Welcome to GeekSoc & 2015! | First Meet Info!

Hey there everyone!

Firstly, Happy new year!

Quick announcement for the start of this year, We will be returning to the usual structure of meetings from this Thursday (22nd) onward. This thursday (6 til 10) on lvl 5 of the union, is going to be a bit of a mash up, There are some things we would love to do to the servers (Percussive maintenence as we like to call it) but we would also love to know what you have been getting up to over the holidays.

We would also like to invite you along to GAMES on Tuesday (20th), this is the recently formed Gaming section of Geeksoc who have been running on a trial basis for the last semester. This week it has been decided that it will be a Zombie Survival Night (Games such as Killing floor, L4D2, How to survive and Warcraft3). Do come along to have some fun.

Both nights are BYOG (Bring your own gear).

See you all soon,

Geeksoc Committee

Tonight’s Meet-up and StrathHack

Hey all,

Thanks to those who attended the DefCon Capture the Flag event on the 25th. It went great and we all learned lots! Hopefully we’ll be doing some more things like this in future (though with network access next time and a bit more guidance for newer people!).

Thanks also to those who attended the Gaming meet-up on Tuesday as part of our trial run of more gaming events within the society. If you need to unwind, head along to the next one on Tuesday @ 7pm.

This week we’re preparing for StrathHack and Rob needs help getting sorted. If you fancy getting your hands dirty setting up Network Relays we’d appreciate it! (As always we’ll have our LAN running too.)

If you’d like to attend StrathHack and haven’t already done so, sign up here. Space is strictly limited so grab a spot while they’re still going!

See you guys at 6pm, Level 5. As always, BYOG!

(P.S There’s some Demos/Open Source games on my page that may be of use if you fancy getting some LAN gaming going, more will be added soon!)

EGM Reminder & Team Fortress 2 Night

It’s EGM day! (Stay with me, there’s alcohol involved, honestly)

Tonight we need you all to come along and make sure you have your opinions voiced. We’ll vote on the future of our society and propose some major changes to the way we do things at GeekSoc. Please come along so that you can cast your vote and decide on our future!

After that, it’s Team Fortress 2 Night! Bring along a laptop and the game and compete against everyone. As an added bonus well be giving away alcoholic beverages as rewards during the event! First person to kill me (Craig) 5 times will win the drink of their choice. More rewards will materialise as the night progresses :D

Hope to see you all there! Remember to bring your laptop, TF2 if you can, and your opinion! We’re counting on you!

See you at six!
