November 2021 Club Meeting

Our chef at work

Our next meeting is at The Green Room, Bar Street, Scarborough at the usual time of 7.30pm on Thursday, 18 November 2021.

You may know the place formerly as Boddy’s of Bar Street.

They have room for 42 in the main dining room downstairs. It would be good if we could fill the place.

They are keen to impress us with some traditional English fare. The owner/chef trained at Scarborough Technical college and remembers cooking for us on a couple of Burns’ Nights as a nervous trainee! Members and guests are encouraged to support the evening.

Apologies, please in the usual way from here no later than 12 noon on Friday, 12 November.

41 Club National October 2021 Newsletter

Please find attached a copy of the October 2021 41 Club Newsletter featuring the incredible Charles Montlake and much more plus here’s an invitation to join us this Wednesday at 7:30pm, for our next 41 Club Connects Event featuring the incredible story of Ruth Curry.

Join Ruth and hear her story about her life in Zimbabwe, the sudden life changes for her and her family due to the political turmoil and how the Round Table Family saved them from a horrific situation offering a life line to start again.

For those hampered by the typo in the Zoom address to join the recent talk on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway my apologies again, but you can now view this talk (and most of our previous ones too) on-line at www.41ClubConnects.co.uk so please do take the opportunity to catch up.

An early plug for the Zoom “Town Hall Meeting” with the National Board on Wednesday 24th November – more details to follow as we get closer but the essence is you will have the opportunity to raise questions without having to wait for the Cardiff AGM. We are looking to Adopt Adapt and Improve to serve you better.

Another event I would like to highlight is the forthcoming charity gin tasting organised by Tangent – just to let you know that the deadline to place your orders is 27 October.

Keep safe

Yours in continued friendship

October 2021 Meeting Report: Tandoori Night

Well, what a difference, after the poor attendance at the first meet for 2021. An excellent turn out at the Scarborough Tandoori, fortunately the Tandoori could cope with the expanded numbers with ease.

The food was excellent as ever at this venue starting with the usual Poppadoms with dips, followed by a selection of starters which were superb and more than generous; the main course was a selection of curry dishes. Wine was provided for those attending.

The meeting was presided over by our esteemed vice chairman, Peter Calow, in the absence of Chairman David Ascough who was unable to attend.

Guests attending were Ben Kitto (Scarborough 88) and prospective new 41 Club member Colin Bird.

Hopefully the November meeting will be as well attended as this month’s and we look forward to seeing you there.

Caption competition September 2021 meeting

Dominic has sent in this photo for a caption competition.

He hasn’t mentioned the prize but let’s guess it might involve the Nag’s Head and beer.

Please send your suggestions to me by the next meeting and I’ll forward them on (unless you have Dom’s email anyway).

Good luck!

September 2021 Meeting Report: Tapas Evening

The Chairman quickly gets back into the swing of things

After almost two years since our last 41 Club we returned to the La Roca restaurant on Blands Cliff to repeat the excellent evening we last enjoyed as our first meeting back after Lockdown.

The evening was enjoyed by all attending although there was a disappointing number of non-apologies the upside on low numbers being generous amounts of food and wine for those who turned up ! Hopefully now we are up and running again with regular meetings 41 Clubbers will now get back into the swing of submitting their apologies.

There were three guests in attendance at the Tapas meeting namely Andrew Hayes Ben Kitto and John Price.

There was a toast to the memory of sadly missed Tom Cathcart who passed away recently and will be greatly missed. The restaurant owner kindly contributed a bottle of Whiskey for the purpose and out of respect to Tom.

Unfortunately national councillor Wynn Parry who was due to attend the meeting was unwell and unable to join us, there was talk of Shingler stepping in with a talk on his motor home but this idea developed a puncture and deflated for better or worse !

Ben Kitto gave members an update on Round Table, membership numbers are a challenge at the moment but hopefully now that we have come out of Lockdown membership will perk up.

Brian Heaps present at the meeting mentioned that 2021 marked 50 years that he has been attending 41 Club for which Brian was congratulated.

Nigel tells of his 7 Spades Slam whilst Darren looks on fascinatedly

41 Club National and International Newsletters September 2021

You’re waiting ages for 41 Club newsletters, and two come at once. They’re mostly about the great idea of YAP Day.

Young Ambassadors Program [“YAP”] Day, this Saturday morning, 11th September, from 9am until 12-noon 41

Club YAP Co-ordinator Bruce Bennett writes:-

Hello Everyone As the world starts to awake from its enforced slumber and the probability of world travel becomes a possibility again (albeit a little way off yet) thoughts have turned to the prospect of the resumption of the Young Ambassadors Program (YAP). For those of you who have never heard of such a Program or a little unsure of what it’s all about, it is in essence:  “The promotion of exchange visits between the children (Young Adults between the ages of 18-25) of parents who are members of 41 Clubs” throughout the world. Such a short, although precise, description does not do any justice to the outstanding opportunities available to potential Young Ambassadors. The chance to travel and have the opportunity to meet other 41 Club members and their families – see how they live their lives and learn about the host’s customs and culture. If you think you know someone in your family that would love to do this and would like more information, then the following is for you.  The YAP Convenors from the Member Associations throughout the World are hosting A YAP DAY. THIS WILL BE ONLINE ON THE 11th of SEPTEMBER 2021 between 9am & 12-noon (British Summer Time). Everything you need to know including – 

  • The idea behind YAP.
  • How does the YAP concept work?
  • What do I have to do to apply?
  • What does the itinerary of an event look like?
  • Where do the tours go to?

 After a presentation of the most recent tours there will be live reports from the participants of previous groups with the opportunity to speak to them directly with any questions you may have. To register for the YAP-DAY simply go to: https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZcsf-urqz4qGdfBm_g5kfTrUOEMC06ZIwLJ We expect a large demand for places at the meeting, so I recommend you register as soon as possible. If you have any problems registering or questions my email is yap@41club.org YiCF

41 Club National Newsletter July 2021

Dear Member, I am sending the attached July Newsletter direct to everyone.

Firstly an apology that it’s late this month – the perils of work intruded.

It’s a full newsletter loaded with details of spectacular feats of fund raising (take a bow Kilsh and Steve Lord but they are no means alone). To everyone who has done spectacular feats to raise money for the National President’s Charity, Dementia UK, well done. It’s also full of details of the various weekend breaks on offer – including The 41 Club Big Weekend in October. And a first report on the 41 Club National Car Rally in Kent at the beginning of the month.  But that’s not all – there’s a feature on Welfare, and reports from various clubs, and and and – did I mention the Whisky, or the Beer, or the Wine Tasting? Is it any wonder that it’s late this month with so much in it?

Don’t forget to join me on Zoom this Saturday for the latest 41 Club Wine Club Wine Tasting – expertly paired with cheeses by Roger Hanley.

Read the Newsletter – enjoy it – and remember 41 Club is about #ContinuingToDoMore

Keep safe

Yours in continuous friendship
