NS&SW 2020

National Social and Sporting Weekend 2020 will again be held at Potters Leisure Resort Hopton-on-Sea, Norfolk. Following the great success of this year's event, it was a unanimous decision by members to return.

All your favourite sports that were there this year including the off-road Segways, rally karts, tenpin bowling, snooker, darts, kurling, bowls, golf and many more will all be available and we are also hoping to introduce some new games for you to play along with the great social meeting.

Quiet areas are available if you do not wish to participate in the sports and just socialise with fellow members.

All meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner and midnight feast) are included in the price along with Sunday lunch so you don't have to rush away. With cheap beer and late night bars, with evening entertainment on both nights in the Atlas Theatre and with live bands and shows in the Terrace Bar.

The Cawston Brass Band has already been booked again for the Saturday evening so plenty of flag waving to the Dambusters and all your other favourites.

The outdoor sports and golf will be on Friday afternoon as they were so popular to allow us to get more people playing them.

Accommodation is based on two people sharing a bungalow (see booking form for more details) and starts at £240 per person,

A superb weekend of fun and fellowship awaits, just look at the Facebook forum and spring magazine report of this year's event to see what awaits you. You will not be disappointed.

Presidential Ball

The Presidential Ball is to be held on Saturday 29th February 2020.  An easy date to remember so put it in your diaries right away.

The Ball is in aid of the Joint Presidential charity the RNLI which hopes to raise enough to purchase five rescue water-craft for the beach lifeguards, to be based around the coast of GB&I.

The venue is the beautiful Elizabethan Crewe Hall which is just 5 minutes from the M6 and Crewe Railway Station.

Joint Presidents' Charity 2019-20

This year 41 Club and Tangent will be joining together with the purpose of raising at least £50,000 for the Royal National Lifeboat Institute.

It is 31 years since we last purchased four 'D' Class inshore lifeboats, named 41 Club I, II, III and Tangent I.  They served with distinction and saved many lives.  Now the RNLI also provide lifeguards at over 260 beaches around GB&I during the summer months.  It is our intention to purchase Water Rescue Craft to aid the lifeguards to rescue those in distress, each one costing £10,000.  They are specially adapted jetskis that enable them to reach the casualties quickly and over far greater distances than swimming alone.

During the year there will be numerous fundraising events so please support as many as you can.

We live on an island and one day every one of us, our children and generations to come may need the help of the RNLI.

Please keep an eye out for information on how you can help this crucial service.

A Classic 'Classic'

No need for a long explanation just let the comments on Facebook tell the story:

"On behalf of the two new petrol heads from Norton/Radstock 41 club, thanks for organising a superb weekend where fellowship more than anything came to the fore. It has proved that 41 Club is alive and kicking and not just a retirement home for old Round Tablers!!"

"What a great weekend! We really enjoyed our first Classic Car Rally you have all worked so hard to bring this event together and what a fantastic job you have all done."

"Thanks to the Shirley Late Knights for organising a great 41 Club Classic Car Rally this weekend! Great routes and the scenery was fantastic even when it rained!"

"Great weekend fellas. Thanks for the memories...."

​The 41 Club CARAVAN & CAMPING RALLY goes NORTH

Friday 13 SEPTEMBER – MONDAY 16 SEPTEMBER 2019 (3 Nights)

Following the great success of the last two years, at a site near Oxford, the 2019 41 Club Caravan and Camping Rally is venturing North into the Yorkshire Dales. You are now invited to join fellow members at Hawes where we will be staying at a site known as Bainbridge Ings. http://www.bainbridge-ings-countrypark.co.uk/ which is owned by a member of 41 Club.

           

If you don’t yet own a caravan or a tent but still want to join in the fellowship there are a few pods and lodges available which can be booked directly through Hoeseasons on the campsite website.

The Rally programme will start Friday evening with a welcome drink, an evening meal which will be followed by a Quiz on “All things Yorkshire”. This is an excellent opportunity to meet your “fellow campers” and book in for the other activities that we will have planned for Saturday and Sunday. These currently include a visit to White Scar Caves, a trip around the Wensleydale Cheese factory and a walk around the famous Ingleton waterfalls trail (weather permitting). The local town of Hawes has some delightful restaurants, shops and bars and nearby, is the picturesque Ribblehead Viaduct. There will be further food and entertainment on the Saturday evening and other socialising activities arranged throughout the weekend.

The cost of this 3-night stay including pitch fees and hook-up, is the same as last year at £99.50 per pitch.

Best Ever

'I have been here for three years and this is the best night ever'  Not the quote of a 41er but a waitress at the National Social and Sporting Weekend prize dinner.

We all agreed with her that weekend had been a great success and that the Potters Resort had provided us with a great venue, great food, great entertainment and a perfect setting for 41 Club fellowship.

Congratulations to Barry Hall from Ribble and Lune Active for winning the overall sporting trophy and to all those that took part.

More details will be in the newsletter and a full report in the magazine.

The weekend was so successful that it was unanimously agreed to hold the 2020 event at Potters on the 7th-9th February.

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!
