Stuart,

       I think that Mark T, Mike Shellim and I will compete as the All Stars, although I haven't asked Mike and Mark about it.

       Cheers, John

        English Open, evening social & meal . Sat 19th.                              

On the Saturday evening after day 1's racing, for those wishing too there will be a social & meal at a local hostelry. These evenings have always been well attended & very enjoyable evenings.

Unfortunately the excellent venue that we have all enjoyed in previous yrs is now under new management, & has gone rather 'up-market'. I have a couple of alternative venues in mind that will suit our needs well. I'l confirm the chosen venue as soon as possible & then ask for the names of those who wish to come along and enjoy.

Stu,

Are we going with the George in Mere, rather fittingly, as the venue for the evening meal on the Saturday evening? I have a big table booked there if so, currently for 25!

Hope you'll all be hungry...
