E-Board is Still Collecting Dues!

There has been some confusion about the Oct 31st due date. That specific due date was for National SPS membership. We are still accepting dues ($30) for the club you just won’t receive National SPS Membership. If you pay you dues now it will go to things like reimbursements for carpooling, food for the camping trip, pizza at movie nights, t-shirts etc. We still need your help to keep having all of the fun events! Please pay your dues!!!

Also no movie night 11/26.

Upcoming SPS Events!

Hello Everyone!

We are having a club meeting this Thursday February 21st in room 209, which we will be discussing exciting events coming up.

One of the events coming up is Broom Ball, with KME and CSS. Broom ball is a sport where everybody goes to an ice rink and plays hockey with broomsticks and a ball (no ice skates).
The night of broom ball is Friday night, technically Saturday morning at 12:00 am. Broom ball will be 10 dollars per person, you can carpool with the club at 12:00 am or show up at the rink with your money.
We will also be having Science cafe on March 8th at 7:00 pm at Applebees on Grand. Science Cafe is an event where a guest speaker and students discuss science over food and drink. Our speaker will be Dr. Mallinckrodt and he will be discussing black holes.
The first weekend of Spring break the physics club will be going to Joshua Tree for our annual camping trip. The deadline to sign up for the trip is March 1st either in the club room or on Facebook.
Movie Nights will be on Wednesday at 7:00 pm.
Before the meeting the Physics department will be having a research open house where you will be able to see what all the professors are working on in their labs.

Hope to see you all at the meeting.
Thank You
