Summer BBQ

Unfortunately the summer BBQ had to be cancelled. 41 Club chose one of the few nights of this glorious summer when torrential rain was forecast. This was a disappointment as Tom had planned an evening of West Indian food and entertainment.

Simon Says

A miracle drug is one that has now the same price as last year.

How many pharmacists does it take to change a light bulb?
 Just one, but he has to do it ten days, three times a day.

Simon looks out the front of the chemist and sees a woman holding a bottle jumping up and down in the parking lot. The pharmacist walks out to the parking lot and asks the woman whats the matter. She replies ” I saw it said ‘Shake Well’ after I took it”.

National Sporting Events

Following the superb triumph of the another British cyclist and fellow Welshman Geraint Thomas in the Tour de France I thought it would be timely to remind everyone that the inaugural 41 Club National cycling event takes place next month over the weekend of 10th-12th August.
Hosted by Northampton Nene 41 club this event is an opportunity for budding cyclists to pit themselves against fellow 41ers in the hope of receiving the “coveted yellow jersey” or if you are like me it offers the chance to have a leisurely cycle ride through the countryside of Northamptonshire plus the socialising that follows each evening.
If anyone is interested it is not too late to book and you should contact Ken Banfield onken.banfield@virginmedia.com or 07740 104242.  The price of the event is £37 per person which includes Friday evening food and a BBQ on Saturday.
Continuing with the sporting theme and for those of you who enjoyed attending previous Round Table National Sporting weekends, have you considered attending 41 Club’s own NSSW. If you have a competitive streak then this is an event not to be missed but if you only fancy having a weekend of fun and fellowship with fellow 41ers then you should also consider going because the additional “S” depicts the key word “Socialising”.
This year’s event is being held at the Potters resort near Great Yarmouth on Friday 1st to Sunday 3rd February 2019.. Prices for the weekend package incl. all sports, food and entertainment is £230 per person sharing. Further details can be obtained from Kelly Clarke at region17@41club.org

October Meeting – Trafalgar Night Celebration

Thursday 18 October at the Sea Cadets Hall + Business Meeting. Meet at the Golden Ball for a drink beforehand. The hall will be decorated by the sea cadets. Tom and John will cook a Jamie Oliver (is that a type of cod?) fish pie followed by apple strudel. Wine to be provided at no extra cost. Evening to include a 20 min video about the Battle of Trafalgar.

Charity Night – Advance notice

Advance notice – This year’s Scarborough 41 Club Annual Charity Event will be held on Friday 30th November (NB – not Friday 23rd November as stated in the last newsletter) at Scarborough Rugby Club. The evening is planned to include a sit down three course meal, entertainment, cash bar, high quality raffle and a Billy Joel tribute act! We hope to keep ticket prices down at last year’s cost of £30pp (to include meal and entertainment) – and as this will be a scheduled 41 Club meeting, members will only need to fork out extra for their partner’s ticket!
Chairman Simon’s chosen charity this year is Scarborough Samaritans, and all proceeds will go to this important and worthwhile service which relies on it’s own local funding. The more support we have from members attending the event the better. Last year we raised nearly £2000 for Scarborough Disabled Swimming Group – and it would be terrific to try and top that this year.
Many thanks for your support.
Gordon Hayes (Scarborough 41 Club charity committee chairman)
