The Rant! 4/19/17

Hey Everybody!

Welcome back to the weekly rant. This week we have some very exciting events going on, mainly our much anticipated trip to FunSpot this Saturday. Just as a reminder we will NOT be having a normal club meeting on Saturday. The trip will replace that meeting, so please don’t show up to the HUB Saturday evening and be disappointed when nobody is there. Here are the other events happening in the next few weeks:

  • This Thursday will be classic Nintendo games night! We will be busting out our Nintendo 64 and a bunch of classics for everyone to play. Games like Banjo Kazooie, Mario Kart 64 and more will be available to play.
  • As Stated above the FunSpot trip is this Saturday. We will be leaving from the HUB at 4:30pm, but please try to be there at 4:00pm to ensure you get a spot on the bus. Spots on the buses are first come first serve and if you miss the buses you will have to arrange for some other form of transport. We plan to return to Plymouth by 11:00pm at the latest.
  • Next Thursday Paul Carey will be showcasing the Freddy Fish Games
  • Next Saturday Tristan will be running a few games of Dominant Species.

And here are the announcements:

  • We will be holding a bake sale fundraiser on the first week of May. If you wish to contribute speak to an officer.
  • We will be holding nominations and elections for the council in the next few weeks. Please think about if you would like to run or if there is anyone you want to nominate.

That’s all for this week! See you all at club!

Rant 4/12/17 Addendum

Hey everyone,

Sorry about the extra email, I forgot to add something pretty important to this weeks rant.

For those of you who haven’t heard we now have an official PSU Gaming Club Discord channel. Discord is a voice and text chat service that allows people to chat while playing games. We will be using our channel as a general media platform for club members to find groups to play with, chat about games and other topics, and as an additional avenue for announcements to be made. If you would don’t have Discord but would like to join the discussion you can download Discord here:

Once you have Discord you can join our channel here: Feel free to jump into the chat and say hello!

That’s all for now. See you all at club!

It cost $5 for one days worth of admission and $7 for the full weekend. It’s going to be a great weekend of games, tournaments, and prizes.

Here’s what else is happening this week:

Hey Everyone,

Game-On-Icon is this weekend and we have a desperate need of volunteers to help run the con.We need volunteers for the following:

  • Set up this Friday night at 6:30pm
  • Tabling and room watching
  • registration
  • raffle running
  • clean up after the con closes Sunday evening

Remember, if you volunteer for at least two hours (although we would definitely appreciate more) then you get into the entire con for free. If you don’t feel like spending $5-7 than this is a great opportunity to save some money for relatively little work. If you want to volunteer email Gabby at gmdavis with the times you will be available and what you would like to help with as well as a phone number to contact you at. Thanks and see you at the con!


David Thrumston.
