UCC Fresher Welcome
Friday, February 28th
Cameron Hall Loft (above the UCC clubroom)
The Fresher welcome exists to welcome you, a new UCC member, to the club. There will be a number of current members there to talk with and get to know, and all of your questions about the club and how to use it will be answered. As a bonus, all first time members get FREE pizza.
UCC Annual General Meeting
Tuesday, March 11th
1.00 PM (common lunch hour of UWA)
Guild Council Meeting Room
The AGM is the meeting at which the new UCC committee is elected for 2014. The only way to be represented is to attend on the day. As a Fresher, you should attend to either run for or vote for the position of the Fresher Representative,who will be your liaison for the committee. If you don't know where the Guild Council Meeting Room is, arrive at the UCC clubroom a little early to join the mass exodus.
3:00 PM to the morning after
UCC runs a number of LANs throughout the year, some with proper organisation, some without. The Easter LAN is the first big LAN of the academic year, taking place over the Easter weekend, the first weekend of mid-Semester one study break. We play a number of different games, and of course you can organise your own. LANs are free for all UCC members, but you can bring a friend for around $5 (though of course you should encourage them to join). Bring your own PCs, or use one of the limited stock in the clubroom.
Throughout the Year
From Dusk til Dawn
The UCC hosts a number of more LANs throughout the year. As above, the Easter LAN is the first big one. Expect other LANs during the semester and breaks.
Cameron Hall Quiz Night
First Semester, probably in May
Bringing together the various clubs of Cameron Hall, the quiz night is the only proper time to use your smarts throughout your degree. Likely to take place in the UWA Tav, tables and tickets will be organised closer to the date.
The UCC goes camping! Without tents. Some time during the winter break, UCC will host a camp, probably at Camp Leschenaultia. This is a chance to get your computer out of the house for a few days, tinkering and playing games with a whole bunch of other members. Don't worry, you won't be without precious internet. For first timers to the camp, some old members may offer a "scholarship" to the camp if you can't afford it. Expect more details closer to the date.
UCC 40th Anniversary Dinner
Saturday, September 13th
7.00 PM til late(r)
South of Perth Yacht Club
The big non-tech event of the year, the 40th Anniversary dinner is an opportunity for new members to meet the old blood of UCC, the ones that are still kicking on. Taking place in the lovely South of Perth Yacht Club, this fully catered dinner will be a good celebration of 40 years of computing. Expect entry prices to be around $60 to $80, which should cover dinner.
Cameron Hall Charity Vigil
Semester 2 - around mid-semester study break
From Dusk til Dawn
Once a year, all of the clubs in Cameron Hall get together and hold a night of fun and games to raise money for charity. While the details of the night are still to come, the UCC will probably host a LAN. There will be an entry fee for this event, but expect it to be fully worth it.
UCC Tech Talks
Throughout the Year
At Various Times
Tech talks are a chance to demonstrate your own tech-y knowledge, or learn from someone else. Taking place throughout the year, as interest demands, the talks will cover a variety of topics, previous ones including introductions to TOR, learning basics, and the magic of data compression. Early on in the semester, a number of tech talks will cover learning to use the various machines and servers of the club.
