Sticky: Call for donations!
By brokenimage321 at 03/08/2014 - 17:19

(Am I doing it right?)

Hey everyone! This is brokenimage321, the custodian of the Wonderflonium case, writing to ask for your help.


As I’m sure you know, we have a bit of a raffle at most of our major socials. The prizes for those raffles, which are stored in the Wonderflonium case, are all donated by our generous club members. If you want to keep the awesomeness going, we’re going to need some more donations!


At present, we’re looking for a variety of geeky prizes, valued at (very roughly) $5-$10. Prizes we’ve had in the past include toys, action figures, plushies, and T-shirts, though anything with a wide appeal is welcome. We also welcome lower-value prizes (like candy, keychains, stickers, etc.), which will go into the "Bag of Holding," where we award a number of smaller prizes in one big package.


If you have some stuff  lying around that you think might fit this description, let us know; also, if you find yourself burdened with extra cash and need a way to get rid of it, buying something just for us would be amazing. If you’re interested, please contact me to set up a pickup or to ask what’s already in the box.


Now, to get a little more personal--one of my favorite parts of the socials has always been the prize raffle. To see everyone’s reactions to the awesome, fun, and occasionally quirky prizes we award has always been awesome. In order to keep that going, we need your help--and seeing the faces of the people who get your prizes will make it so much better.


Thanks, and hope to hear from you soon!



Sticky: New year, new people!

readme.txt (aka the Welcome-to-Quark post)

Welcome newcomers, veterans, and somewhere-in-betweeners to a new school year at BYU and a new year of fun for Quark! Chances are you might've heard of the anime club, the bronies group, the Doctor Who club, VGAME, and other on-campus geek communities, so what makes Quark different? Well for one, we’re one of the biggest and oldest clubs at BYU. We’re a club of tradition, but also innovation. Number two, we’ve expanded from our sci-fi and fantasy roots to embrace all great nerdy things.  Throughout the year we offer an endless plethora of fun awesome things to do. Whether you want to compete in our Super Smash Bros. tournament *Y Smash League* or would rather draw Hulk SMASHing in your sketchbook, it’s pretty much guaranteed you’ll make friends at the events you attend. Additionally, we have this VERY ACTIVE forum so we can keep talking long after campus security makes us abscond.

Is this your first time here?


Read the forum rules so you're not gonna have a bad time.

Hadron: The Quark Alumni Forums!

Hadron: The Quark Alumni Forums!


Getting close to graduating from BYU, heading off to life, fortune and fame (or grad school...), and don't want to miss out on all the great community there is at Quark? Don't want to clutter up all the cool new kids organizing events at BYU that you can't attend anymore? Want a place where you can talk about things and how they've changed in your phase of life? 

Come over to Hadron (http://hadron.neromir.net)! It's a website set up for alumni of Quark to continue to stay in touch, discuss Sci-Fi and Fantasy stuff, as well as other things that become more important after you leave college. We'd love to have you come join us whether you're leaving BYU because you graduated, or simply are taking a break from college. Feel free to sign up before you actually finish up at BYU to start getting settled in, and you'll be able to spend some time on Hadron and some time on Quark. Anybody who has been a member of Quark is welcome!

Quark pictures! We need them!
By Splice at 08/17/2010 - 21:44

In anticipation of the upcoming semester, we have a need of pictures! Lots of them! What kind of pictures? QUARK PICTURES!


So what we need are pictures you may have taken at various club activities. The pics could be as something as simple as preparing for a recruitment booth, having fun at board game night, partying at an art meeting, discussing a book, reading each other's stories, or your beloved President pontificating in front of everyone at a social. But we'd really like these images to be sent to us. Here is how we need you to do this:

1) Send all pics to quarkpics@gmail.com

2) Make sure what event the pics are of IS IN THE TITLE OF THE EMAIL ALONG WITH WHO IS SENDING THEM! For example, if I had a bunch of pics from the Quark Winter Openning Social of 2009 I'd lable my email, "Winter Openning Social '09- Splice"

3) Understand you're letting us use these pictures for slide shows, collages, and other promotial stuff so we can show potential members how awesome we are. You want to help with recruitement, right?


So there you go! Start sending away!
