Institute of Physics Award Dinner
Astrosoc, the University of Birmingham Astronomical Society, which I am Chair of won the best student society award of the Institute of Physics for 2006. We were really honored by this. Kym and I had the chance to go and pick up the award at the IOP Awards dinner on Thursday night, it was a rather grand affair. I am not used to being introduced to a room when I enter and having to shake peoples hands. It was nice though. I am also not used to having to toast to the Queen but I guess that is what you get when you are having such a large event at the Savoy hotel in London. It was very enjoyable and I had a great night, shame about the weather. We had huge issues on the way down but, unlike some people, at least we got to the event.
Tree on the line on the way down:
Kym and I looking happy with the award 🙂
Ok I was pleased to have a name tag! 🙂
