+++Solent RIB.net X-MAS Bash+++

Announcing the 2007 Solent RIB.net Christmas Bash.

Venue
The Lightship Restaurant, Haslar Marina, Gosport.
Date
Friday 21st December 2007 at around 19:30hrs.

As most will know, the Lightship is moored on a pontoon in Haslar Marina.
It includes full Restaurant facilities and a bar with a decent wine list.
Itís an atmospheric place for a group of boaty type friends to have a meal, especially after youíve had a few drinks and a Cross Channel Ferry goes by about 20 yards off the Port side. Ė Itís a moving experience!

The event is booked for 30 People and will cost £25:00 per head, which includes a three-course meal, and a Glass of Champagne on arrival.

The menu is posted below, although I will post an update when the restaurant have confirmed the Fish and Vegetarian dishes.

Voluntary Dress code for this event is as usual - Black Tie.

Now the hard part - Admin.
Please PM me your interest, and places will be noted on a first come first served basis.
If the interest is very good, I may be able to increase the numbers, but this option will disappear rapidly.
On receipt of the PM I will supply an address to send a £5:00 per person non-refundable deposit, I will need these as soon as possible, as I will have already paid the deposit for 30 people.
The remainder of £20:00 will need to be collected during the week before the event.

Unfortunately due to the size of our party we will need to pre-order our food.
At the beginning of December I will be chasing everyone for a choice of Starter, Main and Dessert.

Drinks
As mentioned the price per head will include a glass of Champagne on arrival.
All other drinks will be the responsibility of the individual to order, and importantly pay for. Myself and the others helping to organize this event will not accept any responsibility for unpaid bar bills at the end of the night.

Following an informal get together at Port Solent, The Jackeens, Nautibouy, Froglover, Aging Youth, Hightower, and myself will attempt to organise it all and make it a memorable evening for all. Any offers of help with transport etc will be gratefully received.

Any other thoughts and arrangements will be posted as we think of them.

Nasher.

On the transport front, if anyone wants to save them self the drive around the harbour from Portsmouth, I will be running accrosss in Evolution from Gunwarf Marina. In exchange for a beverage at the Lightship, you are more than welcome to park for free at Gunwarf and get a ride over, and then back again at the end of the evening.

Parking at Gunwharf

Hi Tim,

I am not sure that parking in Gunwharf is free? The last time I was there it was quite expensive on an hourly rate.

Can anyone help/check this please if you are in the area.

Many thanks

Hi kevin. It is expensive in the big carpark, but I live there (or is that here) and have ample free secure parking. You would be more than welcome to park on that eve if you like.
