Italian Night 15th November 2014
As always seems to happen when we have an event at the clubhouse the weather makes it difficult for us. Torrential rain on Thursday night waterlogged the Hood and our home games were called off. But the bar was nicely full at 5pm to start the evening off watching England beat Slovenia. There was a good showing of the 1s whose game was off and the 2s who had lost 6-4 in North London. The 5s were there and a good crowd of the youth teams and their parents. Then it was an Italian Dinner cooked by Marcello and David. They are just launching their catering business and it was a great advert for them. The food was excellent, starters Salata Caprese or/and parma ham and melon. Main course Gnocchi with vegetarian or meat sauce or both and a house speciality of tiramisu or casata. There was a good selection of Italian wines available and a lot was consumed. The youth teams helped out with serving and tidying up. Special thanks to Peter and Jasper Kent who manned a very busy bar and helped out with all sorts of other things in the course of the night. Thanks to our chefs of the day Marcello and David and all else who helped and supported this event. The fancy dress prize was not won and will be a rollover to the next event. Specially commended were Marcello for being Italian and will be famous and his son who looked like a famous Italian Footballer in Italian kit. The Ravinelli twins were commended . The profits from it are to go towards the cost of Sky Television so that we can show it on Saturdays and Sundays in the bar.
Next events at the Bar are Christmas Drinks – 13th December
Youth section Christmas Party – 2pm Saturday 20th December
New Year Quiz – Saturday in January 2015 (to be decided)
