“As The University of British Columbia will be one of the sponsors of this project I would like to see a great deal of research compiled from an academic perspective,” said Dean Sanderson picking up his cup of coffee.
“This is a given Edward. I will assign research tasks to all of the UBC students involved in this project and perhaps even to Ryan and Monique if they are interested,” said Dr. Lionel Phelge.
“We would love to be part of your research team, Dr. Phelge. Monique and I are willing to do anything to help,” said Ryan.
“Ryan didn’t even bother to ask me but I am in full agreement with him,” said Monique giving Ryan a teasing grin.
“I need to find out who is interested and best suited to each research assignment,” said Lionel. “I am opening the floor to suggestions.”
“I would be interested in keeping a daily log or journal on our project starting with this meeting,” said Jasmine. “I am already recording the minutes for today’s session.”
“That sounds good to me,” said Lionel. “Edward, may I borrow your easel chart to start writing down these individual assignments?”
“Be my guest,” said the Dean.
“I would be interested in searching for and putting together research that has been done so far on Ogopogo.” said Ian. I will need one or more volunteers to help me with this part of the job.”
“I could help you with that,” said Keesha.
“Same here,” said Brendon. “We could start working on the research tomorrow morning.”
“That’s wonderful,” said Dr. Phelge. We now know where to start and we’re ready to get this project moving.”
“I think that this has been a very productive first meeting,” said Dean Sanderson. “Blake could you call me as soon as you know for sure where we stand with your crew?”
“The second that I have everything in place I shall give you a call and we can schedule our next meeting,” answered Blake Riley.
“That’s what I like about you Blake. You are a true man of action,” said Dean Sanderson.
“I never knew there was another way to be,” joked Blake.
