Minimum Age

I'm a Reading university undergraduate. Do you have an minimum age, as I'm 20 and was considering coming along this September

We've never really considered the need for a minimum age, as let's face it, most of us are no spring chickens (JOKING!). I would certainly not want to have to deal with anyone under 18 turning up (although I did once see a babe in arms at the Wokingham munch), but I would have thought that 20 is fine.

Drop me a line to the email address above if you want to be added to the mailing list.

Young Things?

A comment on the last post wonders:
Even though I am a less-than-decrepit 60 year old I would not want to be the only oldie in the group.
Is it all young things attending?

Now I am trying to think - the age range is probably from mid-twenties to fifties, but obviously I wouldn't dream of putting names to ages, for fear of offending anyone! We are quite a mixed crowd, but I'd like to think we're all tolerant enough to avoid any accusation of ageism.

Free pint for the oldest person to turn up...

August Munch Announcement

The next Reading Munch will take place next Tuesday, 16th August, from around 7.30pm, at The Outlook in Reading. We hope to be in the non-smoking area to the right of the door, unless some disaster forces us to park elsewhere.

Directions and Parking
The link includes a map showing that the pub is on the Kings Road, on the town centre side of the bridge. On the other side of the bridge you will find the Queens Road car park, accessible from the A329. You can also park right outside the pub if you are lucky.

Dress Code and Behaviour
Since they would not allow us to book, the pub is not currently aware of our meeting or our inclinations, so please dress in street clothes and be discreet.

Locating us
We plan to sit at the front of the pub, round the corner to your right as you come in through the door. This is the non-smoking section, however a satellite smoking group formed itself last month, and allowed for further mingling.

Look for the colourful kitty - that's us. There may also be a Bapuss in evidence; you see, we're all just softies.

Please let me know if you are nervous and would like someone to meet you outside and introduce you around.
