It’s not all dancing. All year round, but particularly during the winter months, we have a variety of other reasons to gather:
- The Guildford Twelfth Night Mummers Play, each 6th January.
- Traditional games such as:
- Horseshoes (our way)Horseshoes (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horseshoes);
- Conkers Conkers (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conkers);
- Aunt Sally Aunt Sally (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aunt_Sally);
- Pub games (we typically play against other local Morris sides at a convenient pub), including Cribbage (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cribbage), Darts (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Darts), Shove-ha’penny (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shove_ha%27penny), Devil-among-the-tailors (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Devil_among_the_tailors), Fives-and-threes (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muggins_(domino_game));
- Ceilidhs. You might know them as barn dances, but whatever they’re called it’s great fun. There’s a good one locally at the Godalming Borough Hall (www.gbhceilidhs.org.uk).
- Eating and drinking, such as dinner at a restaurant. If our practice hall is unavailable (during school holidays) then we usually book a large table at a local eatery.
