Venue: The Red Lion pub at Hognaston, starting at 11am

***********************************************
When bad weather strikes it's useful to be able to communicate quickly, so we now have a WhatsApp group. We can also set up a Facebook Messenger group if some members prefer this, or send a group text to members who prefer this option.
Be aware that with each of these options your fellow group members will be able to see some personal details - your phone number (WhatsApp, text), your Facebook name (Messenger).
If you would like to join the WhatApp group or receive a group text l will need your mobile number. Let me know if you prefer the Facebook Messenger option.
***********************************************

At the outset, we expected to play from April to September inclusive, but there is some demand to play beyond this so we will give it a go.

WEDNESDAY: fortnightly
September: 11th and 25th
October: 9th and 23rd
November: 6th and 20th
December: 4th and 18th

TUESDAY: fortnightly on alternate weeks to the Wednesday group
September: 3rd and 17th
September: 11th and 25th
October: 1st, 15th and 29th
November: 12th and 26th
December: 10th (none on 24th!)

There is no need to book in, just turn up on either or both days. If it's heaving down with rain we give it a miss.

We're a very social group, and have a lot of fun. No previous experience is necessary; all are welcome. We have members have been playing for years, some more seriously than others, and others have only just begun.

Feel free to bring any equipment you own, the pub also generously allows us to use theirs. The 'terrain' (the playing area) is outdoors & the surface is grit. A cloth to wipe boules &/or hands is recommended.

The pub does not charge a hire fee, & is open from midday. We typically retire indoors at around 1pm for a drink and / or something to eat. Our experience of the food is good.

N.B. the Walking group walks fortnightly on the opposite Wednesday to Petanque.
