Freshers' Fair Success

Tuesday saw a highly successful freshers fair with a variety of interactive events.

One of the most interactive freshers fairs in recent memory proved to be a huge success, despite the many obstacles which threatened to turn DPCS Eric Lai grey.

The lack of many union rooms meant a much higher number of clubs than usual were outside, however everyone who wanted a space seems to have got one. Thankfully, menacing clouds during the day failed to deliver any rain until it was time to clear up.

Large pieces of equipment could be seen all over the place, illustrating the wide variety of activities undertaken by ICU's clubs and societies. Beit Quad was home to a tilting climbing wall courtesy of the Recreational Clubs Committee, while CGCU's Railway Society entertained the crowd with a minature railway. Railway Soc was joined in the car park next to the Queen's Lawn by the vintage vehicles Bo', Jez and Clem, with Jez offering rides around the block later in the day. Also present were boats for the Underwater and Wakeboarding clubs. IC Gliding club successfully got their glider onto Upper Dalby Court, but disappointingly disassembled it to bring it back down again, rather than launching it off the side.

A small bit of non-mascotry took place, with an as-yet-unknown organisation (believed to be scientists) entering the unlocked and unattended Guilds office to steal a lump of metal believed to be Spanner. Live! has seen that the "real" Spanner is safe and they have instead stolen the decoy MkII Spanner. Again.

All in all, it seems to have been a highly successful day with few problems.

It was by far the best freshers fair I have ever been to!
