So I have already kicked off by inviting you to the HAC open day where a combination of pyrotechnics, helicopters, beer and grilled meat will be the order of the day. What other events can we use as an excuse to meet up and get trolleyed? Oxford vs Cambridge Boat Race, 3rd April I will be perched up in a nice pub somewhere on the River. Obviously the Army vs Navy Rugby at Twickenham on May 1st No explanation necessary. The only excuse you have for not being there is that you are on ops or you are dead. FA Cup Final, 15th May Nice pub with a big screen, regardless of who's playing. Polo in the park, 4th - 6th June If you've never been to the Polo before you are missing out. Blokes falling off horses and smashing eachother up with mallets and more posh fanny and Champagne than you can shake a stick at. Brickwoods Field Gun at Collingwood which is usually in June Another good day out with a decent beer tent. Henley Regatta, 30th June - 4th July Basically a week of getting pissed next to a river. Goodwood Festival of Speed, 2nd - 4th July Vrroooooooom! Farnborough Air Show, 19th - 25th July For the WAFUs and plane spotters. Cartier International Polo, 25th July See above. London Great British Beer Festival, 3rd - 7th August It's a beer festival therefore I will be there. Notting Hill Carnival, 29th - 30th August Another excuse to get pissed. Watch out for pickpockets though as it's full of them. Goodwood Revival, 17th - 19th September Vrrrooooooom! This time in tweed. Lord Mayor's Show, 13th November Fireworks on the Thames and pub before Remembrance Sunday the next day. Anymore for anymore?
