Treasure Trap, Kit Making
Date: Monday 14th June Time: TBA Place: TBA
Treasure Trap would like the following message made known:
As we know everyone likes having lots of cool weapons, we are organising a kit make, so that we can bulk buy all the parts, and then have lots of fun putting them all together to make weapons of much slayage.
The basic plan is to hold our kit make on the 14th of June (monday of mayweek), show everyone how it's done, and then get going. The location is yet to be determined, and once decided, the details will be passed on.
The envisaged materials prices are no more than £5 for a dagger, £10 for a 42" sword, or £20 for a longer staff. We are also looking at arrows, which we hope to make in the £2-£3 region. (Currently we are having problems sourcing useful staff making apparatus, but we are hoping to sort this out.)
The more spangly a design, the more it will end up costing, and there is a good chance that the first couple of things you try to make will go horribly wrong (so budget for a bit extra, and try making some daggers or something first)
We'd really like to know who would be interested in making stuff, and what they'd like to make, so that we can order materials. Ideally, firm commitments for stuff are best, we aren't sure if we have the resources to put in the order before we are given money for it, so we may have to ask for cash first, and then refund any extra we get.
Finally, anyone making extra stuff who wants to donate to the TT armoury will be our bestest friends.
People interested in this should e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org asap as they need to order kit pretty fast.
Date: Tuesday 15th June Time: 6:30pm Place: Nandos, St. Andrew's Street The CURS Annual dinner will be on a Tuesday evening at the fabulous Nandos, we will sit down, talk about random role-playery type things and eat before heading off to the Punt Party. We will be pre-booking a table so a rough idea of numbers would be useful, if people could tell email@example.com if they intend on showing up then we'll count numbers and order a few more seats to account for those who forgot to warn us they were showing up.
CURS Punt Party
Date: Tuesday 15th June Time: 8:30pm Place: Scudamores by The Mill In a vast break with tradition the CURS punt party will involve night punting this year. We get in a punt, punt to Granchester. Do Granchester things there (A little D&D maybe?) and punt back. A few safety tips: please bring a spare change of clothes, at least one warm jumper, some non-alchoholic beverage, and a brolly just in case. Hot drinks and snacks will be more than welcome. A late-night barbeque is not out of the question. The Punt Party will not be in LARP costume. Unless you want to.
CURS 24 Hour Mayweek Special
Date: Thursday/Friday? 17th/18th June Time: 12 noon - 12 noon Place: Seminar Room, Churchill College It is long said that the current president of CURS lost his sanity when he first did one of these. This is of course not the case, he was insane long before that. As a result there will be another 24-hour game this Mayweek, a perfect way to finish off the year, insanity, Cthulhu and giant pink swords, what more could you want? Details of the exact plot for this are still sketchy and highly secretive, however we can reveal that the game will involve a near-future setting involving space elevators, terranauts and Basingstoke roundabout.
