We recently went with a Meetup to their new show Angry White Men: Trump up the Volume, which was very different from their normal improv offering and pretty good!


Our Sailing has kicked off and all the details are on our events page:


Some of our lady members get together for a drink every second Monday of each month in the lounge bar of the IBIS hotel, the one next to Centraal Station, at 7pm. They have a glass (or two) of wine or a coffee and chat about what is going on in their  lives and the world in general.  They  are a (still quite small) group of ladies that have passed the first flush of youth so have plenty of experience of life to talk about. They would be happy if some other ladies would like to join.


By the time this is published the Euro 2016 will be well underway and I would like to wish all of our competing teams, England, Northern Ireland and Wales the best of luck for the tournament.


I have a couple of bob on England to reach the Semis!
