Parkview Passport

  • Earlier today, many Computer Club members came to the Parkview to talk to incoming Freshmen about Computer Club.
  • flay showed up to help out at Parkview Passport by showing off his lockpicking demonstration.
  • hellbacon, tank, sphinx, nospace, stringy, kessler, kami, and flay all showed up to Parkview to help out. Thanks for all of your help!
  • We had about 47 people that gave emails to learn more about Computer Club and 2 people signed up for new accounts!
  • About 7 people signed up with our brand new Computer Club trial system.
    • This is a 14-Day trial account that lets potential members try out the Computer Club IRC server and gives them a chance to check out the other services offered on our server.
    • This is available to anyone that wants to learn more about Computer Club, not just Freshmen at Parkview Passport.
    • This means that we may continue to use this in the future if it ends up being a feature that people like.


  • Thanks to everyone who came to the PLAN meeting last Sunday!
    • If you still want to help out, let sloan know on IRC.
  • They have developed a template for contacting sponsors. You can find this template in the topic of the #sponsors channel on IRC.
    • Some of the things on this template include a checklist of things sponsors should know if they want to help us for PLAN.
  • We are planning on revising the PLAN tournament schedule, but this is subject to change.
  • #sponsors is the channel to check out on IRC if you would like to learn more about volunteering for PLAN.
