Old Buoys Lunch

Wednesday October 31st
12.00pm to 4.00pm

If tales of surviving 40 foot waves in a rubber dinghy, discovering pirate treasure maps or bewitching mermaids emerging from the depths is your thing, then come along to an Old Buoys Lunch at the Lake Yard Clubhouse & Restaurant in Hamworthy, Poole.

Lake Yard Old Buoys Lunch - Last Wednesday of Every month

Held on the last Wednesday of every month for all ex-workers of the Lake Yard Shipyard, The Old Buoys Lunch is a chance to catch up with old colleagues and reminisce about bights, binnacles and baggywrinkles. The next instalment will be held on Wednesday October 1st.

The Old Buoys Lunch is from 12 noon until 4pm but usually carries on in the bar with some hearty choruses of ‘Blow The Man Down’, knot tying competitions and rum-fuelled re-enactments of The Life of Pi.

The Lake Yard Quiz Night Returns

Tuesday 30th October
From 7.oopm

After a summer break, the much adored Lake Yard Quiz Night returns for its autumn & winter season on Tuesday October 30th from 7pm. Taking place on the last Tuesday of every month, the Quiz Night has a reputation for bringing out hitherto hidden traits of competitiveness amongst the normally genial Lake Yard crowd. It’s not so much the fabulous prizes on offer as the opportunity to walk around Lake Yard like you could give Professor Brian Cox a run for his money (should he ever dare to take you on). You might not have the biggest boat in the marina but if you win this prestigious event, for the next month the crowd will silently part at the bar as you walk into the Clubhouse (and not just because you’ve been at sea for four days).

Tickets are £8.50 each and include a tasty supper to keep the brain cells energised.

Call 01202 676953 or email for more details.
