This went well, but we are to remind people to bring cable next time, as we had a shortage.

The price through the union is £19.50, and they organise trips every Wednesday. They will also organise trips for other days, as long as there are at least 35 people interested.
Booked for 24th May. Baz to mail Kuru and Jamie about inter-society games.
4. Open source Project
Meeting room booked for Friday after next.
5. Pub Social
Meet 7:50pm in Rootes on Sunday. Chris to mail a reminder.
6. Web Site
We can’t host cgi scripts at DCS or CSV. Phil is to ask the Union about ASPs, and Chris Smith to write a description of the society for the Union website.
The cheque was requested, but we have not yet received any receipt. It was agreed that we would buy one and then get the money back from the Union.
Chris Smith to develop further.
It was decided that it would be useful if we had some headphone to lend to people during Friday gaming sessions. These are to be bought at the Computer Fair, but we need to see Ann to check if we can get our money back.
It was suggested that we could book Zippys for the first social next year, as it would be less crowded than going to the Airport. We are to investigate when we can book this, and if it will cost money.
It was suggested that we hold a competition for the best screenshot - with sub categories (like best non-CS screenshot etc) in an attempt to get some pictures for Freshers Fair/The leaflet
It has been decided to keep these sessions on Friday, but due to the forseen increased demand next year, Chris Smith to mail CSV for the possibility of getting an extra session for the first few weeks of next term.
Andy to organise a CS tournament.
Everyone was asked to keep their eyes open for possible ‘gimmicky’ freebies to give to members at freshers fair.
Everybody asked to keep their eyes open for events.
