In Ball, Guest Night, Important information on February 23, 2010 at 10:40 am

Super exciting news for all members/alumni/family/friends of HMC … This year, the Harris Manchester College JCR and MCR bring you —“The Diamond Jubilee Ball” — a spectacular evening of Victorian elegance and revelry! Dress code is black tie (so boys, you have an excuse to suit up properly and girls, you have an excuse to go shopping. Double win). It’s being held on Friday, 30 April 2010 from 8pm, carriages at 3am.

Tickets are selling fast so be sure to head to the Bursary soon and reserve tickets for yourself and your guests (cash or cheque, payable to Harris Manchester College Spring Ball). All guests who reserve their tickets before March 1st will receive an invitation to an exclusive drinks reception at 7:30pm, so definitely get in early!

Tickets are £50 (cf. £125 for Wadham or £195 for New) and they include all food, premium drinks and live entertainment. There are some seriously fun rumours flying round about this night, so be sure to accost your nearest ball subcommittee member and find out exactly what sort of treats lay in store!

And so, it is time to start thinking about Cuppers. The competitions are:

  • singles pool (boys and girls)
  • singles snooker
  • doubles pool
  • mixed doubles pool (one boy, one girl or girly boy)
  • two-person team pool (best of 5 frames: all opposing players must play eachother, with a frame of doubles to decide if it’s 2-2)

Also girls can enter Boys Cuppers. Worth doing if you’re useful.

Adam S got knocked out by a girl last year.

Please let me know what you want to enter (partners where appropriate) and I shall make sure you are in the draws.

You do not need to have played matches to enter cuppers – if you want to play, you can.

Please email me with your orders…

Love and kisses,

Dan F
