QEC Crest.

QEC Shield 2014_aThe committee has been investigating procuring a replica of the QEC shield, with some success. The crest will look like the one in the picture and the plan is to make them available to members of the association to purchase at an indicative price of 20. We are just finalizing some details such as checking copyright issues. We will let you know when they are available for purchase and how to buy one.

We’re becoming a regular Amazon...we have been making progress on getting  QEC scarfs made as well!

QEC_ScarfOne of our members, John Wilson, racked down the company that made the college scarf. We had a number of people expressing an interest so your hard-working secretary, Henry Embling, has been working hard to get a detailed quote, one of the challenges being to match the original colours. As above we will let you know if we can supply scarves, and at what cost. Watch this space!

Reunion_2013_Small_HeadThis year’s Annual Reunion was another triumphant success. Sixty people attended this year, an increase of 20% on last year’s near-record attendance. The highlight was of course the AGM ;-), but this was closely followed by the presentation by Professor Brian Foster FRS OBE (QEC Physics 1972-75) and Jack Liebeck on Einstein’s Universe.

A select band of people meet a couple of times a year, drink beer (OK, these days it might be a skinny,  de-caf latte), and keep the Association running. The main role of the  committee is to organize the annual reunion. As the Association used to charge a membership fee there is a legal responsibility to properly account for the Association’s funds.
