FanTek Club Events

Hello, you may have noticed from reading some of the other articles in here that we are going to be having a very busy couple of months. This is a grand experiment, where we are trying out something really daring, very much outside the cautious experience of everyday life.

Most of our club events will be taking place at the Place we are setting up as our Video Hangout. We figure as long as we have the space we might as well use it! (Other events will be at the House; take note before you start driving!)

Part of the experiment is to see if we can stand being forced to watch movies, play games and music, and do interesting stuff every single weekend without burning out. I think we can!

The other half of the experiment is seeing if we can afford to keep a Place like this going. Somehow the rent has to be paid and the electricity kept on, eh? So we will be asking for a small donation, $5, to help us cover expenses and junk. As per usual if you truly can not afford it, just let us know and I will treat.

If the experiment works and we can afford it we will keep going, and going, and going....
