Way back when …

11 Jul

Sorry, I’ve been very busy the last couple of months, haven’t had much time, but better late than never eh? Here’s a little taste of the hijinks that went on in … not the June Cafe Games but the May Cafe Games. (yep – sometime soon there will need to be a double blog update!)

Cafe Games – not Supernova

9 May

Apparently this weekend we clashed with the Supernova anime/sci-fi convention. You’d think they’d be more careful picking dates, but we’re sorry if they took a hit because of us. Turns out there’s a lot of geeky overlap between our members and Supernova fans! We had lots of fun anyway…. despite there being no cosplay. It’s not banned you know :-P

2013 Botanic Gardens Games Picnic!

8 Jan

Okay, I’m very slack with getting posts out here, but here’s a quick one – a run down of the annual December games picnic-in-a-park that we had last month!

I have to say, it was an absolutely perfect day, and probably the best of these that I’ve ever run – sunny, but not too hot, or too blowy. We had a good turnout of fun people – though not as many people as said they were coming!! – Well, quality over quantity, right? :-D
Food and games and people everywhere! Continue reading
