And the next guilds President suddenly realises what he's let himself in for! There are no photos of him not looking aghast, and now there won't be until August 2008!

On a more serious note, congratulations to those who were elected- and there are still a couple of vacancies left for those who just missed out (though I can't imagine JJvG volunteering for LMS...)

Congratulations Gessneck... for defeating RON this time...

Mar 22 2007 23:25

spanner and bolt bearers are Mark Mearing-Smith and Links, perhaps Links will actually do something with the mascots next year...

Mar 23 2007 17:32

Links have done a great deal, especially yesterday night at the RCSU event.

Mark Mearing-Smith will assist the Links when necessary. Neither party should see this as a competition to own Spanner or Bolt. I would have ran for it, only if I have a pair of stronger arms and legs.

so according to the guilds president the spanner bearer 'owns' the violate mascot and leavers can run in elections?
