Vincent’s Cocktails Information

We are all set for what promises to be a fantastic event in the Parks this coming Saturday. Online ticket sales are now closed.

Anybody who has purchased online is still welcome to collect their tickets from the clubhouse tomorrow. If you are unable to do so, there will be an obvious ticket collection point in The University Parks near to the entrance by Keble College. It is advised that you have ID with you, and keep in mind that your ticket may be under the name of the person you purchased through.

Just as a reminder, the cricket will commence at 2pm, followed by the champagne tea from 3pm. Photographs for all are scheduled between 5:00-5:30pm, with the evening event starting at 6pm.

All alumni members and their guests are welcome to enjoy the clubhouse following the cocktails. Resident members and guests will enjoy a reception at the newly refurbished Varsity Club where they will be offering 2 for 1 cocktails. At 10.30 all still wishing to enjoy the evening will be able to attend Camera night club for the official after party.

Many Thanks,

The New Committee

Following the election of our new president, Marcus-Alexander Neil, at the end of Hilary the committee for 2013-14 has been finalised. The full list of roles and new incumbents can be found here. While all members are important to the smooth running of the club, these are the people with particular responsibilities who should be approached with any queries or suggestions you may have. Needless to say, we are all looking forward to serving the club in such an important year as this.

Of course, thanks must go to every member of last year’s committee for the fantastic job they have done, both in leading our club, and in their preparations for the V15o. We are glad to welcome a number of them back to the committee this year to continue their sterling work for Vincent’s.

Real Tennis: 1960s Vintage

The Real Tennis contingent of Vincent’s Members who attended the 1960s Decade Dinner in Oxford on Wednesday 11 April also met for a tournament, organised by Richard White. The occasion was thoroughly enjoyed by all, for the sporting action and excellent company!
