Every year in early December The Grenville Club holds its annual Turkey Pool event at which members can win their Christmas Turkey or some whisky and wine to help the season’s celebrations.
It officially starts at 8pm and continues until no-one wants to enter another pool (usually into the early hours). You do not need to be there at the start either so you can pop in for an hour a bit later on if that is what suits you.
A free buffet is provided.
Each pool has a voucher or bottle of whisky for the winner and a bottle of wine for the runner-up.
Anyone is capable of winning a pool because there is a lot of luck involved as well as some skill.
Every time you win a pool, you lose another of your 3 lives before you start of the next pool, so the prizes do get pretty well spread around.
Above all, it is a fun night and all the better for a really good turn out.
This year’s Turkey Pool will take place on Friday 11 December.
