The Inn With a Well, Ogbourne St George, Wiltshire

December 2012

Darts Tournament 

The end of December saw the 2011 Inn with the Well singles Darts Tournament. After hours of multi-board action Pat Mason emerged triumphant and added his name to the long and distinguished list of previous winners (all three of them)! The crowd’s favourite, however, was surely Phil who fought back from a first round defeat to claim the plate tournament (guess who wrote this???)! All eyes now turn back to our on-going dart’s ladder. 

Darts & Music Quiz 

During the month of December we had our Darts Quiz, with Donzil and Andy Harrop claiming Bully’s Star Prize of a bottle of fine port each! A shout out must also go to Alastair who won himself an extra small Inn with the Well shirt and a chocolate bar! The same month saw the our fantastic music quiz, which was brilliantly organised by Mr Kevin Akers. The team of Richard Thomas, Tom Hepple, Anna Hepple & Jenny Hepple came out on top (mainly due to Tom’s infinite knowledge of 1990’s dance music!). A big thank-you to all who participated in these events because together they saw us raise a terrific £181.37 for Prospect!

Christmas Day 

Great to see so many faces at the bar for a Christmas drink. Thanks to al the guest who partook of Xmas lunch. New Years Eve Angie and Andrew played out 2011 in style and for a change we had Auld Lang Syne sung properly and got midnight on the dot! Thanks to all who came in the spirit and dressed accordingly.

The big breakfast 

Tough session for the chef but a nice end to the winter festivities. 

6X Promotion 

This winter witnessed 6X fever grip Ogbourne St George with our 6 x 6X promotion with a weekend trip to the New Forest up for grabs. The winner was decided on New Year’s eve as Dave Brooks (an out-of-towner!!!) claimed the prize. Well done Dave! 

Bar Top/Cellar/Room Floor/Toilet Refurbished 

All the jobs that needed doing were done, thanks to Big Phil and Andy the pony tail, or setting up the bar and getting rid of the dust. 

Cask Marque 

We recently had our regular Cask Marque check and as usual received a 100% certification. 

Pig Racing Friday

Good luck Betsy!Thanks for pointing out how well "smart"liberal oaverngnce has worked in Chicago, tfhr. "Exceptions to the rules enable politicians and their personal friends to own and even carry handguns - but nobody else." Apparently they and their thug "friends" are out there using the guns they are allowed to have.Otherwise one might conclude that their "smart" ban on guns is not working. It reminds me of Rosie O'Donnell--who railed against the second ammendment --yet she had body guards--who did carry guns.
