Excellent evening had by all at the latest instalment of Paulies Popular Pop Quiz – “large” bottle of JD won by Mr Hobbs for entering and winning Paul’s pop twitter competition (look out for future comps and prizes by following Paul on twitter). New teams and new winners were the theme of the evening, with the gang of six throwing it away after just too much Gin & JD!!! Mystics Musical sideshow saw the new girls winning tickets to the next Ha Ha Hassocks in October, but the Jackpot (£75) rolls over to the next quiz.
More fun was had at the DOGsoc OPEN golf day on Hollingbury golf course on a beautiful sunny Saturday, spoilt only by a large amount of torrential rain which coincided with tee-off. A first win for Danny Brent who mastered the conditions better than everyone else – the waterproof Sun-hat surely played a big part. A nearest the pin for FWB!! (yes really) and a longest drive for Mystic, just showed what a topsy turvey day it really was. Big congratulations also go to Ashley Williams for taking the (soon to be ) coveted TOP DOG trophy 2016-17 by doing just enough to edge out Ian Forshaw in the final – Ash also wins tickets for Ha HA Hassocks. and a big thank-you also to Martin Taylor for the hospitality and BBQ afterwards.
For the coming week the Purple Carrot is closed Monday, open Tuesday (including knit & Natter 7pm – all welcome) & Wednesday, and then closed Thursday – Monday inclusive. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Coming up we have Summer BBQ wine tasting on Wednesday 2 August, if we get enough people signed up, and heading into September, because there is still yet more demand, we have GIN III -the end to your summer – occurring on Friday 9 .
Lastly it is probably worth sharing that changes are afoot at and with the Purple Carrot and spaces should be watched for details, which we’ll fill up when we know more
