    • See the transition of power from the 2016 to the 2017 board.
  • Mini Drone Golf Game - Saturday 01/21
    • Saturday's tournament will begin whenever you get to the space on Saturday. Whoever has the best mini-drone golf score at 9pm wins eternal glory (so I got that going for me, which is nice). There are scorecards in the basket right next to tee box 1 (by the How not to be a d**k book). Scoring is done by yourself and the rules are on the back of the scorecard and also posted on the main projector wall. Golf (and thus mini-drone golf) is a gentleman's game and you are expected to not cheat and score yourself accordingly. Be Excellent to Each Other!
