Fifty Bangers attended the Banger Christmas Party at the clubrooms in Tenderloins Steak house last friday night. Traditionally these nights at the end of year have been superb get togethers This one was no exception.
The buffett was magnificent and the free keg of beer did not go astray. There were frequent requests during the evening from the beermaster, to chip in for more beer. He had no difficulty extracting baht from the thirsty punters who were intent on not letting a barrel or two spoil the night.
This was the first year women attended the party. For no particular reason, the club in the past, have never fostered womens rugby. Times have changed.
It was also an occasion for the club to give a final farewell to the popular chairman. Roberto Guolo. Roberto is returning to Italy. He was presented with a framed caricature by the club captain Andrew Tatam. Roberto seem happy with the caricature however, he decided to donate it back to the club to hang on the wall along his Italian national team jersey. Nice gesture.
The evening went on and on, with many Bangers migrating down to Soi Cowboy for a cleansing ale or three. It was late night/earlymorning for many. Report are still coming in.
