This week's a big week for AASOC - unless you've not been reading the
emails or coming to AASOC for the last few weeks then you'll know the
AASOC Minicon is this Sunday!
We'll have rooms filled to the brim with stuff to do including:
- 1 large games room, with a projector alternating games for the Wii,
DDR and whatever else people want, with other games running TVs.
- 1 room of classic anime ranging from retro to series that you may
remember fondly from when you started with anime or friends introduced
- The Pleasance theatre, during the day, will be screening fresh anime
for 2007 - catch a new series here before 6pm, from 7pm expect a movie
as well as the next 4 episodes of Nerima Daikon Brothers (I hold the
2nd DVD here as I speak...expect sing-alongs :P).
- 1 room for chilling out, taking part in the yearly drawing
competition as well - with a theme to be announced for it on the day!
Not to mention the annual anime music quiz, so get a team of 4-5 people
- A bar, which should be open and vending drinks as well as (hopefully)
food - news on food to follow soon too hopefully!
- Finally at the entrance, the Caingorm room will act as the
registrations room where you can collect your conpack!
Also we've received a mass of things from ADV Films, Beez
Entertainment, Manga Entertainment and MVM so we'll be having as always
a massive raffle at the end of the day - with raffle tickets costing £1
for a strip!
If you've not pre-registered Tuesday is your last day to do so for the
price of £5, likewise if you're keen to help AASOC out then do come and
let us know during series night or drop a mail as help at Minicon is
always welcome! Cost on the day for entry will be £6.
*deep breath* Speaking of doing your part for AASOC, as part of our
constitution we need to have our Annual General Meeting between weeks
7-11 of Semester 2. So I'm pleased to announce that we will be holding
our AGM (and cartoon night if we get done quickly) on Thursday the 10th
of March in Appleton Tower - LT to be confirmed.
This means that if you've an interest in helping make AASOC what it is
today then this is your chance to help! Positions that are open for
* Care of EUSA these need to be matriculated students at Ed Uni.
** Need to be matriculated and take the EUSA treasury course first. So
you don't run off with our vast wealth to the Bahamas (or more
realistically the sunny shores of the Clyde...)
*** Requires actual work.
I'll list more details on the AGM next week, when Minicon is safely out
the way! But for now drop a line to someone on the committee at the
series night or drop an email replying to this one if curious about the
