June 2006 Pub Run and Barbecue. 

a

This was the first run organised by Rita and Adrian.  It was very well attended with 18 cars and 37 people.  We all met at HQ otherwise known as the Gala Club.  Some stalwarts were even there 15 bminutes early.  They had obviously heard that there was going to be a Barbecue organised at the pub.  We started the runners off at 7:00pm, the others followed and the last one left at 7:30pm.  They didn't know that there were a few surprises in store for them.  The route took them through several pretty little villages such as Witcombe, Miserden, Sapperton, Frampton Mansell and Minchinhampton before climbing the Toadsmoor Valley to go through Eastcombe and finally arrive at our destination - The Stirrup Cup in Bisley.  During the route we had planned a few places where they should cross over certain cross roads from different directions hoping to cause confusion but not too much as wanted them to finish the course.   We then went to the pub ourselves and waited for the first arrival.  It was 25 minutes to nine before the first car appeared with two more in quick succession.  From then on it was a steady stream.  The relief was palpable.  They had managed to read our directions! 

cWe then settled down to a fine pint or glass on wine and headed up the stairs toward the garden/Barbecue area.  Andy had done us proud as there was a good choice of meal together with Jacket Potatoes and lashings of "help yourself salad".  Judging by the empty plates and all the good comments the evening was a success.  The weather was perfect, not too hot or too cold.

You never know, another run might end up here.  We could also organise a skittles evening. 

Thanks to Andy and Mary the genial hosts for helping to make it a success
