There is a short summary here.
Langstone Cutters launched the new Gig Club yesterday, we needed to rename our two first gigs. The name of one, Waterwitch, was retained by the original owners, Charlestown Gig Club, and we wanted to rename the other, Porthminster, to something more suitable. The names we chose are Spirit of Langstone and Heart of Hayling. Very nice.
I assumed the local vicar would do us a nice short prayer and water them with his hissop branch, but no, the AmDram types in the club wanted to do the full works and as one of them was prepared to donate the champagne I wasn't going to stand in their way.
That's Neptune with his trident on the balcony and the rest of the committee dressed in togas, tossing champers around like there's no recession.
It was very ridiculous and fantastic fun. The sun shone brightly for the first time in weeks and it was a great start to 2013.
Lots more pictures on YouTube.
