It’s back again! Our annual opening event! FRESHERCON!
Freshercon will take place in the Pleasance Theatre on Wednesday September 13 from 6:00 to 10:00 pm. We will be showing Guardians of the Galaxy followed by a Geeky Pub Quiz, where you can win some awesome prizes. Snack and drinks will be provided, so be sure to come by!
It’s nearly the end of semester two!
The last series night of the semester is on Thursday 6th April, and the last film night will be on Saturday 8th April.
Sciffy will resume in September! The first series night will be on Thursday 21st September and the first film night will be on Saturday 23rd September!

In other AGM news, Alasdair and Rachel have been made lifetime members. We also voted to change the constitution to allow 2 librarians (as you might have guessed from the fact that there are 2 librarians).
On Sunday 12th March, Sciffy will be hosting a Geeky Pub Quiz! From 6:45pm-10pm in Teviot Dining Room!
Entry into the quiz is free, even if you’re not a Sciffy member so feel free to form a team with your non-Sciffy friends! Prizes (which are fabulous) will be based on teams of 5, but your team and be whatever size you want it to be – within reason!
Those of you with Facebook can take a look at our event page!
The Sciffy AGM will take place on Thursday 16th March, at 9pm in David Hume Tower LG11 (straight after series night).
We’ll be voting on any changes to the constitution as well as voting in a new committee. You must be a member of the society to vote in the AGM, but if you’re not currently a member you can join at any point before the AGM starts.
