July 7th 2007 Poker Run

Right, here we go...

July 7th (pretty much exactly one month away) we can confirm the Drivers Wharf Poker Run will be running (unless the weather is dreadful of course)

Assuming we don't have an ugly rough sea, and/or horizontal rain, we will be running a longer morning section, Starting at Dock Head, probably down to the Needles, and round to Freshwater Bay, then back up to Cowes North basin, with lunch at the Fountain Hotel.

A shorter dash back to Drivers in the afternoon, probably via a stop at Ryde, or one of the forts.

A fabulous evening in the usual format at Drivers, Hog roast, beer, music, videos etc, plus the all important 'card game'.

As last year, entries are limited to 30 boats (plus the official boats), so don't procrastinate!

Entry is £75 for boat & driver, plus £25 per extra adult crew, and £10 per extra child crew (No Chaos, you don't get classed as a child, at least not in this case)

We have reserved slots at North Basin Cowes, so we can have a nice, leisurely, stressless mooring up session, but all crews are responsible for their own short stay fees (about 6 quid), so please visit the marina office before we go to the Fountain for lunch and pay them directly.

Extra hands of cards available if required for the evening card game.

Full instructions and details to follow shortly.

Contact Gill at Drivers Wharf on 02380 233302 for entries.
A £50 deposit is required to confirm booking, no deposit, no guarantee of entry! So please, no complaints if you miss out.

JF

There is talk of a 'theme' to add a bit of fun, yes, and Bond is an obvious subject.

Would be better for you I suspect, if it were a Johnny Engish theme.

Read the ferkin post you nobwinkle!

Phone Gill, enter the PR, and send your 'kite' which will confirm your entry (assuming it don't bounce! but as you probably bank with 'Coutts', it'll be fine I'm sure)

I have read it you sausage jockey & there is no mention of entry forms, hence why i asked.

if you ask nicely, I'll open my mouth a bit wider for you, it'll be much easier for you to jump down.

We try to encourage the girls to poker run 'topless', so Bikini bottoms and a bow tie should do nicely.

Bearing in mind the age of who you said that to, I reckon you need to rethink.

There's already 20 official entries, with the limit being 30, if you're serious about doing this run, you need to get your entry form/deposit in ASAP.
