Whats the score with mess levy nights these days? I remember them (well mostly i remember the first few hours only) occuring as frequently as the RSM felt lonely and needed some rent-a-crowd company. The last one i went to was four years ago and the drinks consumed were levied across the entire mess membership (which was nice). Now i am told that levy nights have been banned - even when the bill is levied across only those attending. This can't be right!? Mess functions are ok - they serve their purpose i suppose, just like months of pre-tour training - BUT Levy nights are when you earn your spurs! Thats when it becomes a real (dis)function! Tell me that Mess Levy nights are not a thing of the past - please!
