Summer Eights Alumni Weekend 2011

Alumni Weekend is all about YOU!
Whether your Boat Club Experience is best celebrated by sharing favorite places and memories with family, with a lively gathering of crew mates and friends, or with a walk on the river bank; Alumni Weekend’s laid-back atmosphere and array of events and entertainment options offer the freedom to enjoy your own brand of fun.
So return, reconnect, reminisce — it’s all part of the Summer Eights’ Alumni Weekend experience. And remember, all St Peter’s rowers and their families are welcome.
We look forward to hearing from you!
SUMMER EIGHTS – The greatest sport event of Oxford, Summer Eights creates a festival atmosphere on the banks of the River Isis. Come to the boat house, enjoy a glass of Pimm’s, meet the St Peter’s rowers and cheer for the college crews. Updates on the races and a printer-friendly version of the schedule can be found on the blog.  Why not sponsor a boat?
BOAT CLUB DINNER – The Boat Club cordially invites you all to the greatest dinner of the year. This event will be held in Hall, and as always will prove to be an enjoyable evening. There will be a pre-dinner champagne reception and a number of photos starting from 6:45pm (Chavasse Quad), and dinner will be served at 7:30pm. Dress is Black Tie (with Boat Club Blazer). Tickets are £40 per person (including Champagne Reception, three course dinner and wine). Cheques made payable to St Peter’s College Boat Club should be send prior to the event to Andreas Kranke, St Peter’s College, OX1 2DL Oxford. Guests are more than welcome.
ALUMNI RACES – Men’s and women’s alumni races will provide some fun racing with both current 1st VIIIs on the Sunday afternoon starting at 1pm at the boat house. An erg competition will prove how fit you really are. We do see the alumni races as an inspiration – particularly the bit about enjoying yourself!!
