GGE Anniversary Gala

On the evening of Friday, October 29, right after the Geomatics Atlantic 2010 conference at the Delta Hotel in Fredericton, GGE will have a gala reunion event. We're arranging for entertainment from local musicians, and food prepared by the hotel. We'll be showing a video made entirely by our current graduate students, and hopefully a humorous skit too. At the gala, we will also be launching a book – By Any Measure: A History of Surveying and Geodesy at the University of New Brunswick – written by Wendy Wells. Click on “The Book” in the list at the left to learn more about the book and how to order it.

There'll also be an introduction to a number of previous Chairs of the department who we hope will be able to attend.

There is a cost involved to cover our expenses of $40, and booking for this gala reunion event can be made on the Geomatics Atlantic 2010 website (click to the left).
