I have spoken to Steen about this and he rightly says that because of the lack of response regarding non-walking events he can see no reason to change things. I personally feel that sporting and social events should be under separate topics.
The ball then is in our court. If anyone hears of an event - such as the recent superb OktoberFest or the upcoming musical at the Lagoa theatre - can they not please use this heading to publicise them. If restaurants and bars have special evenings with jazz, fado etc. can they not use this site to publicise them?
If charities want more support for their events can they not advertise them on here ? Do they not want to maximise their funds ?
If social organisations such as Rotary, Masons, AFPOP, Lions, chess, investment, pottery, woodworking, wine appreciation, dining clubs, etc. want people to know of their existence why do they not use this medium ? Do they not want new members ?
At the very least make people aware that the Camara produce monthly booklets indicating what events they are producing or sponsoring.
Come on folks lets know about these things rather than spending winter evenings staring at the TV screen or computer terminal. Tell your favourite restaurant or bar about the free publicity available for events - athough I guess payment would come into it if menus start appearing
Well, I guess the Ramblers are more Social than sporting these days......anyway, to get the ball rolling, there's an APAA Dinner & Magic Show at The Holiday Inn in Pera on Saturday 19 November. Once full details are out, I'll post them here!sporting and social events should be under separate topics.
There's also the Algarve Hash House Harriers ( the drinking club with a running problem).....though it's mainly a walking problem these days.....meets every Sunday at 2pm ( in the winter, Monday at 6pm in the summer ) at a location in the Algarve. Anyone interested, please ask or PM me.
This year the money raised is for the ‘Bombeiros’ of Lagoa and also the the ‘Sea Life Savers’ who have all done a fantastic job this year.
If forumers know of restaurants for example who have regular fado/music nights either let us know or ask them to let us know direct.
