    Ooooh. If we want to do a Fresher's week TSR meet-up, we could meet early enough on an evening when we know there is an appealing pub quiz, and if people are keen, we could enter one!

    I will only be able to identify Busted songs and name ex-Blue Peter presenters, I warn you now :o:

    Sounds like great fun

    But if the meet is in Freshers Week wouldn't it risk clashing with another event ?


    EDIT:
    Oh and I don't like to brag :tongue: but my team 'Girls Are Sexy Hot' (G.A.S.H.) won the epic school pub quiz twooo years running

    We do risk clashing with another event, yeah

    I can start a thread a bit closer to the time, and we can try to find the best time for as many people as we can. From previous years, if we aim for something earlier in the evening, then there will still be time for people to go to events at the Union later on. We could always have a general meet-up to start with, and later, people can either go to other events, participate in a quiz, or sit and feel rubbish at quizzes with me :p:

    I will post on here if I notice any important timetables turning up, so we can try to make informed decisions.

    If we would prefer to do something after fresher's week, I can happily go with that instead. But you might all be working very hard with all your lectures by then ( ), and I imagine we will have fun coordinating around the society events that people might be committed to.

    Hahaha :tongue:
    Well it'd possibly make more sense to do it post-Freshers? Just have to see who's busy for that, it's more likely that more people willbe free

    quiz sounds good, however maybe just start off with the meetup in freshers and do the quiz sometime after.

    I think the quiz is a good idea, gives us something to do (and stops me running off to get cake....). As usual I can't do Thursdays (after freshers' week anyway). The Raisin quiz is normally ok, although it does get verrry noisy in there. The Rule is quite good (we won a pitcher of something in the bonus round ). The Cellar Bar one is purely a music quiz, so if people want a quizzy quiz that's no good.

    I'm glad to see you're still coming too

    As for practical advice, you may like to contact the Disabilities Team at [email protected], and they should be able to help with advice and such like.

    I would email them because of the accomodation, maybe they can give you a room in the groundfloor and all the things. Hope you will get well very soon. Best wishes from me.
