It was great to see so many of you at the Christmas/ 10th Anniversary celebration on Monday. In the end 29 people turned up. That's not quite the record (which is 33) but it's in second place. I was pleased that we had a significant number of the original members, including James O., who came up with the name "Broken Drummers" and who travelled a long way to be there. We also had three new people: Philip, who we recruited at Hogswatch, and Tara and Charlotte who we had not met before but turned out to be veteran Feegle impersonators. Plus, of course, loads more people who have joined over the course of the last 10 years.
I did a quiz on Christmas songs, which Tim W. and Ruth won. Tim has agreed to do a quiz for next time as he says it will be good for him. How or why I'm not sure but keep it in mind when we do the quiz. Tim W. then kindly made a speech, which was a relief as I was flagging after shouting the quiz answers at 29 of you whilst trying to keep Bill quiet!
Tim observed that I have been running Drummers for most of its 10 year history. I've had a great time doing that. Coming to Drummers was a huge turning point in my life. I even met my husband at a Drummers meeting. Therefore I'll repeat what I said Monday night. I didn't found Drummers, I started coming in March 2005 and took over running it in August 2006. The person who got the whole thing up and running in the latter half of 2004 was Jack. Since he wasn't there Monday I'll say a big thanks to Jack now. Thank you also to the rest of you for coming along and making Drummers what it is (whatever that may be).
