Aren't these options the same? I have two modified suggestions:

-alphabetically by first name, much confusion in those places where everyone is called Tom, Emma, etc

-at Seb's discretion. No-one will disrespect his authority.

These can also be the same. Once, when HCBC women were invited to Mays Supper, their "1st boat member most likely to pull at a formal" was sat next to Trinity's equivalent. Tragically, they didn't seem to be getting on; the feedback was that they had met each other at a non-rowing formal hall two weeks before and pulled then, and were now embarrassed.

Alas! You have misspelled Jane Austen's name, and will forever more be held in contempt by all women.
