Michaelmas 2020 Programme

Please bring a face mask and a personal supply of hand sanitiser to all in-person events (unless you have an exemption), and let our Social Secretary know at least a day in advance if you would like to attend.

Here you can see the programme for the 2020 Michaelmas term. We have a mixture of virtual and outdoors events planned, fully risk-assessed and socially distant so everyone can stay safe. If you have any questions, you can email the social secretary. As always, if you have any activities you would like to see us run, let us know!

Virtual events: Keep an eye on the weekly emails to find out how to join. Subscribe to the weekly emails here.

Access statements for upcoming events can be found here.

Freshers’ Squash (online with optional in-person outdoor element), 7.30 pm Wednesday 14th October

Event link: https://timeout.srcf.net/adj35-bt6-5vm

Don’t be afraid to turn up a bit later if you can’t make that time. Meet
the committee, other freshers, and find out what CUSAGC is all about!

Freshers’ Hike (in person, outdoors), 10am Saturday 17th October

Meet at Christ’s Pieces behind the bus station. This is a great chance to get out of Cambridge and explore the surrounding area. Who knows, it might even be nice weather. Allow a few hours & bring lunch.

Online board games (platform TBD), 7.30pm Thursday 22nd October

No pandemic can get in between CUSAGC and some board games! Feel free to suggest any of your favourites.

Craft Night (format & venue TBD), Monday 26th October

Origami yourself a COVID test, knit yourself some flour or just create art out of post-its in your window. Actual crafts TBD.

Punting (provisional), Friday 30th October

Learn one of the classic Cambridge skills – the most famous of which is having existential crises over cups of tea, but only slightly less well known is piloting a boat by jabbing a stick into the murky depths of the Cam.

Stargazing (in person, outdoors), Tuesday 3rd November

Does anyone read this far on the page? Maybe I can divine that from the stars.

Jackbox games (online), Saturday 7th November

Grab your phone and get online for some party game action. We have access to Drawful and the party pack two.

Campfire night (in person, outdoors), Wednesday 11th November

Is there anything more therapeutic than burning things? It’s maybe a little early to burn your examples papers so firewood might have to do this time. There’ll be other chances.

SSAGO Build-A-Rally (format TBC), Friday 13th – Sunday 15th November

Experience a rally like no other – unlike the normal camp format this will be done remotely, with a range of different activities including remote ones and ones which can be done in-person with your club.

This event is run by Southampton SSAGO and will be a chance to socialise remotely with members from Scout and Guide clubs from all over the country. More details at build-a-rally.ssago.org.

Monopoly Run (in person, outdoors), Thursday 19th November

If there’s one thing CUSAGC love more than board games, it’s real-world versions of board games. For extra authenticity feel free to dress up as an iron or a battleship.

Skribbl (online), Thursday 26th November

Put your art skills to the test with this online version of pictionary.

Cycle ride (in person, outdoors), Saturday 28th November

On yer bike

Progressive meal (in person, indoors, regulations permitting), Tuesday 1st December

Traditionally this involves migrating across Cambridge with a different person hosting each course. What it might look like this term, however, is very much TBD…
