John Smith has suggested a quiz on our memories for the night:
What was your most memorable lecture at Uni?

  • John Smith: Peter Ryan's first maths lecture in first year. When he pretended to be the guy clearing the black board and asked us questions on maths, finally it dawned on us, which took a while, that he was the maths lecturer. You cannot get that sort of performance from an on-line lecture.
  • Robert Marks: Probably Dr Syer's lying down during Eng Maths IV lectures -- he was sick and gave us his wife's phone number to ring if he fainted.

The 44th (2011) dinner was organised by Ron Clarkson. Read his notes Here.
