Christmas Party

When Saturday, 22 November at 18:30
Where Murrihuus in Schliern
Contact Gerd Ulbers
Deadline Monday, 17 November

Our Christmas Party is one of the most popular events on the annual ICB calendar. It always attracts a good turnout of members and is enhanced by the informal ambience and fine festive fare on offer. It is earlier than usual this year, because of the number of advance bookings.

As in previous years, this is a "pot-luck" event – that is, every participant should bring a dish to share for five to six people. When registering, please indicate which dinner or dessert dish you’ll be bringing.

The club party is free of charge for members. Participants not contributing a dish will be asked to pay CHF 30 for the evening. Guests are welcome (CHF 10). There will be a charge of CHF 10 per bottle of wine at dinner, but all other hot and cold beverages, including a prosecco apero, will be provided free by the club. The programme will include a team quiz with prizes.

We need volunteers to help with preparations (from 17:15). Anyone who can help should contact Gerd.

Please note that parking is limited around the Murrihuus. However, it is easily accessible by bus 10 every 7 to 8 minutes, as the end station is very near the Murrihuus.

Hi Graham
I will bring tonight copies from Silent Night and also my guitar.
If somebody has another instrument or guitar it will be fine!

members ask sometimes if we can sing Christmas carols. It depends on having a leader and some music - you are welcome to volunteer! We can print out words, for instance from
