Paul Cammiss - National President 2002-2003

It is with sadness that we have to report the passing of Paul Cammiss on the 15th February.  

Paul had a distinguished career both in RTBI and 41 Club.  He was National Secretary of RTBI 1989-90. In 41 Club he was National President in 2002-2003, then Honorary Solicitor for 15 years and upon retirement from that office in 2018 was awarded Honorary Life Membership.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Lin and his family at this sad time.

Further details will be announced when available,

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.

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.'

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.

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.

Vice Chairman

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.

The 2019 Club Cruise

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!
