Making Thursday evenings better since 1983

Price Rise

So the results of last night's EGM are that we are increasing the attendance price to cover the increase in price for the rent of the venue.

New prices are £5, or £3 for concessions.

COVID INFECTION NOTICE!

We have had another COVID infection reported, probably picked up at the FGC last Thursday.

We have been slowly relaxing the rules as of late, but please be sensible.

If you can, all those who attended last Thursday (14th July), please take a test and if you feel unwell do NOT attend the meeting tomorrow.

The rest of you, take a test anyway before attending.

COVID has not gone away people and the infection rates are rising rapidly again.

It can still be a DEADLY disease and the affects of LONG COVID are not to be sneezed at! (Sorry, a very bad taste joke to get the message home.)

FGC EXTRAORDINARY MEETING TO DISCUSS CLUB FINANCES - 19:00

We have had the annual review of our weekly hall hire and it's gone up, towards the lower range of expectations thank goodness

However, it is still a significant rise and so we need to discuss raising the FGC attendance fees.

I know I said that the AGM was important, but this one is even more so.

Please attend if you can. It’s free, like all General meetings. (All these meetings are getting expensive.)

Agenda

FINCHLEY GAMES CLUB ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING

The FGC AGM will take place on the second Thursday of May, the 12th May 2022, to be exact.

The first for a number of years.

THIS ONE IS IMPORTANT.

We need to discuss how the FGC goes forward after the events of the Pandemic.

Not least how the club is to be financed, as many models have been proposed and need to be aired in front of the for a decision.

If you have something that you think needs to be formally discussed, then please put it in writing and give it to one of the committee so we can add it to the agenda.

ORDER OF BUSINESS

Generally, the AGM follows this pattern.

(NOTE: For formal proposals, the proposer makes a statement. This should be seconded. Counter proposals can at this point be made. They should also be seconded. Then a free form question and answer session will take place.)

GENERAL RULES OF CONDUCT

(Please note: it is also within the remit for the Chair to decide that you should finish speaking, if they deem that a point has been sufficiently made. This should be executed and received in a timely and good humoured manner.)

The FGC constitution is available on-line and should be consulted for specific regulations.

If you have questions (especially members who have never experienced an FGC AGM), please ask them and we will do our best to answer.

BUSIDO RPG BY FGU AT THE FGC

Now that’s a title to conjure with.

I will be running a Bushido RPG game at the Finchley Games club for at least the next four weeks.

I have four players so far and I’ll take a max of two more.

Characters will be created and rules explanations given on this Thursday, to start the game the following week.

‘Bushido’ by Fantasy Games Unlimited is my second favourite RPG game.

It is based upon a medieval like Japan, but in a classic ‘Heroic’ style, with magic, monsters, religion and wonderfully weird (to Western minds) Japanese monsters of myth and legend.

For example, to die ‘well’ (definitions vary) will allow the next character bonuses for having previously lived a ‘good’ life and ‘dishonour’ (definitions vary) may even bring level loss until that disgrace is rectified.

It is light, with few rules and the emphasis is action and the story.
