Title: MONDAY 20TH DECEMBER 2021
Post by: colinabrett on December 09, 2021, 01:10:26 pm
Currently we are planning a Wings of War/Glory participation game.

WINGS OF WAR (participation): any and all
LION RAMPANT: TomG, Tony
BGME: Michael, Simon
SOMETHING DIFFERENT: Ash, Pippa

There will, however, be space and tables available if anyone wants to play something different. Please register your interest and requirements in this thread and I'll update the above list.

UPDATE: Also, pizza! Andy Miller is ordering out so we have some food on the night. He will be taking orders on the night, so please don't turn up too late.

UPDATE 16 December 2021: I have posted the latest Covid notices from the George Alcock Centre in the Members Only forum. Please check them out. This link might take you straight there:

UPDATE: as the chairman and Mrs Santa have both tested negative for COVID this morning, I am delighted to confirm there will be fresh cookies - Mrs Santa insists those are only for those who have been nice this year, though :)

Martin,
The pizza is Dominoes with 50% off for collection, work out what you'd like from their website.

Hi I'd really like to attend, and I enjoyed my time with Wings of War last time we played so would like to join in on that. In terms of pizza, Im happy for whatever's available. Pizza is pizza.

What're the plans for payment? Are we buying our own but as a joint order or splitting cost or increased club fee to cover it all or...?
Happy to contribute :)

I'll take requests on the evening and go and collect, really don't mind if people have their own individual or want to club together for a few large ones. I'll happily accept a bank transfer (acc no. available on the evening) or good old fashioned cash.
Andy

I've got more than enough planes for everyone, but before I commit to attending I've got something I want to discuss first.

I'm very aware that the new covid regulations mean that mask wearing is now mandatory in the community centre. But I really struggle with wearing a mask for any period of time. I couldn't make it through last night's axe throwing without needing to take a couple of breaks outside, so there's no way I could wear one for the length of a club meeting. I've always been clear with the club that if mask wearing became mandatory that would mean I couldn't attend.

After speaking to some of the guys last night they encouraged me to accept that I've got a genuine medical exemption, even if whatever's wrong with my brain has never been diagnosed.* So I plan to attend on Monday, but I won't be wearing a mask during the game. I'm fully vaccinated, and I'll have had my booster by then, plus I intend to take a lateral flow test on Monday for peace of mind. But if anyone has any objections, please say so.

*Let's face it, the NHS is stretched enough right now without adding my issues to their workload.

Regrettably Papa John's pizzas are dire. I used to get fairly regular take-aways from them but the last 2 times they have gone downhill so I suspect they are making economies in their ingredients or something :(

I have no problems with you not wearing a mask Rob but with Omicron I am re-evaluating all my social activity and may pull out of club visits and events entirely until things have calmed down again, so if I am not there on the 20th you'll all know why.

Ash and I will be there for wings of glory! I assume there will be enough planes but shout if you want us to bring any, we have a modest amount.
Re covid and mask wearing. I am working on the principal we are all intelligent adults. Wear a mask if able and don't if not. If we are eating pizza we won't be wearing them much on 20th anyway. Current govt advice seems to be ventilation is key so personally I'll be happier with doors open even if its cold. And would hope people stay away if feeling unwell and take a test if in doubt. Who knew we'd get so used to sticking swabs up our noses!

I will not be there on Monday. Both my kids have tested positive for covid (they're ok, minor symptoms only) and while I am fully vaccinated I'm isolating anyway as I'd rather not take any chances of spreading it about.

Just to confirm: Monday is on subject to no changes in govt regs or guidance before then: we would request that people wear masks whenever possible, and if you can take a LFT beforehand, it would be appreciated - obviously if you fail the test or display symptoms, we'd ask you not to attend.

Also please remember to bring cash to pay Andy for pizza :D

We are still coming but have decided to play something other than wings of glory to better allow distancing. Please also inform Mrs Claus we have both been good this year 😊

ABBA made an appearance at the North end of the table! Lots of in fact, with Mikes 'B' damage-issuing-2-seater-thingy against some agile though 'A' damage-armed-snipes! Poor old Tom was beginning to think he was in a late 70's record shop!

There was quite a lot of Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! but everyone was a Super Trouper and I didn't mind.

Several pilots "took a chance on me", I had to send out an "S.O.S". I returned fire as that's "the name of the game". Watching the plane fall from the sky "I wonder", "does your mother know" you were "under attack"  and had met your "Waterloo", it had to be "one of us" and "the winner takes it all".
