It’s been a while but we’re back at the best part of the year yet again, the time around the Summer Solstice.
The nights are long and golden, the leaves at their fullest and mysterious spirits gather around the Eyam stocks awaiting the arrival of the Rutland CC to perform their ritualistic crowning of the Drinking Chalice Champion!
We’ll be meeting at the Teacake meet at 7pm, heading down Grindleford and then straight up to the Eyam stocks to drink some Rum and enjoy this year’s unusual chalice entries.
Last year Gerry Acari won with a condom, it was outside the box enough to make the final and then beasted the ‘Crowd ClapOmeter’.
We now have an official Trophy so make sure you have a spare bottle cage to carry it home is case you win.
We’ll then cruise up to the Barrel pub for one then down the beautiful Abney descent, up Burbage and over the hill to the Norfolk Arms for sandwiches, chips and ale’s (see flyer attached)
Please get in touch with Brendon by email, text or Twitter for food numbers before next Wednesday and I’ll look forward to seeing you (and your wacky cups) at the Teacake next Friday.
All the best
2nd joint vice deputy ex Social Secretary,
