BBC Golf event at Gujan Mestras 9th April

Golf: Gujan Mestras- Tuesday 9th April

URGENT ! URGENT !  Calling all golfers.

The next BBC golf event is planned for Tuesday 9th April at Gujan Mestras, near Arcachon. We need a group of 10 players to secure reduced rates. In view of the success of our recent trip to Lacanau, we plan to repeat the formula of 9 holes from 9h30 followed by a group lunch at 12 noon.  Keen players may prefer 18 holes in the afternoon. Remember that non-players or friends of members are invited to walk the course or hire a « buggie ». Please note the terrain is basically flat.

To book for golf or just lunch, please contact or tel: 05-57-17-22-65 ASAP

All Saints Spring Party

All Saints Spring Party: Moustey – Saturday 27th April

‘Why celebrate only St George?’ has been the question posed by some members. So this year it will be a celebration of our other patron saints, St Andrew, St David and though we will already have celebrated, St Patrick in the time honoured way, we will let him join in too!!

The celebration starts at midday with an aperitif followed by a 3 course lunch which will include entree, fish and chips and choice of dessert. Wine is not included so please bring your own.

Marilyn will guide any  ‘volunteers’ through some country dancing if your consumption of fish and chips allow it !

Remember Burns Night? there were over 50 stumbling along to Marilyn’s excellent instruction!  If you’re feeling less than energetic you can sit on the side line, listen to the music, tap your toes and prepare to be amused by the efforts of others or have snooze!
