Welcome to SSAGO Goes to Spoons!

What? SSAGO Goes to Spoons is a nationwide social event where SSAGO...goes to Spoons! But here's the catch, you don't get to decide what you want to eat or drink...somebody else does! Using the Wetherspoons app and the SSAGO website, you select items for a pre determined SSAGO member who is somewhere across the UK. Then in return you get something back, which somebody else has chosen for you! Share your food and drink on Facebook, have a jolly good time and eat lots of peas!

When? Thursday 5th March 2020, 7pm

Where? A Wetherspoons pub anywhere in the country!

Who? SSAGO members - but who sends you food or drink? Nobody knows!

Cost? However much you'd like to spend on your new friend (we suggest up to £7). You can also buy a badge for £2!

How? Head to your selected Wetherspoons and update your table number on the Secret Santa page (which will appear on this website closer to the day). Download the Wetherspoon App and select the pub where your friend is at. Enter their table number which you should also see on the Secret Santa page once they've arrived. Order them what they wanted (or something fun!). Meanwhile patiently wait for your food or drink and send clues to each other to work out who ordered what!


**Badge Update 08/04/2020** Thanks to everybody for buying badges, it was great to see they were so popular! The badges were meant to delivered to me in time for Ball, so that I could give out the vast majority to club representatives to take back with them and hand out after Easter. Obviously this would not be suitable for everybody however it would at least save me a lot of posting. As we all know Ball didn't happen, and subsequently most students were sent home as well and are no longer near clubs. Now as much as I love you guys I don't plan on posting out almost 200 individual badges to everybody. So unfortunately I will be holding on to the badges until Survival Rally where I will give out the vast majority to club representatives to give out in September. Even if you are not going to Survival Rally yourself, if you're still at university your badge will be given to somebody who can give it to you in September. Now I know that some of you will be graduating, some of you are Indie, some of you are in Ireland - please don't panic. I will send an email in August and anybody who can't receive the badge from a club Rep can let me know and we can arrange an alternative. I hope this is okay, any questions drop me a message.

Booking closes at 5pm Tuesday 3rd March!

Booking Information

To take part you will need to know two things: which Wetherspoons pub you will be at and whether you want to eat or drink. Make sure your Wetherspoons is available to select whilst booking, and if it isn't then let us know and we can make it available. If you have any dietary requirements make sure they are correct on the membership system and be sure to select the special options in the booking phase.

Happy Staff = Happy SSAGO

Everybody wants to have a good time and we don't want to cause any nuisance to the hard working staff. Every Wetherspoons is different: some will love what we're doing, some will go along with it and some might not be too happy. A lot of the time the staff get confused when they bring items to your table and you don't know what you're expecting. Politey explaining to the staff about what's going on might get them to understand. We have had cases where they have refused to take more app orders - to prevent this: be nice to them and try not to order too much silly stuff that wastes their time. 

Think Waste

If you’ve played before you may have received a bowl of peas or other similar funny item, after all it’s part of the fun! What is sad is that sometimes food that is bought as a joke doesn’t get eaten, leaving a lot of wasted food behind. Not everybody is privileged enough to be able to afford to waste food so please don't be too silly. On the event shop you can find the option to donate £1 to the Trussel Trust Food Bank charity which help to combat food poverty in the UK. Also bring a Tuperware if you want to save any left overs and freeze them or have them for breakfast the next day!
