More groups into Village II this week
The conference rooms at Village II will be jam-packed this week as several groups use the facilities at once. On the business end, the Ontario marketing school for the Life Underwriters Association of Canada began yesterday and runs until Wednesday, while a workshop sponsored by the Fields Institute for research in mathematical sciences runs until Friday.
Sports groups are also meeting at Village II: About 25 coaches and staff members of the Ontario Speed Skating School are meeting all week, as are members of Kitchener's ASAHI Judo Club.
Warrior football camp opens at the end of the week, a sure sign that the fall term is just about here.
About 100 hopefuls will suit up starting Saturday and will continue practising about four hours daily until the season opener against Western on September 9 at University Stadium.
There are no exhibition games this year; instead, there will be eight regular season games, up from seven previously. The Warriors, with four wins and three losses last year in the OUAA east, "will be tough" this year, promises assistant coach Chris Triantafilou.
"We'll definitely challenge for second or first," he says.
Feds conference report
UW's Federation of Students has been hosting a conference for student leaders all weekend. The so-called Canadian Academic Round Table wraps up today and has involved delegates from as far away as UBC and Dalhousie.
Says Feds president Jane Pak: "The purpose of the conference is to discuss, share and develop ideas and policies on academic issues."
Birthdays here and abroad
Birthday greetings go out to Gerry Schneider, engineering's associate dean of undergraduate studies.
Also celebrating birthdays on the anniversary of Hawaii's statehood: Basketball great and tell-all author Wilt Chamberlain is 59, while country crooner and fried chicken purveyor knows when to hold 'em at 57.
