BeerFest 2017

By Dave Picken - July 3 2017
BeerFest 2017 The sun finally shone and as a result the Seventh West BeerFest was the biggest yet - despite other attractions in town. More than one thousand people attended during the Saturday - a tremendous reward for the hard work put in by many club members.

It was a day not without incident, with Nigel Bulmer off to hospital in the morning after suffering a nasty gash on his cheek as our Vets took part in the first RFU BeerFest Vets 7's tournament

Billingham ran out worthy winners beating Rovers in the final.

Later in the day the desperately unlucky Stu Waites made the same journey to North Tees after his shoulder once again popped out - this time while playing with Carl Miller's son Oscar. Stu returned wtith his arm in a sling and yet another appointment with a consultant.

The festivities were briefly interrupted after reports that a three year old boy was missing. The police arrived swiftly to carry out a search, but soon found him safe and sound and asleep in his pushchair in the main tent. All's well that ends well.

Elmo's Beer Bottle Draw raised almost £700 with West Girls' coach Joe Aird the winner.

His players helped sell the tickets and the team will also benefit from the proceeds plus fellow coach Jess Caswell drew the winning ticket! 

Before you say anything Elmo had the whole draw properly monitored. Well done all.
