    varsity against keele for non-sporty clubs and societies

      Hi, id like for the staffs and Keele unis to go head to head with the special interest and appreciation/ activities and games societies. The sports groups already have a varsity where they can compete and show off their skills. but the non-sports groups don't get this chance, even if its a head to head quiz on our chosen specialist areas (if you've watched St Trinians film 2007, like the 'school challenge' quiz show). I've looked into the societies of both unis and there's a fair amount that could go head to head e.g. staffs pokemon and Keele animanga, staffs Disney and Keele Disney appreciation, staffs LARP and Keele roleplay, staffs amateur dramatics (amdram) and Keele drama, etc.there are more but will just list 4.

    11:19am on 3 Oct 19 I don't think there's anything against asking for this already. As communications for Staffs Poker Society, we are in regular contact with Keele's Poker Society and we are currently drafting plans to go to the union with to try and make this happen. There shouldn't be a reason why it wouldn't be turned down already, it's just a matter of the societies planning it and going to the respective unions.
