If you want to have fun in Freemasonry, please read the following three accounts of the same event !
I have just returned from a fantastic morning out with a number of brethren having taken part in the inaugural walking football training session organised by Steve Hiles
The reason I have felt compelled to send this email is that I cannot remember when I last had so much fun and I am only sorry that more of you could not have joined us.
The session started at 10am with a quick briefing on the rules from Andy a Middlesex coach - no running, barging, or kicking the ball over head height.
We were then divided into two teams and provided with team bibs and played two halves of 15mins each way.
Robert Paulden, who is known to most of you, reports -
“What a great morning. It was the funniest thing I have done in masonry for a long time.
I only went to photograph the event but was soon getting involved and thoroughly enjoyed joining in, even though I have several health issues.
I just slowed down near the middle second half, which made no difference to everyone's enjoyment of the game.
I even scored a goal - the second I have ever scored ! - the first was at secondary school, I hope I don’t have to wait as long for my third goal !
I thoroughly enjoyed myself - come along and get involved.
It’s a good work out whether you play for 5mins, or the full match”
Scott Lowson, equally as infamous, reports -
“Paul you should have been sent off 14 times for running.
Pradip grabbed my shirt 4 times, Stephen stood on my foot 3 times - so you are all disqualified !
It was one of the funniest events I have ever attended”
After the game we met in the café, had a sausage roll and a cup of tea and left about 11.30.
I feel great and ready to face the weekend chores.
I know everyone who took part had a good time and is looking forward to meeting up again, same place, same time in two weeks (1st July).
Why don't you come and join us, I promise you won't regret it!
If you are interested please contact Steve, or any of the MMSA committee, or just turn up.
Family and friends are welcome.
