OUSFG Michaelmas Termcard 2012

Sunday Library Meetings (from 2nd Week, 14th October) are held from 8pm till late in Univ (map). We'll meet outside Univ at 8pm in case the gate is locked. But if you come late, the OUSFG Library is in Staircase 8 Room 2 – in the far left corner of the main quad, one floor up.
These evenings are an opportunity to socialise, and chat about life, the universe and everything, whilst also perusing and borrowing from OUSFG's library of over 2000 books.

Wednesday discussion and the 2nd Week film meeting are held at 8pm in Wadham's Old Seminar Room (unless stated otherwise on the termcard below). Wadham is here. The Old Seminar Room is at the top-right of this college map. We will be meeting at Wadham's main gate to find the room together, but if you come late, ask the porters or follow these directions:

From the main entrance to Wadham, go to Back Quad through the passage at the back right of the front quad. Go through the passageway to your left across the corner of back quad (the passageway with the war memorial), through the doors and then out of the door on the right. Go into the small courtyard to the left of the white round-ended building, then through the passageway on the left, and follow signs for the Old Seminar Room.
Wednesday 4th, 6th, 8th Week film meetings will be held at 8pm in the Merton College Annexe at 7 Holywell Street, almost opposite to the New College main entrance (map). It is nowhere near Merton itself, so don't go there! Meet outside the wooden gates at 8pm to be let into the quad. The Music Room is in the basement of Block A.

Sign up for the ousfg-announce mailing list to receive a reminder and detailed directions for each meeting.

7 Oct  Sunday 1st Week Freshers' Cakes Drop in for obligation-free CAKE (not a lie!), drinks, nibbles, introductions, and conversation!
3–6pm in Wadham (map) New Seminar Room A, which is on Staircase 4 at the back-right corner of the main quad.
10 Oct  Wednesday 1st Week Discussion Desert Planet Books (or 10 books to read before you die). Our Michaelmas term kicks off, as is traditional, with a our annual discussion of the best books of all time. An excellent place to find out about the best books that you have not yet come across, and hopefully introduce the society to hidden gems that we have not heard of.
— In Wadham Old Seminar Room.
17 Oct  Wednesday 2nd Week Film Mirrormask. A fantasy world created by Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean. What more can you ask for?
— In Wadham Old Seminar Room.
24 Oct  Wednesday 3rd Week Discussion Geek Craft. If you're curious how you turn that ball of yarn into a croched Loki figure, a Jayne Hat, or a simple Doctor Who scarf, this is the meeting for you! Have a sheet of paper and want a space rocket? Origami can help! A few of our more experienced knitting/crocheting/origami members will be on hand to demonstrate the basics and to help you get started.
— In Wadham Old Seminar Room.
31 Oct  Wednesday 4th Week Film Repo! The Genetic Opera for Halloween. — in Merton College Annexe (opposite New College entrance)
7 Nov  Wednesday 5th Week Discussion Colaborative story-writing There will be concepts. There will be a rough plot. The two will get mashed together in a process roughly akin to the spacial intersection of the ground and and a burning aircraft. Only the result will be more messy, and marginally more hilarious.
— In Wadham Old Seminar Room.
8 Nov  Thursday 5th Week Quiz Oxford Geek Quiz — battle of wits and knowledge against Docsoc, Tolksoc, et al. Bring your own round of questions if you like (don't tell anyone the answers).

21 Nov  Wednesday 7th Week Discussion Clarke's 3rd Law: "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic". Is there really a continuum between science fiction and fantasy? If so, what's in the middle, where do our favourite books/media fit, and is there more ground yet to be explored? Come along to listen and to share your views!
— In Wadham Old Seminar Room.
24 Nov  Saturday 7th Week Christmas Party 2pm–7pm in Wadham New Seminar Room A (Staircase 4 at the back-right corner of the main quad).
