Sinfin Running Club Dinner / Dance / Presentation Evening 12/01/2019
It’s come round again – our Annual Dinner / Dance / Presentation evening.
Come to think of it – it’s never in that order – we cam’t call it the Dinner / Presentation / Dance evening as it don;t sound right – let’s rename it to the Sinfin Running Club Awards Evening instead.
It’s come round again – our Annual Sinfin Running Club Awards evening
This is the time when we celebrate our club members achievements throughout 2018.
This year the venue for the Awards evening was the Folly at the Farmhouse (Near Mackworth).
Pre-drinks begin at 7pm in the bar upstairs but yet and again, by the time I got there, the bar was heaving so it was downstairs to the Folly to get to the bar to get the first drink in.
We were seated by 7.45 with the starters out shortly after that.
After the mains and then puddings came out it was straight onto the presentations.
