RAG week is here! Over the next week a variety of fund-raising madness will take place, including charity collections, dressing up, dressing down, running around, cream, auctions and probably copious amounts of beer.
The Hit Squad is back, carrying out hits on targets all week. This year it is run by the RCSU instead of "not" being run by CGCU. Live! hopes this tradition will return to its rightful home next year. The obligatory Queen's Tower tours will also take place all week.
The RAG mag returns this year and will be on sale this week - it looks sure to offend absolutely everybody. At the same time you can buy a 2007 RAG t-shirt which, according to RAG chair Stephen Brown, "have come in a very effette baby blue".
RCSU Blind Date & Traffic Light Party
Monday sees the RCSU Blind Date & Traffic Light Party. £2 entry gets you a free drink and entertainment all night. Remember to come dressed appropriately:
- Red: I'm taken
- Yellow/Orange: I'm easily swayed
- Green: I'm available
Should be more fun than the no-confidence motion it clashes with.
Get yourself dressed up in your best golfing attire and head out for a round of pub golf. Imperial College Union encourages responsible drinking, so don't stay in the union bars too long.
The big fund-raising event of the year: teams will swarm London in the afternoon looking to relieve tourists and residents of their cash, all in the name of charity. Take part in a variety of challenges and get back in time for the evening's entertainments.
The RCS motorised mascot Jezebel is available for any team wishing to travel in style. As a bus she is allowed to drive down Oxford Street, providing plenty of opportunities to increase your takings. Contact the RCS Motor Club chairman if you'd like to Raid with Jez. [Ed - yes, that was a shameless plug]
CGCU Slave Auction
On Thursday a variety of human merchandise will be for sale in the Union Bar from 7pm. CGCU President James Fok will be available for those wishing to buy a small but powerful slave, while those looking for a slave with a large ego need look no further than the Vice President (Activities) Borja Sordo de la Pena.
Also available are the Vice President (Finance and Societies) Boon Koh, RAG Chair and Felix Comment Editor Stephen Brown and former CGCU President Siddarth Singh. The miners are tearing themselves away from rock doctoring for a while to field the delightful Elly Jay and Helen Warren.
A variety of lecturers from the sciences will go head-to-head in the RCSU Lecturers Quiz, held in Blackett LT1 from 6pm. This University Challenge-style content will see College departments slug it out for supremacy.
