  2. Good times.

    Hopefully those candidates for RAG and Volunteering who were unsuccessful will stand for the vacant positions in the next set of elections!

    I hear Lester, Reardon and Courtney are planning to do the unthinkable and sort us out a Hitch THIS term.

    Can’t think of a better way to end third year…
