Great to see everyone at today's social ... I suspect that some of you are still there as I type this :)

Unfortunately, a couple of members had already left by the time I took this - but thanks to everyone for coming along!

From left to right - Essexbuzzard +1 (sorry, terrible with names!), Philzoid, Paul Harfield, Wurzel, Millerd, Bugboy, Susie.

It's Esther. Call her Kentish buzzard! We look a right bunch of toe rags- apart from Susie of course :lol: Great to see everyone today :D .

I very much enjoyed meeting everyone (Millerd, Philzoid, Bugboy, Iona, Pete, Essexbuzzard and Esther, Wurzel and Paul) at the Winter social yesterday. It's a shame I had to leave early, especially as I missed Susie!

Had a thoroughly great time, the conversation and the beer flowed, (the latter literally in my case) :oops: ... wonder who'll get the dubious honour of spilling their drink next year :? :lol:

Hopefully some of our best laid plans for next year will come to fruition. If they do or if they don't there's always next year's social to talk all about it :D

Yes, a very enjoyable afternoon as always :D . I think I managed to speak to everybody, but unfortunately I did not manage to avoid the group photo this year :roll: .
As others have said, thanks to Bugboy for taking on the organisation this year and to Pete for UKB.
A special thanks to Philzoid for not having his beer aimed at me when it went rogue :lol:. I hope Wurzel managed to dry out before he got home.

I'm still annoyed with myself for having wasted a perfectly good pint :roll: Still, at least it gave Wurzel the perfect excuse when he got home smelling of beer :wink:

I must have inadvertently started a tradition last year :oops:, at least you waited until the end though, I threw my first drink all over the table last year!

Thank you for welcoming me into your little circle. I had no idea who to look for so felt like a spy trying to look inconspicuous whilst studying folk!
