GEAS Start of Semester 2

Greetings Grand Adventurers,

My apologies for taking so long, I should have probably sent this mail much earlier, but it’s too late for that now, so let’s just move on to the important parts.

For those of you who might be new, re-pitches are when new games start, and the ongoing ones get re-pitched. Usually there is a decent blend of new and ongoing games, and you can join either as long as there is space, after you hear the pitch and see what you are interested in. Of course if you are continuing to play in a game, you have priority to staying in it, but you can also use this as an opportunity leave your game, whatever your reasons may be. People who are new to GEAS get first pick of the games, so that they have an easier time starting with something they think they would enjoy, and not having to worry as much about available spaces.

Re-Pitches will be taking place:

  • on the 21st of January, Sunday Afternoon, from 13:00-17:00, in the Lomond Room, Pleasance
  • on the 21st of January, Sunday Evening, from 18:30-22:30, in the Lomond Room, Pleasance
  • on the 24th of January, Wednesday Evening, from 18:30-22:30, in the Lomond Room, Pleasance

Now, before you start a lynch mob, let me try and explain. Teviot is slowly entering it’s own refurbishment process, and while it is still going to be open for this semester, my understanding is that it will be closed completely starting next academic year. While Pleasance has not been the best in the past, during its refurbishment, much work has been done to make it more accessible and usable. The room we have been given is not bad, and we at least have it booked VERY consistently, so if people can get used to the new environment it might be for the best, because as previously mentioned, Teviot will no longer be an option soon. The food there has also improved since the renovations, and you can easily take it away to the Lomond Room. For now we will have to go ahead with what we have and see how it goes, should the conditions be unsatisfactory, we will try to find the best alternative, but let’s at least give it a shot.

That’s going to be it for now. I will be sending another mail closer to the starting date, but should you have any questions or complaints, please don’t hesitate to mail us, we will try our best to help.

For the Glory of GEAS,
Tudor Ferariu
