Hello members and other followers of our RLUG, here we are again with some news from the board, so that you can follow the workings and Machiavellian machinations of the club ;-)
Brick Mania Antwerpen
Let's spend some words on the next event first. Brick Mania Antwerpen is right around the corner, as in two weeks time we will all be flocking to the Waagnatie for the final Brick Mania event of the year.
Expect the details to arrive very soon in your mailbox, including a lay-out of parking venue's and such, as a few things have changed there over the past 12 months.
The workgroup has been doing a great job, and has done it's best to cater for everyone's needs, so let's make this another great event.
Brick Mania Wetteren 2017
A little teaser for the 2017 edition, which will take place during the Easter weekend. It's the 10th anniversary of the Wetteren event, and a very special present is being designed as we speak for the participants. But I ain's telling anything more ;-)
Effective Member Meeting
The friday after Brick Mania Antwerpen, we will be having the next effective member meeting to discuss any changes the club wants to implement in 2017, as well as look back and evaluate the summer and autumn seasons of this year.
If you have any points you want to add to the agenda, OR if you want to enter your motivation to become an effective member, please send these to our club email, firstname.lastname@example.org
Following nicely on the previous point, in 2018 we will be celebrating our 15th anniversary. A workgroup will be formed "in due time" and this will, like this years clubday, be handed out to the effectives to organise. So you can already start brainstorming, you have about 1.5 years time now to come up with something ;-)
Sci-fi and fantasy conventions in 2017
While we have already been confirmed for quite a few of these for 2017, there is a small rule that is going to be implemented as these are becoming quite a success.
Starting 2017, we are going to ask if people "enlist" if they want to participate at least 1 month in advance for a convention. We will be doing the usual "who wants to join" on the Facebook page and the likes, but for logistical reasons (size of the booth, needed tables, etc etc) Kris and me need to have a decent idea about the number of participants.
I can already say we will be present at Comic Con Brussels in february, StarCom in july and Elftopia in august (that last one is something special, you`ll be exposing in small tents in open air for example, and it lasts until 01.00 at night, you have to dress up, and NO sci-fi allowed, it`s fantasy and medieval only). Keep your eyes peeled for more information about those events when the time is right.
Well, that`s about it for this time. In a few weeks, after the Brick Mania rush and all has calmed down, and we chart our course for 2017 events, you will find me back here on these pages with some more news from our board meetings...
