Time for another update. As we head into Thanksgiving, the team is somewhat besieged with injury and/or illness, but we are managing through it. The weekend off should provide a much-needed rest, allowing further recovery. We then have a couple of days to prepare for our trip to Newfoundland to take on Memorial University in a 3-game series (October 15-17). Always a very strong team, this will give our players another good taste of CIS basketball. This will be the first time to "The Rock" for most of our team and we are planning a couple of cultural excursions during our visit.
For prospective Queen's players, we have set the date for our annual ID/Training Camp. Set aside Sunday, December 5th for a visit to the Q's campus. We have on-court sessions planned from 9:00 to 11:00am and again from 1:00 to 3:00pm. This is a great opportunity to showcase your talents, meet and work with the Q's coaches, and see the campus. Tours of our new Athletics and Recreation Centre (ARC) will be conducted between the on-court sessions. I would encourage those in Grades 10 through 12, who are interested in Q's to attend. There is no cost for the training sessions. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me directly.
Although it took me longer than planned, I now have photos from the 100th Anniversary Banquet available on-line. I threw in a great photo taken after the Alumni basketball game as well. The following address will get you there:
As Queen’s University celebrates its 100th Anniversary of Women’s Basketball we are launching a new fundraising campaign to help broaden our number of supporters. In light of our 100 years of tradition and success of women’s basketball, we would like to attract:
· 100 or more donors;
· Donating $100 or more
With an overall goal of topping the $10,000 mark
On-line donating is very easy – please visit: www.givetoqueens.ca/womensbasketball
While the campaign is called “100 for 100”, any amount is welcome and greatly appreciated – and, of course, you will be provided with an official tax receipt.

That's about it for now. Have yourself a great Thanksgiving!
