Over the summer break the UCC will be working on a bunch of projects in preparation for the new year and its 40th Anniversary.


Event Management HowTo to be created by [SAS].

All of committee expected to work on some events, which will be further planned at the next Workshop Meeting.


Worked on by [TJB] and [BG3]

Regular LANs are UCC's common social events which are usually held in the Cameron Hall Loft in and out of semester. Overall organisation requires the least effort of all the events. A mostly up to date tutorial can be found here.

Specialised LANs

Essentially the same as a normal LAN except is themed to a particular game. The game used at this point is Artemis, the UCC has a non-DRM copy on Heathred to use. These LANs usually turn into a regular one throughout the event. Note: This is a recent concoction which hasn't been hosted a great deal. Currently it is held in conjunction with UniSFA and Unigames.


The MegaLAN is the one big LAN of the year which usually attracts double the attendees and requires booking venue on campus to handle the capacity. A fair bit of money is spent on this event and requires further work and organisation to be financially sustainable. See MegaLAN2010 and MegaLAN2013

CASSA are looking to host one in association with us this year at Mt Lawley. Their venue is free to hire and requires less organisational effort from UCC, this would be beneficial for UCC members.

Tech Talks

Worked on by [SZM] and [GOZ]

Commonly the education arm of the club, Tech Talks are common events which strive to educate freshers and the unlearned about all the various wonderful tech in the world including those used in UCC. Previous Tech Talks run by [SZM] can be seen here.

[GOZ] has recently started an Introduction to Programming Tutorial which was held one Friday in Semester 1. A full series will be hosted weekly in Semester 1 2015, turnout is expected to be high.


[SAS] had the idea of a first semester HowToUCC series combining the Tech Talks and Lrn2Linux to introduce members old and new to the services that UCC supplies and how best to utilise their membership. This would be a drawn out weekly series of 1 to 2 months likely hosted on a Friday afternoon with longer, slower tutorials which walked through basic concepts and services, to projects and UCC hardware.

[BG3] has started a web version at HowToUCC


Worked on by [GOZ], [BG3] and [SAS]

[GOZ] may have been put in charge of camp stuff this year. Thanks to [*OX] and [GOZ] for doing EMP and RMP things.
This year the camp will be an inclusive underage event with a complete alcohol ban.
[SAS] was the dummy who completed Student Leadership Training (SLT) and has to sign his name on everything.
We need competent first-aiders for this event, which costs people $100-$200 for the course. UCC may look at contributing toward this cost in order to secure available first-aiders in the future.
Student Leadership Training needs to be completed for other event organisers which is being held on July 15th and 16th, two days before the camp is scheduled.

UCCCamp2014 was a success, UCCCamp2015 is in the planning with committee approving it to be an 18+ alcohol event.
New Camp Organisers are to be decided upon by the committee.

Quiz Night

Worked on by [TJB] and [ODF]

[TJB] successfully helped MC the Quiz Night Event was a success In the future we need to improve publicity and promotion, old committee needs to work on this before AGM changeover.

40th Anniversary Dinner

Currently worked on by [BG3]

Looking to be hosted at the University Club on Friday, 12th September 2014.


[SAS] secured sponsorship from Boost Promotional Products
Prospectus should be looked at in the near future, potentially when Guild releases a template prospectus

Template sponsorship letters should be created for events like the Quiz Night and Charity Vigil
