Tyne & Wear Branch? Summer Day Out Take Two

Postby Joculator » Sat Jun 05, 2010 10:51 pm

We have a choice of two new dates for our Summer Day Out.
The event is planned for the same location and times.

Venue: The Swan & Three Cygnets, Elvet Bridge, Durham
The Time: Between 11:30-12:30

The plan is to meet up for a drink and lunch then occupy some stretch of riverbank for a quiz.
This will then be followed by a Treasure Hunt around the peninsular and city centre.
Back to the pub for a final drink/snack and a bit of a general social.

Hopefully this will give other branch members a better chance of taking up the invitation and coming along to join us.

So the dates planned are either the 3rd or 10th of July. Do your thing with the list below.

Sat 3 July




Sat 10 July
Jonty, + the wife and Larissa
Joculator & Joculatrix




Parking and venue maps will be published in a short while.

Well by general weight of numbers it looks like it's going to be Saturday the 10th.

If anyone else wishes to join us just add your name at the end. :sunny:

Unfortunately the Summer day out for the Tyne and wear Branch has had to be rescheduled, as the 10th July is the date of the Durham Miners Gala

As a result none of us would be able to get into any pub , never mind the Swan and 3, so with regret Stan and myself have chosen 2 other Saturdays in July

Saturday 24th July

or

Saturday 31st July

Please state your preference below in the usual manner, which ever Saturday gets the most votes, that will be the one we aim for (hopefully)

The Venue will remain the same:

Venue: The Swan & Three Cygnets, Elvet Bridge, Durham
The Time: Between 11:30-12:30

The plan is to meet up for a drink and lunch then occupy some stretch of riverbank for a quiz.
This will then be followed by a Treasure Hunt around the peninsular and city centre.
Back to the pub for a final drink/snack and a bit of a general social.

Many apologies for this, but the local council only just started advertising the event this week. (It is normally the first Saturday in July) :evil:

However, I'll put my preferences now


Venue: The Swan & Three Cygnets, Elvet Bridge, Durham
The Time: Between 11:30-12:30

The plan is to meet up for a drink and lunch then occupy some stretch of riverbank for a quiz.
This will then be followed by a Treasure Hunt around the peninsular and city centre.
