The May OW 100 Club draw was carried out on 31st May at The Wheel of Fortune in Alpington and the winners were:                                                                            

Chris & Mel Read  - Norfolk residents

Michael Stacey - resident of Litchard, Bridgend                                                

Cheques in the sum of £60 have been issued to the winners. 

Steve and I were joined by Chris Parnham, Joanna Voelker (Bassingthwaighte), Sandra Howard, Jane Harvey (Bassingthwaighte), Louise James (Hambelton) and two debutants - Steve Farthing and Jacky McLaren (Green).  The draw was kindly carried out by Jacky.

I think some record of extremes might have been created regarding the distances that people have travelled to attend the draw! Whilst Steve Farthing lives in Swardeston (others will probably correct me but it is a mere 10 miles away), Jacky resides in Mount Eden, Auckland, New Zealand (approx 11,500 miles!). Thanks for popping by on your European tour Jacky!                     

A few photos of the evening can be seen here - Jacky is the one in white and it is Steve Farthing loitering in front of the Wheel of Fortune. Apologies for the quality of the indoor photos, the lighting was particularly poor.

I think the bar takings at The Wheel of Fortune would have been pretty slim of we hadn't been in attendance. It was a pleasant hostelry, just not many people about on a Wednesday evening. 

     

 

 

 

 

The November 100 Club draw was carried out on Tueday 22nd November at The Queen of Iceni in Norwich City Centre   and the winners were: 

 

Chris & Mel Read - residents of South Norfolk 

Mervyn Taylor - resident of Leamington Spa (former pupil and teacher!)

 

 This was the traditional pre-Xmas lunchtime gathering of the '60's Bunch'. Attendees this year were (and in no particular order and apologies if I have missed anyone out!): Colin Farrington, Philip Wade, Alan Bridges, Heather Gill (Stark), Joanna Voelker (Bassingthwaighte), Jane Bassingthwaighte, Louise James (Hambelton), Sandra Howard, Alan Corrigan, Adrian Marfleet, Anne Wright, Sandra Hornigold (Leeks), Suzanne Barrett, Marion Reed (Rix), Eileen Wyatt (Pearson), Ian Ray, Steve Read, Phil Robinson. The draw was kindly carried out by Alan Corrigan. 

 

It was another opportunity to mix with fellow Wycol Alumni in a very social atmosphere and reaslise the different 'connections' that being a former Wycol pupil can throw up! Being a Wetherspoons establishment, the fact that the offer of lunch and a pint was 8.40 was a bonus!
