Men Vs. Boys Fundraiser The Football Club and Rugby Club went toe to toe earlier this month in the first ever men vs. boys fundraiser which turned out to be an enthralling event. One half of football and one half of touch rugby where played out, split by the first ever performance of the new Heriot Watt Cheerleading Squad, with the Rugby boys coming out on top by a score-line of 7-5.

Pictured above are members from both teams and to the side are the cheerleaders performing.

Watt Wears Watt On behalf of the Netball and Football Clubs we just wanted to say thanks so much to everyone who came to Watt Wears What. Hope everyone had a good night, and we can confirm we have raised at least over ÂŁ1500, and there is still more money coming in, which will be spilt evenly between the netball and football clubs and Penumbra. We couldn't have made it without the support from everyone there, so thanks again. Watch this space for next semesters fundraisers....

Duncan Murray Day HWSSC hired 2 coaches and part of the indoor slope at Snow Factor in Glasgow and provided a fun competition that gave individuals the opportunity to try out racing and freestyle within their own ability level. This event was more than a competition; it was all about getting involved but most importantly enjoying yourself. The event was then followed by a social which acted as the launch night for the Christmas ski trip to Val Thorens. Throughout the day there was prizes for the competitors, a free prize draw for everyone that entered along with fancy dress prizes. Prizes included free snowboard/Skis and a FREE PLACE ON THE XMAS TRIP won by David Montgomery. The Poker Night fundraiser was a great success, raising just over ÂŁ100 for Penumbra. A great night was had by all that attended, and it saw some impressive Poker playing skills, resulting in a head to head game to determine a winner. A big thanks to the Poker Society for helping to make our event a Success!!
