Several exciting things this week!
Firstly: Our new sponsor!
We are excited to announce that our society is now being sponsored by Zatu Games! Many of you boardgame aficionados will be familiar with the online merchant of board games, card games, collectibles and more. They offer very competitive pricing on a selection of over 13,000 different board games and collectables. Thanks to Zatu, the society is able to purchase new board games at trade prices, and we’ll soon be able to provide you all with discount codes to use too! (You can find out more about Zatu here: https://www.board-game.co.uk/)
This year, rather than electing committee positions at the AGM, we will be running online elections for all our committee roles (President, Treasurer, Secretary, Boardgames Officer, RPG Officer, Events Officer, and Webmaster). Nominations will open 25th February, so please start considering if you’d like to run for a committee position. More details soon.
