Ho Ho Ho Merry Christmas, 

I have ended so many emails with Christmas related comments.. Genuinely though I hope you are all as excited as I am.. 5 days to go! Right now that you don't have exams to think about I'd urge you all in this break to have a good think about ways to make your clubs better and any other activities or events that you want to set up for next semester. Here's this week's exciting notices: 

1) Saints Sport February Newsletter 
I hope you are all enjoying the newsletters - I think they've been a great addition and it's great that they go out to all students (and to lots of staff). There won't be one going out in January but we are hoping to send one out in early February. Please get all articles to Kirstie by 27th January -

2) Hall of Fame nominations  - deadline is end of January
Just another reminder that deadlines for the Hall of Fame nominations is the end of January. Please can you all distribute the following link around your members and alumni. The Hall of Fame event will take place on 25th April, alongside the Blues and Special Sports Awards. Nominations for the Hall of Fame should be directed to the Athletic Union President (

More information for the Hall of Fame can be found at:

3) Club Matrix - due tomorrow
The deadline for the next submission is tomorrow (Friday 21st December) and this is for all of the information on your club for the first semester of this academic year, 2012-13.  You can also make reference to plans for next semester but don’t worry about leaving some rows blank if they are not applicable.  Please complete this as fully and accurately as possible and don’t hesitate to contact the AU for support, clarification or input at any stage. Any submission can be an updated version of the one that you have sent through previously or on a new version. Raise any issues with Pete Burgon on in the first instance.

4) Overview of club accounts - due tomorrow
Please, if you haven't done already, can you send this semester's accounts to Eric. These are due tomorrow (21st December). Eric's email is

5) Saints Sport Ball 
We are hoping to have the Sports Ball on the last day of summer exams again - so hold that date! We're waiting for the release of that date by the university and then we'll get cracking with plans and will be in touch. 

6) Sports Centre opening times over Christmas 
The sports centre itself will only be closed for 4 days over the holidays but there will be slightly different opening times. Here's the link to give you those: 

I'm in until Friday and then back in again on 3rd January so you can call/text me from then. Other than that I should be fairly contactable by email so if anything crazy comes up then try and contact me that way. January is a great time as I said before to get some good club developments done so please do get in touch if you need to. 

Have a wonderful wonderful Christmas and New Year. For those of you going on various skiing, surfing, golf camps.. have a fantastic time (and please write up articles for the newsletter)!
And... here's something I made earlier... I took the main role because I'm selfish like that haha. 

Best wishes,
