Convention 1 LARP Questionnaire Now Up

posted 21 Feb 2014, 16:46 by Otago University Roleplaying Society

Welcome to everyone who signed up on Clubs Day! We'll have more information up as soon as the details are confirmed.

In the meantime, we have our first Convention next weekend (Feb 28 - Mar 2), and it's a great opportunity to meet new people get a taste of a variety of different games. You can head to our Conventions page to find out more. The questionnaire for the Saturday Evening LARP, Delicious Friends, is now available here. You will need to fill in this questionnaire to register your place in the game, so if you're interested then be sure to fill it in soon!

NOTE: There is an error on the brochures that we handed out - the Conventions page was accidentally printed with last year's dates. The dates on the Calendar on the back are the correct ones.

With Clubs and Socs day this week, I've taken steps to ensure the site is up to date. Information about our Wednesday games has been added to the Games page, we have information about our convention this weekend, and the Calendar has been updated for the second semester's events.

I'll endeavour to keep this site up to date in the future, although urgent announcements will be made through our email list (email if you want to be added) and our Facebook group.
