A word from the 2021/22 Social Sec, Archie Bates:
Hey Lads, I’m Archie, your new Social Secretary. Hoping to see a few fast pints drunk and a few good laughs had this year and I’m hoping I can help provide that. My plans this year, similar to every year, is to run “Circle” every Wednesday, accompanied by another social every week such as a Bar Crawl, house party or something similar. With large events planned such as Cricket Ball towards the end of Term 1 (a black-tie event with the Women’s club) and Sports Ball (an event shared between all the sports clubs at the Uni) we’re in for a great year. Also, for those who aren’t a fan of the old amber there will be quite a few sober socials held throughout the year. There is also no judgement to lads who don’t drink at our normal socials as a lot of the time they end up offering more value to the night!
Every Wednesday UWMCC holds a ‘circle’ in upstairs Copper Rooms which entails three hours of discounted pre-drinking alongside other sports clubs, leading into POP!, the most popular event run by the SU. Circles are exclusive to Warwick and a fantastic opportunity to meet other clubmen, often acting as a talking point for the rest of the week and after not missing one at all last year, I can’t recommend attending enough! Many a circle has been completed on non-alcoholic drinks and socials certainly aren’t centred around drinking.
Alongside circles, we hold a variety of other socials throughout the year which have included:
- 10-pin bowling
- Bongo Bingo
- Days out at Edgbaston
- Termly club meal
- Poker nights
- Mixed socials with other societies
- Golf days
- Club adoptions in term 3
Term 1 Social Calendar – We encourage all to attend as many events as possible as UWMCC has become a staple part of many university experiences.
