Great evening at The Churchillian...almost 20 stalwarts of the RIBbing world congregated to share their wisdom and advice...oh OK then to drink a few bevvies after work
There was an Anniversary feel to the proceedings as roses and wine did feature.
The chat was mighty...Pete 7 is back from his diving adventures and the other divers in the group including the intrepid Kathryn & Aging Youth were telling us about drift diving near Horse Sand Fort 8-) 8-)
Mark H had a beautiful photo of his boat and family tearing across to Cowes (Andy's work I think?).
A prop seems to turn up with increasing frequency at these gatherings
and it was Olly's turn last night. He ended up going home with some trim tabs which have weathered Solent waters once or twice
and was heard to say 'bit like Scrapheap Challenge' as we wished him good luck!
The excellent reps of Portsmouth University were there ! Don't know how you students actually fit in study these days with all your other careers Jimbo!
Look forward to news of the boat.
Nemo looked a little tireder than usual but Natalie and Nemo Jnr. had given him the evening off
Robin headed off on an unstoppable quest for one of those extra-special burgers from the burger van across the road (as recommended by Tony!).
Following Martin, Mark and Paul's excellent sartorial efforts,
a decision was taken that the next gathering will be 'lairy shirt night' with a prize for the best ! Anto has declared that we ladies will be taking part also
Great to see everyone! . Julia and Natalie and Amy you were missed! See ye next time!
A great evening...cracking location, cracking peeps

This idea was rejected immediately by the ladies present as being wholly inappropriate. We will turn up in our lairy shirts too and if necessary my pink wellies may get anouther outing
