EACC PUB NIGHT

 

Saturday 9 March 2019

at 7.00pm 

Venue: Thurne Lion

 

The pub night for 2019 on Saturday 9 March will be held in The Lion at Thurne, giving those of you who attend the regular Friday Night Table an excuse to spend the whole weekend in the pub!  We will be in the restaurant area and if there are more than 40 of us we will have the whole space to ourselves - there's a further incentive as an EACC pub takeover is such fun!  It is of course an informal event and the opportunity to mingle and chat and share tales of woe about planking and hopes for success in the season ahead.  We will be ordering from the menu below  - and if you are planning to eat I will need pre-orders from you by tea time on Sunday 3 March.

If you are just coming for a beer that's fine and it would be lovely to see you, but it would be great if you let me know (no commitment!)  so I can give the pub an idea of overall numbers - and we can hopefully secure the whole space.

Acle Bridge Inn

 

The annual EACC pre-season pub night will take place again at the usual location of Acle Bridge Inn.  It's a good location which is convenient for many of the members and not too bad for those of you who have travelled from other parts of the country to do some winter maintenance in a boat shed somewhere on the northern rivers.  You can even moor there if you happen to be in the water, although that's not compulsory! There's a convivial atmosphere, a good selection of drinks at reasonable prices and a pub grub menu. 
 
EACC has booked the separate room at the rear once again, and we will meet at 7pm and order food at 7.30 or thereabouts.  No food pre-orders  are needed (which is great, because you never know what you're going to fancy a week in advance do you?) but I do need to know numbers for setting up as last year we planned for 37 and had to find spaces for 44 ( which was challenging!) so if you are coming could you let Cally know by email by 8 March.
 
Come along and catch up with old friends, make new ones and hear how the Sun Glory Fleet is coming along.  We look forward to seeing lots of you there.
