CUSAGC isn't just about getting cold, wet and muddy (a.k.a. 'being adventurous'). In fact, you could become a member and never actually have to experience any of those feelings! Here's just a taste of what we get up to (check out the punt joust!):
- Ice skating
- The Punt Joust
- Games and quizzes
- Formal hall swaps
- Midsummer Common fireworks
Lunches: Every Wednesday at 1pm CUSAGC has a lunch at a member's room/house(or outside in the sun!). This dates back to the days before we could spam everyone on email lists, so it was a regular time for people to find out what was happening. Now it's a nice way to catch up when we're not doing anything else, and a very welcome break from revision in the Easter Term. Lunch is traditionally two sandwiches with a choice of fillings, crisps, some cake and a couple of Jaffa Cakes. Occasionally though the host will break with tradition! It's free if it's your first, thereafter it's £1.50
Punt lunches: These take place at weekends during Easter and early Michaelmas term and involve all the normal lunch fare with the added bonus of a couple of hours' leisurely punting along the Cam, with a picnic lunch on the bank somewhere. Your first is free, after that it's £2.50.
Superlunch: The last lunch of every term (often on a Thursday) is Superlunch, where a cooked meal is provided.
Pub Meets:Every now and again through the winter, usually on a Sunday evening, CUSAGC has a pub meet. Because, after all, we are students.
Annual Dinner:Like most Cambridge societies, we have an annual dinner which is held on a Saturday in the middle of Lent Term, the same weekend as the AGM. It's a black tie, several course meal in one of the colleges. It's a great opportunity to meet CUSAGC 'fogies' who often come back to Cambridge for the event. Also, there are plenty of awards given for antics over the past year!
Garden Party:Another tradition amongst Cambridge clubs and societies, after exams and before May Week we have a garden party held in a garden somewhere (often at one of the colleges). It's usually followed by a BBQ and is the same weekend as the punt joust, so it's another event fogies return for.
SSAGO Ball: This is organised by a SSAGO group in the spring, usually in late March. It's a black tie ball (including food) and usually with a variety of ticket options, some including hotel rooms. Details appear on www.ssagorally.org.uk/ball at the appropriate time. Previous and future balls:
