Welcome back everyone, we hope you have all had a great holiday!
The committee has been hard at work this summer planning an exciting and interesting year ahead, and we can’t wait to share our plans with you. We are dedicated to making computer club even better than last year, and have been going over feedback from last year to make sure we fix any issues from last year. In addition, we are focusing on collaborating more with the CS department throughout the year. This will allow us to host workshops and talks led by our awesome lecturers – hopefully this will make our meetings more educational and worthwhile.
To kick off the year we’re going to have a stall in the Atrium on Wednesday the 14th, so come by, have a chat, find out more about our plans for the coming year and get some freebies that BCS has kindly provided us!
Our Give It A Go this year will be on Monday the 19th of September at 6.30pm in 2Y5. If you don’t know where this is, you can meet us in the Atrium at 6.00pm and we’ll take you there. We’ll be doing “Coding In The Dark”, where there will be a bunch of prizes up for grabs!!! This is just a fun challenge for all regardless of coding experience, so come along and get a taste of the Club! If you we’re here last year, you will already be familiar with the event, but feel free to come along and join the fun!
The first meeting will be on 26th of September. During the meeting we’ll be discussing the year ahead and talking to you about what you would like to do in meetings. We will announce the room before the meeting, so keep an eye out for emails and Facebook posts from the Club.
For any members from last year that will be coming back, it would be very helpful if you would buy your membership before the first meeting. The sooner we get an idea of how many members we have the sooner we can plan the first social event (FREE PIZZA!)
We hope to see you all soon and we’re looking forward to a great year!!!
