Army v Navy 5th May 2018

As usual The Army  v Navy match will be played at Twickenham Stadium, the home of English Rugby, will be the host as it has been since 1920. The Army v Navy show-down marks the culmination of the Inter-Service Championship, a battle between the Army, Royal Navy and Royal Air Force for the prestigious Babcock Trophy. Formed of players who are all in service, the last three years have brought us a different championship winner each time (RAF 2015, Royal Navy 2016, Army 2017), and so it is all to play for in 2018. As well as the desire to be Inter-Service Champions, both the Army and Royal Navy place great significance in winning the match itself, and with the Army having secured the 100th Match win, the Royal Navy will be keen to kick off the new centenary as winners of Match 101.


The event is expected to sell out very quickly, so don't miss out on tickets, get the date in your diary now. Each ticket gives you access to all four matches played on the day; the Veterans, the Women, Oxbridge U23s v UKAF and the Senior XV, so make a day of it by coming along early to enjoy the pre-match entertainment and soak up the atmosphere in the build-up to the main match – you won't be disappointed!


For those who cannot make Twickenham and live in the Plymouth area, The RAOB club will be televising it. So come along for some cheap beer and dits.

Ski Holiday 24th Feb - 3rd  Mar 2019


SESTRIERE 2019

This Years Skiing Holiday to Sestriere went really well with some Great Snow conditions. To that end We are looking at doing it again next year. Hopefully we will get a big Group to go (So bring a few friends), a few single rooms are also available for solo Skiers if not wanting to share.

So the Ball is in your Court if you would like to give it a go as a few of us are all going again.

Dates will be Sun 24th Feb 2019 for 1 week (The week after Half term for Schools). We will be going to Sestriere in Italy again with Crystal Ski (Thomson) (Link HERE) (As it offers Great resort level skiing with guaranteed snow, Resort height is over 2000 meters) and are looking at booking the Du Col Hotel again this Year which is a Half Board, Ski in Ski out hotel, offering excellent food (Served with free Red and White wine) with secure heated ski/boots lockers and has its own popular Bar  (open to the Public) with Entertainment Nightly.

However there are lots of Hotels around and not just for Crystal Ski as Inghams, Neilsons etc.. do similar packages to the same location or everything can be booked separately (Equipment hire and passes are priced reasonably).

We are going back to Sestriere again next year as it offers lots of skiing in the various resorts, and has some very good slopes for all types of skiiers. The Area pass gives access to all of the Milky way and also one Day in France (Mongenevre).

(See the above piste Map for the Milky way Area).

Sestriere is in the Middle of the Milky Way which offers 400km of slopes linked by lifts to other ski resorts including: Sauze d'Oulx, Sansicario, Claviere and Mongenevre in France, So for the Experienced, We can visit the other resorts with the Area passes.

Summary:


Any questions just give me a message on FaceBook or email me at markwalker29cdo@hotmail.com.

Mark Walker.
