Many thanks to all who attended the dinner, it was a great evening and from the feed back everyone had a good time. I would like to thank the people who took charge of the buses to ensure everyone get there and back safely, John, Woody, Christina
It was a pity a few people couldn’t make it at the end, some we knew about, but the ones who said they were going nd then just didn’t turn up, is a little disappointing, because we still had to pay for their places.
Looking forward to next years and hopefully we can beat the number this year of 81
This years MUDSA dinner will be held on Friday 8th November, so the day after the 4th Europa Cup tie and before the Brighton home game.
As most of you know, we are one of the largest parties at the dinner, and following the jokes made by the compere last year about us only having 1 more person than the year before, I told him we will take 8 tables.
We currently have 80 confirmed, so all 8 tables are full, but we have some flexibility to increase this by taking some tables for 12 people. Thinking due ot the layout we would only be able to have 3-4 tables of 12, so 88 is the maximum number we should be looking at.
The guest speaker is Ole Gunnar Solskjaer so what a coup that is for MUDSA
We will run buses, and it could be that we run a coach from Chapel and pick up in Whaley, New Mills and Disley before going on the bypass to OT. Another coach or mini buses from Glossop, Compstall & Marple, Hazel Grove, Davenport and Stockport as required.
The menu will be :
Starter – Mrs. Kirkham’s Cheese and Leek Tart, Heritage Tomato and Red Onion Salad, Smoked Sweet Vinaigrette Dressing
Main Course –Lake District Lamb Shank, Parmesan Mash, Wilted Cabbage, Carrot Puree, Minted Jus
Desert –Sticky Date and Toffee Pudding with Butterscotch Sauce, Vanilla Seed Ice Cream
Coffee & Mint Chocolates
The Vegetarian option to the main course is:
Beetroot and Ricotta Gnocchi, Textures of Greens, Slow Roast Beets, Balsamic Glaze, Tempura Leaves and Horseradish Cream
