We will be holding a pub quiz in the common room on the 9th of October at 7pm to raise money for our chosen charity (please see the facebook pole to vote on your preferred charity https://www.facebook.com/groups/WarwickEngineers/), this will be a nice fun relaxed evening, any donations are voluntary and it’s a byob event, so should be a relatively cheap night. Anyone and everyone is welcome, teams of any size, however we will be dividing your points by the number of team members, so think wisely – we’re not competitive, honest.
Thursday Week 3 we’ll be hosting our annual bar crawl and this year it will be SUPERHERO themed!!
You can put in as much or as little effort as you wish into this however we would LOVE to see some of you creating your own superhero. On this night, anything goes! We will meet on campus to get the bus to Leamington where we will meet the others. We shall put you in teams so you can keep tabs on each other and snitch on those who don’t complete the drinking challenges. We’ve created a nice route starting at Kelseys, making our way up the parade to the wonder that is Smack! We’ve planned a drink at every bar including a non-alcoholic menu, whilst you don’t have to stick to our menu, we have gained some amazing deals to make this night as pocket friendly as possible. We’ve also got some great challenges on the way! We can’t wait…can you?
Saturday 25th October, we'll be heading over to coventry for a day of paintball. It'll be an early start as we have to be there ready for 9. But for just £30 you get entrance, travel, equipment and if 50 of you sign up you'll get 500 paintballs! Make sure you sign up (www.warwicksu.com/societies/engineers/signups) and get your £30 to us before the 20th!
Last year the Engineering Society hosted a girl’s cocktail night and all the boys kicked up a fuss! So here it is lads, here’s your night away from the girls, however so that we do not exclude anyone, this event IS open to girls, however there will be no complaining about the football, the burping, the beer and the language. This event will take place on the piazza if the weathers nice and if the big screen is showing the football, otherwise we will relocate to our beloved Rootes bar which never fails to show the top games, on Saturday 8th November. What better what to bond with your fellow engineers?
On Sunday 9th November we'll be going Bowling in Leamington Spa! It's 3 games for £7 each and we'll probably grab a bite to eat before/after/during or all three :)
