Autumn 2016 Rooms

Sunday afternoons 12:30 pm, Teviot Study.
Sunday Evenings 6:30, Teviot dining room.

Wednesdays are … complicated.
October 5th, we are homelesly wandering the Teviot.
From October 12th, we have space at the Kilderkin Pub. Though we can always try to use public space in the Teviot.

Games start 28th September and Sunday October 2nd.

Game re-starts (the best time to join, re-join or change or start games) on the 6th and 9th of November.

AGM and committee elections

As usual, Conpulsion & Events coordinators will be deferred until the next academic year.

Propulsion raises almost £300 for the Edinburgh Sick Kids Foundation.

Committee elections:
President! Angus McEwing continues his reign as eternal president.
Secretary! Tudor Ferariu re-elected. 
Treasurer! Erich Essmann persists in failing to embezzle our funds. 
Social! Joe ‘don’t vote for me’ Foster, Jason Ebblewhite & Gregor ‘a vote for me is a vote for Trump’ Hutton all nominated for the popular post of ‘piss up in a pub’ organiser. Jason won the knock down, drag out brawl that followed. 
Wellness! Faye ‘happiness is mandatory’ Sutherland continues to look after us all.  
Web! Alan Jackson continues the reign of minimalist maintenance.  
Librarian! Sam McDouall renewed in post. 

Short term games:
The vote on the contentious ‘6 week games’ occurred. The motion tabled is for the voluntary version, where games will be re-pitched every 6-8 weeks, with continuing players having priority. This would be extended to all slots. This motion passed after extended discussion.

March Room Bookings

Greetings Grand Adventurers,

As those of you that rolled at least 2 successes on your perception+alertness rolls will have noticed we have not been given rooms for a lot of the evening sessions in March.

We have attempted to address this as best as possible as follows.

8th March: Dining Room, Teviot from 1930-2300 (This is a later start than normal, we apologise for this)
22nd March: Ochil, Pleasance from 1830-2200. There is also NO booking of the Middle Reading Room this week.
29th March: Ochil Pleasnace from 1830-2200

These last two will not have capacity for all our games. If you could speak to myself sometime before these sessions so I can establish who will be gaming in Ochil and who is happy/capable of gaming at an extra-society location.

Sunday afternoons will continue to be in the Teviot Study, and Wednesday Evenings in the Pleasance (lomond & others)

Also be aware that we have an AGM on the 8th March, this will be in the Study immediately after the afternoon session finishes at 1715.
