For a BOC meeting Robert... HIDE THE SCOTCH (or anything decent)... and buy loads of any old cheap suds. You know what BOC parties are like! cheers beercheers scuseme butt dancinfools bottles


Oh that I was back in the dear old PBI.
With no more Triplanes on me tail, nor tracer tracing by.
And no more flames and clickerty-clack and no more blooming sky,
And only a couple of feet to fall whenever I want to die.

Good point Dezh, I forgot that the word "restraint" is not part of the BWOC vocabulary. Particularly at festive events!! thumbsup

If somehow I was able to merge RAF_Louvert's WWI library with my Single Malt Scotch collection we would have a fabulous library to relax and research in. What a place it would make for a BWOC meeting! biggrin

To let everyone know, a member of the BWOC who shall remain anonymous sent me a spare pin they happened to have! It is a very attractive pin, and I shall place it somewhere that will force questions, and then I will have to explain everything (and perhaps gain some more barmy converts to WOFF:UE wink )

In honor of this member's generosity, I donated $10 (ha ha, USD of course the RESERVE CURRENCY OF THE WORLD (lol)) to the WOFF:UE / WOTR cause.

Cheers to a fine group of folks!

cheers

Regards,

Jeff

I see we've indoctrinated and properly abused --- err ---- initiated another new member to our flock. Glad to have you aboard Jeff, and as I was late to the party and it is still morning you can set me up with three fingers of Tullamore Dew and a nice hot cuppa tea after which you can hand me the cricket bat and I shall welcome you properly. Long live the Barmy OFFers, BWOC BWOC BWOC!

Oh that I should be so worthy to be called "captain". But I shall assume the mantle with as much humility as I can muster, (given the aforementioned three fingers of Tullamore Dew), and strive to carry us forward with great barmy and the highest bwocyness.

I know it's a heavy burden Lou but let the spirit of the Tullamore lighten your load and life doesn't seem so bad.

mmmmmm, Guinness Extra Stout. Just the right serving size too and with the perfect amount of froth.

By the way, for any BOC members interested, I still have a few club pins available at the price of $3.50 each plus shipping.

My fellow BOC comrades, we've a new member to welcome to our little slice of insanity. Thanks to a recent attentiveness of our Robert_Wiggins we can now claim Fullofit to be "one of us", (one-of-us one-of-us one-of-us). Join me in the club bar where we shall run up the tab of our newest BOC brother and introduce him not only to our time-honoured traditions but also to one of our most hallowed relics - the cricket bat. "Fetch the bat!"

Welcome aboard Fullofit, glad to have you as one of the daft, the touched, the barmy. BWOC BWOC BWOC!

Lou

What?! Fullofit was not already a member? An outrage! The man is Barmy through and through. I’ll have whatever is left please! Welcome Fullofit!

Mark, I was shocked as well. I'm blaming the oversight on sunspots. Now then, to the drinks, I'm still working on my morning coffee so I believe several fingers of Tullamore Dew should compliment that nicely. Barkeep!

What about the paddle?
Or has another old tradition gone by the wayside in these modern times?

Duke, it's a cricket bat, not a paddle, we've had this discussion before though given the levels of inebriation at the time it's no surprise it's been forgotten. Allow me to reacquaint you with said bat - repeatedly.

Thank you Gentlemen for a warm welcome. Drinks are on me (c’mon stop spilling) and go easy on the cricket bat. It looks like it’s seen better days.

Hard useage. Robert Wiggins has a thing for the bat. Weird...

Duke, you are correct about Robert having a thing for the bat, but then who are we to judth ... judth ... i think the Tullamore Dew is kicking in.

Fullofit, the bat has yet to see its better days if this BOC president has anything to say about it. Those dents and scrapes and taped repairs are badges of honour each and every one as they speak to our rich tradition and ceremony, the latter of which I shall now elaborate on for those unfamiliar:

Each new initiate will place themselves upside down upon the wooden school chair, perched atop a precarious pile of furniture in the Mess, with the soot-encrusted soles of their flying boots pressed firmly against the ceiling. Vice President Dej, or in his stead Robert, (or for that matter any other senior member who wishes), shall then give each initiate three whacks with the cricket bat, following which the initiate shall recite the words, "Oooh Matron! Is that a dodo in my trousers?", in an octave higher than his normal speaking voice. Upon descending from the perch each new member shall then be given a glass of Warsteiner which they will raise in salute to our assembly, saying "Per dementia ad astra!", at which we shall all down our drink in one.

Good times ... good, good times.

Thanks for the description of the ceremony, Lou. But, now I’m nervous. I always forget which way is up. Or was it vertical vs. horizontal ... or was it left from right? Now I’m confused.
