Book your place at the DVC 2016

5 months ago By Will Gilgrass

The night of the year is coming!

Gentlemen the time has come for you to book your place at the Old Street Christmas Party aka the Denise Vinyl Cup.

History of this event will be given by Mr Hay via a PowerPoint presentation – but ultimately it’s an opportunity for us to play an inter-club game during the day, and then go on to The Lamb Tavern in Leadenhall Market for Christmas Dinner and our Annual Awards for all three sides.

Please update Pitchero for your match availability – and then select your meal from the options below.

The meal is £40 per head – with significant others more than welcome.

Please let Lynn know your selections and make your payment to the club account no later than November 14th to guarantee your place.

Any questions give Lynn or Will a shout.
