The 2009 Monopoly Pub Challenge Event

The 2009 event began at around 10:15 at the Holiday Inn on Saturday 5th September 2009. It was a nice sunny day, much the same as the day the original picture was taken back on the 13th April.

Thanks to Bob for the time keeping, watch that fire extinguisher and Simon and Tim the official photographers.
