Just for reference instructors are meeting at unisport on Thursday so that'd either be a good day before 6pm, or a bad day after.

And I'm always free......

Post by: Novelty Matt on April 12, 2010, 04:34:29 PM

12pm? That's not very useful for non-students.
Title: Re: Photo shoot for the Surrey Advertiser
Post by: Weeman on April 12, 2010, 04:53:49 PM
No, but we're a student club :D
Title: Re: Photo shoot for the Surrey Advertiser
Post by: Chris K on April 12, 2010, 04:54:31 PM
Well, in the surrey ads eyes I expect they read the line "University of Surrey Mountaineering Club" and arranged it at a time for students.

I can be about if really needed.

True but Tor originally was asking who is around in the evenings this week
Title: Re: Photo shoot for the Surrey Advertiser
Post by: Fat Alan on April 12, 2010, 05:14:18 PM
does it matter? there will be a photo of some ppl - doesn't matter who... altho i would be better if we had some pretty girls to distract from charlie's face :twisted:

Not exactly a student anymore, but I can make it, being unemployed has it's benefits! :P

I assume club t-shirts are to be worn?
Title: Re: Photo shoot for the Surrey Advertiser
Post by: Tor on April 13, 2010, 09:09:47 AM
I'm afraid that at short notice I have to go for working hours as they only have one evening photogafer and I'm not likely to be able to book him the day before - hence the lunch time time
Title: Re: Photo shoot for the Surrey Advertiser
Post by: library claire on April 13, 2010, 09:29:27 AM
Tor what time were you heading there from campus?
I have to be on lunch from 12-1 but am on a desk shift at 1 so would have to be back just before...

Though I don't have any club gear to  wear...
Title: Re: Photo shoot for the Surrey Advertiser
Post by: Tor on April 13, 2010, 09:30:12 AM
I'll be heading at 12 and will also hope to be back by 1 - so should be fine :) my can will be on campus
Title: Re: Photo shoot for the Surrey Advertiser
Post by: LITTLEmissBECKA on April 13, 2010, 03:55:40 PM
Just to confirm I am available so will be there at 12 :)
Title: Re: Photo shoot for the Surrey Advertiser
Post by: library claire on April 13, 2010, 04:18:41 PM
If I can guarantee to be back on campus at five to one then I can come along, otherwise I best leave it... stupid shifts
Title: Re: Photo shoot for the Surrey Advertiser
Post by: Tor on April 14, 2010, 08:48:23 AM
I garentee it - I'm sure it wont take more than 30 mins to have a photo taken - and if its not done we'll just have to leave early
Title: Re: Photo shoot for the Surrey Advertiser
Post by: Tor on April 14, 2010, 08:56:45 AM

Title: Re: Photo shoot for the Surrey Advertiser
Post by: library claire on April 14, 2010, 09:12:47 AM

I have no idea what they want for the photo, might be us posing with some ropes. Please please come, there are only a few of us - will look quite silly if its just 3 of us

Title: Re: Photo shoot for the Surrey Advertiser
Post by: Daz on April 14, 2010, 11:40:45 AM
Aye walk past the varsity, take the road to the left when you get into the varsity car park near the entrance and follow the road around

Is parking at Varsity and need to ask for visitor permit? (Thats what ssp website says) I'm going with it unless someone can tell me otherwise
Title: Re: Photo shoot for the Surrey Advertiser
Post by: Weeman on April 14, 2010, 11:48:33 AM
Just rock up to the sports centre and tell them what you're doing. You can park there.

Title: Re: Photo shoot for the Surrey Advertiser

Post by: Tor on April 15, 2010, 04:01:21 PM
Right, well apparent there is and article about us in last weeks paper - with no photo

and there will be an article about us in this weeks paper (out friday) with photo. I think its under community

and they plan on doing a follow up piece
Title: Re: Photo shoot for the Surrey Advertiser
Post by: Fat Alan on April 15, 2010, 04:52:25 PM
cool, that will just about qualify us for a celebrity reality tv show!
Title: Re: Photo shoot for the Surrey Advertiser
Post by: Chris K on April 15, 2010, 04:54:45 PM
But then we'd all have to say how it was a life changing experience, and life affirming.

There is piece in Surrey Times, Ms Spalding is quoted a lot.

I didn't realise I was being interviewd! oh well I didn't say anything too stupid - most of it is obviously based on the press release

shame they didn't put the website, or how to donate.

It's worth a try, seems a bit pointless being in the paper otherwise.
