Inspired by this weekend's events, I have put pen to paper to record the following - hope you enjoy it!



Cambridge 2015

"Last call" announced the tannoy for the 17:44,

as the ladies met for their Cambridge tour,

and boarded the train with wine and beer,

in anticipation of the trip of the year.

First stop the library known as the “Perne”,

for pre-dinner drinks and a chance to learn,

about the history of a fine old college,

where Red as a student acquired his knowledge.

And then on to dinner in the Combination Room,

for a lot more fun one would correctly presume,

involving speeches, white caps and yet more liquor,

all captured by Darren and placed on flickr!

Saturday morning began with despair,

as the ladies appeared much the worse for wear,

but inspired by Mylrea their guide and leader,

they set off for the Cam without stopping for a breather.

Upon arrival at the banks of the river,

the ladies disrobed and began to shiver,

some wore jammers, some were buff,

my word, these ladies really were tough!

And what a sight it must have been,

to locals unfamiliar with white neoprene,

seeing bobbing heads again and again,

exit the water to quaff whisky, courtesy of Ken!

So our thanks again to Paul and Red,

for an excellent adventure it must be said,

and when we reflect on our time in the Cam,

let us remember the words “per frigus vincam!”

Dwight's response:

Tis true, a high bar has thus been well and truly set
As to how Petreans get the Ladies fed, drunk and wet!
...With swimming costumes, a gauntlet now lays aground.
Where else at Oxbridge might such challenge be met..?
