- 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.
- Next thursday meeting will be crowded, as it will be the first official meeting of the Fall 2016 semester.
- Be sure to include incoming potential members.
- Find out more about the new members, talk to them!
- There will be minor cleaning in the Computer Club office this weekend, Sunday at 2 PM.
