Dear Captain/Secretary

Can you believe it? It is ten years on from when some insightful person thought up the idea of a Scottish Student Open. You do not want to miss out on this years competition, our tenth!! And what a weekend we have in store. So "when and where is it?" I hear you cry. Edinburgh is the venue, the 24-26 February 1995 is the weekend and your club is among the privileged invited competitors. A map is enclosed showing the area surrounding the sports centre and the venues for festivities but if more information about how to get there is required contact any one of us.


The enclosed form is to be returned to Debbie by 10 February 1995. Changes can only be made to entries before 9 am on the Saturday of the competition. Entries will not be accepted after this time and registration must also be comleted prior to this. If you need to change the details then feel free to phone before the weekend begins. We're hoping to make the administration smoother this year so please assist by sticking to the above arrangements. Cheques should be made payable to "The Scottish Student Trampoline Division" or SSTD. Please note that teams do not have to consists of those from the same class. It is a form team competition, i.e. tariff not included, so this is why this is possible.


See enclosed sheet about these arrangements. We would advise making bookings as early as possible to avoid disappointment but please do not let accommodation problems prevent you from attending, we will do our best to help out with any such problems. As usual, the hosting University will be providing a snack bar for your convenience to make the weekend a cheaper experience.

Social Events

What can be said about these arrangements? 'Great', 'slippery nipples were a treat', 'alcoholic', 'crazy', 'better than sex' (?**?!) - are all comments that have been used to describe the social side of this weekend. But this year we are not so sure. We have lots planned but we need a second, third, fourth, hundredth opinion on this so you will need to attend to find out for yourselves.

Please note that the competition starts on the Friday evening with warm ups and an evening out in a local pub and ends on the Sunday afternoon with the presentations. Sunday is also the day of the fancy dress syncro competition (fancy dress not compulsory but fun!) and entry for that will happen on the day. As you can see you should come for the whole weekend - you don't want to miss out on anything do you?

We are planning to make the whole weekend a good one. It is a special year for us and we would love it if you and your club could attend to make it more special. Both of us have been persuaded to organise it once more so you should take part again to make it the biggest and best Scottish Student Open yet. Feel free to contact either of us for info, help with arrangements, etc. We'll be glad to help. Hope to see you all in February.

Yours faithfully
