Well by now I had intended to have blogged about my endeavours in the classic Peris Horseshoe Fell race the Saturday before last but with time passing & the fantastic Autumnal colours now putting on their show (it’s a joy to be running through them at this time of year, if only I could sprint onto the scene in the way that they have this year) I feel (as they say) to have been overtaken by Events & Cafe Events at that, so:-
Thanks Tim for a thoroughly insightful & enjoyable insight last Friday into your year as a mountain guide, we were left thinking we need to do more as much as feeling admiration at the professionalism & self analysis which you put into your work & lifestyle in equal measure.
Looking forward, tickets for Susanne Schultz’ presentation about the Carneddau Ponies have been under constant demand. Out of the 100 tickets allocated we have just 5 left so if you are not coming into the Cafe in the next 24 hours & want to reserve tickets it’d be best to phone us on 01690 720429, sorry make that 4 now!
Doug Scott returns to us on 10th November, this too has been a sell out in the two previous years, there are still plenty of tickets available at the moment but with sales picking up again I’d urge you to reserve your tickets sooner rather than later.
Before both of these we have our ‘Fun Quiz Night’ for all dog lovers (you don’t need a dog to enter) hosted by the ever reliable man of Doctor Who & the Left, Mike Lees. No need to reserve tickets but you might want to reserve a table so as not to be disappointed. The night will include an Auction as well as a Raffle with all proceeds including entry fee going to the dog charity The Little Adoption Shop.
Finally an event that is not happening, Alan Mannouch is taking a long overdue sabbatical from hosting our Open MIC Nights so the one planned for the last Saturday in November will not take place (note the October one was off already due to our hosting Team 333’s AGM on that night). Note: Alan will be hosting our Open MIC on 29th December to help lead us towards the New Year.
To all the runners taking part in Matt Ward’s Petzl Night run on Saturday night good luck, with over 3 hours of running mostly in the dark & with a ‘troubled’ forecast on the cards we may well need a bit of luck on top of our self-determination!
