Tammy Matters

Dear all

Commodore Chris is still away, so I am filling in again this week.

I would like to welcome any new subscribers to Tammy Matters.

Back to normal racing this week.  A relief to have wall to wall sunshine after the horrible weather the day before.  See News item with Jonathan Key’s photos

Back onshore the Bridge Group held their annual Help for Heroes Bridge Drive, raising £822 to go to the charity.  Thanks to Colin and Margaret Stokes and helpers for organising this very successful event.

Saturday 23rd  November. We are on the countdown to the Annual Prize Giving and Dinner.  The punters are signing up, including several families which is great to see.  All are welcome, the more the merrier.  We are using an outside chef this year, and the main menu is as follows:

Main Course:

“Corn Fed Chicken supreme, Chanterelle and Madeira veloute, Kale, Sautéed potato, Mustard Frills, Chive Oil”

There will be a vegetarian option – which MUST be requested in writing please to avoid disappointment

‘Childrens’ menu for under 18 will be

Lasagne followed by ice creams/sauces – again very important we have numbers for this – £10 per head.

Sounds great to me.
