I might be coming along, albeit probably partnerless in which case I'm open to offers. . .

I'm fairly sure I ordered PIZZA - the problem is that I'd had several pints of Guinness at that point!
I'll check and let you know if different

Matt - it will be great to see you.

Cheers
Bill

Certainly been a while since I've posted on Britfoos, tis good to be back.

Anyone around this Friday? If there's a fair crowd, I'll see if I can get some mates together to come and play.

Hope you all haven't forgotten me!

Luke,

Great to hear from you!
We expect the usual crowd on Friday so please come along with your people.

Last Friday was really good - Blake made up for his absence without leave by
bringing Mark, Jacob, Barbara, and Nick. All fine players.
Jacob & Paul beat Roger & Dom to win the first competition of the evening.
Barbara caried Paddy to their victory in the second.

Thanks for coming guys - you're welcome back anytime.

Cheers,
Bill

Sorry we didn't show up on Friday; I couldn't rally the troops in time. Will hope to make it some time soon.

Another wonderful night at the Royal Oay - 18 players including even more debutants and
even our occasional visitor from the Southern Hemishere - report to follow.

Thanks to Chris Haddon we'll soon be able to offer Fireball as well a Garlando at the Pub.

Friday 2nd of December will be our CHRISTMAS CRACKER event.
Seasonal Food and PYP and Prizes.

All who have played at the Royal Oak this year are welcome.
But please try to let us know in advance so we can plan to make the night great for you.

If you haven't played at the Pub yet there's still time to qualify!

PS Luke - maybe you can target ths date if not sooner?

Cheers
Bill

Chris, what's the latest on balls for the new table? Also I don't suppose there's any way we could get it in for Friday?...only 4 more fridays to practice for Manchester including this one. I could get down a little earlier than normal (Maybe by 18:30) if you need help to move it.....PS I'd be happy to order the balls if it helps but there could be a long wait if the postman fails to get it through my letterbox.

Hi Bren, I have got a new set of balls, I am hoping to bring the table this Friday between 7 and 7.30 if you and anyone else can make it to help lift it it would help.
