Hello Paddlers

 

CHIPPY AND BEER NIGHT   |   QUEEN’S JUBILEE GARDEN PARTY   |   LAST CALL FOR MACAU RACE   |

 

1) CHIPPY AND BEER NIGHT

Join us for our popular “Last Friday of the Month” social event:

Where:….. Supper at Smiths Fish and Chips at Boat Quay followed by beers at the nearby RedDot Brewhouse
When:….. Friday 25th May 2012 at 6.00pm onwards (join along when you can)
Price:….. Pay-as-you-go

Open to all paddlers, friends and family of the team plus supporters and members of other teams. Very informal – just turn up and buy whatever you want. Everyone welcome!

Team members should wear their drinking shirt. Bring along your British Dragons team membership card to receive your free mushy peas (or gravy) at Smiths and your team discount at RedDot.

We hold these social nights every last Friday in the month so please mark the dates on your calendar so that you won’t miss any chances to join in whilst also supporting our terrific sponsors.

 

2) QUEEN’S JUBILEE GARDEN PARTY

 


What:….. Queen’s Jubilee Garden Party

Where:….. Mr. Andrew Langton’s Estate
When:….. Sunday 3rd June 2012 at 1.00pm onwards
Tickets:….. $50 (which includes drinks and food)

Dress code: ….. It’s a garden party so dress apprpropriately – dragonboat kit not required*

(* Please note that in keeping with the protocol of the hierarchical formalities of this event only currently serving female committee members may wear tiaras – though these are of course entirely optional or may be deposited at the cloakroom tent upon arrival).

The event will provide a fabulous chance for the Queen’s loyal subjects (and the rest of us) to celebrate her 60 years on the throne in style.  Sadly she will not be able to grace our celebrations with her presence as she will be taking her own boat out on the Thames later on that same day.  However we will be holding this fabulous British garden party in her honour with a marquee, hopefully a spit roast (depending on numbers) and Pimms, etc.

Tickets for the garden party are strictly limited and registration closes at midnight on Friday 25th May 2012.  Please register at:
