Hi guys, spoke to the club and it's all systems go!!

A couple of things - first, and this is brilliant, Andy Rix is our guest for this one.

Pretty sure the last time I saw Andy DJ was at Drunken Monkey and we all know how long ago that was! Everyone is aware of the tunes he has turned up so we are chuffed to bits that he's agreed to join us. 

Add to that the usual Grumpy irregulars Carl, Dave and Phil and I'm sure you'll agree it will be one hell of a night. Roll on :thumbup:

Second, the club owner told me that people were smoking inside the club in July (which obviously isn't on) so we ask that those responsible please do not do it again, thanks x

We've been looking to get Andy on since the off and are absolutely delighted that he's gonna guest for us in November. It's been waaaay too long.

Promises to be an absolutely fantastic night!

Flyers have arrived and will be out and about soon so please do look out for those. They have all the info about the night plus travel directions on the back. An obligatory jibjab / cinematic masterpiece will be along too in the not so distant future, sorry :lol:

Hi Joan & Phil

Does the clubs no smoking rules rule out the use of indoor fireworks, if so can we share out a packet of sparklers in the smoking shelter. I must say it's been a hell of a long time since I last saw our esteemed guest Brian Rix running around a stage with his trousers around his ankles !!!!

Haha, you're a mine of social facts David lol

Andy's proper looking forward to it, as are we, can't wait to hear what he's going to treat us to!! 

Fortnum's been on, effervescent as usual and can't wait to have more people to vent at. Been practicing his floor work too has the lad, always a treat for the eyes :D

Seriously, with Andy joining the regulars, the music is going to be awesome. He hasn't dj'd anywhere in years and is really up for it so hope loads of you can join us. It's going to be brilliant  :thumbup:

Apologies for the lateness of the hotel info, been mad busy at work and stuff but here you go:

Closest is the Camponile on Lowlands Road, WA7 5TP. 01928 581 771 / book on-line

Holiday Inn on Wood Lane, WA7 3AH. 0871 942 9070 / book on-line

Premier Inn on Chester Road, Preston Brook, WA7 3BB. 0871 527 8954 / book on-line

Can't believe it's only two weeks away, get in!! :thumbup:

There's also a taxi office on the club car park which is handy if you're staying over - roll out of the club straight into a cab, perfect!

Now I know you've all been waiting so here you go (sorry Andy), the first masterpiece of the thread lol

All the ducks at the back of the Navy club have been moved into temporary sheltered accommodation so none of them get broken. So I have been reliably informed.
