Northowram Pumas Running Club held their 2016 Christmas party at the Halifax Bierkeller on Friday 11th November. This was the Club’s 2nd visit to the Bierkeller as it is such a fun packed evening and the Arches, Dean Clough Mills is a great venue for a large group. There were 34 Pumas on the party list and this year everybody looked amazing in their fancy dress costumes including Bongossi trade dresses, Bavarian shorts and one very large sausage!
The Pumas met up at the Northowram Community Sports and Activity Club for a few drinks and some ‘before’ photos, before heading down to The Arches to meet the rest of the group at the bar. Steins were collected and beer goggles fitted before taking seats at two of the best tables available… right next to the dance floor.
The best Oompah band in Britain, The Amazing Bavarian Stompers provided the entertainment for the evening. This year with some assistance from Kirsty and Nicola:
Everyone had a brilliant evening dancing on chairs with steins in hand, linking arms and singing to traditional Bavarian drinking songs – I saw a mouse! where? there on the stair…
A disco with lots of energetic dancing followed the Oompah band, and we discovered that not only do we have some very talented runners among us, we also have some amazing dancers.
If you couldn’t make it to this year’s Bierkeller, don’t worry as I am sure that we will be doing it all again next year!
