Calling all Waterbowlers!

Evening social
The evening will commence with a curry at the traditional Waterbowl hangout- Kismet in Stockport. Cost for this is £15. Monies should be directed to Alex (Leip)

Post evening social

As part of our ongoing commitment to provide each attendee with a genuine experience of the north of England the official Waterbowl evening out will take place at Belle Vue greyhound track. Where, with a pint of warm bitter in hand you can cheer/boo giant whippets as they race around a track. It's a really fun evening out, so I hope many of you can join us.

More info:
http://www.lovethedogs.co.uk/bellevue

Costs:
If we book in advance £7 each to include entry, a drink, £2 bet, and programme. I think I will ask everyone for a £11, which will include taxi there (refunds if I undercost fares). Although at the moment I need number estimates, so please declare interest! If you want just the entry and programme, £3.50 + the taxi.
(If you don't sign up in advance you still can get in, but at a cost of £7, and no freebies.)

Timings:
Races run from 7.30 - 10.30. It's approx 20 minutes in a taxi. The curry will be at 6.30pm, so we will aim to leave the restaurant at 7.45ish.

Approved. Good plan, I'm in. Excited to see the Sizzler select quality thoroughbreds.

I'm also going to Sunderland dogs in February.

This must make me some sort of addict!

(I'm in needless to say - great idea!)

That would be excellent, thanks Bren. I'll hold off taking money until we have enough to make it fly. I think we need 10 or so?

3 in 15 mins though, a promising start!

I'm in. The last time I went here the first dog I bet on won AND did a poo in front of everyone, so I really can't recommend this place highly enough.

Ninjahamster is in, as are Shane, Björn & I.

I'm pretty sure Sizzle will be up for it too.

Add Food + Brio to the list too :)

I'm looking to book us in in the next few days. Hopefully by Friday.

So, this is a call for £££ to the above address. PM me if unsure how to interpret nickharding at gmail dot com.
