WEBSITE AWARD …. AGAIN
At the National AGM today, in Belfast, our website has been named as the website of the year, for the second year. We last won in 2016, when the David Hewitt award was received on our behalf by Past President, Gordon Macnab.
Last year Gordon received the award again, this time for Costa Blanca 41 Club’s website.
And on 14th April our member, and also Past President, Ian Mackenzie received the award on our behalf, from National Communications Officer, Godwin Stewart. This is particularly significant, as Gordon gave us great encouragement when we formed Calpe and District 41 Club in 2005, and Ian was the President who presented the club’s charter in 2006.
We will celebrate the 12th anniversary of being chartered on June 14th, at the amazing Restaurante Puerto Blanco, in the company of new President, Phill Ellis, and our own Jill Harris, the new National President of Tangent.
We move in exalted company.
Our March meeting is our AGM, and this year outgoing Chairman Keith praised the health of the club. He reviewed his year, and thanked the many people in the club who have supported him. Malcolm Lee was elected as Chairman, Steve Moores as Vice Chairman. Steve continues as Menus & Venues coordinator for this year. Andrew Johnson continues as Treasurer.
Andrew reviewed progress so far on Cluster 2019. Keith installed Malcolm as Chairman, and Malcolm outlined his social programme for the year. Another good year in prospect.
BOWLING IN FELLOWSHIP
We had a chilly but fun morning, bowling with our neighbouring club, Costa Blanca 41 Club, based in Javea. 20 players from the two clubs played in pairs at the Javea Green Bowls Club (at The Inn on the Green).
Chairman Keith organised and hosted the bowls, while CB41 chairman, Keith Hyde, organised
We think that we played pretty well as a club, but we chose not to embarrass anyone by declaring the winner.
Great fun. Great fellowship Thank you Keith and Keith!!
A MESSAGE FROM CHAIRMAN KEITH
On behalf of Paula and myself I would like to wish all members and partners a very Happy Christmas and a Healthy New Year.
Those of you, like us, who are suffering the early onset of Winter in UK will be wishing for sunnier climes, whilst those still in Spain are enjoying some very acceptable temperatures.
For the coming year please let Steve know when you are travelling to Spain.
I am liaising with Keith Hyde at CB 41 to arrange a joint social on Wednesday 21st Feb.
This will take the form of Bowling at Javea Green Club from 11am until 1pm followed by lunch at a nearby restaurant. Please come and try it – bowls and shoes will be available at the Club.
An important date for your diaries is Thursday 14th June 2018, which will be our Charter Anniversary ( this is one month later than usual, so well worth noting ).
Looking forward to seeing you all next year and, once again, have a Happy Christmas.
