The Medicine Hat Branch has been fairly active in the last few months, planning new types of activities to try and encourage participation from a larger segment of the membership and co-hosting as a means of sharing the cost and effort.

Branch Activities:

    • A Family BBQ and Observatory viewing for APEGGA members and their families was held at the Sunridge Observatory on 24th, rescheduled from the original date of May 3rd. The event was a great success with over 65 members and guests in attendance. The consensus is to include a family event every year in our repertoire of activities if possible.
    • The APEGGA Teacher Award for this year has been selected as Ms. Shannon Tannant of Duchess School. A presentation has been scheduled for the end of June with a celebration luncheon to follow.
    • Final plans are underway for the Annual APEGGA/ASET Golf Tournament scheduled for Aug. 17th. This event is always popular and requires a great deal of planning and work on the part of the executive.
    • The final Branch Executive meeting is scheduled for June 17th before breaking for the summer. Plans for the Annual Golf Tournament and budget preparation are on the agenda.
    • Mr. Keith Crush from the City of Medicine Hat Economic Development Department will be making a technical presentation on Wednesday, June 19th.

Upcoming Activities:

    • A branch executive meeting will be scheduled for September to plan the fall lineup of activities.
    • The branch has tentatively scheduled a plant tour for October to be held jointly with ASET.
    • A technical evening is tentatively scheduled for November. Presentation topic to be along the lines of current technology used in the geotechnic field.
