The Oxford Monopoly Pub Challenge Event - 2010
The 2010 Event took place on Saturday 19th June 2010. We meet at the Holiday Inn on the Peartree roundabout at around 10:15 am. Nice sunny morning. Bit of a waste coming here though, no beer and had to wait for coffee to cool down, before we could drink it and get on our way to the first real pub at Wolvercote. May change this pub next year, don’t know where to yet.
There was about 12 or 13 of us that started and we all finished, just..Must cut down on the (strong) real ale next year.
The route was almost the same as last year, with just a couple of pub changes.
