Social Evening at MK Lightning Ice Hockey

For the third year running we are organising a Redway Runner Social evening to watch the Milton Keynes Lightning ice hockey team.  The match is on Saturday 21 January 2017 versus the Guildford Flames.  The game starts at 7pm at the ice rink just behind “Argos” and “Toys R Us” near MK Central Station. MK Lightning are having an excellent season, being 2nd in the league at the time of writing.  Let’s see if we can beat the 135 who attended last year!   
 
We have managed to get an excellent discount on ticket prices.  Adults will cost £10 (instead of the normal £15) and children under 16 years of age will be charged at £5 (instead of the normal £8.00).  Those who have never been to ice hockey before are in for an evening of a fast paced, hard hitting game with the odd fight here and there!  The game will be over at about 9.15pm.  There is a splendid bar and good food and beverage facilities.  We will all be seated in a block together which will add to the fun. 
 
To book your seats please can you let Kevin Orchard (kevorchard@yahoo.com) know how many tickets you would like?  Bank transfers to Redway Runners account:
  • Sort code 301553
  • Number 42390360
  • Name; Redway Runners
(reference “ice hockey” please)

or a cheque (payable to 'Redway Runners') to Martin will secure your seats. Absolute closing date will be Wednesday 18 January at 5pm.

If anybody fancies it, we can skate for free after the game until 11pm, you just need to pay for skate hire on the night at £2.50 each.  For those not up for a bit of skating we will move over to Wetherspoons at 171 Midsummer Boulevard for a drink or two after the game.

London Marathon 2017 coach

Redway Runners will be organising a coach for both Runners and Supporters again this year. It will be the same format as the past years.
To book your place pay £12 for the return trip in to the club account (detail below) and message Martin (rr@redwayrunners.com) and James Down (jamesdown1986@me.com)
