Here is the running order for tomorrow, try to turn up five minutes early and be prompt. You should only have changed from the last email if I so arranged with the captain/head of your team/society, so presumably they'll have told you; if not, I'm not really bothered too much. Photos will be TOMORROW. As in the 5th of May. As in the day of local elections. As in Thursday of 2nd week. Be there.
