Snow had fallen, snow on snow. But in the library of the sumptuous Lotos Club Old Brightonians found warmth and wonderful company at the OB New York Dinner, on Saturday 9th February 2013. Fortunately, some OBs had arrived before the snowstorms swept in and Brighton College staff had moved heaven and earth, well flights from New York to Philadelphia, and braved planes, trains, and automobiles to be present.

A slightly smaller but no less convivial crowd gathered on the chilly New York evening, and Head Master Richard Cairns warmly welcomed OBs with the latest news from the College. Many thanks to all those who tried but couldn't make it, and of course many thanks to those who did.

In attendance:

Peter Aubrey-Smith (C. 1957-62)

Alex Hitchen (C. 1985-1990) & Sabina Ptacin

Catriona Lovie Gidaly (W. 2003-2005) & Michael Gidaly
