92: New Year's Lan

Sam is back in Bundy for the new year and will have both boardgames and his gaming PC so let's arrange an all day event to kill some time. Parents will be home so it'll need to be somewhat civilised but we can use either the dining room or lounge room for PCs and the other for boardgames (both airconditioned) depending on how many people can be bothered to lug their desktops over.

WHEN: Saturday 2nd of Jan . ~10am to Late

WHERE: Sam's parent's place. Ask on Facebook page for exact address

WHAT: For PC I don't have anything planned in particular so lets say Farming Simulator 2013. For board games I've got Cash n' Guns, Munchkin, Nuclear War, Worm Up plus whatever everyone else brings.

WHAT TO BRING: I'll try to source a bunch of snausages and bread for a sausage sizzle. Maybe parents will arrange a BBQ dinner otherwise it'll be snausages again. Everyone else grab some softdrink bottles and snacks and we'll see how we go

WHO: Sam will be there with some amount of family. Feel free to pop in and out during the day if you have other committments.

Comment below to discuss. Otherwise, see you there!

91: Advent is Coming

Will be the Sunday of the third advent candle. I can never recall which one is which and end up just guessing the fruits of the spirit. We had an RPG growing up where your weapons were the fruits of the spirit, the banana flew the fastest and furthest.
Ben is on holiday in town from the 12th to the 16th, so this is the only Sojourn scheduled for the wind room in December. More than likely the only Sojourn in December actually. Unless there are a heap of out-of-towners.

Seems most people have recently acquired "Rocket League" So I'll put that on the cards along with LOL as the main event. You should make certain that both these games are patched and running. Other than that my recent hobby horse has been Rocksmith, but while interesting not really suited to a Sojourn. Depending on who arrives I wouldn't mind practicing job hunting and going old school with Frozen Throne.

Also have a look at AoE II HD: As a lead in to the new years sojourn, along with SimFarm.....

WHEN: Sunday 13th December, after church till 12:30

WHERE: Wind Room

WHAT: Rocket League, LOL, Fun-Employed &Frozen Throne

WHAT TO BRING: Arrange food and drink here

WHO: Who's expected to be coming? Who is coming late? Who is leaving early? Who doesn't have a computer?

89: Gold Mine

After the last couple I think we probably don't need this website any more at all. I don't have any regular attendee's atm. Maybe we should all switch to Tricking? David warner got in the paper for that club, Though I thought it was just a group of mates. Or maybe we should have kept the Facebook page open to the public, would have got a few more random people then.

Anywho, the Gold Mine...
On the 31st I'm thinking of heading up to Nangandie (near where VRBones came from) to try my luck at gold panning, or at least have a nice walk in the bush near where gold has recently been found.

In preparation for this I was thinking of a Church-Sojourn, seems a few of our youth still play a lot of Minecraft.

Resources

Persons of interest: Jess, Lauren, Courtney, Cameron, Rachael & Sasha
Potential Leaders: Josh, Tony & Ben
Community room has: A/C ~4XP machines, no internet
Ben: Oil, Lazerus & Uni
If Tony & Josh can source 2x PC’s each that should be plenty.

Goal:

Community development/ build relationships. Practice organisation skills. Put the community room PC’s to some use. Provide some entertainment that’s different to the normal.

Preparation:

Install required software onto church PC, may require admin access
Host server on Oil, see that other computers can connect sans internet.
Confirm server compatibility with linux?
Food? Drinks already in fridge for sale.

Event:Assuming all goes well this week, aim for a trial run on Sunday 25th after 10am service.Even if it’s just a half hour and people find that it works out then I’ll call that a success. As a backup plan I could also set the room to run Artemis, with a laptop on the data projector it will suit the room well.


WHEN: 25/10 & 01/11 at 11am

WHERE: Lutheran church Community room

WHAT: Minecraft, Artemis

WHAT TO BRING: Guests need nothing, responsible people see above.

88 Land Voyage; Starscape analysis, Twice Infinity

Infinity goes beyond beyond, With the perpetual increase of entropy and gradual consumption of enthalpy, what might exist past the vastness of time?

Mugen

Not 100% sure this will go ahead, Last time I organised a trip here every day less people could tag along. It should be a little warm, at the MtWalsh campground there are BBQ's
If its just me then I'll probably eat only oranges and muslii bars and go skinny dipping at Utopia road rockpools. Otherwise Backgammon, Trekking, Red Wine and Bridge are on the cards.

WHEN: 19-20th September

WHERE: Mostly Mt Walsh national park at Biggenden. About an hours drive south of Bundy.
Possibly go for a swim [here] an extra half hour south of Biggenden, 4WD recommended.

WHAT: Firegazing, Stargazing, infinity analysis & Wizards Duel.

WHAT TO BRING: Toggs, Swag, Beverages, Food, Sunscreen, Wizards hat.

WHO: Who's expected to be coming? Who is coming late? Who is leaving early? Who doesn't have a computer?

87: Themeless

Couple of people have been asking When is the next Sojourn? So I probably should do one a month out to let youse all organise your lives around it. But this time you only get a few days notice.
We have a service Sunday church event on the 13th which means I may sleep in till lunchtime. so Sat evening seems like a the best idea to me.

Since everybody is an individual it takes a while to notify people eg..
Kyle likes the Steam events and contacting him there is reliable. but only if the weather is cool.
Cam and Bryden both really need verbal notices and often already have plans.
Josh is easy to contact but has very busy afternoons so the weekend works best
Tony has lots of free time but would rather be at the beach is the sun is up.
Ben rarely has a Friday eve free and prefers weeknights, easy to contact though.
Duncan rarely comes if his kids are around.
Scotty always joins in if he is in town and we are having it at the beach.
Eddie has to check his roster each week and works nights a lot.
Alex prefers school nights but cannot stay too late.

WHEN: 12 September evening

WHERE: Ben's Place

WHAT: Artemis, Pathfinder, League of Legends, Fun-Employed

WHAT TO BRING: Arrange food and drink here

WHO: Who's expected to be coming? Who is coming late? Who is leaving early? Who doesn't have a computer?

86: =++1/2

Next weekend, Raskal's calender shows nothing on friday and he is not rostered on for work (If thats relevant). There is half a tree in the backyard also, so lets try something a little different again.

Last fortnight we played fun-employed went wine tasting and chillaxed to some jass beats out of town. This weekend the plan is to start off with a Walker style Sojourn for friday eve, sliding over into Saturday. Subsequently sleep in then bacon it up in the backyard with cards campfire, do y'think that sounds delightfull? Eventually finishing early afternoon so I can sleep a bit before the Holy day.

If need be, the spare rooms can be clensed and purified, swags rolled out and blankets distributed to the homeless. Just give us the 10:4 before you knock on the door, I cant have everybody walk the dinosaur.

WHEN: Friday 5pm till Saturday 5pm

WHERE: Ben's Place

WHAT: Artemis, LoL, KillingFloor, followed by Fun-Employed, betrayal at house on the hill, First the Worst.

WHAT TO BRING: Integrity, sence of humor, potions of Darkvision, Bacon offering for the woodsmoke or something equivalent to the value of 50 Shekels.

WHO: Who's expected to be coming? Who is coming late? Who is leaving early? Who doesn't have a computer?
