Welcome back! I hope everyone's semester is starting off great. This covers a lot of content but it is all very important. Skim with caution.
-After ~1/25, lol-ipfw.com will become LOLIPFW.com. RIP dash 2016.
With the new semester comes more LOL IPFW Club Meetings. This semester's meetings are on 1/28, 2/16, 2/17, 2/18 (See Constitution clean up), 3/10, 3/24. and 4/21. All Thursday meetings are at 7:00 PM in SB 185 just like last semester. We apologize if you always schedule classes during this time, but it seems to fit best for everyone's schedule. Last semester we found the new room very functional. We’re aware of occasional issues with IPFW’s wifi, so we’ll have the club router on hand just in case.
First Club Meeting
At our first club meeting on January 28th at 7:00 in SB 185, we will be bringing everyone up to speed on what's coming this semester in order to get everyone settled back in with League of legends. This first meet up will be normal 5s so we can try out the new draft with friends. Nothing big, just a standard club meeting to get the semester off right.
Over the duration of LOL-IPFW, it has been our privilege to have host several tournaments for you guys. We are still relatively new at this and frankly, we still aren’t quite sure what is optimal for everyone. As such, nothing would mean more to us than some feedback on how we’re doing, what we should do different, etc. We’ve posted a survey on our website regarding the many facets of tournaments, and we’d appreciate hearing from you about it.

Constitution Clean Up
Along with the 2/18 club meeting, we will be "cleaning house." This means that we will be enforcing our membership policies.
What this means for you: If you want to be an official club member, you must show up to 1 of 3 club meetings on the week of 2/15. These meetings will be various times and lengths to hopefully accommodate everyone's busy schedule. All you have to do is show up then leave. Feel free to hang out if you want though.
What this means for us: We need to change our outdated constitution. There are a lot of flaws and Articles we have not been following since the foundation of our club. When is was founded, we were all naive. Now we know what needs to be taken out and put in to run a fun and competitive club. If you have any questions about this process or want to see our constitution feel free to ask, there is a lot I have left out here that many do not want to read.
With a new year comes new events! We have 3 events planned this semester and 1 next semester. As the events get closer we will provide more information, but here is a little teaser list:
Lots of big things coming! I hope you come out to meetings and events and share them with us.
