The Sidhil Fun Casino - NAEP 2011

The Sidhil Tuesday night out is now infamous amongst the delegates and staff at the annual NAEP conference in Blackpool. Having set a president due to recent years being so successful, (in 2009 we had the Magical Mystery Tour and in 2010 we had the Sidhil Comedy Club), It is always a challenge to keep the evening fresh and imaginative!

The evening got off to a brilliant start when the coach which had been arranged to take us to the venue didn’t arrive, so we had 73 people hanging around in the entrance of the Norbreck castle Hotel (desperate to get out of the place!!) After a bit of investigation work and several hundred phone calls we found the bus...parked at the rear entrance of the hotel!!! Crisis averted!! We got everyone on the bus!!

The venue we chose this year was the Imperial Hotel in Blackpool, a fantastic hotel situated on the sea front..The guests were treated to a three course meal, during which the speaker for the evening (Mr Ibbotson) got the room going with his party tricks, his bingo calling skills are the envy of the industry!! Prizes were flowing and by this time so was the alcohol!!

The Casino tables and croupiers were ready and waiting for our guests and the fun commenced, we had two Black Jack and two Roulette Tables and with a fantastic prize up for grabs our guests took full advantage!! Well done to Joanne King for winning a weekend away for two!!!
Thanks to everyone that attended the night, we can now start planning the next one!!!!

Thank you to all of the people who helped make the evening such a success:

The Imperial Hotel – Blackpool - Vivien Morrison - Event Manager

Casino Casino Casino Ltd - Blackpool - Phil Raw

Roll on next year, watch out for Sidhil at the top of the tower!!
