A new academic year begins, and from the ashes of an all too hot summer rises the magnificent phoenix that is COGS, prepared to bathe yet another round of fresh recruits in the all consuming flames of video game related drama.
Putting analogies aside, we’d like to share with you the dates for the first two COGS events of the coming year.
The first (and most important) is CL1, scheduled for the 12th of October. Like previous years it will almost certainly be the biggest LAN event we host. A chance for the old to meet the new and the new to decide they’ve made a terrible mistake. The venue is Activity Room 11, on the second floor of the Students Union building on Queen’s Road.
The second (CL2) has been scheduled for the 30th of November and will use the same room. If CL1 didn’t put you off, we’d love to see you again at this event.
Both of these, and for that matter all CL events run from 10:00 AM to 9:00 PM and we run a LAN-wide pizza order that usually arrives at about 6:00 PM. Nonparticipation in the pizza order is absolutely allowed so feel free to do your own thing if that floats your boat.
LeachLan 10, a non-COGS event hosted by our friends over at SouthWest LANs is also fast approaching, if you’re interested, head over to The SouthWest LANs event page and have a look.
If you’ve any questions concerning anything COGS related, you can ask your wonderful committee on IRC (if you’ve no idea what this is there’s a tutorial on the website under IRC Guide), send an email to the committee via the contact page, or come and shout at us during the freshers fair.
Additionally, anyone who bought items from the COGS summer sale can pay and pick them up at our booth at the freshers fair. We’re table 51 at the Millenium Square.
Finally, we’re looking for any suggestions that you have for COGS this year. Tell us here http://www.cogsbristol.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=1429
