Dear ’Binson blade-winner, 1997/8,

Doesn’t time fly?  It’s coming up to twenty (20!!!) years - or 21 for those of us in the ’97 crew - since winning blades in the Mays.

To mark the anniversary, RC Boat Club and Pegasus Boat Club are hoping to arrange a reunion with as many of you as possible at this year’s Mays dinner.  You may not be aware, but in recent(ish) years the dinner has resumed its rightful place in the main hall so it’s also a good opportunity to take in the familiar red brick.

Our first such reunions last year were a great success (even if the ’97 anniversary was overlooked), and we very much hope you will be interested in helping us forge a new RCBC tradition.

As you are likely aware from previous years, the invitation to book the dinner will be sent out in Easter term.  Since this is a milestone anniversary for you all, we wanted to give you an early reminder so that you have extra time to generate some anticipation amongst whichever of your crewmates you’re still in touch with, and make plans.

The May Bumps this year will be held on 13th-16th June, and we therefore expect the dinner to be on Saturday 16th June as always.

We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible in June.  Please feel free to get in touch with us directly or through the Development Office.


Kind regards,

Bruce Bye (crewmate, coach, PBC co-chair) -

Joe Griffiths (PBC co-chair) -

Oli Tesh (RCBC President) -

PS We’d also like to get in touch with the Lents blade-winning crew of ’99, but lack a crewlist.  If anyone can help with that, we’d appreciate it.
