New Clubhouse delayed by Selection Committee!

Although pitches had been laid the first brick had not arrived so news that the new clubhouse and ground were to be officially opened the following September turned out to be overly optimistic (by 12 months!). Less  unexpected was the announcement that the “house beer” was to be selected by a small team of representatives from each team plus the Clubhouse Committee (these being Peter Ord and Graham Waters). The selection process was to involve a series of brewery visits and tastings. How the winning beer was to be selected was not discussed but it was agreed that if any one could remember a particular visit that would automatically disqualify the brewery in question (this being irrefutable inverse logic!). In support of funding for the new club house Graham Wilson was asked and accepted the task of signing up 1000 Vice Presidents at £5 per person. Its impossible to imagine today that such a task might be considered even at £5 let alone the today equivalent of £20.
