JUST ANOTHER MEETING

21 of us met at our June monthly meeting. IMG_3387We met with vice chairman, Malcolm Lee in the chair, as chairman, Keith and Paula were off exploring Asturias by caravan.

We finalised plans for our annual Billy Boules contest with neighbouring Costa Blanca 41 Club, as well as our 12th charter night, in June next year. Keep an eye on our Calendar page.

This photo shows a few of us, with the ladies’ table behind.

CHARTER AT LADIES’ NIGHT

DSC04872Our Ladies’ Night also marked the 11th anniversary of the chartering of this thriving club. A total of 65 members and guests celebrated the success of the club, and paid tribute to our ladies.

Chairman, Keith welcomed National President, Dave Campbell, together with his wife Pauline. This was their second visit to the club – the second of many we are assured.DSC04937

Past Chairman David Welpton said Grace, and Past Chairman Malcolm Lee proposed the Loyal Toast.

DSC04907Chairman, Keith Beaman proposed the toast to the Ladies, and to the Association.

The response and the toast to the club was made by National President Dave Campbell.

Dave also presented Keith with his DSC04949presidential banner.

And, finally (before the dancing) DSC04947Founder Chairman, Andrew Johnson thanked Dave, and proposed the Final Toast.

Our venue, once again was Puerto Blanco, and, once again, Patrick, Maria and the team did us proud. A spectacular meal in this unique, and very special setting. Wonderful service, and lots of charm.

We were delighted to welcome Past President, Gordon Macnab and Elaine, especially as Gordon is now Vice Chairman of neighbouring club (Costa Blanca), which originally presented us with our DSC04905Chairman’s Jewel. And Gordon and Elaine were not alone. We value our close neighbours continued support for the club.

Another marvellous event.

On the following day around 15 of us met with Dave & Pauline and Keith and Paula for coffee by the Levante beach, and then for another great meal at old favourite, Regatta.

NATIONAL WEBSITE AWARD

P1000250We are delighted to announce that the award, which we won for this site just a year ago, remains in Spain! In fact it has been won for 20016/17, by our older sibling club – Costa Blanca 41 Club, based in Javea.

Congratulations to the club, and especially to Vice Chairman (and National Past President) Gordon Macnab, who’s initiative it was — and who does most of the work!
