Updates!

Good arbitrary time of day, everyone. It's been a long time since people used this site to tell you what was going on with QUB Sci-Fi & F, so I figure I had better give you all some quick updates.

Sci-Fi now meets in the Club Rooms in the Queens Students Union, every Wednesday from 7 until 10, with regular after club chat in Bar Twelve from 10 until whenever people leave.

Mecon has been suspended indefinately, to allow time for redevelopment in the near future. This decision was taken by the then Chairbeing (now, in Oct 2009, Treasurer) sideswipe9th, along with the rest of the then Committee, who I dont have LJ user names for.

The club continues to go from strength to strength, and I will post more up here as I get it. If you have anything that you wish to let the club know about, feel free to post it here, and indeed as many places as you can. It is always a good thing that information is passed around.

I look forward to giving you all more info in the very near future.

Be seeing you!

3rd time we tried this and the first time we won - technically. Unfortunately as we did 16 lines at £1.50 each thus spending £24, we got one line with 2 plus 2 which equals £23.20, so we nearly broke even! We're getting better! Next time profit!

A small reminder

Hey guys.

Just wanted to remind you all that this Wednesdays meeting will not be happening due to another group booking the room on us :( . However I've heard that several members are planning to meet up and head around to a bar, they are planning on meeting in the Students Union at around 7pm and hopefully heading to Bar Sub for a little pool. In the event of the bar there being closed they will probably head around to one of our usual places of drinking :)

The other thing I would like to remind you of is our AGM. This will be happening on Wednesday April 30th, with the official business  most likely starting around 8pm. If you wish to stand for any of our committee positions (all of which are up for grabs) you can find information on them on the Committee page on our website. Please note that to be eligible to stand for a position you need to be a registered member of the society, and that four of the positions require you to be a QUB student. If you have any other business you would like to bring up please mention it to me in advance of the meeting ;)

(no subject)

Hey guys.
Just have a couple of updates for those of you who weren't there on Wednesday. Next Wednesday (April 23rd) there will be no offical meeting, this is due to another group booking the room all day long before we managed to book our time (Grrr). I believe some people are planning on meeting up in a bar but at this time I don't know any more details on that.

The following week (April 30th) we shall be having our AGM, where we shall be doing the necessary task of voting in the new committee. If you are interested in standing for any of the positions take a look at the committee details page for a description on each of the positions. If for any reason you are unable to attend, but are wanting to stand for a committee position drop me an e-mail (chairbeing@qubscifi.org.uk) with the position you want to stand for and a short statement saying what you would hope to do in the position.

Oh and if you have any business you would like to bring up at the AGM please e-mail me about it so I can put it into the meeting agenda.
Hope to see you there!
