Christmas Meal 2007

Posted by NickB on December 14, 2007

Many thanks to Bear for organising last nights Christmas meal at the Britannia, Venturers turned out in force dragging along, wives, girlfriends, daughters and in one case even a mother!  The Brit served up an excellent ‘value for money’ meal to be accompanied by the wine Bear had managed to secure at very reasonable cost.

New chairman, James Dell showed that he has more nous than many give him credit for as when the jeers started for him to make an impromptu speech he promptly produced a type written prepared one from deep in his pockets (yes his arms were long enough).  Good try Dickie, but no banana!!

Photos to follow …. ….. ….. when they are sent to me!

Cornwall, Counthouse Oct 18 – 21 2007

Posted by NickB on November 8, 2007

Thanks to Mark for organising a great weekend, no rain, good company, excellent paddling, rugby world cup final, walking/birdwatching and some even went climbing! No surf though.  Shame about the rugby result and the cold showers, it seems that some people aren’t as tough as they would like to think with the Deliverance style squealing coming from the showers !!  The best home cooked meal of the weekend must go to the RobBear Beef Wellington, even if it took two evenings to prepare.  I’m sure Dave and Mike appreciated it in preparation for the mountain of dirty crocks!!

Friday and Sennen was lovely and sunny and protected from the brisk south/south easterly winds so we took the long boats out from Sennen.  Once we were a few hundred metres out the winds at our backs drove us rapidly to Cape Cornwall.
