At this year's Christmas meal, there will be a competition! 

Based on the sporadic attendance of some of you - I would like your real or imaginary excuses for yours or another's lack of attendance. For example a real excuse we have heard from Sean was his inability to run for 3 weeks following getting a tattoo. 

Please send your responses to me starting ... DEAR DAVE,  ... be as creative as you like on the form below.

The best one will be subject to a vote on the evening with prizes up for grabs ... To get your creative side going and send me your dear Dave's

Name *
Start your excuse with Dear Dave
