Welcome back to another term at Caius! Michaelmas term officially starts Tuesday, October 7th (and you can sign up to dine in hall from then), but in the meantime Joe & Lucy have compiled an impressive programme for Freshers Fortnight, which kicks off this Friday, Sept. 26th. Attached is a full schedule of events that all grads are invited to attend, so please drop by to see old faces and meet new ones!
What else is on? The Social Secs take on Newmarket races, House Reps are needed, and a save-the-date for your Michaelmas bop; see below for details.
Looking forward to seeing you all soon,
1. Freshers Fortnight: ALL Caians welcome
First up: Drop by Caius Bar this Saturday (Sept. 27) from 8-11pm for an informal bar evening to meet the new Freshers
Come to Saffron Brasserie for the ‘international curry dinner’ on Sunday at 7.30pm (sign-up required). OR, try your luck bowling on Monday (8-10pm) or dining on fresh tapas and classy cocktails at La Raza on Wednesday, October 1st (sign-up required).

2. Caius at the GEE-GEES!
For those of you who enjoy high-octane-adrenaline-fuelled sport, others who used to enjoy F1 but now disapprove of the carbon footprint, fellows who appreciate fine bloodstock, and some of you who simply enjoy boozing in a crowd, the Cambridgeshire day at Newmarket is what you have been waiting for. Saturday the 28th September, suited and booted; be there with a racing post under one arm and a little float to get you going in one of the liveliest investment playgrounds outside wall street!
Get in touch < gjt32 > if keen. Tickets are £17 but might be able to negotiate with a larger group.
Afterwards I suggest drifting into Newmarket to experience a lively, pugilistically charged atmosphere at the Yard pub, which is opposite SUFFOLK’S BIGGEST NIGHTCLUB; De Niro’s. Wow! A palace of profligacy. Newmarket is very close, again with numbers we can likely order a minibus, and it is served by the train.
3. House Reps needed: 3, 5, 8 Harvey
We’re still looking for House Rep volunteers for 3, 5, and 8 Harvey Road. In exchange for a modicum of labour (regularly disposing of the recycling bin, keeping abreast of any problems in the house, and the occasional solicitation from your lovely MCR Committee about heating/draughtiness), you are renumerated £20 from your college bill.
If you’re interested, please email arpf2.
4. Save the Date: Michaelmas Bop
The first bop of the year will be Friday, Oct. 17th at Harvey Court – more details to follow from your Social Secs!
