-contact with Michelle D'Israeli - she posted on facebook group, Will messaged her (shes past exec) she hasn’t replied
-contact with DCS - phillammon and mcnutty went to see matt leeke and roger, theyre happy with gaming, things seemed good, matt wants to have events with us and share resources, appear at open days with oculus. Want people on the new DCS website (preferably computing students), we can possibly use their drones/3D printers, they want a compsoc person on the SSLC, but matt will relay this. Make sure lab is clear after gaming, doesnt seem to be a problem any more though. May be possible to book out lab in future if we dont mess up. Matt loves us.
