I've just moved to Wokingham so I suppose that qualifies me now as a Reading Fooser. Any regular nights?

Anyone live in Wokingham/Winnersh?

You must be doing alright for yourself if you can afford to live in wokingham. Unless its more pikey winnersh than posh wokingham.

Anyway I was thinking of playing a few games down t-turtle tonight about 10:30 pm if your interested.

Can't you lot turn up a bit earlier than that? Makes it difficult for people travelling there and back!

(Not that I can make it tonight myself anyway).

That was a pretty good night on Friday, any idea who that Peter guy playing in defence for me was? Not bad huh?

My 3-bar was the best I've ever seen it - but I still don't have a 5-bar whatsoever (the cause of our eventual downfall).

Same again next week?

Too much testosterone on my part there - I ended up flagging at midnight and took 1am train back.

Very enjoyable evening shafting n00bs with Ben til then, tho'.

Ah! If there is going to something going on in Reading, email me the next time a game is up and I'll turn up with my doubles partner

Is there a regular date now at the Turtle?

Phil, there's no "official" night for us at the Turtle, that'd involve someone actually trying to organise us all!

At the moment we generally just turn up on a friday night (usually after 10pm) and rely on the fact that a fair number of others do. Turnouts vary greatly, some weeks there will be 10+ people willing to play, other weeks you'll struggle to get the minimum four!

Saturdays nights (same times) are usually a good bet too.

That said, I probably won't be down tomorrow night. I'm off to Thorpe Park during the daytime so should be suitably knackered by the evening - but don't count me out just yet!
