minutes of a meeting

Post by Michael Brigg » Thu Apr 15, 2010 11:22 pm

We had a nice branch meeting of the CVRDA in The Harrow pub and AG told all about what it is like to "fly up a badgers a**e" (FYI thats BA terminology for flying through a volcanic ash cloud)

Walnut shells were discussed as well as the RYA, cleaning sails, the price of second hand boats, and effective ways of soliciting conjugal support for boat bimbling. All the usual stuff. .

It occured to me that had AG's flight been cancelled he might have flown here on one of his Dragons. The comparison could have been made between Volcanic ash and Walnut Shells :lol:

I suspect ash is more aggressive as a blasting aggregate!!

I don't know which beer we had but we drank the barrel dry (yes it was already nearly empty)

We thought this section of the forum is underused. It might be a means of establishing a CVRDA star system for pubs that are suitable watering holes for convivial discussion

The Harrow is 5*. There is plenty of water at the mark, and navigational skill is required to get there,

Michael, it was very good to meet yourself and AG. We must convene another meeting soon to inspect Tiptoes and then revert to the Harrow again or another establishment for more discussions and beer.

It was a convivial meeting, amongst the "Cabbages and Kings" we discussed we even said I'dhold a BBQ in Liss for anyone from the CVRDA, I'll lay in a barrell of Otter, some glasses and make some elderflower cordial and Roast a pig or lamb Both if enough are coming! I have experience of this see below this one was New Years Day in Denmark about 6 years ago.
Suggested time is "Wilsons Whit" 1-3rd May children will be welcome but we'll need another spit! Anychance of a trip south Garry? Davids Henshall & Chivers are a must be there!
