Forfar & District 50th Anniversary Dinner - 25th March

A really enjoyable evening was organised by Forfar and District 41 Club in celebration of their 50th Anniversary Dinner. The event was held at the local golf club and Allan Thomson, the National Councillor for Region 2, and I both enjoyed an evening of fun and fellowship in which the members were able to meet up with old friends and swap stories of their time in Table. The food, venue and staff were excellent and we were very well looked after.

The highlight of the evening was a presentation to Alan Garrick in recognition of his long term support of the club (he has been a member continuously for 41 years) and he was appointed as the club’s first “Life Honorary President”.

1741 Club Charity Night – Wednesday 23rd March

A really enjoyable charity games night was organised by 1741 Club at their normal meeting place – The Town Club, Enfield.

There they organised an evening of “pig racing”, which not only involved members of the club, but also the local Round Tables and locals/visitors to the club.

The plan was quite simple. Two pieces of wood, which had been divided into six lanes, screwed together. Organise the tote, race the battery driven pigs, pay out the winners and the balance was kept for charity. Everyone had a good time and to watch it was extremely funny and to top it off they raised £195.00 for Round Table Children's Wish

Sutton and Cheam Round Table Reunion Dinner - 25th February 2011

A really enjoyable evening was had by all. Sutton and Cheam 41 Club combined forces to organise the Sutton and Cheam Round Table Reunion Dinner, both Tables have unfortuantely now closed.

It was an evening to enjoy the fun and fellowship they all had in Round Table, recounting the history of the clubs and finishing off with a few jokes.

The dinner was well attended by current 41'ers and former tables and hofefully will be a constant fixture in their diaries.

I attended a very enjoyable Charity Burns Night along with Round Table President John Kilsh, Past Round Table President Peter Manley a large contingent of Tables from Airdrie Round Table and several other Round Tables and 41 Club members. A large sum for raised for local charities friendships renewed.
