Welcoming the NHL back to Winnipeg!

In order to properly celebrate the return of NHL hockey to Winnipeg I decided I should go up and have a visit.

Not really.

Although that would be fun my trip to Winnipeg is all business. 

Very briefly...

Myself and other members of the lab are heading to the University of Manitoba tomorrow.  The purpose of the trip is to learn how to use the LA-ICP-MS.  The river herring otoliths for my project have all been analyzed at the University of Manitoba and I haven't been up there yet.  I'm excited to see how the machine works and getting the chance to run some of my own otoliths, so I can stop feeling like a worthless slacker.  I will try and post pictures and updates when I return...
