Event planning for O'Day 2008.
For ideas and notes from previous years, see ["ODay2007"] and ["ODay2006"].
update with weather forecast and health and safety suggestions
O'Day is on between 1030h - 1530h WDST, 29th February 2008.BR UCC is stall number, description.
Do we have any left to sell or should we run more? (who will do a stocktake?). This is money for jam from repeat members. Make sure you've got enough.
Grabbing New Members
SMS screen (any chance of this?)
- Arrange new-member escorts to the room - the bottom of Cameron Hall seemed to have a distinct "you're not supposed to be here" feel, and it would also give the new members a friend right off the bat.
- Arrange people to talk to small groups of freshers in the room.
- Either team up with other Cameron Hall clubs for BIG A2 signage on doors and ground outside or go it alone.
- Give new members a token for a free coke (their first dispense encounter!) and get them into the room for a chat with a few friendly 2nd years.
More cool things?
Big A0 posters are required. Any from last year still available?
Posters need to have the UCC name on them in an obvious way, rather than just being you-beaut pictures - it would be nice if poster designs were consistent. Who can help?
- UCC is older than the Deparment of Computer Science - 34th year this year.
- Cool stuff:
- Internet coke machine - only one in Australia!
- Manbo: Sun Enterprise server with 14 CPUs and 12 GB of RAM, running the latest Solaris Express
- Clubroom - dozens of different sorts of computers. Eat your e-mail, read your lunch.
- Access to webspace, e-mail, free WAIX
- For CS students: an excellent way to get exposure to the stuff you won't get taught.
- For non-CS students: a chance to play with the kind of equipment you only see in university and corporate environments.
- Gamers as well - LANs etc
- Not just a student club. Plenty of interesting people around
- People working on Mozilla, GNOME, Flock^WSongbird (Yakk's still old guard, right?), Linux, Avahi, plenty of other stuff
- A social club, too - our myraid events (like what?)
- Close relationship with other CH clubs - but you don't have to join them all
- Begin today by going up to the club, and come to Fresher's Welcome Pizza Night next week and AGM shortly after
WorldOfWarcraft is less of an issue this year, but try not to push the computer games thing too hard.
