posted 7 May 2015, 02:18 by Athletic Union President
Dear All,

One of the final bulletins of the year so just a few things for you this week: 

Admin deadline:
A reminder that the final deadline for re-affiliation and any outstanding claims is tomorrow, Friday 8th May. Late submission may result in a fine for your club so please make every effort to complete it on time. With the end of the year approaching, please also make sure that club pigeon holes are emptied before leaving for the summer.

Sports Ball:
Tables have now been allocated for Sports Ball on 21st May. Demand has been exceptionally high this year so if you are unable to fill your allocations, please let me know and I can pass the spaces on to another club. Tables must be confirmed and payment made by Wednesday 13th May.
We have a much larger capacity for the Afterparty, so anyone who missed out on dinner can still join in with the celebrations. Tickets are £10, including return transport to Dundee and entry to Liquid, and can be reserved by emailing me.

Next week is Elaine Mason's last week before the summer so any requests for transport must be in by Friday 15th May to guarantee the booking.

Pre Season Accommodation:
We have managed to negotiate accommodation in Andrew Melville during Pre Season this year, for £60 for the week. The cost will need to be met by either the individual or the club - 
we will shortly be contacting incoming students who have listed sport in their personal statement to invite them to pre season so be aware that this is an option and have a think if you would be able to contribute to the cost of their accommodation.

Blues & Colours Winners:
Congratulations to all of our award winners! If you were unable to make the Awards Night last week, Blues & Half Blues certificates can be collected from the AU Office. Colours certificates have been put in club pigeon holes to be distributed.

Promotional video:
We're incredibly excited to have launched our first Saints Sport Promotional Video. Filmed and produced by BAFTA and EMMY award winner Keith Partridge, we're using this video to change perceptions of student life at St Andrews and show that students here get a world class academic experience along with the opportunity to perform at high levels in sport. This is something that no other university in Scotland has done and we would really appreciate your help in sharing it.
