Week 11: Arrow and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D

ArrowFirst off, thank you to everyone who came along to our trivia night last Friday and made it such a great event! Pizza was eaten, prizes were won, and everyone had a good time.

Even better, we were able to hold our AGM and elections as scheduled. Luckily, we had a bunch of great people step up to help run the club this year. I’m thrilled to present the SpockSoc exec for 2014:

President: Ben Koschnick

Vice-President: Jessica Butcher
Secretary: Samantha Wardhaugh

Treasurer: Kathrin Bain
ARC Delegate/Publicist: Sarah Davies

Of course, we’ll be resuming our regular screening this Friday. We’ve got a double feature on this week- first, we’ll be finishing off the last two episodes of Season One of Arrow, and then beginning the first few episodes of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.!

For those of you who haven’t seen Arrow:

The series follows Oliver Queen, billionaire playboy of Starling City, who spends five years stranded on an island following a shipwreck that claims the life of everyone else on board, including his father. Upon his return to Starling City, he is reunited with his mother, Moira, and her new husband, Walter, the former CFO of his father’s company who is now the CEO.  During the day, Oliver plays the billionaire playboy; at night, he becomes a green-hooded vigilante, following through with his father’s dying wishes to right the wrongs of the Queen family, fight the ills of society, and restore Starling City to its former glory.
And while I’m sure Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. needs little introduction…
Following the events of The Avengers, S.H.I.E.L.D. (Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division) sets up a small team, headed by Agent Phil Coulson, to investigate superhuman and supervillain activity.
Seriously, it has Joss Whedon and a breathing Agent Coulson. I really don’t think I need to sell this one.
We’ll be meeting this Friday in Macauley Theatre. Screening starts a little bit after 5:00, and pizza run about 7.
Last but definitely not least, this Friday we will be running another bake sale! The details are up on Facebook, but the plan is very similar to our first one a few weeks ago- we’ll be set up on the Library Lawn, from 10:00 onwards. Don’t forget to come by and share delicious treats!
As noted above, I have passed on the president’s hat, and starting next week, Ben will be taking over his rightful place as town crier. I just wanted to take this chance to thank everyone for a great year at SpockSoc.We’ve watched a lot of fun shows, gained a bunch of new members, and
organized a big event for the first time in a few years. I’ve had a really good time, and I hope you all have as well. I’m sure 2014 will be even better.
See you at the screenings!
