Rooms! We have them! Except on 26th February. Mumble grumble something about lawyers. We are, however, booked over exam season and the Easter holidays. Just in case.
Every Wednesday except 26th February – Cheviot Room, Pleasance
First Wednesday is 15th January, last is 21st May.
Sundays are, alas, a little more complex. Including a couple of venue-swapping days. We’ll be endeavouring to solve that last part if we can.
January – all Sunday sessions in January are in the Study, Teviot. The first session is 19th January.
February – all sessions on the 16th and the afternoon of the 9th are in the Study, Teviot. All sessions on the 2nd & 23rd and the evening of the 9th are in the Cheviot Room, Pleasance.
March – all sessions on the 16th & 30th, the evening of the 2nd, and the afternoon of the 23rd are in the Study, Teviot. All sessions on the 9th, the afternoon of the 2nd, and the evening of the 23rd are in the Cheviot Room, Pleasance.
April & May – all sessions are in the Study, Teviot. Note: there is no GEAS on Sunday 27th April. There is, however, Conpulsion. You should be there. It is fun.
In the ‘replace Matt’ campaign:
Marlene Ason appointed as social secretary.
Martin Benedict appointed as Conpulsion liaison.
Temporary appointments ended.
Many tidy ups to the constitution. Mostly formalities and procedures thanks to having a lawyer on the committee. New constitution will be uploaded soon.
Discussion occurred about the timing of Conpulsion. Apparently the big reveal is tomorrow…
Some long standing members of GEAS proposed and approved as life members:
‘Lemon Fresh’ Phil Harris.
All motions passed unanimously.
Wednesday evenings (6pm): The first Wednesday session is 18th September. Wednesday sessions will be in the Cheviot Room, Pleasance. There will be no session on 6th November.
Sunday afternoons (1pm): The first Sunday afternoon session is 22nd September. Sunday afternoon sessions will be in the Study, Teviot (overflowing into the New Ampheon).
Sunday evenings (6pm): The first Sunday evening session is 22nd September. Sunday evening sessions will be in the Study, Teviot (overflowing into the New Amphion).
The Conpulsion Comittee for next year is starting to come together…
It will probably include:
Coordinator: el-Presidente Euan Reid
RPGs: Craig Oxbrow
LARPs: Roderick Easton
Wargames: Geoff Nicholson
Board games: Sasha Mesarovich
Traders & Social Media: Tara Catt
Demos & Guests: …
Staff: Sam MacAdam
Logistics: Jo Cross & Flic Anderson
Treasurer: Jamie Prentice
Webmaster: Alan ‘what was the password’ Jackson
GEAS Liaison: Matthew Knighton
In a rapid fit of meetings and organised-ness we have elected a Conpulsion Liaison and a Nationals Coordinator.
In a fit of ‘appoint the person who didn’t dodge’..
Both positions go to Matthew Knighton.
Setting a record for fastest AGM in remembered GEAS history, the committee for the next year has been (mostly) determined!
President – Euan Reid
Secretary – Angus McEwing
Treasurer – Erich Essmann
Librarian – Faye Sutherland
Webmaster – Alan Jackson
Social Secretary – Matthew Knighton
Nationals Coordinator and Conpulsion Liason will be elected following this year’s rendition of said events.
In the grim darkness of the post-apocalypse, there is still GEAS. We resume Wednesdays on the 16th of January and Sundays on the 20th of January.
Our regular meetings will be in the Cheviot Room at Pleasance from 6pm-10pm on Wednesdays, and in the Study in Teviot from 1pm-5pm then 6pm-10pm on Sundays. The last Wednesday session will be on the 3rd of April and the last Sunday on the 7th of April
Worthy of note, however, is that Propulsion, our 24-hour marathon gaming session for charity, will be running from 8pm to (drumroll) 8pm, so there will be no regular Sunday gaming on the 3rd.
Other deviations from the norm as follows:
Sunday 10th February – We will be in the Dining Room in Teviot for the afternoon session.
Sunday 3rd March – We will be in the Dining Room in Teviot for the afternoon session.
Wednesday 6th March – There will be no session on the 6th.
Sunday 17th March – There will be no session on the 17th.
Sunday 31st March – There will be no session on the 31st.
Additionally, Conpulsion – Scotland’s premier gaming convention – will be running from the 12th to the 14th of April. Attendance is conpulsary (rimshot). Guests, booking information, and more can all be found on the website – www.conpulsion.org
More details on Propulsion and Conpulsion will follow in due course.
