SLUGSoc Tuesday Social: PUYO PUYO Tetris VS

SLUGSoc Tuesday Social: PUYO PUYO Tetris VS

This Tuesday, SLUGSoc does battle in a true thinking persons game the only way they know how: by stacking colours and tessellating blocks. It’s Puyo Puyo Tetris VS!

The plan is we’ll spend a little bit of time at our sponsor, Firepit Rocks, which is located on West Street just down from the university campus. All paid members will be eligible for a 10% discount on their meal, along with special drink prices! We’ll hopefully have someone there to hand out the cards! Check out their menu here: https://firepit.rocks/menus/

After that, we’ll be heading back up the street a little bit to Bloo 88, who have graciously allowed us to use some space at their venue to play the game! It’s liable to be fun and fast paced, and we can’t wait to see who comes out on top!

SLUGSoc EGM: A New President

SLUGSoc EGM: A New President

Hey everyone, our president Thomas Rudd has stepped down due to graduating . So we’re looking for a new committee member to step up and fill his shoes!

As president, you’re the face and figurehead of the society, making important calls and wrangling the committee during meetings. You decide the course of the society, but you’re not in it alone.

If you would like to apply please send us an email detailing why you’d be a good fit. This statement will be handed out during the EGM where a new officer will be voted for. (Send to: [email protected] subject: EGM)

Thomas will still be around a bit to do a handover and there are plenty of experienced committee members around to help you if you choose to run for the role.

The EGM will be on Monday, 23rd September at 2PM in Gallery Room 2 at the Student’s Union.
