I just wanted to create this thread as we're gonna be using it soon. Some of you may already know that we have a cubing society at the university of Leicester, and for those that don't you do now.
Anyone can join, even if you're not at the uni. Membership is £5 for 2012/2013
Below is a summary of what we do/what you can get out of joining
During term time we have weekly meet-ups on campus and have informal monthly competitions (3x3x3 only atm), at the end of the year there are prizes for the best performances over the course of the competitions and for most improved cuber.
In November we are hosting the UK Open along with Daniel & seventowns.
We plan/want to host another, smaller, official comp in spring 2013 too; as a member registration would be free for this.
We have several bar-crawls planned throughout the year.
In April or summer 2013 we will be arranging a subsidised trip to a competition either in the UK or abroad for our members.
The Mathematics Department are funding a guest lecture for us from an expert in puzzle mathematics.
Members can buy/trade-in cubes at very good prices.
more to come in the future...
So yeah, if you are interested in joining for 2012/2013 reply to this thread or join our group on facebook.
Finally, if you do not want to join...
why not challenge the society to a team event of some kind with some of your cubing friends? post here, we are happy to travel for meetups etc.
OR, if you think you have something interesting to say/teach; post here, and we will pay for you to come to the University to do it.
