Month: May 2018
Again we were let down by our usual venue for our monthly meeting on 3rd May, but thanks to Alan Foreman’s hard work, we met at Asador Sierra Enmedio, Los Norias, for an excellent meeting with over 40 members, plus guests.
The Brunch Meeting on 9th was very well supported with 14 folks arriving at Bar La Union for breakfast/ brunch and chat. It was well received and flushed with success; another will be arranged in a month or so. Many thanks to Gary and Sue (members and owners) at Bar La Union for their warm welcome.
Of course the big event this month was the Three Day Outing arranged by David and Sue Fox on 16-18th. This takes a lot of time and effort, not to mention stress before and during. So, it was good to see the event was well supported and all had a good time.
It was back to Bar Laguna, Vera Playa, for this month’s 950 Club meeting. Recent changes to street layouts and paths meant no parking outside the bar; rather, a car park around the corner had been allocated for our use. The organisers felt it was far from ideal, but made the best of it. Around 20 cars pitched up, some unseen before.
See you next month.
The next club meeting will be held at Bar La Union in La Alfoquia and not our usual venue of Hotel Overa.
The meeting will be on 7th June starting at 3.00pm as usual.
For more details please contact any committee member.
Andy & Julie
We welcomed two new members again this month: Gary Bowen and Steve Rolls. Each month we grow stronger! We also welcomed back our VP Chas after time away due to family commitments. He did an admirable job of chairing a noisy and entertaining meeting. The usual shambles surrounded my quiz efforts at the end of the meeting. Andy and Sue won with full marks. A first for one of the clubs quizzes, I think.
Thirty three members and fifteen cars turned up on Thursday 19th for the run organised by Alan and Margaret Foreman. Starting off from Bar Las Vegas in Huercal we followed a winding path to Bar Las Vegas (no, it’s not a typo) at Velez Rubio,then onto Los Lucas for lunch at Puertocico.
Thanks to Alan and Margaret.
And so to the 950 Club meeting, which was held this month at Bar Kalevala, because, it seems they are creating a cycle path opposite Bar Laguna. Perhaps this will cause a problem for parking in the future. A bit inconsiderate since cyclists pay no road tax (only my opinion of course!). Anyway, a good turn out with many club members in attendance, including two cars seen for the first time: Andy and Julie’s Mitsubshi and Richard and Michelle’s Vitesse.
See you next month.
