WarwickSnow Executive Committee 2012/13
President - Tom Colville
If ever your wandering around campus and you see something that at a first glance looks like big foot or sasquatch then do not fear! It is probably our beloved president Mr Thomas Colville. Although this bearded beaut may look homeless Tom does indeed have a home. Underneath his hairy exterior Colville has a heart of gold and a capacity to drink like no other man can. On the slopes his teckers leave much to the imagination. When he's not breaking ribs attempting front flips he's techno punching the night away be it in the copper rooms, Leam or at Apres ski. All in all this man is a beautiful mess and he is the captain of our ship.
Vice President - Ali Campbell
Ali definitely inherited the midget gene in some form, but what she is lacking in height she compensates elsewhere… after a year of being a ski bum (year abroad my ass) she’s back in style, and boy are we glad. She started WarwickSnow as an innocent young’un 3 years ago but despite being a veteran a few pints will still revert her to a giggly mess, a few more and serious short term memory loss will be on the cards! But rest assured despite boogying all night long come morning rain or shine, drunk, hanging, shoeless or half dead this girl will be shredding up the slopes at the crack of dawn…
Treasurer - Nick Scales
This bi-polar man will be suited and booted one second and propped up against the DJ booth, dribbling and frothing at the mouth the next. Incapable of keeping his teeth intact, you’d be forgiven for thinking him a retard, mr chompy has knocked them out 16 times and counting: coins, springs, stones…anything can knock those bad boys out. Alas despite all that, he is definitely the most functional exec member, suave 24/7 some say he’s our very own James Bond, to others he’s the nut job that ski’s down avalanche roots and gets saved by helicopters, hopefully he’ll last two more tours but we’re not counting on it.
Social Secretary - Jack Weston
There is not much not to love about this young man, outrageous he may be but predictable, he most certainly is not. Many have dared to keep up with Jack and his antics on nights out, few have lived to tell the tale. If you are lucky enough to get up close and personal with his arse don’t be scared by the ‘Ben’ tattooed on it. We don’t know how it got there, he doesn’t know how it got there, hell, I’m not even sure we know who Ben is! Despite Jack’s penchant for the ridiculous he is a seriously approachable guy and here to make this year epic, he’s a pretty nifty snowboarder too! His degree in chemistry starts at some point in the afternoon and has done little else but make him Mr Genius of all things ethanol-based, we’re just waiting for him to whip out a home brew to make his 20ft beer funnel even more lethal! Whatever crazy ideas he dreams up for socials next year you will be in for a treat, after all ‘Where there’s a Weston, there’s a way…’.
Social Secretary - Lucy Wallace
Throughout history there have been many powerful, dignified ferocious women. Boudicca, Queen Elizabeth, Joan of ark and ..........Lucy Wallace. Ferocious this young lady may be, but dignified she is not. In the annals of WarwickSnow history never has a woman gone drink for drink with the men. Never has a woman left men in her wake on and off the piste. Legend has it that Lucy once drank a whole box of wine (that’s almost 3 litres!!) on the uni express. That night the shapes that she cut on the dance floor left many offended and some injured. Alas Lucy is one of the friendliest, fun loving people you will ever have the pleasure to meet on campus. She knows how to have a good time so much so that you can't help but have fun when in her company. Although the majority of her dignity and integrity have gone in the name of WarwickSnow, we don't care! That’s why we love her. This girl lives her whole life by a "go hard or go home" mentality, there is no middle ground with Miss Wallace... oh and did we mention that she's one of the best skiers we have!
Ski Captain - Alex Hope
Alex is our secret weapon when it comes to racing this year, whether you have never skied before or fancy yourself as the next Chemmy Alcott. A demon on both skis and on a board.
Board Captain - Robbie Gorman
Big Rob as he is formally known gains his nickname by being well, big. This big guy has a big character and a big heart, as well as looking like Big Bird from Sesame Street. When Big Rob’s not tearing up the dry slope or the piste he will probably be found in Kelseys, not only does he work there, he drinks there, eats there, sleeps there and practically lives there. As a former pres of the real ale society and a rugby player Robbie is the full package and often his package will be hiding in a pair of bright red skinny jeans, they’re sort of his thing.
Lessons & Freestyle - Krista Middleton
Having hit up the slopes as race captain Krista is back for more as freestyle captain. Speedy as hell, so speedy that no one has ever actually seen her hit a kicker, but hey, she won Varsity Freestyle so maybe that was down to our states at the time. Miss Middleton ain’t no princess, reppin’ her ‘Am I Bovvered?’ attitude you’ll see her rocking her steezy boardies year round, chuck a few jagers down her and she might even whip out a trick…
Merchandise - Matthew Duckhouse
Besides having the coolest name on campus, Matthew Duckhouse also boasts some of the finest skiing. This man is an absolute weapon on snow, and isn’t too bad on dendex either. On a dark snowy night on tour in the Christmas of 2011, an intoxicated Duckhouse and Hope decided that clothes would only slow them down when racing back from the mountain meal in the dark., SO get naked and raced down they did. We don't know who won, all we know is that they both lost a few inches. Duckhouse is our merch man and is responsible for all your rad WarwickSnow gear that makes you a fashion icon on campus.
Charity & Events – Rachel Bennell
Blonde hair and big boobs may leave Bennell mistaken as just a pretty gal, but o no, when the ungraceful Bennell comes out to play a good night out will be marked with a solid pissing of the bed, a bad night? Her passing out in the first half hour. Heading the charity side of the club, hopefully the money will come in a little faster than she snow ploughs down the mountain, newbee before Warwick, she started skiing 2 years ago and has racked up a hell of a lot of wipe-outs since, but whatever condition she lands in you can rely on her to be grinning ear to ear and up for more.
Media - Chris Nichol
Formally known as Chris Nichol, Redface is our resident muscle man. He can be found most days in the gym pumping iron and priming those guns but if his not there his probably sat in his boxers on his sofa playing Fifa. Redface should have graduated last year but the thought of leaving uni and WarwickSnow scared him so much that he decided to stay another year and by God we’re glad he did. An all-round marvelous chap, with mad skills on the slopes and in the park. Chris is a social networking fiend and that is why we have him heading up the media side of the club.
