Cambridge Society of Paris News Bulletin 2

Dear Member,

Another successful Cambridge Society event, the debate at the 5e Cru wine bar at 7 rue Cardinal Lemoine.

Supported by a young and enthusiastic group of CamSoc and OUSP members and their guests, following a most excellent and convivial dinner, the group debated the motion “This House believes that the Technological Revolution has brought more Good than Evil to our communities.”

The motion was proposed by Christopher Chantrey and opposed by Andrew Torrance, supported respectively by Andrew Lyndon-Skeggs and Clare Hohler. Lively comment from the floor prior to the summare by the two lead speakers and the vote, counted by Moez Draief: 15/15.

This then leads to several important Cambridge Society events: Christmas Carols at the Travellers Club on 12th December, the historic Challenge Debate against the Cambridge Union on Saturday 27th January and, inbetween the two, the Cambridge Christmas Party.

And, for the last, we can now reveal the date and venue: Monday 18th December in the Salons Vénitiens at the utterly stunning Musée des Arts Forains, the meeting place of Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald during Midnight in Paris.

Cambridge gives a party, and each member of the Cambridge Society will have the right, an ill be encouraged to inviteup to ten guests, with a total in the region of 250. With numerous outstanding traditional jazz and swing musicians, Boogie Woogie, tap dancing and a few surprises to follow, it promises to be an outstanding evening. Please note the date, Monday 18th December, and start gathering your group of friends.

With very best wishes,

President Cambridge Society of Paris.
