We play a number of different games, and of course you can organise your own.

\begin{welcome}{Vice President}{Sam Moore}{matches}
UCC has always been a social club for students interested in computers who want to meet new friends, work on projects or play games during breaks.
No technical experience is necessary to join up but if you do want to learn more and get involved with computers be sure to attend our many Tech Talks and Hacking Nights announced on our primary mailing list [email protected]
We also host a bunch of social events throughout the year such as LANs, the Quiz Night, our Annual Camp in July and Charity Vigil.
Be sure to attend the Fresher's Welcome and Annual General Meeting to get the best introduction to the club and run for Fresher Rep, a great first step to becoming involved in the UCC Committee.
Since the President hasn't written anything, it is my duty as Vice President to pick up the slack and welcome you to the 2014 Fresher Guide.
The UCC Clubroom has been the focal centre of the club for years.
With numerous clubroom desktops, machine room and our famous Coke and Snack Machines it provides everything you could want on a typical university day.
Recently, some new chairs, keyboards and mice have been purchased to improve equipment and an Oculus Rift bought for all members to try out, just ask a door member.
Welcome to the 2014 Fresher Guide!
Founded in 1974, the UCC is one of the oldest student run computer clubs in the world, even older than the Computer Science Department here at UWA.
To celebrate, we are hosting a 40th Anniversary Dinner in September where members old and new will gather to learn and reminisce over our rich history.
History which no doubt will be dug up again throughout the year.
Still here?
In that case, my advice to freshers is to \pun{stay fresh}.
So make sure you come to the clubroom, set up your account and enhance your university experience at UCC.
