2014 VIOCS Boat Race Celebration

 

FRIDAY 9th MAY – 6:30 to 9:30 pm

Dear Oxonians and Cantabrigians,

Once again the Vancouver Island Oxford and Cambridge Society invites all those with Oxford or Cambridge affiliation and their guests to attend an evening of celebration marking the 2014 Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race, which was held this year on Sunday, 6th April.

This year’s boat race was the 2nd victory for Oxford boat club president Malcolm Howard of Victoria who was joined this year by fellow Canadian and University of Victoria graduate Tom Watson.  Liz Fenje, also of Victoria, was a member of the winning Oxford crew in the women’s event. This link will take you to the Times Colonist article.

Gordon and Sigrid Walker have once again very kindly offered to host this year’s event at their home, in Oak Bay on Friday, 9th May.

The celebration will provide an opportunity to meet up with friends old and new as well as a chance to watch the video of the race and hear toasts to each University and their rowing crews while enjoying hot and cold hors d’oeuvres and drinks.  The cost of the event is $33 per person.

An invitation email with full details has been sent to all those on our mailing list.  If you have not received an invitation please contact  events@viocs.ca.

We look forward to seeing you soon.
