In this, my last digest:
- UCPO News
- Orchestra gossip and chat
- Annual Dinner Quotes
We held our first AGM as UCPO. Various minor amendments to the constitution
were passed, including the creation of a new named post of Webmaster. The
new committee is:
Francesca Sanjana - Chair
Richard Owen - Treasurer
Caroline Williams - Membership Secretary
Vicki Rainsley - Librarian
Peter Lumsdaine - Webmaster (/ Publicity)
Claire Pike - Secretary
Mark Pritchard - Venues / Social Secretary
Sarah Ashurst-Williams - Publicity / Refreshments
We had our first annual dinner at Girton, followed by a party (photos coming
soon to a website near you...). The concerts this term will be on March 9th
(UCP) and provisionally March 14th (UCPO).
**UCPO Gossip and Chat**
Mark redefined the concept of scripting... Nick discussed sneezing
fetishes... Nick is 'old'... Rob posted some new stories... Simon Cottrell's
younger sister arrived on the list, and was joined by a returning Beccy...
Rob searched for himself and found a link to 'Sensible Erection: Retards on
Parade'... Paul drank an /obscene/ amount of coffee while some more
adventurous UCPOites drank all my alcohol... Alex had a party after driving
here from Spain... Everyone complained about the new licensing bill, that
could wreck the orchestra's finances (and kill live music in general)...
there was an orchestra rounders match... Harris auditioned for The Weakest
Link (unsuccessfully)... we discussed pairs of drinks for alcoholic chess
(despite piss vs. blood being a well-supported suggestion, port vs. petite
peche were eventually used)... people talked about *shock horror*
instruments and music... statistically optimal methods for finding
girlfriends... the north vs. south divide and snow... Epstein-Barr virus...

In response to James hinting at marriage online, we held a poll entitled
"Should Gnome accept Jimbo's (possible) on-line proposal, and either marry
him or form a civil partnership with him (as we're a modern orchestra)?"...
