Robot Club

Updated 29th December 2018



Note from the Secretary - December 2018 

Well this time last year the Robots hadn't even been publicised in any way. Hopefully you will feel the Club has got off to a good start - due entirely to all us members for supporting it and coming along to meetings. I can only speak for myself but I think we have had some great outings already, and I thought the Christmas lunch at the Talaton was really excellent for the good company and the good food.

Now the Turkey has been stripped off the bone it seems a good time to remind us all (and especially Rick!!!) that there is a Robots Lunch booked in the Talaton for 12 noon on Tuesday 29th January. What is on our agenda that day will be up to you so please let me have your suggestions in due course which I'll pass on to Phil and the committee. Thinking about outings for 2019 is likely to be discussed and what is arranged will be down to you - our members. Just to whet your appetite, some of the ideas already aired include a day of limited overs cricket at Taunton; an evening at the Somerset Rebels speedway; another day's horseracing; and a day out to Castle Coombe for motor racing. We don't just have to be a sports club though. For instance there are ideas like researching the old thoroughfare beside the  Moor; decorating the Hall foyer; and a Bonfire night not to mention Village day, Otter brewery, Beer caves, another walk etc. etc. etc.



 First (Hopefully, of many !) Christmas Meal  Dec 18th 2018


















 A Day at the Races - December 7th 2018


For those, like you, who couldn’t come I hope I am reflecting everyone else's opinion when I say we had a really nice day out. The reduced admission for club members (only £5 each!) meant we all had plenty of money for good food and a couple of beers up there. We all had a bet - some more successfully than others. Next time I am just going to back whatever Dusty is on! We were lucky with the weather too - more bright sunshine than the occasional shower.













How Betting Works !


You choose a horse. Then you visit a bookmaker and give him some money. In return he gives you a ticket with an alluring statement of how much money you are about to win. Then the race is run. THEN this is what you do with your ticket from the nice demonstrated by Nigel.    

 Unless you happen to be Dusty of course in which case you go and collect your winnings!
