Club Night

The November WFTR club night will be at The Foresters Arms, 173 London Road, Bagshot, GU19 5DH, on 07 November from 7:30 p.m. James and Trisha Duckworth will kindly be giving as a talk about their recent TR tour to Spain during the course of the evening. Barry Green has something he would like to say as well.

Event Report

Twenty of us had a superb Autumn leaves run organised by Barry and Jenny. We met for brunch at the Lasham Gliding Club cafe and had a group photo in their large car park. Barry then set us off on a 50’ish mile run along a really pleasant B road route around Hampshire and finishing The Fox at North Waltham for lunch. The weather was sunny and warm so hoods were folded away to make a superb day. Barry also timed it so we could get back to see the rugby union World Cup games that evening on the TV!

Twenty five of us took part in the end of season cruise on a canal boat along the Basingstoke canal from Odiham to King Johns Castle. Passengers were allowed to disembark and walk around the castle mid cruise. This run was organised by James and Trisha who also laid on a lovely afternoon tea to munch on as we sailed the route. Again the weather was kind to us and we all had a lovely afternoon out.

Come to our Christmas lunch and AGM which will be yet another opportunity for a get together.
