Once again we have exercised our democratic right to elect our officers from a very good distillation of Housemen who had offered themselves for the honour, duties and abuse that fall to those elected to executive positions on the Weir House Association.
President thin year is Barry Boon, well known in the Varsity through his performances and organisation in a number of major sporting activities.
Last year, along with a considerable number of activities. Barry was our Junior Delegate at the Easter Tournament, and representing VUC in the inter-Varsity tennis he reached the men's singles Anal only to be narrowly beaten after an extremely tense and hard-fought match.
At the Winter Tournament he organised the Golf and finished up in the top half-dozen competitors. And this year, apart from the very heavy responsibility he will have as House President, he is to be VUC's Senior Delegate to Easter Tournament.
Guy Powles, Editor of last year's Weir Magazine, and a prominent law student, is Vice-president. Ba Waite is our Secretary, Barry Hume the Treasurer, and the Committee men are John Bathgate and Laurie Sinclair.
