CUSFS Termcard for Easter Term 2006

All events start at 7.30pm unless otherwise specified.

Other events may be added to the programme. Details will be included in the list once when we know them.

Sunday 30 April Discussion: Why do humans always have Special Powers in science fiction universes? AA24, Foundress Court, Pembroke
In SF universes with aliens, the humans always seem to be special. They're the most combative, the most cooperative, the most innovative, the most hierarchical, the most psionically talented, the Ones Who Can Save The Universe! Why? And do we mind?
Sunday 7 May Discussion: Dr Who New Hall, Video Room
Come along and talk about the Doctor Who series, old and new. How does the latest version compare to the original series? Is it truly Doctor Who? Which is your favourite Doctor? Companion? How important are the novels? Come along to share your opinion and listen to everyone else's.
Sunday 14 May Vice-Presidential croquet 155 Gilbert Road
The annual election of Vice-Presidents, this year by an arcane and complicated process handed down to the current Chairbeing by a disappearing cat. Come and join the Chairbeing for a civilised game (or two) of croquet to decide the fate of the candidates for CUSFS Vice-President-hood. Please bring some suggestions for beings, concepts or objects which you feel merit the chance to be enshrined forever in CUSFS history (and Captain CUSFS cartoons). Flamingos will be provided.
Sunday 21 May, 8.00pm Discussion: fantasy heroes and heroines 12 Herbert Street
Are you the seventh son of a seventh son? It's probably about time you set out to seek your fortune, then. Grab your knapsack, jump on your horse, and come to CUSFS to find out who and what you might meet on your way. We will appraise the literature available to guide you on your way and discuss the dos and don'ts of dragon-fighting and wizard etiquette. What quest objects are fashionable this season? Only CUSFS has the answer.
