December 2011 Events

Great to see such a good turn out at our last meeting on 24 November 2011, apologies again for the small 'heated' room but I'm sure you will agree Nick Peat is quite a character with an incredible amount of big pike to his name, a most worthwhile guest speaker.

Just a quick update on our next two events:

Our next fish-in takes place on Sunday 11 December and will be held at the Port Meadow stretch of the river Thames (near Wolvercote). Cost will be £5 per person as the stretch has been booked via the ODAA. Meeting point and timings will be provided once you book your place. Please book through me by Friday 9 December.

Curry Night
This will take place on Saturday 17 December in Oxford. Venue is Chutneys Indian, 36 St Michael's Street, Oxford, OX1 2EB. I have made our booking for 7.30pm. For those that wish to have a drink first we will meet in the Weatherspoons 'Four Candles' pub in George street, just down from and opposite Oxford New Theatre from 6.30pm. Wife's and partners are also invited. Please let me know if you are attending by Monday 12 December so I can confirm numbers with the restaurant.
