OCCASIONAL BULLETIN # 116 – NOVEMBER 24, 2016.

Dear VOCS Members:

 

The first bit of this OB is aimed almost entirely at members and members’ friends and rellies who have kids who would enjoy going to a pantomime this Xmas season but also to those who do not fit those categories and who enjoy a good panto!

 

The second bit of this OB is aimed at those who are mad for the rugby thing and who will no doubt enjoy a huge English breakfast while watching large light-blue and dark-blue clad lads actually doing the rugby thing!

 

APOLOGIA! NO PIX IN OB # 115! L

 

We at VOCS do apologize for the lack of pictures in OB #115. We put some rather nice ones in, but the Mailchimp system that we use to send out OBs failed us and sent out only the naked text. Hopefully, we will do better this time, else Mailchimp may be tossed from the VOCS punt sans gilet de sauvetage!

YORK THEATRE, 639 COMMERCIAL DRIVE IN VANCOUVER

FRIDAY, DECEMBER 2, 2016 @ 7:00PM

 

After two wonderful events for members’ little people, with the garden parties at the UK consulate residence, thought was given for what else we might do to entertain VOCSian wee folk. Hence, the genesis of the First Annual VOCS Panto.

VOCS 1st ANNUAL VARSITY RUGBY MATCH BREAKFAST

MANCHESTER PUB, 1941 WEST BROADWAY IN VANCOUVER

THURSDAY, DECEMBER 8, 2016 – OPENS @ 6AM, WITH KICK-OFF @ 6:30AM

 

8o 890 456789           

VOCS members keen on the barbarians’ game played by gentlemen will remember our deep disappointment last year when some heartless, but doubtless needy swine, stole some vital piece of equipment from the automobile of the manager the day before the Varsity Match, resulting in the cancellation of what ought to have been VOCS’s first annual Varsity Match Breakfast. This year, we pray he will be more careful of vital pieces!

Please come along any time after 6:00am on Thursday, December 8th. Kick-Off is at 6:30am. Good timing, as the whole thing will be over in time to go to work! Feel free to wear college/university kit, although give it a good airing to get the essence of mothballs out.

The Manchester does an excellent cold weather, restorative, and sustaining English breakfast!

VOCS Match deal: $10 per breakfast!

In order for us to get an idea of numbers, if you plan on going to the Match Breakfast, please drop an email to Christina Sampogna at *protected email*

Cheers,

We at VOCS, in retirement….
