On Thursday 3rd March, students and lecturers gathered in the Kiwi Bar of Walkabout to exercise their brains in an attempt to claim the title of Certified Smart Arse.
Ten teams competed in a true battle of wits, but in the end not one could prove that they were smarter than a publisher, as Alistair McCleery and his team Just the Two of Us triumphed.
With generous support from local businesses we were able to host a raffle on the night, so all was not lost for the students. Many went home happy with prizes including a spa voucher, various bottles of wine and whisky, a night out in The Sheep Heid and a few novelty additions. Our thanks go to those who donated, their contact details can be found at the end of this post.
We would like to thank all who turned up to support us and our Travel Light project, especially those who represented the other two MSc Publishing groups. Our fundraising will go towards the development (and hopefully the launch) of Travel Light, benefiting libraries and children’s reading groups in Edinburgh.
