With the hall set up ready for the off and our Artist for in early and set up in quickfire time, how many would come through the doors tonight, at start time it was time for me to bring on stage DANIEL BERRY and off he went with “All My X’s Live In Texas” which had the Dancers on the floor we then all met up with “Billy B Bad” who said he had a touch of the “Falsom Prison Blues” because he said he had been “Loving All Night”. It was way back in time for DANIEL as we all heard the old Hank Williams number “You Win Again” then he was on about his “Beautiful Body” from the Bellamy Brothers, then along came “Walk On By” with all in the hall joining in where they should have done, and it was “Chattaoochee” that was the final number of the spot.

During the break I managed to get the Local “WHATS on LIST” done, then time for a natter to some of the people in the hall, then back to being the compare to bring back DANIEL for the second time tonight and we all met up with the “Honky Tonk Man” at round about “Four In The Morning” and we were all “Tempted”. Once again tonight DANIEL went way back in time for another Hank Williams number this time “Lovesick Blues” staying in that era along came “Heartaches By The Number” and then it was onto the Kenny Rogers number “Ruby Don’t Take Your Love To Town”, DANIEL pushed the tempo right up as we all tried to help out “The Fireman” and he slowed things down with the Sam Outlaw number “Love Her For A While” which closed the spot.

CHRIS from the “GANG” makes his way to the stage, while PAM and SUE keep a check on the Prizes as we are all involved with the “RAFFLE DRAW” with this Done and Dusted just a short time to talk to some more of the people in the hall, before putting the Compare Hat and it was to let everyone know that we have managed to book KALIBRE to return to the LONE WOLF C.M.C. in August 2020, to which a loud cheer went round the hall. Then for the final time tonight to introduce to all DANIEL who told us all “Here Comes My Baby” then one he said he hates doing this being “Texas Time” as he has to wear his tight Underpants to hit the high notes, DANIEL moved onto one I had asked him to do, which was not Country but DANIEL is a Young Rocker and I am an Old Rocker he went on and sang “DONNA” the Marty Wilde hit, well there were no Boo’s just appluse think we may have got away with that one DANIEL, he then moved onto “Troubadour” up went the tempo for “Cherokee Boogie” on with “Pop A Top” and “Turn Me Loose” on with the Randy Travis number “On The Other Hand” moved onto “Rub It In” and it was “I Just Wanna Dance With You” that closed the show, but no it was clear that I would have to ask DANIEL for one more which he did with “Guitars, Cadillacs” which did close what for all who turned up had been a Brilliant night put on by DANIEL, with another side of DANIEL I had not seen before as he sang some really Old Country numbers and you could see looking at him throughout the evening he was enjoying it to, so thank for tonight DANIEL, and to all who turned from the “GANG” a big “THANK YOU” for supporting “YOUR CLUB”.

During the next break CHRIS comes down to the stage and helps me do the “RAFFLE DRAW” with PAM and SUE keeping watch on the Prize Table, this done time to have a natter with some of the people in the hall, and at 9-15 for the final time tonight I introduced to all KALIBRE who started with “All The Way With You” onto “the First Part Of Texas” on then to “Bye, Bye Love” the next number was “Chase Each Other Round The Room Tonight” this was for PETE and JOAN, then KALIBRE moved onto “Driving My Life Away” then we were all off to the “Trail Of Tears” BOBBY then said “Stop The World And Let Me Off” and it was “Gipsy Queen” that closed the show, but know as all in the hall were on their feet shouting for more so one more KALIBRE did which was “That’s The Way Love Goes” which was the final number of what had been a Superb night of LIVE COUNTRY MUSIC put on by BOB and BOBBY, on one side of the stage BOBBY who has a great Country voice and all night long you heard every word he sang, and on the other sider of the stage BOB I think all has been said about him by other people, but in my humble opinion he is the best Pedal Steel player on the Country Scene, overall BOBBY and BOB gave us all a Superb night, if you add to all that two numbers that for me were class the first as BOBBY sang “Old Pair Of Shoes” and when BOB played “Dark Island” both were Superb, thank you the 2/’s, and tonight I did something I did not think I would ever do as I have known KALIBRE for many years, and for me to introduce them to all in the Hall, made me a very happy man.

Robin who has been coming to the Club for a very long time and run Charity Nights wanted to say a few words, he wanted to thank “THE GANG” for taking over the Club to try and keep it running so to PAM, SUE,CHRIS and PHIL, there was a “BIG THANK YOU” for all the work we all put in at the Club, and as I said to all in the Hall it is “YOUR CLUB” all we do is a little as you have been putting your “BUMS on the SEATS” and that is what will keep the Club running. It was good to see PETE and JOAN who had their own Club at Medstead, RUTH and the ROFFEY crowd, SUE and MARTIN and their Friends and a couple from Aldershot. Not forgetting JAN and ROGER from the GOLDEN SPURS in Sussex.

Next show February 17th with DANIEL BERRY come and join us.

For the last show in 2018 we had an American Supper and the hall Decorated out for Christmas, and before we started I had to let everyone in the hall know that one of the "GANG" who was PAM TRIGGS had passed away but her last words were the show must go on and you will all have a good time, after which I had to bring on stage the award winning Duo JONNY and LYNNETTE, and once again not many notes taken as I was a bit busy, making sure everyone was happy making sure they all got something to eat and wearing some strange Outfits. to start the show JONNY and LYNNETTE were brought on stage by an ELF and as soon as they started the Dance Floor was full and stayed like that all night.

Again tonight there were other Club runners in from Colorado C.M.C. and the Golden Spurs C.M.C. and all enjoyed what they saw and heard.

During the first break all formed up to help there self to food.

Then it was time to bring back JONNY and LYNNETTE for their second spot in which we all heard "Dreaming My Dreams" and "Storms Never Last" for PAM STYLES who is a WAYLON fan and helps run the Club and also they "Mr Man In The Moon" for PAM who passed away as she loved this number, also FATHER CHRISTMAS dropped in for a while.

During the next break CHRIS helped me do the "RAFFLE DRAW" then for the final time tonight brought back JONNY and LYNNETTE and again they kept the floor full for the rest of the evening, and also Frosty the Snowman was seen in the hall and even was tempted to do a Partner Dance, all good fun, while all this was going on JONNY and LYNNETTE kept the Christmas Party mood going on. I can remember them doing "Thinking To Night Of My Blue Eyes" and at the end of the evening it was clear to see and hear that I would have to asked for one more and this turned out to be "Walk On By" with all in the hall joining in.

On a sad night. JONNY and LYNNETTE put on a Brilliant night of LIVE COUNTRY MUSIC for all of the 97 people who came through the doors.

From the "GANG" to all who have supported the LONE WOLF C.M.C. through November and December "THANK YOU VERY MUCH" hope to see you all in the NEW YEAR.
