Training camp

The week before term began, 2 boats worth of Murray Edwards rowers braved the cold and flooding to get a jump-start on Lents training.With a week that included daily outings and land training (if you’ve ever wondered how many people you can fit in Murray Edwards gym, I think we were close to finding out!), a personal highlight was an afternoon off to head to the bright lights of London town. Cupcakes were tested, Covent Garden explored, Oxford Street plundered. The Victoria Apollo was home to our evening entertainment; Wicked!

Let the planning begin for the pre-Mays camp and trip to the Boat Race,

Peterhouse Formal Swap

Hey everyone,

I know term hasn't actually officially started yet, but I've started to
organise a return swap with the guys from Peterhouse. It will take place at
Murray Edwards on the 1st of February (that late because I didn't want it
to clash with Burns night). There will be 8 places for you, so get

I will need you to send me your full name (in case I don't know it) plus
dietary requirements, by next Friday.

Since I am using the Formal Hall Group Booking Form, you *DO NOT need to
book a ticket* as I will be booking your place for you. What you DO need to
do is give me the money (£8.55, in cash preferably) in advance, as soon as
I've confirmed that you have a place.

Ok that's all,

Novice swap @ Peterhouse

Dear all,

I am pleased to inform you that your first swap of the term is being organised with Peterhouse novice men on *wednesday 25th october*
As most of you hopefully know by now, this is the college we share our boathouse with, so this should be a good opportunity to get to know some fellow novices a bit!

There are a total of *13* spaces, which will be allotted on a first come-first served basis. If you want to attend, please reply to the following email address: ** stating:
– your name
– your cambridge email
– whether or not you want a vegetarian option
The formal should start around 7-7:30pm, and should cost around £10. I'll send out more details on this.
Please reply to me ASAP, ideally before the weekend.

As I realise there are a lot of novices this term, don't worry if you aren't able to make this swap. Ola and I should be organising plenty more for you (also on other days of the week for those of you that have thursday morning outings!)

On another note, I realise I haven't emailed you yet about money from the pizza night. I've worked out what everyone owes/is owed but don't have the list on me right now, so I'll be sending out an email about this very soon.
