May Week Race

At the end of the year, in May week, the club always holds a race in a novel format. In the past this has been in the form of a Punt-O, followed by a BBQ. The exact rules depend on the organiser, but the race can involve running, punting along the river, swimming, pub-O, micro-O, or pretty much any kind of O you can think of! Depending on the organiser, extra points may be given for silly things like bridge-jumping!

The Dinnercrawl

During Lent term, before the training tour, we organise a dinner based social as a club, where as many members as possible from the club host a course in their residence, as part of a roving meal (in 2011 it was 9 courses). This is a great chance to get together after 5th-week blues to chill and eat delicious food at each stop. One time we even had vodka-soaked chillis as one of our courses at someones dodgy flat...

The Annual Dinner

Annual Dinner 2015 at Christs College

Of course, a seminal social does exist. The annual dinner is a chance for high-jinks and to eat some decent cuisine and often takes place in a private function room, away from the student crowds of college hall. It's traditional for the captain to give out silly prizes to everyone present. It really is the highlight of the orienteering year, where we might club together somewhere afterwards...ssh,cindies

Varsity Match Social

CUOC, DrongO and Oxford at the 2015 Varsity Match Social

The individual competition at the Varsity Match is normally followed by a social in the evening. The format varies from year to year. In 2014 there was a black-tie dinner in Stockholm, and in other years things have been a bit more informal.
