of you poor souls who still have exams, ‘good luck’.

Since the Square system isn’t up and running in Novelties yet, I postponed the fire sale. Square will, however, be set up by the end of this week, allowing you to pay for Novelties ware with credit cards! We will of course still be accepting cash, so feel free to come by. Highlight items include the Ridgid Tool USB Key (the Tool just celebrated its 50th birthday!), a classy EngSoc branded ceramic mug, and Ridgid Tool Sweatpants. If you’re interested, stop by sometime this week between 11:30 and 13:30 any day.

Coveralls have been ordered, and will hopefully be received by the end of the month, so to all those who bought covvies, check back often! Also pay attention to the date of the upcoming Fire Sale, as it will be a great chance to snag some sweet patches really cheaply.

RidgidWare is now carrying Raspberry Pis. Come in and get yours today before they run out! Students of MTE 220 can now also pay for their spare parts in RidgidWare (which means you can use credit cards if the amount is over $1.00).

A very very huge shout-out to MATT POST for fixing the POETS projector so we can back to our irregularly scheduled programming. The man knows his way around a projector ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) . Also in POETS, the sleepover is happening this weekend, so bring your friends and your sleeping bags for some post-midterm relaxation. We will be running board games, music, movies, and maybe even a surprise guest appearance by a Wii with Melee and Brawl.

Sponsorship allocations have been finalized and are awaiting approval at council. Come to our next meeting to see if you got what you wanted, or if you’re interested in seeing how we spend our money. Big shout-out to the sponsorship committee members for giving up half of their Saturday for watching presentations and allocating all that money.

Last, but definitely not least, the Joint Annual General Meeting (JAGM) is happening this Saturday, where we will be discussing such thrilling topics as an EngSoc fee increase. If you feel strongly about anything discussed at JAGM, please come out and talk about it. Every undergraduate engineering student can attend and has voting and speaking rights on all issues, not just class reps. Encourage your classmates and friends to come too. (FREE FOOD).

Signing off for now! If you have a burning question, comment, or insult, feel free to stop by Wednesday mornings between 8:30 and 13:00 for my office hours. I’m always happy to have visitors.
