Hey guys,

Hope you’re all having a great week and getting keen for the rapidly approaching Sinners Sport next Wednesday! Congrats to the Surf Club for kicking off the first BUCS event of the year with an exciting debut appearance for Saints Sport at the Surf Championships. And to all those who managed to secure a lucky ticket to the quickest sold-out ski trip in history, I’m very jealous!
