He’s getting married this summer y’know. Yes, I think she was pished when she said “yes”. Anyway, there’s no doubt he’s doing much better out of the new partnership than she is. But she’s awesome for sure.
Sadly, he’s not having a stag do.
But we can give him a STW Stag-do can’t we? So, you’re one of the organisers. What are we doing with hiI’m?
We have to sort location & accommodation and then we’ve got to fill Friday Evening, Saturday Day/Evening, Sunday Morning.
What’s everybody got? 🙂Posted 9 months agohammeriteMember
A tour of a craft brewery where you are told what beer should taste like, and what you should like in a beer. Then we can all talk about what a load of condescending b0ll0cks it was.
Accommodation for the Saturday night… A bench at a London train station after missing the last train home*
*Both of these things happened to me this last weekend on a stag do. I thought that trains ran through the night to get home!Posted 9 months agomikewsmithSubscriber

Everyone attending follows the proper ‘fetch’ protocol for the Pork Pie Club of Great Britain bringing the best pie and relish from their respective towns and this forms the first evening’s meal and entertainment.
Here are the rules:
The serious business then begins:-
The pies are eaten in relative quiet. Comments that may influence others in the subsequent marking are frowned upon, but this isn’t a game of poker and many an expression may give away private thoughts. A more obvious clue as to how things are going is the condiments box, which contains a wide range of sauces, pickles and mustards. If no one reaches for any of them, the pie must be at least quite good.
The amount of sauce used and the type, also gives a good indication of how the tasting is going. HP sauce is a regular favourite to help provide a little more taste, but should members reach for a Chinese Oyster sauce, Soya sauce or Worcester sauce, things are not looking good, and should anyone reach for Tabasco Chilli sauce then the pie is likely to be considered a disaster.
Once the pies have been eaten, the members write down their mark on a card, without conferring. The person sitting to the left of the pie fetcher for the day begins. He explains what he thinks of the pie in often graphic and amusing detail, and ends by turning over his marking card. Each person then talks, and then the fetcher has his say last. Interruptions to each member’s address are not allowed, nor is leaving the table.
Of course the fetcher is usually a little biased in his marking and he is allowed some latitude which has become known as ‘fetcher’s privilege’. However, the fetcher must be careful not to abuse this and award more than 2 marks above the average. Should he do so, he is denounced loudly as being a bad sportsman and worse.
The scribe diligently takes notes in the minute book, and records the marks of each member. An average of the marks is then calculated. The fetcher is then asked where the pies came from, and this is recorded along with the price. A new source of pies merits a gold star against the name of the fetcher for the day. The names of the members are inscribed on the box and this ensures that pies are fetched in rotation.
The losing fetcher has to give Binners a piggy back for the rest of the weekend.Posted 9 months agobinnersSubscriber
I still can’t believe she’s going through with it. Who said the drugs don’t work eh? 😀
Some great suggestions so far. I feel a two week long STW stag tour coming on!
We’re starting at the Hawkshead brewery for the weekend South lakes Jennride tomorrow night (which I won’t actually be riding as I’d be 100% guaranteed to spanner myself in the process). Should hopefully see a few of you therePosted 9 months ago
