UCET Cordially Invite You, Your Family, and Nice Friends Who May Be Interested In Caving

To Our Annual Dinner (formally known as 'The Christmas Party')

On Saturday 20th January 2018

At The Crooked Horn, Brynford, Nr Holywell, Flintshire, CH8 8AX

From 7 p.m. 'til Midnight

This Is A Black Tie Event With Buffet


Tickets are £20 per person, to be paid via This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. (please select the 'Pay friends or family' option to avoid charges to the Club), or pay me in cash at the Glan if preferred.

3 song suggestions are also kindly requested for our very own playlist - no clever 27 minuters or the like please!

Trophies may be presented if we can get it together (but this is UCET!), and anyone named Doug may wear jump leads!

N.B. The payment deadline is Monday 11th December 2017 at 9 a.m.

I very much hope you can make it and look forward to seeing you all there :)

People, I've deleted the other rambling post to make it easier for Shan to continue with the Dinner Organisation with the posts all in one place - i.e. get your replies on here if you are going! :-)

Shan, Thank you for organizing the 'doo'. :-) :-)

It'll be a good 'un i'm sure! :-)

I am currently trying to pursuede family members that caving is not insanity, which they believe it to be, and that cavers are not all a load of drunks, and even if they are drunk and insane there could be some normal people at the annual do :unsure:

Unfortunately I am in two minds whether or not I am going to the Annual Dinner, got a lot of issues at the moment. Will see you all in the New Year though and I am thinking of spending a Saturday night at the Glan on the 24th November so I may see some of you then.

Well where's yours Captain - abandoned by the top dogs in name and spirit, yabooo!!! :P

I foresee a mince pie and a pint in The Glan coming on but it won't be for want of trying (100 individual invites, 6 clubs, 11 weeks formal notice)! But hey, I can eat loads of butties, and can't wait to see Ian throwing shapes to Comfortably Numb by the Floyd! ;)

Dear All,

There's been talk of shaking this up and enthusing people, as to date we have a party of 2!

So please imagine a drum roll, and become enthused for this fantastic night of fantasticness put on especially for all you very special people!

We anticipate individualised trophies made by the fair hands of our most retired member (Doug 1951)

Suggested categories are :-

Dope on a Rope

Best Vikki-ism ('Can I polish your helmet Ian?' (or something like that I'm told))

Best Armchair Caver

Best Digger

Best 'Fertility' (Murf 1948)

Best Photograph (of a cave or mine, not topless ladies or the like!).

Engineer of the Year. Suggestions/entries for all are warmly welcomed.

The food I'm assured will be tasty, tasty, very very tasty (Branflakes 1982)

The music will be eclectic with something to suit everyone (as long as you state your 3 song choices of course). A half baked idea if there's enough interest, is to state whether you'd like to perform a musical accompaniment/karaoke version of one of your choices in consideration of having so much talent and delusion within the club.

The atmosphere will obviously be atmospherical

What more can I say without sounding like a desperado - Why don't you come to your senses?!! (The Eagles 1973)

Just over two weeks to go for booking; can we fix it ...? (Bob the Builder 2007) :unsure:

P.S. If you have contacts for individuals of clubs we've caved with, can you please forward the invite to them and ask that they spread the word (quickly) just to make sure somebody has received it - Derbyshire, Wessex, Wirral, GOES, PUG, Grosvenor and NWCC.

Yours Desperately

Susan (Madonna 1985)
Last Edit: 2 weeks 19 hours ago by shananna. Reason: another trophy idea
