IBG Xmas Lunch - updated details

Hi All,

I have just spoken to the Marquess Tavern and they have reconfirmed the booking for Sunday at 2pm ( please note 2pm, they couldn't do the 2:30 slot ).

Menu details still to follow - apparently it changes daily. I have been assured though that that there will be xmas pudding and turkey roast for those that would like to have it.

No advance payment is required this time for the meal.

On the day I will be strict though and insist that any drinks are bought separately to the food bill to save any confusion.

As well as your dazzlling smile, please bring two things - a xmas ( note XMAS!! ) jumper ( there are lots of cheap ones in Primark at the moment ) and a present for our Secret Santa gifts.

For the present please bring a book wrapped nicely in xmas paper. It should be your guilty pleasure book. The book that never fails to cheer/ comfort/ warm your heart. What a nice thing to share with your fellow members :-D.

I'm sooooo excited!! :-)

Hannah :-)

p.s. When I do send out the menu details I will be asking you all to let me know in advance what you would like to eat ( pudding and main course ) so we can receive our food more efficiently on the day

    Well done Hannah - as ever your organisation is much appreciated. Look forward to seeing you all there - if not before. Many obstacles have come between me and the IBG over the last few months which has been a shame so it'll be good to catch up with everyone.

    We have the Marquess!! The Old Dairy did not have any xmas food options on the menu unfortunately. The Marquess c
    hange their menu weekly so I will have to wait until closer to the time before I can let you all know what choices are :-) Veggies, I have been assured that there is a nut roast :-))!!!

    Hi All, I'm already excited about our xmas lunch and it's still more than a month away :-)

    I just wanted to let you all know that it will be a structured 2 / 3 course meal which may require advance payment. As it is a celebration of the festive season as well as the year we have just had it will on this occassion only be open only to existing members and not for guests.

    We will be engaging in "games" as well as a book swap. Last year we waited a long time for our food and the book swap part of the day took ages. Please therefore do not invite your guests to join us during the course of the day as they may arrive before the meetup is concluded.

    Look forward to seeing you then,

    Hannah :-)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
