An update from Peter Harvey, known on Fifteensquared as Kathryn’s Dad:

Only a couple of weeks to go now before the Sloggers and Betters lunch at Waterfall in Derby on Saturday 26th November, so just an update for everyone who’s indicated they’re coming, and a chance for anyone who still fancies attending to let me know.  We currently have 57 confirmed (17 Sloggers and 40 Betters).  I’ll have a list of attendees and badges to hand out to everyone on the day, so that you can catch up with anyone you particularly want to chat to.  It’s 12:30 for a 1:00 sit down and I’ve arranged for six separate tables so that we can circulate a bit more easily once we’ve finishing eating. Early birds can repair to The Brunswick, which is an excellent real ale pub 100m along from Waterfall and opens at 11:00.

Since we are legion, I have arranged for us to have a hot buffet.  The choices will be Vegetable Stroganoff, Cottage Pie, and Chicken Jalfrezi, with the usual accompaniments; and because the numbers are high, I’ve got us a deal at £8 per head, so I hope that suits everyone.  Desserts can be ordered from the menu.

If you need to get me on the day, my mobile is 07802 154569.

Really looking forward to seeing everybody there, especially the new faces for this time round.

Best regards

Peter/Kathryn’s Dad
