Brian & Teresa's evening run Tuesday 24th August 2010
From a Hungry Horse to a Winning Horse*

 

Fourteen cars set off from the lay-by on the A436 opposite the Hungry Horse Pub at Seven Springs, and 36 miles later thirteen cars finished at the Daneway Inn near Sapperton. Mike Pollack unfortunately had to retire with a dodgy alternator.

 

A minor mistake on the Tulip diagram at Junction 4 (a right instead of a left) caused some to go West rather than East. This was soon rectified and all proceeded to loop round narrow lanes and bounce over Gloucestershire Highways’ finest potholes. Several times they crisscrossed the route of the new gas pipeline (36 inches in diameter running for 28 miles from Broadway to Sapperton) which is currently scarring the landscape and muddying the roads.

 

 

 

On arrival at the Daneway Inn some members immediately began to play the ages old traditional pub game of ‘MOVING-A-TABLE-ON-WHICH-STANDS-A-FULL-GLASS-WINE-WITHOUT-SPILLING-ANY’. Adrian was the first to try... After the broken glass and spilled wine had been cleared up the food arrived.

 

 

 

Those dining were served big plates of good honest home cooked food including large portions of ‘calorie-free’ chips.

 

Tuesday night is music night so we were all treated to Irish tunes by the musicians who had turned up for the evening. This was an excellent taster for those soon to embark on the Ireland Tour organised by our own little leprechaun and chairman.

Thanks to Richard & Elizabeth for their hospitality and great food. (www.thedanewayinn.co.uk)

* Why Winning Horse? A previous landlord owned a winning racehorse called Daneway and had him depicted on the pub-sign in his honour.
