Emigration party! - 9th Feb
« on: January 07, 2013, 09:23:18 PM »
Hi Everyone,

Elly and I are moving to Australia (Sydney) in February!! Elly got a job there with her work, so clearly this requires an epic party!

The party will be at the Waterside centre in Guildford, from 6 pm - midnight on Saturday 9th February.
It'll be fancy dress. The theme is Australia and the Southern Hemisphere. Think animals, famous people, cultures, landmarks etc.

There is a bar and if we get enough interest they'll get a keg too from the local brewery (let me know). For food we'd like everyone to bring a dish to share. Sweet or savoury, whichever you prefer.

There will be prizes for the best outfit and best dish, so get planning!

Anyone that knows us is welcome. Please let us know if you can come so I can get a rough idea of numbers. Other halves and offspring welcome obviously.

Hope to see you there!

Elly and Matt

Was their party in the summer?!

Maybe i'll change the venue. I'm sure climbers are a lot more civilised than cavers....

Bump!

Just a reminder about our emigration party this Saturday.

The important details are:

1. There is a bar.

2. This Saturday, 6pm, Waterside centre, Guildford, GU1 1LW. Parking is a bit limited so try and share if you can.

3. Australia and Southern hemisphere themed fancy dress. There are changing rooms there if you aren't brave enough to travel in your outfit. Prize for the best one.

4. "Bring a plate" - In Australia this means bring a plate of food to share, not just an actual plate! We are looking to have more sweet, so if some people can think savoury that would be ideal.

5. If you have a picture of yourself, with us or not, please bring it along for our guest book.

Any questions let me know!
