God rest ye Merrie (Ladies and )Gentlemen

We had a wonderful time. Many thanks for a great evening

Pauly was busy with the camera but it needs to be recorded that he shared an award with two absent friends Robin and Tony : The Monthly Feck-Up Award (beautifully made by Andy Hightower : class) for Environmental Services : i.e. dredging local harbours.

Lots of highlights of the night (will remember once we sort photos) but certainly the effort made with the outfits was truly amazing : everything from Black Tie & Lovely Dresses to 'I'm too Cool For Crimbo' black outfits...and here's the amazing bit : DRYSUITS, WETSUITS AND SURFING USA SHORTS!!!!!


Some peeps travelled from afar also : not only the wonderful Littlehampton lot led by Wise Man Andre but also of course Solent regular Bogib and his son Jon Baldur.

Loads more to report but work calls. Thanks again : especially for the wonderful surprises

Magic

Vivienne and I had a wonderful night.

Thanks to Nasher for giving his name but very little else to the night. I hope you got to Heathrow safely this morning.

Thanks to Martin and Anto for organising the menu etc.
Thanks to A.Y. for keeping all but Tim M under control.

Thanks to Missus, for services above and beyond the call of duty, and for redistributing a load of surplus hair styling products.

And finaly....
Thanks to everyone else for coming along. I would have been very dull if you hadn't. It was a great pleasure to meet all your "ribbing widows."
Merry Christmas

With all those hair products comming out the bag I was getting worried....

Thanks Pete for the lift, and I recon I got the best Present, a brand new 13.25 x 18" stainless prop for my RIB. Thanks Bogi!

Merry Christmas to one and all!
