Last night's CGCU bar night descended into chaos as the RSM completely took over the Union Bar. Most of the Guilds executive committee left the union early, once the beer at run out at 8pm. Spanner was missing from the event, however, RSM members were quoted as saying "We know where it is, and we will have it within two days."
The free drink ran out quite early in the evening, but the drunkenness continued long into the night, with chants and songs being started by both the RSM and CGCU factions. The RSM were in fine voice, and anybody who might have suggested that they were weakening would have been proved wrong last night. The banter was mainly good natured, but threatened to spill over into outright hostility at some points, with empty (plastic) pint glasses being thrown at each other. Lacking overall leadership, the small group of brave engineers were reduced to yelling a badly timed Boomalaka at the RSM, which was shouted down. Thankfully, outright killing of rival factions was averted. An attendee was asked about what they thought: "It's very?? wooooooo!!!" before collapsing and being held up by a group of friends.
Some members of CGCU described some of the RSM as being "animals" with glasses being thrown at people trying to have a quiet drink, although it was pointed out that only a very small minority were behaving inappropriately. Rumours abounded that the RSM president stole a load of wristbands from the Guilds office, and was giving them out to any miners, rather than just freshers. However, given the amount of alcohol being consumed, this is hardly unsurprising. Overall, it was a fun night, which has to be said, belonged to the RSM.
