Informal Club AGM : 30 November 2001

Dinner at an exclusive Cambridge location – probably 7a Jesus Lane as per usual (2000 was so "usual" nobody took any photos I can show you) – for the crew, all other Club Members and their other halves. This will also be an informal Club AGM and a chance to discuss our plans for the forthcoming year!

The plan is to begin the evening at 6 p.m. in the Maypole pub and so arrive at 7a Jesus Lane suitably lubricated for 7 p.m. The evening will continue at Queens' Fairbairns Cocktails from around 9 p.m. What happens then may be best left to the imagination. Please join us for as much of the evening as you are able!

Members can view minutes of the last AGM.

We'd like as many members, not just the Fairbairns crew, to join in. Guests are welcome. Please RSVP <captain@boars-head.rowing.org.uk> to give us some idea of numbers.
