# SUMS Meeting -- Soccer

Hello SUMS members,

I apologise once again for the lateness of this message. I have had several
requests and offers for talks (with some quite interesting subject matter
too I must add), so it took me and the executives quite a while to decide
which one to hold this week. In the end (and after discussions with a few
SUMS members) we thought bugger it, stuff the talks, we’ll play soccer
instead. Anyway, 3 talks in a row is something we’re trying to avoid (we
don’t want you guys to think we’re that tedious).

So come all to Victoria Park (it’s the big green area near Carslaw. The
green stuff is called grass). Don’t worry if your coordination skills are
lacking, I guarantee that all skill levels will be present (except really,
really good). There might even be some Nerds FC players, and we all know it
doesn’t get much worse than that in terms of ability......

Plus, we’ll be playing Pure vs Applied (stats can pick a side), so each area
has the opportunity to show the others how REAL MATHEMATICIANS play soccer.
Or something along those lines. Bragging rights are not something that
should be taken lightly.

Event: SUMS Soccer
Location: Victoria Park
Date/Time: Wednesday, March 25, 1-2pm

If it’s raining, we’ll stay in Carslaw 452 and play games/solve cubes/play
cards. Yes, I know real mathematicians play soccer in all weather
conditions, but nobody turns up when it rains. In any case, I hope to see
you on Wednesday.
