Hampshire Social: January 2018 (Portsmouth) (39087)
If one of your New Year's resolutions is to get into the great outdoors, what better way than to get involved with OutdoorLads. And a great way to start is to join us at one of our socials.
All members of OutdoorLads and their like-minded friends will be made very welcome at January's Hampshire Social in Portsmouth.
Join us for a relaxed, friendly evening in The Isambard Kingdom Brunel, easily accessible from Portsmouth & Southsea railway station.
Portsmouth & Southsea is served by direct trains from Southampton, Fareham, Havant, Petersfield, Eastleigh, Fareham and Winchester.
Social events provide a support network for local members. They are an ideal way for existing members to catch up with each other and find out more about upcoming events.
They're also a great way to get to know more about OutdoorLads and our activiites if you're new to the group.
Food & Drink
For those wishing to get a bite to eat, the Isambard Kingdom Brunel serves reasonably-priced food you'd expect in a Wetherspoons pub. See the menu for details.
Some guys will eat, some won't, no pressure either way.
Meeting & Times
Never been to an OutdoorLads Event before?
If you have never been on an OutdoorLads event, this is great place to start.
A new member recently said after attending a social, "everyone was brilliant last night and made the effort to make me feel welcome, which I really appreciated."
You will find us a friendly and welcoming group, and if you look out for the leader of the event, he will introduce to other guys at the event - no need to hover at the bar trying to meet people!
There are usually leaders on hand from different disciplines, happy to chat about upcoming events.
Is this a regular event?
The Hampshire Social is a regular monthly event and we meet on the second Wednesday of the month. So come along and support us. We meet every other month in WInchester and in between we alternate between Southampton and Portsmouth.
There are social events taking place in many of our major cities from time to time.
Can I bring a friend?
Yes of course, especially those who might be interested in what we do. We are meeting in a public venue and it would be great to introduce others to OutdoorLads.
** Do I need to register? **
Yes, please, so we can look out for you, and it will add to your profile. If you forget to register you are still welcome to come along.
You won't get a 'black mark' for not showing up either, but please if you have registered let James know if you cannot attend last minute.
The Isambard Kingdom Brunel is just a few minutes walk from Porstmouth & Southsea railway station. Leave the station by the main exit and turn left under the railway line. Cross over the road at the bend continue under the buildings into the Guild Hall Square. Cross the Square and the pub is on far corner.
There are three car parks in nearby Alec Rose Lane that are run by Porstmouth City Council but charges operate 24 hours.
How will I find the group?
Look out for the leader who will have either an OutdoorLads T shirt, or a sign with our logo. A quick scan of the bar will find us - if not staff should know where we are.
If it is your first time why not message James beforehand and make arrangements to look out for each other.
