Woolacombe 1994

Woolacombe surf, Devon, October 1994

This was without a doubt the most Succesful trip of the Year, The trip was aimed at freshers mainly, and they turned up in abundance. The Surf was pretty abysmal. When we looked at Croyde it was absolutely flat, so we went to Woolacombe, It was very small surf 3-4 inches, but it was excellent conditions for teaching. Saturday night, we had to get out the hall by 7 O’clock because of the Bingo, so we all disappeared off to the Mariners Arms, for a Pub Quiz. The main entertainment for the evening was provided by Facey and Rachael. After drinking 5 pints, and then going around all the tables and drinking all the dreggs, Facey ended up on the winning team, and he managed to drink most of the prize: A bottle of wine. At Closing time, he ran out of the pub giggling, When he eventually got back to the hall, certain people thought that it would be a good idea to make him chunder, so that he got it out of his system, People tried to give him warm salt water to drink, he refused, and while doing so, he pushed the mug back into Robin Kellets face, chipping his tooth! Not exactly his best ever Succ weekend, as he also had his car vandalised, and he was meant to be going abroad in the next few days, but it had to be put off due to his dental problem. Meanwhile… in the main hall, we had a cake decorating contest. Involving Sponge cakes, and Squirty Cream and Custard. As the cakes were being judged, Rachael decided it would be a good idea to flatten all the cakes by slapping them, this triggered off the most horrific food fight ever known in Succ’s history, and as usual Alex was at the revieving end of most of it! We had barely managed to clean up the hall when the Hall’s caretaker came in to have a chat. Phew! ( Note: Even though Rachel caused the food fight, she did more than her share of cleaning up.) On the way back to Southampton, we had a slight detour via Simon’s house, so that he could see his mummy. (Nice Cake Mrs. Denman)
