Good afternoon,

Unfortunately due to the lack of tasty morsels in the fishmongers, the MOULES et FRITES night which was planned for this Saturday 8th, will be postponed until later in the year.
You are very welcome to make an appearance at the clubhouse as normal, where I will be the bar staff for the evening and promise to serve any drinks on display with a smile and half a let over quorn burger!?

This Wednesday, Steve C will be at Stoney. Get in touch if you wish to tag along……

And Saturday (early) is a club trip to Stoney as many lovely faces as possible would be great…….please reply to this email if you fancy going for a splash ☺

Have a great week. L

Good evening all, Wow. What can I say…… What a fan …

Good evening all,

Wow. What can I say……

What a fantastic turnout for the 2015 summer barbecue. Lots of faces old and new and such a wonderful pleasure seeing many people enjoying themselves. Non of this would have gone ahead had it not been for all the time and effort that had taken place behind the scenes……….

Thank you Helen, for the organising and almost getting the sack for responding to the abundance of texts and emails!

Thank you to the set up team (who were spurred on by the 4 gallon pan of pimms)

The cooks for relentlessly churning out some great quality nosh (spurred on by the 4 gallon pan of pimms)

The bar staff who kept our beers cold and fridges topped up (spurred on by the 4 gallon pan of pimms)

Royce for keeping the bar propped up until 2.30am (spurred on by JD!)

And the clear down team……… (spurred on by the 4 gallon pan of pimms!)

I think the biggest THANK YOU needs to go to Jane…….an emotional sponsored head shave. Thank you for raising so much money for Maggies…….you are an inspiration!
And for all the people who decided to join in with the headshave or chest shave (Dave. G!) Well done!!

……..Sorry if I missed anyone…..

Right……normal business……

– Steve Cheesemond will be at Stoney this coming Wednesday for anyone wanting to tag along, please get in touch with him.

– Saturday 8th August. Club diving at Stoney. The DO would like as many club members to turn up for diving as possible or just to support all those currently going through training. We all know, the more, the merrier. Please respond to this email so I can collate numbers.
Saturday 8th, should also be the MOULES et FRITES night, but unfortunately it’s the wrong time of year for the juicy big ones that are normally served up by our naked chefs…….but don’t worry……they have something else planned!…….don’t you?

-And finally. The Jacksons……no, not those ones….. Robert and Andy (not that I’m insinuating they’re a couple) are planning a Norfolk diving trip on the weekend of August 15th. Please get in touch with either of them to find out more details……

….And breath….

Have a good week. L

Been a bit quiet without an update peeps? Well, without …

Been a bit quiet without an update peeps?

Well, without wanting to disappoint……

This Thursday is our monthly committee meeting at the clubhouse 1930hrs. No chairman, so the vice chair will be stepping up (be kind 😉 ) please forward on any apologies in advance.

Friday 1900hrs ish. Airfills

Saturday early doors Andy J will be going for a bimble at Stoney (let him know if you would like to tag along)

And…….wait for it………Did I mention it’s our summer barbecue/Steve H’s 60th/Tedlingtons 59th/Janes sponsored head shave/Res challenge/melon competition?? No? Well, it is!!

THIS SATURDAY straight after pool or if there are any willing volunteers for anything? I’m sure we’ll find you a job beforehand ☺

And finally…….drum roll……

Our next event is a MOULES ET FRITES night…..our very own trio of naked chefs have all agreed to provide some more lucious morsels for our palettes.

8th August. Usual place. Usual time. Please put your name down 😉

See you Thursday. L

Right everyone,

The word has obviously hit the street about mine and Vals melon competition and the res challenge and the numbers are rapidly increasing for barbecue goers!!

Therefore……

Can we please have some volunteers for;

-Setting up on Saturday afternoon,

-Helping the rocket man (Pete) to churn some yummy scran out,

-Turning up on Sunday to help clear up (if you actually intend on leaving?)

If you have any games for the small people, please bring them (it will aid us in keeping them out of the bar!)

If you want to guarantee that you’ll get a seat……Bring one!

(I sincerely hope someone has done a mighty large beer run……could get messy!)

Have a fabulous week…….sunshine is on order for Saturday. L
