    We were unable to book Queens’ this term. Nobody else stepped up to book a room in their college, and Robinson’s Auditorium Lounge has other events scheduled on some days, so we will be meeting in the Umney Lounge, Robinson College for all meetings, on both Tuesdays and Sundays.

  • Bonus Meetings

    With exams looming upon us, CUAMS is switching to bonus meetings for the rest of the Easter term.

  • Moving Back to Robinson

    After moving main meetings from Robinson to the more central Queens’ for Lent, we are now forced to move them back for Easter as Queens’ has quiet periods covering almost the entire term. While farther from the town centre, Robinson has always been very kind to us, and once again it welcomes us in the Auditorium Lounge every Tuesday.

  • AGM

    Our AGM took place yesterday, but one could be forgiven for not noticing it: all committee positions other than President and Treasurer have been retained by their previous holders. Yes, you read that right: Xanth has finally succeeded in stepping down after eight years of benevolent reign. Our new Supreme Leader is former Treasurer Alex, while the Treasurer position is taken up by Eduard.

  • All Meetings Moved

    Due to :reasons:, all four of the remaining meetings are moved to the Umney Lounge at Robinson College. To get to the Umney Lounge, go through the main entrance to Robinson (on the corner of Grange Road and Herschel Road), immediately turn right and walk down the passage all the way down through two sets of glass doors. At this point you will see a sign saying Umney Theatre diagonally forward and left; the door next to the sign is the entrance to the Umney Lounge. There is also a college plan available if you prefer graphics to words.

  • Main Meetings Moved

    This is just a reminder that all further main meetings will be taking place in the R-Block Common Room in Sidney Sussex College. All times remain the same. The R-Block Common Room is where our Sunday meetings are held, and directions are available on the Sunday meeting page.

  • AGM

    Yet another year has passed, and yet another AGM has taken place. Another absent attempt to seize presidential power failed to be prevented, while each of the other committee positions as ever had exactly one candidate running for it. With the evil RON soundly defeated by the vote, the glorious new committee consists of Xanth the President, Florence the Secretary, Alex the Treasurer, Lech the Catering Officer and Oleg the Webmaster. Kai is staying as Internal Officer for the time being; however, he is graduating this year, so we will need someone, preferably a member of King’s College, to replace him by Michaelmas.

  • Change of Times Next Term

    Due to some events at King’s, two of our main meetings are going to have to move from Tuesday to Wednesday. Those meetings are 31/01 -> 01/02 and 28/02 -> 29/02. The meetings will still be from 7 - 10pm in the Chetwynd Room. We’ll be reminding everyone by email before the meeting.

  • Easter Term

    Welcome back everyone to the last term of this Cambridge year. CUAMS, unlike most other societies, is still going strong with the programme. Main meetings are back on Thursdays, but will be taking place in the Munby Room (see the main meetings page for directions). Also please note that Sunday meetings are taking place from 3-6pm, and not 4-7pm. Series from last term will be continuing in their respective meetings, until June where both Thursdays and Sundays will become bonus meetings (see schedule for more details).

  • AGM

    Once again in true CUAMS style, this year’s elections were a shining example of democracy. The ever-present threat of RON fazed none of the contenders, with Xanth continuing his presidency for his seventh year (prophecies foretell an eight year of his benevolent endless reign). Katherine, Tom and Lech have also retained their positions as, respectively, secretary, internal officer and catering officer. Alex was elected as the new treasurer, with Kai assuming the position of webmaster, and Tom (a different one) practically bullied into becoming an eventual catering officer for a short period of time. Thanks to the outgoing treasurer Yingke and webmaster James for their hard work over the last year!

  • Changes to the Schedule

    Firstly, we apologise for the disruption to last week’s Thursday meeting. We have checked with King’s, and the very noisy group who was in Keynes Hall last week will not be there again for the next couple of weeks, so meeetings will continue to be in the Chetwynd Room until further notice. If you missed our move up to the Mumby Room, you’ll probably want to get caught up as soon as possible. To do so, get in contact with a committee member or come on to IRC.

    Read more...
  • Lent Term

    Welcome back to Cambridge; hopefully everyone’s well rested from the Christmas break. The first main change to CUAMS this term is that main meetings are now on Fridays, not Thursdays. Unfortunately this is due to room-booking circumstances outside of our control, and we apologise if it clashes with any other Friday commitments people might have. The first main meeting of term is on Friday, 28th January, and remains in the Chetwynd Room. Sunday meetings start on Sunday, 23rd January, and are in every respect the same as they were last term. More complete information can be found on the schedule page.

    Read more...
  • Meetings

    Hopefully everyone is enjoying the series that CUAMS has been showing, some of which will continue into next term. As we near the end of the first term, there are a couple of changes to the norm worth noting. Firstly, this week’s main meeting is on Friday, 26th November rather than the usual Thursday. Secondly, this week’s Sunday meeting is starting at 3pm rather than the usual 4pm. We’ve also got some end-of-term bonus meetings coming up - more info on those nearer the time.

    Read more...
  • Sunday Meetings

    If there’s anyone who can’t make it to our Thursday meetings, or for whom three hours of CUAMS per week just isn’t enough, we also have Sunday meetings, the first of which is tomorrow (that’s Sunday, 24th October), running from 4pm to 7pm. They take place in Sidney Sussex college, R-Block Common Room, which for old members is the same place as last year. The route there is a bit complicated, so for new members, we’ll have people waiting just inside the main entrance to Sidney Sussex to take you to the room where our meetings are held. Our room for Sunday meetings is smaller than the room for Thursday meetings, so if you’re only planning on coming to one meeting per week and it is otherwise an arbitrary decision, we recommend Thursdays.

    Read more...
  • Weekly Meetings

    Hopefully everyone enjoyed our squash (and especially the amazing Summer Wars). Our main meetings are on Thursdays, with the first one at 7pm on Thursday, 21st October. Thursday meetings this term (and probably all through this year) will take place in the same place as the squash i.e. the Chetwynd Room, King’s College.

    Thanks to everyone who visited our stall and signed up for the mailing list at the Freshers’ Fair. We can now confirm that our Squash will be held in the Chetwynd Room, King’s College, from 7pm to 10pm on Thusday, 14th October. The Chetwynd Room is where all our main meetings will be this term, and directions can be found at the top of our Main Meetings page.

We have, however, been allocated a stall at the Freshers’ Fair. The fair takes place at Kelsey Kerridge on the 5th October between 11am and 6:30pm and on the 6th October between 10am and 3pm. We’ll be at stall D12 (a map of the stall locations can be found here) - come along to ask any questions you might have, and to sign up to our mailing list.
