‘Social Saturdays – our new social group – launching Saturday 19 November 4.30pm-6.30pm!
Please pass this on to anyone you know who might be interested in this, and if anyone has any board games or packs of cards they’d like to donate to the cause, please let me know!
Come to the launch of ‘Social Saturdays’, a monthly social group and meeting place for LGBTIQ people – all genders, all backgrounds, all ages over 18 welcome.
Each group is centred on an activity (different every month) – the first group on 19/11/11 will be a Games Circuit – a fun round robin tournament of classic board games, with snacks, soft drink and plenty of laughter.
Arrive before 5pm for entry. Our facilitators will show you around and keep everything running smoothly on the day.
Gold coin donation very welcome (if you can spare it), to help cover the cost of running the group.
Please note this is a drug -and alcohol-free space. There is also an unavoidable flight of stairs and no lift, apologies to those with mobility issues.
Future group activities:
SATURDAY 19 NOVEMBER 2011: Let the Games Begin!
A circuit of quick, fun and easy board games.
SATURDAY 17 DECEMBER 2011: Christmas cheer! Card and decoration making tables, some simple Xmas cooking, party games and snacks. Bring a plate/packet of your favourite holiday snacks to share if you can.
SATURDAY 21 JANUARY 2012: GLCS At The Movies. Short films with a LGBTIQ focus, comfy couches, introductions and reviews from our resident movie critics. Popcorn for all!
SATURDAY 18 FEBRUARY 2012: Mardi Gras preparations. Sign and banner painting for our 2012 Mardi Gras Parade float, costume tips, sharing Mardi Gras stories, a Very Gay soundtrack and a chance to meet others who will be marching with us. People who don’t want to march are also welcome to participate in this workshop.
SATURDAY 17 March 2012: Cards tournament. A quieter group to wind down after the busy Mardi Gras period is over – a round robin tournament with various card games on offer – a mix of fun and simple games (eg Snap, Fish, UNO) plus more complex games for the card buffs.
