Club Dinner - The club dinner at the Admiral Rodney went well - we had 32 in attendance, nearly all the food disappeared in the space of an hour or so and it seemed to be enjoyed by all. Congratulations to the Rees / Connor / Newman / Gilliat team for winning the quiz, and thanks to Neil and the staff at the Rodney for providing the food, drink and quiz. We had a whip-round for the Children in Need appeal and collected just over £100 on the night, so thanks to all for attending and for contributing so generously.

Club Fleeces - Paul Best is now stocking club-logo'd fleeces, for more details see the News section.

Six pairs went into the initial round robin phase from which Gareth / Barbara and Derek / Joan emerged as the leading couples to contest the final.
