(no subject)

Unfortunately had a different person run the elections and she wasn't half as good at it. Still, it went without a hitch and there was even a silly candidate for secretary who openly admitted he didn't want the position and would destroy the society if he got elected. This was with self nominations. And he got 3 votes. Not entirely sure what that says about some people within the society ;)

Had a few games of chess which was fun. I even won a couple of games too. And we managed to have a complete go at the Bean game, which I feel a bit guilty about for winning. Although it was close. The cards not being very well shuffled gave me an unfair advantage.

The rogue chess splinter group showed up after some of the committee went over to have words. Things seem to be getting worse. They're still holding a chess night that clashes with the main society night. They've started putting up posters advertising it as part of GameSoc. And judging by what I saw of the conversation from the otherside of the room, things between the two groups is definitely still hostile. the long term, the society will win as we'll be able to advertise officially next year and they won't. And they'll only be around at most another 2 years anyway.
