Want to procrastinate this exam term doing/ dreaming of doing something slightly constructive? - now with a chance of winning tickets to the Peterhouse May Ball!
Once again the Granta Rats University punting society are excited to be organising one of the highlights of the Cambridge year - the Suicide Sunday Cardboard Boat Race! (as featured in the Daily Mail - http://goo.gl/RkmT3C)
To enter a team, post below.
BY ENTERING A TEAM INTO THE RACE, YOU ACCEPT THESE CONDITIONS:
For convenience, please follow the post format of - TEAM NAME; Entrant 1 (CRSid), Entrant 2 (CRSid), Entrant 3 (CRSid)... The team captain (person who submits the post) must be a member of Cambridge University.
If you want to be in with a chance of winning some bubbly and free Granta Rats memberships, you'll need to follow the race rules, which can be found here:
In essence, the structure of your boat must be made of only cardboard, gaffa tape and/or PVA glue (nearly anything can be used for propulsion); and there must be at least three people in your boat at all times during the race.
Each team should, as last year, donate (£3 suggested) to cover the costs of the event, such as the provision of prizes, mystery items and Council waste disposal. This is most easily done directly by transfer to the Society account - Account Number 23246368; Sort Code 77-05-18
We were aware that whatever time we chose would conflict with some people's garden party arrangements - for this we can only apologise.
For more details about the society - if you are interested in basically unlimited punting for only £20 a year membership - visit our website http://grantarats.soc.srcf.net/
