The Boat Race Celebration – 2006

Sixty Oxonians and Cantabrigians met at Reg and Wendy Mitchell’s house on Friday April 21st to celebrate the 152nd Boat Race.  All enjoyed watching the ITV video of the race, though most Cambridge folk were a bit perplexed as to why no pump was on board.  Discussions about the weather on the Thames were much enlivened by liberal amounts of refreshments.  The toast to Oxford was made by Reg Mitchell (St John’s, 62) and was responded to by Peter Wood (Queen’s 52).
