With 2013 being the year of the Lardies’ Four Capitals Tour we are very happy to announce the details of the third leg which is happening just outside Edinburgh in June. To be precise the luxurious surroundings of Musselburgh Rugby Club will be the setting for a day long feast of Lard on Saturday the 22nd of June. Starting at 10am and ending at 5pm we plan to run numerous games over a number of tables for our chums north of the border. Dux Britanniarum, Chain of Command, I Ain’t Been Shot Mum, Algernon Pulls it Off, Charlie Don’t Surf will all be on display and we are busy planning others, so do let us know what you fancy playing, or if you or your local club fancy running a game.
Both Richard Clarke and Nick Skinner will be running games as will a selection of local Lardies. Musselburgh Rugby club features a licensed bar and has a proud heritage in the official sport of Lard Island, Rugby Union. We hope there’ll be plenty of opportunity to talk all things Lard and have a few pints over an enjoyable day of gaming. After a fun filled day of games attendees will be invited to come along to Stagg’s Bar, winner of the Lothians’ Pub of the Year for 2012, and quite possibly on for a curry after that.
Cost should be about £5 a head, though this will be confirmed closer to the time – we’ll certainly try to keep this to a minimum. If you are interested in coming, or even better running a game on the day, you should contact our very own Entertainments Officer for Scotland, Derek Hodge, at email@example.com Numbers will be limited so you should get in touch as soon as possible.
Edinburgh will be our third capital in 2013, with Crusade in Penarth near Cardiff in January, Salute in London in April and we have big plans for Belfast in August. So, come along and join us for a great day of gaming in Scotland in June.
The French maison bourgeoise is a thing of beauty which, to me, epitomises the sparkle of the Second Empire. Most English-French dictionaries describe them as “imposing town houses” or similar, but that fails to truly sum up what are in fact the small aspirational semi-chateaux of the nouveau riche who profited from the “Carnival Empire”.
