Pow Wow 2012

From the evidence in this photo it looks like it can be quite a tough crowd at our annual Pow Wow!  And you would be right . . . 

We have instigated a new tradition (!) of meeting up at least once a year to discuss "stuff" to with the group, what we like / dislike, hadn't thought of doing / maybe want to do, how we want to do it or not, latest beard growing / trimming techniques, pretty much anything that is relevant and sometimes plenty that is not.

As with everything we do, we try to be at least vaguely organized before the chaos of 30+ opinions kick in and people seek to express views they hold strongly before seeing the other side of a point of view and then recognizing the worth of their original line of thought before losing concentration and forgetting that they had their own opinion and then fall in line with the best idea they heard 2 minutes ago, if only they (or anyone) could remember what it was.  You get the idea.

Anyway, worst case we have an archetypal "Mrs Merton Heated Debate" and turn it into an excuse for a beer or two, a song or two, and some food and general social.

This year's agenda is

 Inner Circlers who can attend
16:15 - Set up Gazebo & BBQ & Back Room of The White Hart

Everybody else
17:00 - Arrive at The White Hart & buy refreshments at bar
17:15 - Start Pow Wow in Back room - Agenda below
18:15 - Singing session with Chris to review Delilah, Dry Stone Waller's song
18:45 - Food (BYO BBQ) & Social + some singing to the masses

As ever, all timings approximate, liable to change and acts of nature.

Please consider Family & Friends invited to the Food & Social side of things, BBQ facilities are being provided but to keep things as simple as possible we ask YOU to bring your own food to cook on the BBQ and any veg / salads etc to accompany it, basically a Bring Your Own BBQ.  Crockery and cutlery will be provided.

If Family & Friends need to arrive earlier than 18:45 can we suggest they might want to avail themselves of the pub facilities in the bar area, reading the paper or having a stroll round the village rather than attending the Pow Wow? (it's not like it is a secret session or anything, more in case they don't want to hear us yarning on about Bloke singing!)

Pow Wow Agenda

  1. Apologies for shameful lack of attendance
  2. Review Minutes of last Pow Wow
  3. Big Chief's Report (summary of last year, proposals/dates for the next year & Fascinating Facts Quiz)
  4. Finance Meister's Report
  5. Subscriptions
  6. Membership
  7. Review any Proposed Amendments to "The Magnificent Charter".
  8. Election of Officers
  9. A.O.B.

If you fancy coming along all we ask is that you let us know in advance so we know to let you in without giving you too hard a Paddington stare.  Email, just to be on the safe side.
