Our beautiful panel from beginning to end :)


There was a nerdfighter gathering at the sculpture garden in Minneapolis a couple weeks ago, where we were paid a visit by our lovely friend, Snickerdoodle Bundersnatch!  Thanks to Dana (sixty7impala.tumblr.com) for the picture!

Hey guys!  So it’s summer, and I still have to do a bunch of stuff with updating the Minnesota nerdfighters directory and everything (IT WILL HAPPEN I PROMISE).

What I was wondering though, is what you guys think would be some interesting things for the club to do in the next year.  We want to do activities both for the UofM AND for the Minnesota nerdfighter community as a whole, so please give us your suggestions, whether you attend the U or not!

?



Guys. We have the opportunity to name a planet Nerdfighteria

kornkwanky:

‘Adopt-an-Alien Planet’ Campaign Launches Today

Nominating a name costs $4.99, and voting costs 99 cents.  But the money goes to fund grants in space exploration, research and education.  So we would be helping to fund space research, which is a pretty nifty thing to donate to.

AND WE COULD HAVE A FREAKING PLANET CALLED NERDFIGHTERIA.

Would anyone be interested in this? (HOW COULD YOU NOT BE)

Q
Do we have to be a certain age to participate in future community activities of the TCNerdfighters Club?
Anonymous
A

Thank you for asking!  There will be no specific age requirement for activities, since we do consider ourselves part of the Minnesota nerdfighters community as a whole. However, some of our meetings/activities/whatever might be geared more towards students at the university, not because we’re trying to be exclusive, but because we can’t always create meeting times that are convenient for non-students. And apparently there are a bunch of rules and permits and lame things for when we want to have large events.

All that being said, since it’s still so early in the club’s formation, we’re still trying to figure out how to coordinate things.  We reallyreallyreally want to help the Minnesota community in every way possible, but we’re still trying to figure out how to balance things so that everyone, college student or not, is happy.  The last thing we want is to leave people out!  


Q
Why isn't this group official yet and how can I help make this happen? Also, I was wondering if there are any events coming up?
A

WE ARE SO TOTALLY OFFICIAL RIGHT NOW.  We’re still trying to get coordinated on campus, so it might be a bit before we have any big events, but we’ll keep you posted!


Apology post and UPDATES OF AWESOME

Okay, let me start by saying that I’m sorry that I haven’t updated the online directory, and I have pretty much ignored this tumblr for ages.  BlahblahlifeisbusytheTomHiddlestontagisaddicting.  However, it’s spring break at the U, so I’ll use this opportunity to get stuff updated and yeah.

Second, and infinitely more important.

Are you ready for it?

You might not be ready for it.

WE ARE NOW AN OFFICIAL CLUB AT THE UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA.

CLICK HERE TO GO MARVEL AT OUR CLUB DESCRIPTION ON THE SCHOOL WEBSITE AND WEEP SWEET TEARS OF JOY.

Even though our group is based on campus and might focus on the college students here, we still definitely consider ourselves part of the overall nerdfighters community, especially the Minnesota nerdfighters community, because it’s full of superwonderful people, and this is turning into a run on sentence but that’s okay because MY LOVE FOR YOU GUYS IS GREATER THAN MY LOVE FOR A PROPERLY CONSTRUCTED SENTENCE.

Sorry, got off track for a moment.  To summarize, our overall goal as a club is not only to connect to nerdfighters at our university, but also to help make the Minnesota nerdfighter community even more fun and interconnected than it already is (because let’s face it, if the bee’s knees and the cat’s meow had a baby, that baby still wouldn’t be as cool as we are). And of course we want to connect with nerdfighter communities from all over as well!

So stay in touch, and let’s have some fun. DFTBA!
