Press Awards

There are two Club competitions open to any GB&I affiliated 41 Club.

Firstly, there is the David Hewitt Award for the 41 Club with the best website. Calpe 41 Club currently holds this trophy. If you want to have a go at dethroning Calpe, then send me an e-mail to enter the competition! 

Secondly, there is the David Smith Award that goes to the 41 Club with the best newsletter. This award is currently held by Northampton Nene 41 Club. Once again, e-mail me if you would like to enter your Club’s newsletter into the competition! 

For both competitions, the closing date for entries is Thursday, February 14th 2019. 

The results will be announced at the AGM in Torquay.

National Photographic Competition 2019

The National Photographic Competition is kicking off! As they were last year, entries will be published online when voting opens, and the voting itself will also be online so that as many of you as possible can cast your votes, not just those attending National Conference. The winner will be announced at the AGM in Torquay and your favourite photos will appear in the calendar, profits from which will go to the Presidents’ charity.

There is a twist, however, this time around. In an effort to have closer ties with Tangent, both 41 Club President-Elect Andrew Mackereth and Tangent President-Elect Sue Hill have chosen the same charity for their year. The 2019 Photographic Competition is, therefore, a joint 41 Club and Tangent competition. 

Please send your entries to  comms@41club.org 

Bear in mind that the photos, if winners, will be printed slightly larger than A4 and in landscape mode except for the front cover. Your entries, therefore, have to be of sufficient resolution. As a rule of thumb, a JPEG file that is at least 2.0 to 2.5 MB in size should do the trick but bigger is better in this case. If you’d rather send me a link to the picture in your DropBox, OneDrive, Google Drive, Amazon S3 or other cloud storage facility then that’s fine too. 

The competition rules are as follows:
• Each photograph must be the work of the person entering it and entries are limited to four per member.
• Entry is only available to 41 Club members who can be verified on the CAS database and to Tangent members.
• Entries are to be submitted electronically to 
 comms@41club.org 
• Digital enhancement of photographs beyond basic colour correction and cropping is not allowed. The idea is to show off your photographic skills, not your image editing skills.
• All entries must include the name and Club of the photographer and a title.
• Photographs entered into this competition must not have been entered into any other competition.
• The photographer grants permission for 41 Club and Tangent to use the photographs for charitable fundraising activities.

NEW: Biker Weekend 2019

I'm delighted to report that I've already received enough interest since the publication of the latest edition of our 41 Club Magazine for this weekend to go ahead.

I'll be looking for a suitable venue over the next few days in area's where I know the roads are good for motorcycling.

The inaugural event will follow the format of an informal get together in the Friday night followed by a run out to somewhere of interest to us Bikers on the Saturday. Saturday night will still be relaxed but with sit down dinner and a quiz plus the opportunity to swap our motorcycling experiences.

On Sunday there will be another ride out to finish at a suitable venue for lunch with everyone departing for home afterwards.

This will be a partner's and/or friends weekend, for those who want to bring one. Lin will be on the back with me, as usual, enjoying the views and navigating through our "intercom".

There is plenty of space so if you've not registered your interest as yet please let me know by email on my new 41 dedicated email address terrycooper41club@gmail.com or call me on 07891 761599.

I will do an update in the January Newsletter and in the meantime have a great Christmas and a Happy Biking New Year.

Yours in Riding Fellowship,

Terry

A New Addition To The Fleet…

Feltham and Hounslow 41 Club's generous donation.

A message from SERV Surrey & South London 'Blood Runners'

'Saturday saw the addition of a new bike to our fleet… a Triumph Tiger 800 named ‘Louis Marchesi’. ‘Louis’ was donated to SERV SSL by the Feltham and Hounslow branch of the 41 Club. The money for the bike was raised through fundraising efforts at the Kempton Park Fireworks, which the 41 Club run in conjunction with their sister organisation, the Round Table. Handing over the keys on the day were David Palmer and Luigi Dodi from the 41 Club. Gratefully receiving the bike on behalf of SERV SSL was stalwart volunteer Louisa, who will be running the bike in and putting it to work on blood runs and other requirements undertaken in support of the NHS and the Kent Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance. We like to extend a big thank you to the Feltham and Hounslow 41 Club and all those members of the public who supported the Kempton Park Fireworks… ‘Louis Marchesi’ is working hard alongside the rest of the fleet, making a difference to the lives of others.'

Charity Ride 2018

From the 5th to the 8th of September 2018 Northwich 41ers Mark Powell and Simon Clough together with some of Mark's ex-colleagues from Barclays successfully cycled 104 miles around the Isle of Anglesey North Wales.

Currently, with support from Barclays £4£, they have raised an amazing £6,900 for Macmillan Cancer Support (Their target was £5k !!) and will hit £7k by mid-December.

The President's Charity 2018-19

President Phill has chosen a charity very close to his heart for this year's Charity:

To donate to Phill's Just Giving page CLICK HERE

Phill's own six-year-old grandson Enzo suffers from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a life-limiting condition that affects 100 boys born in the UK every year. It usually affects only boys, but girls can also show symptoms of Duchenne. With your help, MDUK will fund the essential research that will one day discover a solution to this terrible condition.

2019 Forecast Night

London Old Tablers’ are having their 80th Anniversary

Save the Date!!!! London Old Tablers’ are having their 80th Anniversary

The World’s second oldest 41 Club is celebrating the 80th anniversary of its founding with a black tie dinner in a magnificent location in central London on Friday 17th May 2019.

The London Old Tablers’ Society (officially London No. 2 but better known as LOTS), formed in 1939, is one of four 41 Clubs who founded the National Association of Ex-Tablers' Clubs (now the National Association of 41 Clubs) in 1945 along with Liverpool, Lytham St Annes and Wakefield. A member of LOTS, John Shuter, was the first National President (1945 – 47) and over the years we have had three other members who have served as National President.

So, come along to the prestigious National Liberal Club in Whitehall Place overlooking the Thames in the heart of London on Friday 17th May and join National Presidents past and present to celebrate this historic anniversary. You might even want to make a weekend of it to take in a show and see the sights in London.

If you want to come to the Black Tie dinner please send an email to LOTS80th@gmail.com letting us know your name and which 41 Club you are a member of. We will send you the final details for the evening when they are available so you can confirm your booking.

We don't just sit there!

Let's prove it!

Let's show the world that we actually do things!

The internet offers us the opportunity to tell the world that 41 Club is not just a dining club where old men talk about things that were better in their day. It provides the ability to communicate with 'like minded' people, to show others (especially current and ex-Tablers) that we do still participate in activities that may be of interest to them. We have therefore decided to create a range of Special Interest Groups (SIGs) on Facebook that are open to all members of the Four Club Family. You are invited to join them if they interest you or to point your friends to them if you know they are interested. Additionally we will welcome your ideas as to what other groups we can create (golf, walking, cycling, fishing are just a few possibilities).

So let's see some action. The groups / forums already set up are listed in the block on the right. The groups are closed so that you have to request membership and your views, photos etc. will only be shared with like minded members. You will need a Facebook account to join most of these groups. The Bikers Forum is open to all as it is not a closed group.

If you would like to start other groups please send the details to webmaster@41club.org

We will need your name, your Facebook ID, the name of the group and brief details on its aims. We will then set the group up for you, making you the first member and allowing you to invite other Facebook members to join.

So who wants a football group? a rugby group? or even a cake decorating group? It is up to you. It costs nothing and will hopefully encourage other ex members to join 41 Club and Tangent. It may even get some members to start new activities!
