After a great start to the season with the Pairs Head and the Vesta pub crawl, we have the next two major events coming up in the calendar:
7th November – 4s Head – Race Start @ 12.45 pm
8th November – VET 4s Head – Race Start @ 12.00 pm
4s Head (7th November)
Food will be served from 11.00 am through to 5.00 pm. A selection of sandwiches and cakes will be on offer at the food table in the front room.
The bar will be open all day! The fancy dress theme will be anything beginning with the letters V, R or C. Bonus points if you can pull off a costume that covers all three bases. Fancy dress, whilst not mandatory, is always strongly encouraged at Vesta parties 🙂
Importantly, volunteers are needed for the below times on Saturday. If you are able to help please get in touch with Dick, Sven or Thea. Helping out on the food table/in the bar is a great laugh! You can get to know more Vesta members and also take pleasure in refusing to make fancy drinks for non-Vesta members. (Overheard on a bar shift: “You want a white wine spritzer? No. This is the Vesta Bar. We don’t do spritzers. I’ll sell you a white wine and I’ll sell you some soda water and you can mix it yourself.” )
Food – 11.00am – 5.00pm
Bar – 12.00pm – 1.00am
VETs 4s Head (8th November)
VETs 4s Head will take place the next day at 12.00 pm and food will again be provided from 11.00 am till 5.00 pm with the bar open all afternoon.
Again, volunteers are needed to make this work so dust off your hangovers and get ready for some hair of the dog. If any of you can help on the below times it would be much appreciated.
Food – 11.00am – 5.00pm
Bar – 12.00pm – 5.00pm
Food for 4s Head and Vets 4s Head
In a time honoured tradition all active members are called upon to provide sandwiches and cakes to donate to the food table. Some people take this as a challenge to come up with the most creative sandwich fillings or impressive cakes; others pop into the Sainsbury’s up the road and grab a tub or two of flapjacks. Both approaches are very much welcome!
Please can all squads make sandwiches and cakes to donate to the food table. To provide an even split of sweet and savoury food we are asking the Novice Men and Senior Women provide sandwiches, bagels, etc. and the Novice Women and Senior Men to bake cakes and biscuits. However, if your signature dish happens to not be a cake, feel free to make something else and vice versa. Again, all profits will go towards the boat buying fund.
