In case you missed it, we once again had a 50/50 draw.  Last month’s winner was Jack Scott – Congratulations!
Our 2009-2010 Research Campaign year-to-date total is up to $6,357.50 (79.5% of our goal of $8,000).
In addition to the above donors, we have another $2000 that has been pledged.  If you have pledged a donation, please send me your money so you can be added to our list.  If I haven’t already contacted you for this year’s donation, please let me know.  Please send your money into me soon as June is the end of the campaign, and then we start all over again in July.  I can take cash, cheque or credit cards, or payments can be made on-line.   I will have invoices available at the meeting, or please use the attached form. Donations can be sent to me at: 

Daniels-Wingerak Engineering Ltd.
3022 Louise Street
Saskatoon, Sk.
S7J 3L8

Donations are to be made payable to  
ASHRAE Research Canada.
On a similar issue, I am looking for some donations of items that we could potentially auction off or conduct a raffle, to raise some Research Promotion money.  This could be game tickets, concert tickets, prizes, etc... that you or your company has access to but won’t be able to use, or are willing to give up.  The donation to Research Promotion could then be made on your behalf, for the amount raised for the item.  Please let me know if you have anything we can use.
As well, we are thinking of having a new Research Promotion Fundraising Event - possibly a lobster roast.  Let me know if you would be interested.

On the other side of the Research Promotion trail, a University of Saskatchewan graduate student, Mohammad Rasouli, will be the recipient of an ASHRAE Graduate Student Grant-in-Aid.  This will be $10,000 coming back to the University, to allow Mohammad to conduct his research on Building Energy Simulation of Air-to-Air Energy Recovery Ventilators, under the supervision of ASHRAE Saskatoon member Professor Carey Simonson.  Congratulations to Carey and Mohammad!  Hopefully we will be able to get updates as this research progresses.

Thank you, and talk to you soon. □
