Hello ASHRAE Saskatoon!

Has anyone lost their marbles?  I know that these are busy times for some people, but my question isn't about that.  I got a box of ASHRAE Saskatoon Research Promotion stuff from Chris Conley and there was a container of marbles in there.  The marbles are from the ancient ASHRAE Saskatoon Marble Game for Research Promotion and I would like to know the rules for the marble game.  If you know the rules, then please let me know.

I would like to thank those who have contributed to ASHRAE research so far in this 2011-2012 year.

So far, $1,590 has been raised for ASHRAE research.  Our goal is $9,500, so we are about 16.7% of the way there.

Our Research Promotion campaign is kicking into high gear in February, thanks to Kirk Nagus, Jesse Friggstad, and Ryan MacGillivray.  These three volunteers have agreed to help me contact people to promote ASHRAE Research, but don't be surprised if you get an email from one of us inviting you to give to ASHRAE Research.  ASHRAE recently got a new motto: "Shaping Tomorrow's Built Environment Today".  The research money raised now leads to new technologies, better energy efficiency, and better use of resources tomorrow.

If you want to know more about ASHRAE Research, then please contact me.  Remember that research money raised in Canada stays in Canada.
