January 2018 Events Roundup

January 2018 

The first meeting of the year was held on 11th and again we found ourselves in the ‘small’ room. Never mind, a good meeting as usual, with a quiz at the end.

Malcolm’s run went off well on the 18th where we found ourselves starting from the Ballabona and enjoying countryside view to San Juan for coffee overlooking the sea, and then on to La Herrerias for lunch, where no less than 32 folks enjoyed a good lunch. 

The 950 Club venue changed this month to Longo’s near Albox, where despite the wet weather many turned out, although due to snow and a very cold start to the day some just couldn’t make it. Nonetheless  a well supported event with many members in attendance.If you haven’t been along, why not? 

See you next month.

December Events Roundup

December 2017

Well, the last club meeting for 2017, was held on 7th and we were consigned to the ‘small’ room for reasons best known to others. Anyway, it mattered not as we crowded in and made the best of it. Rag Rolls and nuts were available for folks to ‘buy’ for a contribution to our PAWs charity.

​I​t was Christmas Run and Lunch day on 13th when we met at Ballabona Hotel and enjoyed a good drive to La Vida for coffee and on to Messon Irene for lunch. Two whole tables were filled with 35 members and guests, which makes it up there with the best attended events of the year. Well organised, by Will and Charli; we even had named table cards with our individual menu selections as reminders. Much welcomed by those with ‘failing powers’! We all had Xmas presents too – free club base ball caps were handed out to members and club pens to partners, by our Regalia Officers, Peter and Karen.

Then on to 16th December when some members attended the Spanish concentration at Velez Blanco, while others went to Bar Laguna for the 950 Club meet.

And finally, to round off the year, the (now traditional) Boxing Day Swim at La Cela was well supported and two intrepid members (some would say ‘bonkers’) went in for a dip! See the club’s facebook page for the evidence.

So, a good years outings and we look forward to seeing you all again next year.
