|Oh, a sailing yacht, of course. Motorboats are for chavs. |
|Given it's an OUCofA blazer I think you should be nicer about it my dear Nat!! I do however second the G&T idea.|
Do you fancy a big sailing yacht or a sunseeker powerboat type thing?
|You and your gentleman's club blazers.|
We're going to be need a few cases of Bombay too. I do love a good G&T.
|I have a fine selection of jackets to wear on this yacht and then we can sail it to Greece for training!|
|Right, he's gone. |
*breaks out the beers*
Now, what are we going to spend all the club's money on? I've always thought we needed a club yacht, myself.
|I'm off tomorrow morning. To America, land of the free. Where guns are legal, and 70% of the population don't believe evolution.|
Hopefully I'll make it back alive and without being sued.
Have fun without me, and enjoy the summer!
Best of luck to everybody going to BUSA as well.
|All conquering OUCofA took the team, gents and ladies recurve titles at county champs this weekend. Thanks to Rob for honourably stepping into the breach, Yanni for bringing the frappe maker (so civilised), Antje for bringing the carbohydrate goodness that fended off my hangover. |
Ladies champ 2 years in a row :)
|Golden Compass trailer in HD glory.|
See how many CG enhanced parallel Oxford locations you can spot!
|For a bit of variety, how about a very cool video actually related to archery?|
Man catches arrow in mid flight.
Gotta love the startled face of the presenter!
|Thanks again to those who came to the debrief last night, I think we all found it useful, and certainly plenty to think about. |
Enjoy the field course at the weekend!

|Does anyone have Heather Golding's email address as i have some Varsity match photos for her.|
Oh, and for everyone else too. they will be in the cupboard as of about 10 mins time.
One of the coolest things I've ever seen.
|Good Luck everyone for tomorrow! Have some fun boshing the Gold and wooping Tabs! Awesome!!!!|
|I thought banks were getting pretty greedy, but rodent mortgages!|
|Ah they have done a beautiful job. But I am now poorer than an inner city church mouse with a mortgage and 5 children. |
|My car lives! I'm picking it up tonight! Yay!|
|Congratulations to the Oxford senior squad as we came 3rd overall this year in BUTTS!|
Also, congratulations to the novice squad, as we came 4th even though we've only fielded a full team twice.
|Don't worry, you in the minibus makes me go more than a little mad too ;)|
I hope you get the car sorted out soon with minimum extra fuss.
I have the challenge with me. Rather fragile though, I hope I don't squish it too much. Looks awesome!
|Good luck tomorrow folks, I shall be with you in spirit. Although not in practice, as my car is STILL at the paintshop and the minibus makes me go more than a little mad...|
Don't forget to deliver the challenge!
|Congratulations to the Oxford senior team who came 3rd at Oxford BUTTS. Even more congratulations to the Oxford novice team who came 2nd!|
Congratulations to Ollie as well for the Helping Hand Trophy.
|Congratulations to Ollie for winning the GNAS Jack Flinton Helping Hand Trophy for his coaching achievements - says so here (well spotted, Nat!). (And thank God they didn't supply a picture, 'cause the thing is seriously ugly....sorry, Ollie!)|
|Can anyone lend me £800 quid? Failing that I'll have to pay for the sodding car repairs with an organ. Can anyone lend me a decent organ to sell? |
*waits for the smut about organs*
|Best metaphor ever!|
Bush Refuses To Set Timetable For Withdrawal Of Head From White House Banister
The Onion on form is wonderful thing.
|What seems worse is that it appears to have actual support from all the different departments.|
Second Life is by very misunderstood. In the media and to the average member of the public it is like some sort of virtual reality where you can live out a "second life" and is the future of the internet and gaming.
To slightly more knowledgeable people, it is basically an adult and very immature chat program (like MSN messenger) with a (really shitty) 3D interface where everybody has ridiculous sized breasts.
I bet whoever thought up that idea did it with the best intentions, and I can understand how it could sound attractive when pitched to whatever committee approved its funding.
However, all that will happen is the place will either be completely deserted, or full of people having cybersex. They might even end up with virtual animal rights protestors trying to break everything.
|Oh dear Christ. They have spent actual money on that? |
|Stupidest idea ever*.|
*well, probably not ever, but still pretty stupid.
|"Nat has promised to put some videos up on YouTube"? When? Was I drunk? I don't even have the videos, you do...|
You see,I don't even have to be in the area to coach you now - I'm in your head! Mwahahahahahahahaa!
|oops, sorry for the double-posting....|
|Some of my Team Greece 2007 photos are up on Facebook now:|

|We came, we saw, we had side-meat. And side-cheese. And side-carbohydrate. And meat on a stick. Plus we shot our asses off (on the crummiest boss of all times, which means we all got shiiit and poo on our arrows), and Marc is now a Third Class archer, and Nat's voice shouting "Pull, Frotscher, PULL!" (add expletive(s) of your choice) will follow me into my dreams. |
Nat has blisters, my back is killing me, Yannis ees a free man, and Marc has got his very first archery tan.
All hail Thessaloniki!
Will hopefully have some of the pictures up by tomorrow, and Nat has promised to put some videos on youtube, so you can all share in the joy that is Team Greece 2007!
|Yay for pocket pie! Can you bring some back for us to witness?|
|The greeks have Pies for pockets! Pocket Pie!|
More information to follow in due course.
PS I have the most amazing blisters you have ever seen. Rowers included.
PPS Rowing is easy. I am now an expert.
PPPS Quote from yesterday "...ehh, Yanni.....Eees a free man *Greek shrug*" Never a truer word spoken, Apollo bloke.

|I'm so there for the PAM!|
|It was great to see old and new members on Saturday. I was very disappointed by the lack of kebab vans still around in 10th week though....|
Alumni: Look out for the PAM (Punt Alumni Meeting) in the summer!
|Thank you to everybody who helped out with OUIT this year. Everything went better than I expected. Wooo!|

Exactly the sort of behaviour you want in the potential leader of the 4th largest economy in the world :)

Tears of laughter.
Warning, there are 50 videos on that link, so watching them all will kill your productivity for a while.
Worth it though.
|Congrats everyone, stonking performance. |
Seriously impressive scores by Edinburgh, Warwick and Cambridge for the medal positions. Congratulations to them as well.
|The full results are not yet up for BUSA indoors, but Oxford came 4th - so well done!!|
