I. Upcoming Events and Trips

1) Yoga with the VOC, Continuous
A yoga class is being lead by a former VOCer Monday nights at 6pm in the SUB. $5 suggested donation. All money raised will go to a great non-profit started by a UBC student to rebuild a children's aid organization in Nigeria.

II. Journal Editing Workhike, March 13

For all you slackers who claiming there arenít any workhikes, from the Journal Editor:
The printer deadline for the journal is coming up REALLY soon! I will need your help to get that last editing crunch in before the Monday, March 16th deadline. The type of editing you can volunteer for varies but includes proof-reading already edited articles for typos, criticizing my Journal layout, fixing levels of photos, and fully editing last minute articles. I think that the best way of doing this is to share a pitcher of beer (or tea) at a great big table, thus minimizing internet static and email faff.

Bring your laptop and your thinking cap. Please sign up on the wiki - but remember that by doing so you are committing yourself to those few hours next Friday. I cannot do this alone, and I cannot pull the weight for people who bail out last minute. You don't have to be an English student to be a good editor - You just need to have a fine set of eyes to spot the stuff I missed.

III. Call for Executives

Who runs this club anyways? The VOC executive, more-or-less - and that could be you. Believe it or not, most of the exec are not chest-beating hardmen - in fact, mostly we're just a bunch of people who had a good time in the club last year and want to give something back. You don't need to be an expert at anything, other than donating your time and effort - these are mostly organizational roles (although experience, of course, helps).
Check out the link to see what positions you might be interested in.

IV. Ms. Manners

Dear Ms Manners

Help! I bought these ski boots with the fancy moldable liners and I
was warned that they would make my feet smell bad after awhile, but I
never expected anything this bad. Last weekend my girlfriend wouldn't
even let me into the tent, and it's my tent! And my feet are starting
to dissolve. Tell me what I can do to deal with this terrible and
extremely embarrassing medical problem.

Dear Stinkyfeet

Have no fear, Ms Manners has a solution, in fact she has a whole gallon. Talk to President Veenstra because he has found a wondrous all natural product containing vitamins and herbal supplements, and guaranteed to make your feet stop rotting immediately and also cures impotence and other problems* which we won't go into here. If you supply a suitable container and make other financial arrangements, our President can supply this wondrous substance. Or you can buy it from Acklands, but beware you'll have to lie because they are a wholesaler and they won't deal with mere customers, and they only have the one gallon and two gallon sizes. And you need to know the part number.
