July : Fat Cat and Canary
Off to the Fat Cat and Canary for a pint and a mardle. An excellent pub run by Colin Keatley who also runs our usual meeting place, the Fat Cat.

June: Turmeaus
We started the evening with a very nice meal at the Thai Jasminum restuarant in Rollesby (highly recommended) and then went to Turmeaus for an hour or so to indulge ourselves. The hospitality at Turmeaus was up to its usual high standard and a very pleasant time was had by all. Thanks to Liam and Cally who looked after us. The secretary managed to exercise some restraint with his purchases this year!

New members!
We wish to welcome Ben Conway and Toby Palmer, two new members who joined the club in May. They have seen the light and are switching from cigarettes to pipes. A very sensible choice!

May : Quiz
Delighted to see David Bates who travelled all the way from the West Midlands for this month's meeting.

We had a quiz set by Phil Smith and Tony "Bamber" Larner was the question master. Len and John Walker came joint first.

The AGM was held at the Fat Cat. Chairman Larner gave a short review of the previous year's activities and the secretary went into more detail. The treasurer reported that the club funds are in sound order even after taking into account the costs of producing the book of the club's history.

The officers were re-elected apart from John Betts who voluntarily stood down. John was thanked by the members of the club for his service over the years.
