Army v Navy ~ Rugby @ Twickenham
Saturday 3rd May 2008
10 Seats left on the Coaches
The RNRU do not allocate tickets or coach passes for Twickers any more, this is now done by a Civvy Company.
The cost of the tickets and coach are not known as yet. Pete has only just found out the changes, hence the lateness of this email. As soon as we know the actual price and pick up points, we will let you all know SOOONNNNEST.
2 Coaches booked
with 98 seats in total leaving from the Phoenix Public House, Torrington
Road North End between 09.00 and 09.15 Saturday 3rd May.
Breakfast will be available from 07.30. at the Phoenix Public House.
Due to problems that we experienced last year with Twickenham's Health Safety, Security and Catering Staff, I have had to get arm bands printed which will entitle you to drink at our Bar. These will be issued on the coaches. Obviously I am relying on you ALL not to abuse this system by giving all your Oppo's that you meet a beer. If this is seen to be happening we will have to refuse service. I will take the same amount of beer as we have taken the last few years and we have never run out. So please enjoy and respect this facility.
The ticket price has been increased to £60.00 to absorb the cost of the beer. The normal Buffet will be available at lunchtime and Johny Garrett, the Landlord at the Phoenix, is putting on a Karaoke night for our return.
I have also been able to get 2 Coach passes for the West Car Park which will make a change from the North. The Stadium has been resigned so the rows have been re numbered. I have requested tickets so that we are in the middle stand(out of the rain) which is center of the West Stand. Hopefully this is what we will be given.
Please make cheques payable to "P.Ruddock" as I am having to pay
everything upfront from my own account.
Looking forward to a Navy win and a really good day out.
For those that live the Eastney End, you can come to the Back Room of the SloB for 08.00, give us a hand to load and then the Coach will leave at 08.15 to go to the Phoenix where we will be able to get a breakfast.
