CompSoc is soon to host a brewery tour for its members and others within the school of computing. We believe this event is going to take place on Thursday 7th February so keep the evening of that date free in your diaries. The idea will be to get a tour of the Elland Brewery and then a taste of a variety of beers afterwards.

Upon our return to campus those who wish to do so can join us on a trip to a local real ale pub to taste the end result of the brewer’s hard work. Be sure to join in with this if you like real ale!

There will be a CompSoc EGM on Thursday 6th September. This is to properly elect the new committee due to the lack of attendence at the AGM at the beginning of the summer vacation. The time of the meeting has yet to be published but will be announced soon.

Please try your best to keep this date free or free it up if you are already doing something and encourage all your friends to come along and vote. Ideas and contributions are always welcome at these kinds of meetings.

It should please many to note that CompSoc isn’t dead and that a plan for its triumphant return with a new committee and exciting events and socials is well under way. A preliminary meeting was held on Monday and it seems likely that in the next couple of weeks we will have everything sorted.

A new website is soon to be uploaded with all the information, so keep your eyes on the SoC intranet. If anyone has any suggestions for CompSoc events then please list them in the comments of this blog.

Just a quick heads-up to everyone who is in or who wants to be involved with CompSoc that the AGM is on Wednesday next week. Keep your eyes on your e-mail/news/facebook for the time and place although it is most likely to be in the Long Room at some point. This is your chance to have your say about CompSoc, events and also to get involved with running it for the coming year if you want to. Spread the word and be sure to show up.
