Salut, mes amis!
(That’s "Hello" for all you non-francophones)

This is going to be a dense one, so bear with me.

First and foremost: Elections are happening tomorrow at the start of the meeting! Please be there! We need you to vote.

As a brief refresher, the candidates are as follows:
-President: Tristan
-Vice President: Stel, David T., Christian, and Seabass
-Treasurer: Matt
-Secretary: David T., Christian, Seabass, Matt, and Gabby

If we can all cooperate and communicate efficiently, hopefully we can have this done relatively quickly.

As many of you may know, Anime Boston is happening in a few days’ time. Those of you with cosplays you would like to finish up or make adjustments to are invited to bring them in and work with Rosie Legge, one of our past members (and a Costume Design major. She knows what she’s doing). She will be providing ONE sewing machine, sewing tools, basic patterns, acrylic paint, and her own knowledge and assistance.

That said, we invite you to bring in additional sewing machines. Also, we will NOT be providing fabrics. Those get rather expensive very quickly. This is intended as a workshop for those of you who need to finish up your cosplay, or need some help or guidance with something difficult.

Next Thursday, we will have a terrain-building workshop with Ethan. This is a great opportunity to learn how to put together fantastic battlegrounds for all your tabletop skirmishes. Even if you don’t play, feel free to stop by and exercise your right to be creative!

That’ll about wrap things up for this week!

See y’all at the meeting,

This week marks our last meeting before Spring Break! With that stated, there is no meeting on Saturday.

Tomorrow, which is Thursday, we have a Boffer-Making workshop hosted by John. For those of you who don’t know, these are what you hit people with in LARP (Live-Action Role Play). Make sword, have fun.

After the break, we have a couple nice treats lined up for you. Just in time for Anime Boston, we’ll be holding a cosplay workshop! Now, one important thing. Supplies, such as fabrics, will not be provided. We expect that those of you participating already have cosplays planned out and/or partially made, so we expect that you have some materials of your own to bring in. We can provide the machinery and gadgets, but buying fabric gets costly, especially for a large number of people.

There will also be a terrain-building workshop for all of you tabletop gamers. Ethan will be covering the basics of how to make your own terrain, which I imagine will be useful knowledge for those of you who do not know how. Even if you do know how it’s done, feel free to spend some time chatting and having fun.

With all that out of the way, we can get to some important housekeeping stuff. Nominations for the four core officer positions will be held at the start of tomorrow’s meeting. Chairs will happen sometime in the future. This shouldn’t take too long, provided we’re all cooperative and coordinated. The quicker we can get this out of the way, the quicker you get to have fun.

That about wraps this one up.

See y’all tomorrow evening,

[Sorry for the delay in getting this out. Last night's eMail failed. Thanks Google.]


This week at Gaming Club, our video game chair will be bringing out heaps of interesting games for you entertainment. No specifics. It’s a surprise!

On Saturday, we have another TCG tournament! This time around, it’s Yu-Gi-Oh!. We have yet to settle on whether this will be held online or with actual cards, so please bring your opinion with you if you are interested.

Next week, (yes, I can see the future) we have some fun activities prepared for Thursday. Your president, John, is holding a Boff Weapons workshop for those of you interested in games where you get to hit people for fun (and not get in trouble for it). This is fun, so you should do it.

There is no meeting the following Saturday. Spring Break is a thing that occurs, so most people will not be in Plymouth for a week starting Saturday. Needless to say, this also means club will not meet over the course of Spring Break. We will resume our normal schedule when break has ended.

Now, and this is important so listen well, we will be holding nominations for next year’s officer corps next thursday (not this one, the one after). Elections will occur before the end of the month. That said, make sure you are there.

End transmission.

Hi folks!

This Thursday our TCG chair will be holding a Hearthstone tournament. There is no entry fee, so don’t be shy! There will not be a prize on the line (other than bragging rights), so just show up and have fun.

On Saturday, the anime group will be taking a break from their Bizarre Adventure in favor of a movie (or two). The film in question will be The Girl Who Leapt Through Time. Bring a popcorn or two and enjoy the film!

Game-On-i-Con Committee! You will be meeting this Thursday, Saturday, and next Thursday with the goal of completing poster design for Game-On-i-Con. You’ll have more details to work with soon. We’re counting on you to make something fantastic and beautiful!

That’s it for this week.

Hey people!

This Thursday we have exciting events for you (probably)! Shane will be doing something with his video game machines for your enjoyment. I’m sure he has a game or two in mind (we hope). After business, the Game-On-i-Con committee will be meeting briefly.

This saturday, Anime Club will be continuing its adventures into the muscly world of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure. Eric won’t be there to facilitate things, but he has appointed somebody to take over for him for the meeting.

Total-con is taking place this weekend at the Holiday Inn in Mansfield, MA. Syndi-con is also coming up in the near future. It’ll be held at UNH during the weekend of March 5th and 6th.

Speaking of cons, pick up your sewing needles and don your fancy headgear! We will be planning on holding a cosplay contest at Game-On-i-Con. The event will be held on Sunday, April 10th from 1:00pm-5:00pm. Make something beautiful!

That’s all for now,

Hello everybody!

This week we’ve got a couple of nice things lined up for you! On Thursday, our Warmachine people will be setting up some basic games to teach to anyone who’s interested. If tabletop tactics is your thing, swing on by and have some fun!

This Saturday, we’ll finally be giving some time to all of the anime fans in Gaming Club. Details on this are forthcoming, but suffice it to say: the JCAC chair has some good fun planned for you.

On the topic of Game-On-i-Con: Anybody who wants to run an event will need to fill out a GM form. These can be conveniently located on the club’s WordPress ( We need events in order for the con to be as fun and exciting as possible, so please don’t be shy with your ideas!
Speaking of cons, Syndi-Con at UNH and Total Con in Massachusetts are both happening this Spring. We’ll let you know more as we get more information, but mark them down on your calendar. Go, have fun, and subtly (or not-so-subtly) direct people towards Plymouth for Game-On-i-Con.

Lastly, many of you might be familiar with Anime Boston. We’re putting some feelers out right now to guage interest in a group trip. If we have enough people interested, we might be able to make this a reality.

That’ll be all, for now!
