January 2020 Meeting Report: Chinese Banquet

January’s 41 Club meeting took place at the Chinese New Year, the Year of the Rat. Any 41 Clubber who chose to give the meeting a miss must now be rattled!

The Chinese meeting was arranged as a joint get-together with our better halves. We also had a very good turn out of Scarborough 88 Round Tablers along with their partners.

We were treated to a real banquet. This included the traditional prawn crackers, secondly a medley of deep fried treats, followed by crispy duck with pancakes, and the main of five dishes which were excellent and tasty. After which yours truly (and I assume most present} were fairly much stuffed.

The current chair of Round Table, Steve Molyneaux, gave those present an update on the forthcoming Aalten twinning visit and invited 41 Club to take part. The involvement of 41 Club members is particularly invited as many current members of Scarborough Round Table have not experienced the chance of meeting and mingling with overseas tablers.
