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.

Propulsion 2015

We have final, final times and rooms for Propulsion.

We will begin on 31st Jan at 1200 in the Study, Teviot and remain there until 1800. At 1800 we will move across to the Highland and Ochil Rooms in Pleasance and remain there until 1200 on the 1st Feb.

We look forward to seeing everyone there, entrry is £2 and charity re-rolls are encouraged!

A report was made giving a quick update on hoodies, t-shirts and dice etc. The Committee hopes to have pre-orders available in 2 weeks.

Similarly, the Committee hopes to have a finalised members list for this year in 2 weeks and thus be able to order membership cards.

Semester 1 2014/15 Rooms

Our glorious room bookings are as follows

Sunday Afternoon sessions will begin on Sunday the 21st, they will be held in the Study Teviot at 1300-1700. The only exception to this is 26th October where we will be in Pentland Room, Pleasance.

Sunday Evening sessions will begin on Sunday the 21st, they will be held in the Study, Teviot at 1830-2230. The only exceptions are on 12th October when we will be in 48a Upper, Pleasance and 26th October when we will be in Pentland Room, Pleasance.

==To help out some fellow students we have, graciously, agreed to move our Booking on the Evening of 16TH NOVEMBER to the Dining Room, Teviot.==

Wednesday Evening sessions will begin on Wednesday the 17th, they will be held in the Study, Teviot at 1705-2130. There are no exceptions to this.

We recognise the difficulty some of our members may have in regards to the Wednesday session, particularly as the Study has been booked by another society for use immediately after our booking ends. However, this was the only feasible way to make this work. We can, if need be utilise the Ampheon and I will be discussing with Theatre Soc on the first Wednesday to see if we can negotiate that position.
