Ladies and gents,

It is fair to say the season has REALLY begun. Unfortunately, it has co-incided with a heavy couple of working weeks for me, meaning no update last week, so a lot to cover. We'll begin with the happy news that we had a total of one nomination for the male vice-captain spot vacated by Peter Mac a few weeks ago so, whilst we miss out on the exercise of democracy, we do get the pleasure of confirming Jon Ayres as male VC. For those of you who don't know Jon, he's the relentlessly cheerful tall chap who frequents the track, runs a good 10k and a better half marathon and manages all this whilst exercising all muscles required for incessant speech. Unapproachable he is not, and we are delighted to have him on board. Whether you feel the same after some of the training sessions he has up his sleeve is to be seen...Jon, thank you for taking up Peter's good work. Anyway, highlights:
