“Scandalous!”, “outrageous!”, “unheard off!” Just a couple highlights from emails I have received about the recent infrequency of this blog’s postings. Well for once I can say it is not my fault; my Dell crapped out on me; my “a” key was broken (and now fixed) after which my HD decided to play games on me. Any how, more pictures will be posted from the previous week and a half over the next few days.

Wednesday - Sutton Club


The Graduation Party Committee went to visit The Sutton Club to make sure the facilities were up to par.









It is true; a club does look better at night with music, people, smoke and drinks.









BOW on Thursday! Uri, Demian, David, Shadenn & Boris









Sutton Club is still boring without people..









Bill walking away from a perfect picture opportunity

Monday - Golf @ Sant Joan


A beautiful day to play golf with Bram, Reese and Oihana; sun, blue sky and not too warm.









Since today it is truly Oihana's birthday, we decided to rent a cart for her... only to have Oihana drive it down the ravine on the second hole. Click to enlarge the picture and weep*








The cart seen from another angle.











Discussing what to do without a cart.









Bram on the 6th.









Oihana on the same hole.











* No carts were hurt during this round of golf. Actually 'we tricked you,' we never rented a cart, nor wrecked this cart. We simply stumbled upon this golf cart and made a story around it for your enjoyment..

The Lost Shoe

Welcome, welcome, the usual Friday Post is here again. I assume about 95% of all first years should be intoxicated by now; the three-day-six-exam period is over and should be celebrated appropriately. Enjoy the pictures & weekend!
