The Cambridge Unnameables RETURN

Announcing the return of the Cambridge Unnameables! There may well be evidence that we’re a little older, creakier, and slower (that, or we’re taking our work/dissertations more seriously!), but WE’RE BACK, MHUWAHAHA!!

True to form, we have no team picture yet. So here’s one of them from last year, and we’re super-pleased to see them back! – Chris

Team Members: Mary Hom, Aidan Brown couldn’t make it so instead there is the mysterious ‘Ulrich’, Miranda Garfoot, Joe Garfoot and Blaise Thomson.


The Boom Squad

Are you holding out for a hero? Need them to be strong, fast and fresh from the fight? Never fear! The Boom Squad is here! On the hunt, this elite crime-fighting, scavenging team will be around Cambridge for 36 hours of supreme antics. Consisting of:

Akiko - special skills including super radar ears, always tuned into “what’s going down”.
- with the power of charm, she can attain anything.
- with experience in assassinating, flag capturing and general mischief, Elaine is an asset to the team.
Emma - with the gift of the gab she can be counted on to get what you need.
Henri - the token male/Johnian, an essential part of any New Hall team is on hand to fulfill all the manly requirements.

THE BOOM SQUAD, they’re gonna shake this mother’ up.
