BoardSilly Drinks Policy - Buy A Drink While Playing Games

New drinks policy for players while at BoardSilly Games Club:

"Buy a drink & have it in front of you while you're playing games at the pub."

Sorry to have to spell this out but the owners were in the pub last night & spotted the three players at one of the tables sitting with two empty glasses. They're paying the bills & it looked like we weren't doing our bit & buying drinks. They had a word with the barmaid and she had a word with one of us.

Even if you just buy a pint of orange squash & nurse it all evening, at least you've got a drink if anyone comes round checking what we're doing.

I know that people:

  • get involved with their games and don't think of leaving it to buy a drink.
  • don't want to drink a lot.
  • just want to buy their own drink, not buy a big round for everyone at the table.
  • don't want to miss what is going on in the game.

I understand all this and I am not looking to make anyone feel unwelcome to come to the games club.

We will:

  • accommodate comfort breaks to buy a drink & use the facilities.
  • wait patiently for people to return to the table.
  • give you a recap of what you missed while away from the games table.

What I don't want to do is annoy the owners of the pub where go every week. The club has tried using other pubs in the town as a venue but the Newbold Comyn Arms fits the bill better than most and have always welcomed us and treated us well. I don't want the hassle of finding another venue, and wherever we go will expect us to buy a drink while we're in playing games.

Cheers,

John E
