The April and July Second Tuesday meetings will be held at Slainte (4-5-21 Ebisu, Shibuya-ku, Tokyo 150-0013); the attendance fee is 3,000 yen.
The main purpose of this event is to give new students (both undergraduates and graduates) going up to Oxford or Cambridge for the 2015/2016 academic year an opportunity to meet members of The Cambridge & Oxford Society and, in the process, gain a few useful tips on how to prepare for the experience. C&O members and new students will be able to chat informally while enjoying drinks and excellent Italian cuisine from an extensive buffet selection.
The party will be held at the fashionable Armani Ristorante in Ginza (Armani Ginza Tower 10F, 5-5-4 Ginza, Chuo-ku, Tokyo 104-0061; http://www.armani-ristorante.jp/ristorante/shopinfo.html) and is open only to members of C&O and students starting at Oxford or Cambridge in the autumn of 2015, although members and new students alike are welcome to invite one guest each. Please note that we will check with the universities the bone fides of all non-C&O members who apply to attend.
If you would like to attend this event, please contact Tim Minton (t.minton[at]camford[dot]org) by Thursday, September 10.
Attendance fee: 6,000 yen, inclusive (payable in advance by bank transfer; account details will be sent to those who sign up; full charge for no-shows and anyone who cancels after the deadline [Sept. 10])
