End of Year Members Meal / Social Events

Some very kind AVA members (John Bailey, Gill Pybus and Paul Frear) are proposing to organise an end-of-year social get together in the form of a meal where club members and guests can meet, make new friends and share stories of their archery prowess. The proposed date is 7th December.
In order to organise a venue and details they are looking to you for a rough idea of the numbers of people that would attend, typical food type (curry, Chinese, British, maybe Italian etc.) and any other ideas such as a venue or anything that could make the night a success. Example was the Aagrah last December, but there has been a proposal of the St Ives Golf Club. Let us know what you think.

Please send your reply to; events@aire-valley-archers.co.uk by the 28th September.

Reply with;
Members Name I would like to attend and would like to bring number of guests guests.(Number of guests maybe limited dependant on the number of club members interested.)
I prefer insert food type.
Please add any other suggestions including venue etc.

If you would like to help Gill, John and Paul with this or any other social event, we are actively looking for another two or three people to help, please email your name toevents@aire-valley-archers.co.uk .
