The Snowriders bring us an election like no other…
The year may be coming to an end but along with the exams, essays and dissertations it’s also a time of society elections and end of year blow outs.
Trust the Leeds Snowriders to throw down the gauntlet with an AGM like no other.
Here are the candidates and just how far some of them went to get their positions.
The uncontested Alex Lay stepped forward to fill the shoes of Tom Eldred.
Dressed as ‘Fried-Chicken-Isha’ he proved himself to be a strong independent black woman who don’t need no man.
He showed his love by tenderly throwing fried chicken to the adoring crowd.
Competition was tight in the fight for secretary with each challenged to wear the most inappropriate outfit possible.
In order to demonstrate his dedication to the cause, Arthur Thomas even promised to mark his body. All in the name of Leeds SnowRiders….
He didn’t win.
Instead it was Andy Ness, dressed as Captain Inappropriate himself that won Secretary.
He celebrated his victory in A&E after breaking his foot hours later.
Media, Merch and Communication
The theme for the tech savvy was the all-knowing Professor Xavier.
As before, the competition was not confined to the speeches.
James Shale decided to rally the masses with tantalising promises of baldness and vaseline.
With 167 likes achieved, James fulfilled his promise.
However this managed to just fall short of winning him a place, as it was Henry Hayhurst France and his fetching bald cap that bagged the position.
In competition for Social Sec Sam Judd and Emily Harding did themselves proud dressed as HellBoy.
It was Sam won the title of Social Sec after featuring an impressive round of chubby bunnies in his speech.
For those of you who don’t know what this is, viral cinammon challenge queen Gloza is here to show you:
Although Emily just missed out, her human piñata election vid deserves serious recognition:
The many vying for treasurer dressed to impress as etherial mermaids, rocking out in tight green leggings with beautiful starfish noses.
Sam Lax in an ensemble that would make Ariel blush.
However congratulations go to Ollie Clark for securing the place.
The Holiday Organisers were commanded to dress as Captain Crunch.
Despite no one really knowing the American cereal brand the outfits were more than impressive.
Some Captains even brought their box with them:
But it was Will Utley who won the place, taking his cereal box off just long enough for his gold hotpants to be ripped from his body.
Race Captain was taken by the speedy Chris Debonnaire
Despite her costume as the invisible woman Sophie Offord proved herself to be anything but, as she was named Freestyle Captain and the only girl in next year’s group.
