BOT Kicks Off the Term

On Friday, January 8th, A-soc kicked off the Winter term by putting on a fantastic rock and roll themed BOT party. The usual engineering beginning-of-term celebration invaded the unusual venue of SCH’s festival room, complete with a live band. During Friday night’s celebration, old friends met together for the first time after a long four month co-op term and it was also the first time 8 stream frosh got to party with the A-socers.

Live music in the form of the band Sea to Sky, named after the Vancouver-to-Whistler highway link, entertained the engineering crowd with a solid mixture of covers and original tracks, and I must say it was a great change to the usual disc-played music.

After the TOOL’s arrival, safeguarded by none other than the TOOLbearers, the entire crowd of over one-hundred students was treated to the epic never-before-seen-on-A-soc 2009 frosh week video.

Afterwards, the TOOLbearers made their exit, but not before another kind of tool tried to touch the TOOL. He was, of course, promptly stopped by the TOOLbearers.

The eventual exit of the TOOL marked the end of BOT at SCH and many people left promptly to flood the bars and clubs of Waterloo and start their own beginning-of-term celebration, before the flood of work-term reports, homework, and interviews begins.

Good luck with everything in the first few weeks of the term. See you at MOT!
