** Concert and Garden Party **
This term's concert will be held on the evening of Friday June 14th in
Trinity Chapel. The programme will be Beethoven's Emperor Concerto, Verdi's
Overture from Nabucco, and Dvorak's Ninth Symphony (which some will remember
from a WCSO concert a few years ago). It will be followed by a garden party
on Saturday June 15th, to which all old members are invited - it's the last
ever official WCSO event, and thus the end of an era.

** Website Updates **
The website has been tidied up in various places, has new information and
some new photos. I now have a stack of new pictures scanned and ready to
upload, so expect more stuff to appear over the weekend...

** What was talked about **
Various piss-ups, curries and parties were organised. Each involved about
200 mails being exchanged. Nick sent over a hundred mails to the list and
then tried to leave it, but wasn't allowed to escape. We lost Sarah, and
temporarily lost Fi ('til her mail address recovered from the 'WCSO effect')
[avoids summarising a few hundred one-line e-mails]. The French elections
were discussed. There was a big anti-capitalist debate. James now has a
coffee machine. Everyone bitched about their neighbours/housemates. We
ranted about CUMS. Lots of WCSO failed to vote, several of us ranted at them
for it. The list lapsed into Irish (again). People worried about their
exams. Nick helped people dodge tax, some of us flamed him evilly.

What is the internet coming to? I search google for "motorbike parking

is titled "Free Hardcore Sex - group sex analsex fuck" - Harris
