Announcing Gathering and Games! This is the perfect opportunity to kick back, relax and have fun with other HOLers.
Every month, we’ll be hosting an informal weekend get-together on IRC where we’ll play games and chat. The idea is for everyone to enjoy some time with other HOLers and get to know people they might not ordinarily have a chance to speak to. Professors, Students, Postgraduates, ghosts, Giant Squids: everyone is welcome! It doesn’t matter if you have experience with IRC or will be trying it out for the first time, come join us.For more information on how to access IRC, please visit the HOL Chatrooms section of the Handbook.
Events will take place in the dedicated channel: #gamesroom
. We’ll be doing our best to announce the dates here as early as possible. You can find explanations for our range of games via this link
- we’ll keep adding to it and hope to keep the programme varied and exciting.
The next event is on Sunday the 17th of December between 5pm and 8pm HOL time
. We’ll be aiming to play a different game every hour and we’d love to see you there, whenever you can make it. We understand this is kind of early for certain time-zones but we’re trying to compromise so it’s suitable for as many people in as many places as possible.
Please note that everyone will be expected to conform to all HOL rules and in particular the IRC guidelines at all times. The channel will be moderated for the duration of the event, after that we ask that you move back to #hol
to continue chatting.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact either Prof. Amy Lupin or Sky Alton
Hope to see you between 5pm and 8pm on the 17th!
