Summertime and the living is easy, or in the case of the current climate, the living is wet! But fear not as the inclement weather won’t stop the annual OVFM Garden Party from going ahead, oh no.
Assuming the role of host again this year is club treasurer David “Off-Shore Account” Laker who is clearly a glutton for punishment if he is opening his home to us lot again but if he is kind enough to do so then it would be rude not to take advantage.
You may have noticed this year’s event is happening a little later than usual and as such, to accommodate this, the kick off time has been brought forward to enjoy more of the evening light; therefore please arrive at 6:15pm for a 6:30pm start! The address can be found in the Member’s Only section of this site (so be sure you are logged in to see it).
David asks that no-one park their cars on the grass verge outside his palatial abode as it isn’t politically correct or something so perhaps this is one instance where carpooling might be a good idea to ensure plenty of spaces along the road for everyone.
As ever, the host only provides the location so those of you attending this tawdry shindig are advised to bring your own plates, cutlery (if you prefer your own over plastic forks), glasses, condiments (if your favourite isn’t available), chairs and tables. Coffee and tea will be served as per normal, as will squash and water but feel free to bring any other drinks if you like. Oxygen is free. Hopefully by now you should have all submitted your choice of meal via the form passed round at the last few club meetings. If not, it looks like you are going to starve. **EDIT** – Oh an umbrella might comes in handy too, just in case….
Since it has become something of a tradition at Chez Laker (or maybe a sign that he has run out of ideas) the legendary table tennis table will be available for use so if you fancy pinging or ponging some balls to amuse yourself, the opportunity will be there. Other activities rumoured to be open to all this year include a Twerking competition, a Tae-Kwon-Do tournament, Spot the Pimple, a poetry reading from the works of Piers Morgan and a round of Chasing The Dragon.
There is nothing like an OVFM Garden Party but that isn’t my fault, it is what you make of it which is why I stay away! The rest of you are free to enjoy yourselves if you wish.
Have fun kiddies, just don’t make the 10 o’clock news again like you did last year….
