Early retirement . . . continued

There might still be some confusion about how applications for the Special Early Retirement Program will be accepted. (And I might have added to the confusion with an unclear sentence in yesterday's Bulletin.) Here's how it goes:

Getting active this term

The winter term brochure for the campus recreation program is out from the department of athletics and recreational services, and it announces that if you want a locker in the Physical Activities Complex, today's the day you should be hustling:
Full-time student lockers may be purchased Thurs. Jan. 4 at 8:30 a.m. -- 2:30 p.m. Line up in the Red Activity Area, PAC, south end. Locker fees: 1 term $10, 2 terms $16. Starting Fri. Jan. 5 remaining lockers may be rented at the PAC receptionist's desk, PAC 2039, from 9:00 a.m. -- 12:00 noon & 1:00 -- 4:00 p.m. The cost of a locker rented on Jan. 5 or later will be $13 for one term & $19 for two terms.
Or, you can pay 50 cents a day for a locker if you need one only occasionally.

Registration for instruction programs in campus rec will start on Tuesday: pick up your registration ticket from the lower Blue South corner of the PAC between 8:30 and 1:00 on Tuesday. (Better read the brochure for all the fine print.)

What's offered? First aid, swimming, weight training, chi kung ("an ancient Chinese breathing & movement exercise system"), bicycle maintenance, social dance, skating, badminton and more.

Proposal for bus passes

News from Trish Mumby at the Federation of Students office: "There will be a very interesting Students' Council meeting on Sunday, January 7. This is an emergency meeting to discuss the issue of Kitchener Transit holding a referendum on this campus regarding a universal bus pass. This concept would add an undetermined fee to your fee statemnt, and automatically make your WatCard a Kitchener Transit bus pass. On the 7th, council will vote on the question of having the referendum on this question in February."

The students' council meeting starts at 12 noon Sunday in the multi-purpose room of the Student Life Centre.

Some brief reminders

And looking ahead in winter

Last year's Hagey Bonspiel was cancelled, but curlers are hard people to discourage. "We are hoping to run the Bonspiel once again this year, and planning to be more successful than ever," writes Steve Cook of the purchasing department. "We have scheduled the event in Ayr, for Saturday, February 17, with hopes of helping faculty and staff escape the winter blahs." Details will follow.
