Moower Stag Minutes #5
Black Bull, Friargate (
Seens (aka. BM Senior)
Dutt (aka BM Junior)
PXB (aka part-time secretary)
Steve Tiley – something about going to see a cigar smoking despot.
Phil Mountain – Seens questioned whether he’d been taken to see Mohammed (peace be upon him), but he’d Gone to see G4 - surely he should be apologising to his ears, not us
All present at – at last, the message about punctuality has finally got through.
It was reported that Mrs Dutt is now OK.
Much discussion about dates ensued – with an impressive matrix of dates vs. names tabled.
5tth 6th August was the Clear Favourite.
However, this clashes with a number of events :-
The “Provisional” Hen Do (provisional in the sense that the “Suitability of the Bride” has still to be resolved**)
BM Juniors Birthday – As previously minuted, Dutt agreed to buy beers all evening on his birthday.
Despite the above, the Committee reversed tradition & actually made a real decision – The Stag Event will be the weekend commencing the 5th August.
A number of possible locations were discussed
Hawkshead – Farmers field near Outgate was suggested – complete with DIY Beer Pump (as per Steve Hunt Stag ??)
Me – near
Ashby de la Zouch – Nice name, Possibly a KP Crisp museum, but that’s it.
An “interesting” chat a about WAP/GPRS data metering schemes interrupted proceedings at this point & the Venue thread was temporarily lost.
Themes were reviewed again after the last meetings disappointing down-select from 4 to 10 themes.
After a very short debate (so short that I didn’t minute it !) Schoolgirls emerged as the chosen theme & costing/planning proceeded at pace.
- Following from last meetings action, JC found a price of £3.50 for straw boaters on eBay.
- Each “schoolgirl” will be asked to bring their own White Shirt.
- Ties – Shool Outfitters may be a source – but it probably wouldn’t look right. Action All : investigate bulk tie suppliers & prices (Tradex etc ?)
- False Breasts – essential requirement – possible source - Fancy Dress Hire Shops -
- Somebody even suggested G-strings (It’s making me feel ill)
- Action ADS – Investigate Material for Skirts, -Stockings,
Various Hair Colour were mentioned for the “Pigtails” – BM Blonde, Stag – Ginner, Rest – Brunette – the eventual conclusion was that Blonde would be best for all
Somebody said that the Britney Spears look was good – Action All : Investigate
Other ideas to be considered :-
Using the aformentioned matrix, Moower counted the number of potential Schoolies as 20 +/-2. Although it was suggested that all should confirm their intention to wear costume ASAP.
A target budget of £10 per person was set for the entire costume.
Ilkley was forwarded as a potential venue, the author questioned whether Hats would be allowed there. A spokesperson for the Yorkshire Foreign Office said that the Hat exclusion zone was restricted to “ont’ top o’t Moor” in accordance with the Yawksha National Anthem.
The suitability of the bride was assessed, in absentia, by open questioning of the Stag.
Q.Does she have the tea ready every night ?
A. No – although this is perhaps no longer relevant in the 21st Century – Seens - mentioned that, in fact, he wears the skirt their household & has the Tea ready for Nic when she arrives home.
In mitigation, the Stag did say that Miss Lee is Custodian of the Magic Laundry Basket – a fact that virtually assures suitability.
The meeting was called to Order once again …….
With the Weekend & Theme now resolved – all that remained wass the Venue to decide & that this should be the focus of our efforts.
A set of criteria were established to facilitate selection :-
Population – M/F Ratio 40/60
Club – No Violence, Free Entrance (counts as Double Points for a Yorkshireman)
Curry – Only needs to be open on Friday
Suitable Accomodation/ Comfortable Bus Station
Investigate the following Locations
It was suggested that when contacting Tourist Information/Accomodation that we say that we are on a school re-union rather than a cross dressing Stag Weekend.
Seens politely requested that the Minutes be made available the Next Day, The secretary politely replied.
Meeting Closed at 2240
DONM – Black Bull, Friargate, 8pm Friday 15th June
