Fantastic First Friday last night - thanks to all who came.

Winners of the First Prize (£10)
Aleeeeeeena :evil: & Brendan :mrgreen:

Runners-Up (£6)
Paddy :agrue: Chris

3rd Place (Beaten only by Goal Difference)
Potts & Matt

Participated with Honour
Laura & Keele Steve
Sarah & Kelly
Roger & Steve
Paul & Floater
Martyn & Dom
Deg & Bill

Some high quality Foos and Alena & Brendan were worthy winners.
They savaged Deg and me - 5-0 - we were lucky to get nil! - and
only lost their first game, beating strong opponents on their way.

A personal thankyou from me to Potts for the midfield lesson!

The other big winner was THE FOOD - Pork & Stuffing batches,
apple sauce, roast potatoes, crackling, and gravy - all cooked and
served to perfection.

A massive THANKYOU :D :D to the Keelites for such a big turnout.

PS Laura, I'm holding our coat as hostage until you personally pick it up.

Best Regards
Bill

Hi Blake

Just turn up,

If you are on your own I will team up with you.

It's a fun night with people of all skill levels.

Hope you can make it next Friday

Blake,

If there's an odd number than one player 'floats' - has a different partner each game.
Let us know if you need a lift from Hinckley.

PS Don't eat anything from now - there will be plenty of food!

Cheers
Bill

One day...one day, just once, he'll spell it right, but not yet........we've only been going there about 4 and a half years..... :roll:



its

Alina, with an 'i', he even gets Greg's name right and Greg has* only been about 5 times :roll:

*Wasn't sure of apostophe usage here and din't want to fall foul of Dave Z so have gone for the long form!!
Pretty sure 'Greg ha's would shorten to 'Greg's' though.....I'll wait for a DZ ruling

Spelling now corrected - this deliberate "error" prompted proof that at least one person reads this!

Ha!!!

Was a pleasure to pop my head in on Friday evening. Easily worth the drive.

I miss you all, and wish there was something like this up North.

To everyone who wasn't there for the rather quiet session, I miss you all too!

El Capitan will return in... The Autumn
