Like the turning of the seasons and the inevitability of a paupers grave, the annual Club punting trip is approaching over the flooded fields of Oxfordshire in time for St George's Day.
So join us in this most august of traditions and come punting. Someone has fallen in every year we go which is statistically impossible, so now we have an annual sweepstake with the winner sweeping the pot into their boater and buying themselves another drink. They may even buy one for the poor sod who was the sacrifice to The River Gods this time.
We assemble at the Turf Tavern for a sharpener around 10:30 then onto Magdalen Bridge boathouse for 12:00 where we cast off for a few hours in punts, rowboats and assorted contraptions. There follows a shared picnic, then we punt back and head into the fleshpots of Oxford for the evening. Jolly boating fun.
More details to follow.
