We’d like to welcome Niall Gaffney (gamma) and Craig Duff (duff) to the committee, and welcome back Shane Stacey (isaac702). The committee would also like to thank Lotta Mikkonen (attol) and Paul Bunbury (bunbun) for all their work and dedication while involved with the committee! The position of Public Relations Officer has also become available as Meabh Landers (timelady) has decided to step down. Please contact committee for more information about the position if you’re interested in running!
