Hello All

Well if this is my introduction in to the cartotalk I had better make it a good one. To start off I was born in Prince Albert Saskatchewan. I had a peaceful childhood where I have many fond memories, let me tell you about a few. It was the summer of 1980 and the weather was beautiful it was a great day to be on the beach..… JUST KIDDING

Let's start again, my name is Shannon Brassard but for some reasan I have chosen Sonnet as my screen name, and I am a recent graduate from the Cartography program at COGS. My journey to COGS was a long one. I have a diploma in Adventure Tourism and Outdoor Recreation, from Lakeland Collage in Vermillion Alberta and a few years of a Physical Geography Degree (one day I will finish) from the University of Saskatchewan. I am about to start my first official job as a cartographer with a short term contract with the Nova Scotian gov’t.

hi Shannon,

welcome to CartoTalk. i was about to go to COGS but decided to go to SSFC b/c it was closer to home. but i have heard many good things about COGS. some people from my work went there and they all have good things to say about it.

Hi Shannon,

Does Les Parsons still instruct Outdoor Recreation at Lakeland College? Les and I started Orienteering at about the same time in Edmonton ....long ago! Last summer I was actually considering entering a team in the adventure race put on by the College, figuring we could clean up on the orienteering, even if we couldn't paddle or bike ;) I guess Les would have been the organizer, assuming he's still there....

I also have old friends just outside PA, but that's another story :rolleyes:

Cheers and welcome to Cartotalk. :)
