History of 41 Club in Kinross-shire 18-07-2016 Club news: Kinross-shire

Kinross was formerly the county town of Kinross-shire, hence the Club's name. Kinross is now part of the county of Perth and Kinross but the town very much retains its original character.  It is located between the M90 motorway that carries traffic north from Edinburgh to Perth and onwards to the Highlands and Loch Leven, a large fresh water loch that is a National Nature Reserve and wildlife spectacular.

Round Table in Kinross started in 1963 when the Club was officially chartered as Table No. 814 and became part of the national organisation.

The first meeting of 41 Club in Kinross-shire took place at the Royal Hotel, Milnathort on 11th February 1976. The formation of the Club was aided by members of St. Andrew's Ex-Tablers' Club, one of whom chaired the meeting and got things off to a good start.

Three of the Kinross-shire 41 Club original members who were there on that evening are still members today. The Club became officially affiliated to the national organisation in September of that year and has met regularly ever since.

Our Club is a little unusual as in the early days, to make up numbers, members' wives came along as well.  This tradition has survived over the years and wives or partners as well as widows of deceased members are always welcomed at most Club meetings.
