September meeting (and August report)

We had a very enjoyable excursion to Midhurst on 15th August, and although it was a Wednesday night, Khan's Brasserie seemed just about full when we arrived. Maybe it's because, just for a change, it wasn't raining. The management put on some specials (home cooking rather than regular menu items) including a chicken bhuna on the bone, a lamb dupiaza made with lamb chops, and a tasty lamb and pumpkin dish. We also enjoyed a king prawn balti, chana dhal, and a selection of side dishes. The starters were also very tasty, and the lime pickle was an absolute knock-out. Because so many people were driving independently, the drinks bill was quite low for a change, but it was a good evening, and we enjoyed the food and the welcome.

For September, we've decided to go for one of our favourite places, Chilli Night in Haslemere. This will be during the Rugby World Cup, but if you really want to see Japan v Fiji (17:00 BST) and Italy v Romania (19:00 BST) then that's your choice. If not, please rendezvous as usual at the excellent Inn on the Hill at about 19:30. An e-mail to the webmaster will help plan numbers.

Planning numbers is also important for the October meeting. On Wednesday 10th, we'd plan to go back to the Gurkha Durbar in Grayshott. Booking will be essential, and I'd like early indications please if you expect to make it. Hopefully England will still be in the World Cup at that point, so it will give us a chance to speculate about their prospects for the semi finals and beyond. Let's hope!
