.......................................... :director: D’ya hear there, d’ya hear there… =; Attention all intending attendees of...

:bob dark: :bob dark: :bob dark: :bob dark: Image :bob dark: :bob dark: :bob dark: :bob dark:

The 2020 (19th) Annual RAN Skilled Hands Sydney Rocks Xmas Pub Crawl Smokey...
.................................................................................. (...including those of you as yet undecided, sitting on the fence...!) :finga:

After careful consideration, along with a degree of anguished deliberation, (not to mention the continued border restrictions imposed by certain State Governments, designed to keep :mex: Mexicans :mex1:
in Mexico,)
The ‘A’ Team :3some: have arrived at the inescapable conclusion, :dontknow: that to proceed with :tchin: our iconic :ouzo: annual event :wine: would put at unnecessary risk, :-k those of our
number considered to be in a :old1: high-risk :old: cohort, who were planning to attend… :icare:
It is therefore with heavy :heart: heart that we have decided that The 2020 (19th) Annual RAN Skilled Hands Sydney Rocks Xmas Pub Crawl Smokey must be deferred for this year, :bugger: thus avoiding the
very real possibility that any of our Senior :bigsmurf: Citizens could be compromised, which, in turn, would prevent them from attending The 2021 (20th #-o er, 19th ) :roll: Annual RAN Skilled Hands Sydney Rocks
Xmas Pub Crawl Smokey
, to be held over the weekend of Friday 5th to Sunday 7th of November 2021… [-( (This year's event is the first we've been forced to cancel since we launched in Nov. 2003...) #-o

:bob dark: :bob dark: Image :bob dark: :bob dark:

.........................The 2019 Team... :terrified: :faaaarrk: :down: Why not join us next year for :dontknow: :tchin: :ouzo: :drink 29: :drinkers: :wine: :occasion5: :cocktail: :drink 42: :partyman: :drink eat:

..........................Image

=; Meanwhile, if this unfortunate change of plans has meant that anybody has made prior arrangements which can’t readily be cancelled, of if you're simply a 'local' who'd like to catch up, I’m happy to travel
down from the NSW Central Coast to join you for a :happy1: laid-back, :tchin: leisurely lunch, :drink eat: on Saturday 7th November, at a Rocks venue of your choice, just let me know… :yess: Any takers...? :dontknow:

Not unexpected but a decision based on the common good. I guess you could offer a timing of the run and it could be conducted from the safety of individual residences with reporting on this site throughout the day.....

Removes trip hazards, COVID19 and enables a more leisurely "sup" at pubs (walking time removed). The ability to maintain contact on the interweb retains part of the bond rekindled each year.

:-k Anybody familiar with 'Zoom'..? :dontknow: Image ...Or we could have opted for Bruce D's clever 'Socially :drink 42: :drink 42: Distanced' version... :yea:

Bruce D wrote:
New rules for Pub Crawls,

* select twenty pubs, allot one MOBI per pub,

* one drink (two if you are quick),

* allow 15 minutes at the venue then move onto the next pub,

* if you spot another member of the pub crawl between pubs, cross to the other side of street,

* no talking to other member excepts by phone,

* all meals will be taken in separate pubs at the same time.

* to prevent arguments, wives, girlfriends, mistress and better (or worse) halves are allotted separate pubs (or they can be sent out shopping).

* further rules to be decided.

Hi Rick, if there is enough 'local' interest I'm up for a 'quiet' lunch / drink sometime over that weekend. After all we're not dead yet!


I'm happy to train it down to Sydney to join Dave :hello2: (and any other :3some: takers,) at the Rocks :yess: and as it's just a laid-back leisurely :drink eat: lunch and a :happy1: few :wine: convivials :tchin: :ouzo:
and considering the savings, (no accommodation, no multi-pub drinking, no final-pub swilling,) I'm thinking we might even opt for one of the more :bye: salubrious pub restaurants for the occasion, maybe
upstairs at the Palisade, or the Harbour View, or the roof-top beer garden of the Glendale...! :supz:
