Pub after the game

Postby Yith » Wed Dec 13, 2006 9:56 pm

After the game on Sunday we will probably head down to the local pub... the Duke of Wellington. They do some nice food and excellent beer. :)

To get to it turn left out of the F&O carpark. Continue on to the main road. Turn right... then travel about a mile or so into Matlock and its on the right shortly after the 30mph limit.

Would be great to have everyone turn up in kit and surprise the staff and locals! (without guns and knives though please!)

I think a pint is most definately in order after the game :)

Question is - how will the locals deal with it? people turning up in DPM after a normal game day is one thing, but some people are a little tetchy about German uniforms....

Ah, but it will clear the bar so no hanging around catching the bar tender's eye!

The pub is well used to weird folk turning up of a Saturday, Gucci thinks it's cool though!

There are various scales of "weird" - but you're right. This should clear the bar pronto :)

Don't forget all, there were many casualties in peace-time after the ETO war had ended through soldiers drink-driving.

Please be sensible and observe the law.
