The Christmas party is done and dusted for another year. We all had a good time and sat comfortably outdoors in a large circle talking before dinner. Ralph held a court by playing a song he selected, on the sound system, which were dedicated to the characters of the club. It was a very amusing affair and even I did not escape without a song for me. A recovery paddle was held the next day. If you become a member of the club it opens you to all this fun and friendship. Paddles are still held at 6 A.M. on Tuesdays and Fridays; on Sunday you can sleep in and hour as we start leaving at 7 A.M. We always hang around the club house after these paddles and have an instant coffee and chat. You will be surprised where the conversation sometimes leads to! Regards, David Grimshaw.
