Okay four days and counting till our sports fed/st davids extravagana - this (hopefully) should be the last you here from me about it so if you could all take a minute to shift through it (i know it's obsencely long)and take it all in that would be awesome. (Hayden - READ IT - i will not be answering text messages from you on anything i have already told you here!!)
MEETING TIME AND PLACE:
WESTWOOD CANOE GARAGE at 9.30am Sunday morning for EXEC (both old and new) to get the van packed then EVERYONE ELSE LEAVING at 10am. If you are in club transport (ie on list attached as ps) i need you there (in whatever hungover state/out of whoevers bed) by 10am. If you decide otherwise you need to ring me NOW. Everyone in private transport can do as they will.
IF YOU ARE DRIVING YOURSELF we are staying in NEW GALE CAMPSITE as always. http://www.newgalecampingsite.co.uk/ which is postcode SA62 6xx should you want to multi map it for directions.
KIT - We are Camping so camping stuff (there are a couple of tent spaces on offer over the forum on the website if you don't have one to bring) and paddling so wetsuits and paddling gear if you have it, if not shoes you don't mind getting wet, a fleece jumper and swim stuff.
Also bring any campsite/beach entertainment - kites, frisbees, cricket, i dunno use some imagination! And some music for the bus so we have some quality choonage for the way down...
FOOD- is your own problem. There are over 40 of us so there is no way i am going to attempt a joint bbq on disposables! However we will be stopping at Haverford West Tescos on the way down if you want to buy bbq's in groups or anything else. There is a pub at the end of the campsite that does food and we will have the club stoves there - totally up to you.
MONEY!!!!! It is going to cost â”¬Ãº4 a night camping - YOU MUST HAVE THAT WITH YOU IN CASH SO WE CAN PAY THERE INDUVIDUALLY. If you are in club transport it will cost â”¬Ãº10 which need to be given to lousie ON THE TRIP or we will drop you at a cash pt and extract it for you (ideally tho can we have it in a cheque so we don't get mugged). This is HEAVILY subsidised by the club so you'd better be nice to louise!! Those of you driving (not for the club) will have to sort yourselves out - don't whinge we've got no union transport subsidy left so can't help you, and we are paying to move a van with all the kit in down for you!
Okay i think thats all, most important thing is to crawl out of that post sports fed ditch/cell/rootes bed and make it to westwood to compare hangovers at 10am.
Any drop outs, quieres or general trouble makers ring me on 07709490303
see you Saturday!!!

Below are the Sports Fed Ball seating plans we've submitted and their names. I think you find your table on the day by either table name or the ticket number of the person who submitted that table. All the information you need is below. Please let me know if i have got anything wrong, eg veggyness, ticket number, name.
I hope these tables are ok with everyone. Sorry to those on a five person table, but they wouldn't let me have 3 9's and an 8 for example.

Hope you are all enjoying larging it up/revising don't forget that it's a dinner jacket/dress event in case anyone is as dirty and scruffy as me combined with the obliviousness to everything around you of Andy 'Where am I'.

Great News people, another canoe social is on its way. Unfortunately though I will be all by myself, sniff sniff, no Graham (I'm going to learn to kayak for the weekend so I can stop lying about being 3*), but no doubt we will still have a party.
This Saturday we will be meeting up before school days for a few drinks and then onto the union. Although starting in Rootes bar at 8 we will then move onto a Rootes kitchen for some cocktail mixing (or whatever you fancy drinking if you find them too girly) and nostalgia for those who used to live there. If the weather is as nice as its been recently (please note that if reading this when it is raining, ignore it and imagine sunlight streaming through your window) then the piazza will also be an option.
Nicky and Graham
Ps School uniform is compulsory, more fancy dress, woohoo!

Right Surf trips looking popular (we're at 35 people and counting!) If you're up for coming and havn't signed up yet can you do so asap, so i've got some idea on numbers. As this trip is really casual what i'm gonna do is ask EVERYONE who is planning on making an appearence to sign up online (think even old gits can do so now - any probs just email me). Don't care when you're appearing/leaving just stick your name on the list.
As practically everyone seems to be arriving late, leaving early and going via great Aunt Mable's enroute i'm gonna stick up a SECOND SIGN UP. If you want to come on the CLUB TRANSPORT (ie leave with us 10am Sun morning and return Tues early evening) can you make sure your name is on this. it'll be first come first served. Any one else can do as they please, but we WILL NOT be able to put your petrol through the union so you will have to deal with splitting that through yourselves. If you are not on the list you are not coming in the bus - end of story.
Okay think that is sorted.
Any worries/questions about anything ring me on 07709490303 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
See you all on Monday in the pool.
PS. TENTAGE we are CAMPING no suprises there. I have decided you are all grown up enough (!!?) enough now to work out this will require a tent. If you can't find/bribe someone to let you have a space let me know, but i am naively working on the assuption everyone can sort themselves out...

To all red hot lovers, disco dancers and pseudo alcoholics who think they can paddle.
It's time for another social. No comic blindfolding this time, we're going traditional:
Meet on the Pizza at 19:00 on Saturday 28th May for a fine evening of sitting around socialising. Bring your own beverages. The paddle will be there possibly along with a variety of Tesco value beer ready to test those people who think they can handle a 5' length.
I'll have finished my exams that day, so I'll be celebrating in the traditional student way then going on to Boogie Nights (assuming I can still walk by then) so if you fancy Boogie Nights, come with me! And I (Nicky) won't have finished mine but still will be there, and probably drinking even when i have the best intentions of not getting hammered :)
Me and Nicky will be thinking of some comic challenges/games in between now and then so don't miss it, and don't be late.
Monkey Boy and Special
ps i also think we should have pizzas in the piazza and not because i misread my msn when discussing our next social

There is now some information about exec positions available online. Click the 'Exec Elections' link on the left.
If you want to stand for a position, make yourself known to the current exec, and start thinking of your poem/song and joke.
