We have an exciting day and night planned on Sat 16 April 2016 for Wapping members past and present.
11am on the relaid John Orwell Old ladies vs current ladies - let's get some folks down to have a shout from the stands too
1pm Cape - AGM - agenda to be confirmed shortly - please send any requests in to Sarah or via your skippers into the upcoming committee meeting.
2:30 John Orwell Old men vs current men
7pm convene at the London Irish Centre[See FN1 below], 50-52 Camden Square, London, NW1 9XB for your welcome bubbles. [Insert joke about loadsa champ and an Irish venue] We have the run of the Hub Bar and the McNamara Suite all night. The McNamara Suite will be where we hold the End of Season Dinner and Awards and after party. Have a look here: https://www.slicedevents.com/spaces/
Your end of season dinner tickets are £50, which includes welcome bubbles, a three course meal, and 1/2 a bottle of wine per head. It's black tie dress code. The bar will be open till 2am and the venue will expect us all out by 2:30.
The venue set up should allow us more flexibility than previous EoSD venues, which hopefully allows for an EoSD video & pics of award recipients rather than just me rattling on at you on a crackly mike.
We are also in discussions with the venue regarding putting in Wapping Hoppy (i.e. the keg beer they have at Turks Head / had at the Euros main bar) as a cheaper pint.
Teams have already given us an idea of numbers. Please would you now pay your captains (or nominated individual) and also communicate any dietary requirements to them, in particular allergies such as: nuts, gluten, dairy, cereals, peanuts, soya, lupin, fish, sesame seeds, mustard, crustaceans, molluscs and eggs.
Captains or nominated individual, please make contact with our social sec Rachel & get the names of attendees and dietary requirements to her. Please arrange paying in monies with treasurer Joel. Really, we'd like the cash in as soon as poss but if you have to wait until this month's payday that's okay.
Non-playing members, such as umpires, and former members who would like to come to the dinner, please also email Rachel on the address above. In an ideal world, we'd love a load of former members to come down, have a knock on the new JO and then join us for smash in the evening. Plenty of space in the venue so just let us know. With a significant number of league champions and a promotion to the National League it promises to be a strong evening bordering on the compelling. Excited!
Volunteers to captain our teams on the day, please let me know.
Questions? Ask Rachel...I'm going for a lie down.
FN1: The right of admission to the Wapping HC End of Season Dinner at the London Irish Centre is strictly reserved to London Irish Centre and Wapping HC. Please be aware there will be door staff so please arrive fit to enter...
