View of St Boniface Golf Club

Annual Ken Pratt Memorial Golf Tourney  

SEPTEMBER 10, 2019


It’s soon time for the fall flogging classic. And time to take advantage of what we hope will be both a refreshing change for MAA members and a beautiful afternoon at St. Boniface Golf Club. The MAA will be using a Texas Scramble format, with no pre-determined handicaps; and, as has been the case for the past number of years, the only handicaps will be those which are self-imposed and identified in advance.

The MAA has once again arranged for a modified shot-gun start this year. For this reason, power carts are required and the tee-off time for everyone will be at 1:00 pm sharp.

All participants MUST arrive at the course no later than 12:15 pm, since additional organization time is required for each group, with a shot-gun start; AND for the barbeque lunch (hotdog or hamburger + bottled non-alcohol beverage) which is included with this year’s tournament package.

Upper Fort Garry Fall Fundraiser Dinner

Date: September 5, 2019
Reception: 5:00 p.m. – 6:15 p.m.
Dinner: 6:15 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.

Upper Fort Garry is the actual site where the Assembly of Assiniboia voted to form the Province of Manitoba and to join the confederacy of Canada. The impact of that momentous decision was critical in the formation of Canada as it exists today. That’s why the Friends of Upper Fort Garry saved the HBC Upper Fort Garry site from development.

Using interpretation, art and technology the site has been re-imagined into a public park which strives to highlight history’s many stories, MANY VOICES of all the people who have lived in the region from thousands of years ago until today.

At the 2019 Fall Dinner, you will learn about critical dates and actions of 1869 and 1870. Make your Manitoba 150 celebrations a time of recognition of all Manitoba’s people.

$250 per person – appropriate tax receipt
$2500 table for 10 – appropriate tax receipt
Dress: Business casual (ladies: flat soled shoes/shawl or light jacket recommended)

RAIC Releases New Fee Guide

The Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC) is proud to announce that the latest edition of A Guide to Determining Appropriate Fees for the Services of an Architect is now available.

“The practice of architecture and the provision of architectural services have evolved considerably,” note the authors. “Today, the architect and client must agree upon a wide range of project requirements and negotiate a fair exchange of value based on the unique aspects of each project.”

The 2019 fee guide explores the scope of both basic and additional architectural services, the value of architectural services, different approaches to determining a fee structure, and how architectural services fees can be calculated.

Developed for clients, architects, engineers, educators, and interns, the 58-page document is more than a fee guide. It offers a wealth of information on fee adjustment factors, comparisons of project delivery types, including risk analysis, and explains the value of architectural services.
