Our next meeting will be on Thursday 23rd October and will be held in a private house in Stanford. Please get in touch if you would like to come along and need directions. As usual, we will be playing shorter games from 7.30pm as people arrive, until 8pm when we will start something a little longer.
This will be a special meeting because we had to cancel Tuesday (because the pub was holding a Chinese Night) and everyone who went to the Spieltage in Essen can’t wait to show off their new toys! For this reason, the “Feature Game” will be “something brought back from Germany”.
And talking of Germany…
Jeff was dealing with his late German Grandfather’s effects. He had been clearing the cupboard and had decided to give all his Grandfather’s old clothes to the local charity shop. He handed over the bag of clothes to the shop assistant who was rummaging through it when a horrified expression formed on her face.
“How dare you bring this uniform in to my shop!” she exclaimed angrily. “This is a symbol of pain, shame and humiliation.”
Hugely embarrassed at this turn of events, Jeff quickly took back the bag.
“I’m truly sorry,” he stammered, “I had no idea my Grandfather was an Arsenal fan…!”
