Happy New Year! Hopefully everyone had a healthy holiday season, and that you have come up with some achievable resolutions for 2015… I am thinking something like eating chocolate for breakfast daily may be considered achievable, and mentally rewarding. In all seriousness, 2014 had a lot of positive successes for our society, and showcased our membership giving back to the community. One such case was the Women in Seismic tournament that was held in September, where $20,000 was raised for the Alberta Cancer Foundation: $15,000 from the generosity of the sponsors and players, and an additional $5,000 was donated by Fox Hollow in the name of the tournament. It is through our CSEG membership that we continue to generate goodwill for so many causes that affect our membership and our communities as a whole. I am looking forward to seeing what 2015 holds.

Doodlespiel 2015

The 43rd Annual DOODLESPIEL is scheduled for January 23-25, 2015, in Banff, Alberta.

The mandate of the Doodlespiel is to bring our industry members together promoting fellowship and competition in a unique, fun and social setting. It’s my belief that the Doodlespiel is one of the best social events our industry offers, and without the continued support of participants and sponsors the event wouldn’t be possible.

We would like to encourage participants to be present for door prizes and dinner on Friday night after registration. Cash prizes will be handed out for the team with the best costumes/team spirit.

Additional information regarding host hotels, schedule of events, draw, rules and regulations, registration and sponsorship information will be posted to the website www.doodlespiel.com when available.

Each year, the committee seeks contributions to ensure the continued success of this event. The DOODLESPIEL committee is confident that, through the continued support of our industry partners, this year’s bonspiel will continue to be a first class event. Your level of support will be acknowledged throughout the weekend by means of numerous sponsorship boards, banners, announcements, as well as being posted on the DOODLESPIEL website all year round.

Sponsorship levels are as follows:

Sheet Sponsor ($1750), Platinum Sponsor ($1200), Gold Sponsor ($750), Silver Sponsor ($500)

For questions regarding sponsorship opportunities, please contact Andreas Georgousis at andreas.geogousis@rci.rogers.com.

Without the exceptional and continued support that this event receives annually, we could not continue to provide the level of competition and fun for which the DOODLESPIEL is renowned.
