Post match curry

Any more takers for meeting up at Joi (Indian restaurant in Kingsway) for the all you can eat buffet after Sunday's xc? Fill your boots for £6.95 per person, drinks and poppadums extra (that goes for the goldfish as well, Bondy tongue). Current Harwich Runners record is shared between Colin K and Jason with 4 platefuls each!

So far, have got 10 definites and 3 possibles-any more than this and I think we're probably going to have make an official booking to make sure we all get in. Let me know if you're up for it and I'll book us in for around 1.45-2pm (to allow for marshalls and course dismantlers to finish and the runners to have a quick slap round with a flannel lol).

Hopefully see a few more of you there-one last social before xmas smile

Re: Post match curry

Sorry Becky better knock Paula and I off your possibles. I will need to get home and type out the full results to send off to the other clubs. I need to get them out by about 6 pm to keep up with Halstead. Hoping to have done them by 5 for a PB, it is the only kind of PB I can aim for these days.

Hope you all enjoy yourselves.

Re: Post match curry

Peter, if I'm not running then I'll bring my laptop down to the race & get the results online before most people leave.
(if I make it to essex)

Re: Post match curry

Thanks for the offer Graeme but I think I would rather be at home in the warm than in a cold barn. It takes ages, you have to type out all the runners names, clubs and finish positions, as well as team positions etc. If more than one club claims the same finish position, which happens more than once each year, you then have to go through the disks to see which club handed in that disk and so on and so on, can't wait. I have booked Monday off work in case I need extra time, it can turn into quite a job.
All the clubs take a few hours to get them out and some don't get them out till Monday.

Re: Post match curry

Please put me down for the meal on Sunday (if you haven't done already)
That's if they let us back after last time.

Re: Post match curry

I already had you down as a possible Paul, so it looks like 11 definites now smile

Hopefully they'll have us back again....might have to sneak Jason in under someone's coat though!! The look on the waiter's face last time, when Jason got up to load his plate for the 4th time was priceless lol

Re: Post match curry

I feel that Jason has really let the club down.....only two plates were consummed on Sunday.....very poor show! (Although I ahve to say the table was bowing with the weight of food on his plate!!)
The staff at the Indian did look alot happier this time as they may have just made a profit out of us!

Re: Post match curry

I'm still convinced that we were knobbled-either an appetite suppressant or some sort of bulking agent was snuck into that curry tongue I was so hungry after the race I could have eaten a horse (hooves included), but could only manage 2 servings (compared to 3 last time) sad Shameful!!

Thanks all who made it along though-it was the perfect way to spend a post race afternoon!
