Boar's Head Dining Club
The Boar's Head Dining Club was founded in 1987. Its membership is confined to all past and present members of Queens' College Boat Club, who have been awarded First May or First Lent colours, or who have represented the college at Henley Royal Regatta or Henley Women's Regatta.
From time to time the Club has also elected honorary members; there are at present four including the President of Queens', Lord Eatwell.
The purposes of the Club are social and to promote rowing at Queens'. It is particularly intended to encourage members to take a continuing interest in the Boat Club after they have gone down from Cambridge. The Club is run by a committee, of which the present Chairman is John Gordon (Queens' Captain of Boats 1960/61).
The Club holds a dinner each year in Queens' in March or April. Anyone seeking information about the annual dinner should contact the organiser, Peter Brass by e-mail at Boar's Head Dinner Organiser <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
A short report about the dinner appears in The Record, Queens' College magazine every year. As the dinner coincides with the publication of the magazine, the most recent report is from the 1999 dinner.
The dinner in 2001 will be held on Saturday 31 March at 7.30 p.m. in the Armitage Room, preceded by sherry at 6.45 p.m. Dress for gentlemen will be boat club blazers or dinner jackets. Accommodation on Saturday night will be available in college for those requiring it.
The dinner application form is available from BHBC either as a Microsoft Word Document or as an Adobe PDF Document which can be downloaded (or viewed on-line with the appropriate browser plug-in). (The PDF file displays correctly in Acrobat Reader 4.0 but version 3.0 seems to have some problems. The latest version is a free download from Adobe.)
