I'm booked in for the day time activities and the Saturday night party and being a miserable old git will not be wearing a 1920's suite and hat!

See you all there.

Love, light and kindness,

Dave

You beat me to it, Jon - I was just going to remark that he probably didn't even have to go to the back of the wardrobe to find one...

Hi John,

I think you should just be able to let Phil know, and send him some money. Since the meal is part of an 'open to the public' party, being run by the hotel, I doubt there will be a problem on numbers.

Regards,
Martin

I can never get Paypal to work without a direct link so if I come and see you off Phil next Saturday, can I just give you the £90 for me and Sonia ? I've already booked our hotel room

The meal will be in our own room. We have to get 50 attendees to cover the lump sum paid out.
The Max number is 50 so if your coming book now.

At the weekend I'm emailing everyone and the places will surely be taken up then

Update.
Don't forget to bring partners. After all it will give you a good excuse to bring your car.
This year Sally will be demonstrating Indian head massage and Sonia will be making Christmas cards.
We will be in the bar on Friday at 8pm for socialising.

Saturday there will be a tyre available to practice with your tyre repair kit.

In past years members have left it too late and been unlucky

I'm going to make a day trip of it this year. Rotherham's just up the road from me so I'll leave home early to arrive between 10-11am.
