Yes, I know, it is only October but time flies.
This year we will try something new: Giuseppes’s gourment in the Selsley Gliding Club ( we cycle past every time we do the Selsley ride) http://goo.gl/maps/8RyZU
The theme is not yet decided, so make your voice heard and either leave a comment or go to the next club meeting.
The theme is now decided: Pilots and aircrew
The rest is decided:
We will meet at 19:00 and eat at 19:30 on 21st of December 2013.
It is a bring your own place. The club will provide all the soft drinks, but people who would like to have a glass of wine or beer should bring their own.
As usual we will have a raffle, so search through your garage and wrap the stuff you have bought by mistake nicely so we can put it into the raffle.
Now the important stuff: food. It is a turkey free choice, since Christmas day will be only a few days away.
Goat cheese with sun dried tomatoes
Home made fish cakes
Fresh king prawns in garlic and chillies
Home made broccoli and dolcelatte soup
Duck orange pate
Panciotti al pomodoro ( fresh pasta filled with aubergines and cheese cooked in fresh tomato and basil sauce) [vegetarian]
Cod in guazetto ( fillet of cod cooked in fish stock, wine, fresh herbs and a touch of tomato)
Chicken in fresh cream with mushrooms
Risotto with courgettes, prawns and saffron
Pannacotte with toffee sauce
We will have the whole place for ourselves. It seats 50 people, so book early to make sure that you will be part of our splendid party.
The three course meal is £26 but the club will contribute £5 to each meal, that means you will pay £21. (Dan, the children and I went for a test meal. The food is brilliant)
Coffee is not included by the way since they have not the facilities to make huge amounts of coffee.
We agreed that teenage children of members can come along if they wish to.
Please put your names down as soon as possible. We need a £10 deposit per person as well.
Please put you name down, choose your food and send you deposit to the Bigfoot account by Saturday the 30-11-2013.
You cannot turn up on the night without booking. We will not take any bookings after the 30-11-2013.
