Topic: Festive Happenings (North) 2017

Yes its still many many sleeps before the years out and most of you have not yet even thought about the impending torrent of advertising useless toys that will never see it past Boxing Day, DeAgostini magazines with an extra-ordinarily detailed model that will cost you 'just' £4000 pounds over 3 years to complete (sounds a bit like Mr 356 just cheaper!) and the constant bombardment of carols from the wireless, but going to ask peeps to post up thoughts for a venue for the December meet which can then be agreed at the Oct gathering.

The past few years, to avoid overly crowded venues and the majority of works events we have had the December meet on the second Thursday so going to propose the same for this year so that would be Thursday 14th Dec.

As for venue please add your suggestion below:

- Jiggers Steakhouse at Johnsons of Oldhurst
- The Lazy Otter
- Arbuckles Ely

Lazy otter is a definite no for Christmas.

Jiggers would be my choice.

You just got excited at the prospect of getting your mouth round a large portion of meat didn't you?

Re: Festive Happenings (North) 2017

I can no longer do 14th Dec so after chatting with the chaps at the meet last week, I am going to propose that we have the festive frolicking on Thurs 7th Dec and then a normal meet on Thurs 21st.

So far, Jiggers seems to be the popular vote as the venue.

Unless anyone come back with alternative venues or dates, I’ll look to provisionally book Jiggers in early Nov so we have a marker in the restaurant diary.
