Medway 41 Club Cluster

A very enjoyable “cluster evening” was held at The Hastings Arms, Gillingham, where upwards of 30 members from various clubs in Region 25 were hosted by Medway 41 Club.

It was a true evening of fun and fellowship, with the banter and buzz of conversation continuing throughout the evening. The food was superb, with more than ample portions; so much so that I could not manage any desert!

The guest speaker was David Hatcher, an ex-Chief Superintendent and ex-Crime Watch presenter. He was excellent, keeping us all quiet for the best part of an hour as he recounted on his recent work as a voluntary aid worker in Haiti after the earthquake. I am sure he could have talked for longer, but unfortunately time was against us.

Off now to practice my darts for my next visit later this week

Active Black Country 41 Club

I have been very busy in the preparation stage since becoming elected National Vice President of 41 Club and have attended various committee meetings, meetings with some of the Round Table Executive as well as attending all of my own clubs in May, East Grinstead, Costa Blanca and Calpe 41 Clubs.

My diary is starting to fill up and invites are coming in for 2011/2012. If you have any type of event you would like representation at, be it a monthly meeting, social or sports event, cluster or helping your Round Table, if Malcolm cannot attend this year and I am free I will try to be there. Please check my diary on the web site this covers both this and the next 41 Club year.

I have just come back from a lunchtime social of Active Black Country 41 Club. This club formed approximately 20 months ago and appears to grow from strength to strength with numbers now in the 30’s, with its membership drawn from ex-Tablers from the local area, who wanted to continue the fun and fellowship and yet still have an active club; with its meetings ranging from laser quest to scuba diving in a local swimming pool.

The meeting on Sunday was organised to celebrate Fathers Day. It was a joint meeting with wives/partners and many came along with their families to help celebrate the day. The venue was superb, the food excellent and it was good to see many old friends. A really pleasant way to spend a Sunday Lunchtime.

Most of the members also belong to other 41 Clubs (many of which they call “dining clubs”),but this club pledges to continue to remain active, which can be seen by their programme of which the next two meetings are Archery and Clay Pigeon Shooting.

Off now to a Cluster meeting in Region 25 in Gillingham, more about this shortly.
