On another note, my understanding is the Slye Fox will be showing the
6-nations game coming up. I am not sure of the details, so if someone has
them let me know and I will share them with the group. Things start at the
beginning of Feb so there is still time to figure this ot.

NOBS NEWS: Gnome Bowl (Dec 31) and New Yeas Day

I good run around the dome yesterday to work off the Christmas pudding and other festive food and drink.  Thanks to Nick P. for organizing the event and for a good turnout.  There are still opportunities to work of the holidays.  

On Dec 31 the Gnome Bowl – 11:30 – sharp so the teams can be selected. The event usually goes to about mid afternoon with a series of games with one team having bragging rights for a year.  It is a good mix of young and old!  Traditionally this is on Jan 1 – but not this year.  (Please correct me if I have the start time wrong).

On New Years day, we are looking at an outdoor touch game at 1:00.  Let see if we have enough to do this.  Let me know if you are in for a New Years Day run.  You could do the Gnome Bowl and a New Years Day run to start the year off!
