Term 1 Week 8: Gaming, Christmas Meal and LAN Signups.

Posted on 26th November 2010

Hello CompSoc!

A few things this week:

As we have our Christmas meal on Friday, gaming is not officially taking place this week. We apologise about the short notice about this.

You should come along to the Christmas meal instead if you can! It's at Wing Wah's, an all you can eat buffet and starts at 19:30. I hope to see you there!
