Milk, Snacks, Pancakes, Pizza: Are we a Food Society? | T2W8 NewsletterSun 26 Feb
Election Results, plenty of Free Food, and our Programming Challenge!
Due to the posting times of the newsletter, this is quite old news by now, but our Elections results are out! We have a lovely new set of exec (most importantly, Serene will be taking over writing the newsletters) and some fun(?) motions.
In some spectacular timing, we are accidentally giving out (or ordering) food every day this week -- I know some people have joked about living of UWCS free pizza, but your dream is becoming a reality!
Our very own programming challenge happens on Wednesday, which I have heard loads about already 👀. There's probably free pizza, but if there isn't, you didn't hear that from me...
On Thursday, we have a double whammy, a belated pancake day event at The Oaks and a bonus gaming event for our Women & NB members!
At our recent AGM, a very serious motion was submitted, and was seriously voted through. This motion was (fortunately) Milk Mondays!
As a result, we'll be in DCS weekly feeding you all the glorious sustenance of milk. Excitingly, we'll have some alternative milks as well -- even including chocolate milk on the first Monday of each month.
🕡 Mon 27 Feb 6:30pm - 9pm 📍 Dirty Duck
As always, this week in the rotation, we will be ducking.
🕔 Tue 28 Feb 5pm - 9pm 📍 CS0.01
If you haven't had enough of free food from Milk Mondays, Snack Snuesdays are here! Please ignore the last sentence.
