The 2008 end of the season dinner and awards evening was held on Saturday 19th April in the dining hall of Gonville and Caius College.

Once again the attendance record was broken, with 85 people present. Such a successful evening was a fine reward for the efforts of the organisers, Rupert Webb and Hayley Sharpe. Thanks for the time and energy you put in, guys.

The End of Season Bash, as well as being the most formal evening of the social calendar, was also a chance for the club members to bestow honour upon the individuals who have made a difference to the club during the season (whether on or off the pitch).
