Winter Championships & Laying Down Supper Preview

Andy Cox/John Crooks - 15th October 2008

Yes, it's that time of year again where we dust off the DJ, purchase new frocks and brake our ankles in ridiculous high heels. It's the Lark Winter Champs!

For those of you that have not been it is an experience not to be missed.

The itinerary for the weekend is...

Racing: We are expecting a big turn out again, with a guarantee of hot competition on the water. There will be 5 races, with first start at 11am and races 2 & 3 held back-to-back after lunch. The briefing will be at 10am. To enter online now, by card or cheque please follow the link below.

Post Racing/Pre Dinner: After a swift half in club whilst analysing the days racing, everyone heads off to their accommodation to spruce themselves up for the laying down supper. The majority make use of the accommodation deal that we have once again at Sedgebrook Hall, there is jaccuzi, sauna & pool to relax those aching legs before changing.

We once again have a cracking offer for Bed & Breakfast at Sedgebrook Hall.

65 for Double/Twin Room
55 for Single Room

There is a reduced rate of 50, if staying for 2 nights.

Please call 01604 821666 to book your rooms, and remember to say that you're with The Larks for the Winter Championships to get the deal.

Dinner/Dance: Kick off for the Black Tie dinner at the club is 7PM where there will be fine food, fine wine, fine tunes, and fine company. There will be a 3-course meal followed by a wrap up of the season and the annual prize giving, not to mention the highly anticipated annual Duckhams award.

Back by popular demand, "High Five" are returning to the Winters to get everyone up on the dance floor to see in the early hours.

Q&A: One of the questions every year is, "is it strict black tie?", and the answer is... get as close to black tie as you can, what we don't want is people not coming because they don't have a DJ.

See you all there!
