Paint the day away

Coming Out week is next week but festivities begin today with a poster painting party in Rm. 315 of the University Community Centre. The week includes a coming out discussion on Monday at 4:30 p.m. as well as a safe sex workshop. For further information call the Queer Line.

A run for the money

Interested participants can come out and show their support for the 3rd Annual CIBC Run for the Cure being held this Sunday at Springbank Park.

Patricia Stark, assistant run director for London, said participants must register at 8 a.m. for the race beginning at 10 a.m.. People will also be given the option of a five-kilometre run or walk, or a one kilometre walk.

There will also be many door prizes given out during the day including YMCA memberships and trips for two with accomodation, Stark said. Ford and NIKE will also be providing the grand prizes for individuals and schools who raise the most money for this cause.

Pooling all resources

While homecoming festivities will dominate this weekend for many Mustang faithfuls, a handful of Western's pool aficionados will be racking them up to raise money for charity at this weekend's Gene Pool 10-hour billiards marathon.

This event will be taking place tomorrow at four London pool locations from 12 noon to 10 p.m.. Featured activities will include a variety of demonstrations and tips from local pool champions and billiards entertainers, as well as games, contests and prizes throughout the day.

Pledge sheets are available from Hustlers Billiards, Strokers Billiards, Kipps Lane Billiards and Palisad Billiards. Spots are reserved for those collecting a minimum of $30 in pledges, with proceeds going to the Canadian Diabetes Association.

Heading to another post

Western students will no longer be able to find the post office in the atrium of the University Community Centre.

The stand-alone post office is currently in the process of relocating downstairs to become a part of the Imprint Copy Centre and is scheduled to be fully operational by Monday.

Jim Walden, the general manager of the USC, said "Canada Post has changed their policy and that as a precondition to their agreement, franchise stand-alone postal outlets must be integral with other primary businesses".

The university originally had plans to incorporate the post office into the new corridor of the UCC he said, adding the only alternative was to include the post office in Imprint.

Correction

In yesterday's Gazette, a statement that Sleeman's brewery is providing Huron College with a volume pricing deal on beer was inaccurately attributed to Gerry Liddy of Sleeman's.
The Gazette regrets the error.
