The photograph shows Mike Proctor handing over the Chairmanship of Nerja 41 Club (a Club for Ex Round Tablers from all over Europe) to Jim Skinner. Under Mike’s leadership, the Club has enjoyed a superb year of fun which will be hard to follow. Jim has taken up the challenge by introducing some new events.

Nerja 41 Club continues its search for former Round Tablers . Past members of the thousands of Round Tables throughout the world who are living East of Malaga full time or for part of the year are invited to join our local Ex Tablers Club, known as the East of Malaga or Nerja 41 Club.

Jim Skinner has the privelege of Chairing Nerja 41 Club for 2016/2017. Our Club membership of 40+ members includes Ex Tablers from several North European Countries including Belgium, Austria, Sweden,Finland, Denmark and, of course, England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. The vast majority of our members are non resident and are in Spain for only a short time every year although resident and non resident are naturally equally welcome! Our Club continues to thrive and celebrated its eleventh birthday last year.

Nerja 41 Club meets twice a month on the first and third Thursdays. On the first Thursday of the month we have our ‘Munch Bunch’ lunch when we go out with our ladies to sample ‘menu del dia’ in many of the different restaurants around our very large catchment area. Our meeting on the third Thursday is for the Club members at the hotel ‘Al Andaluz’, Maro which is very close to the Caves of Nerja, and on these evenings the ladies meet at the hotel followed by a meal in a nearby restaurant. Some of our Club evenings are shared with our ladies if we have a splendid speaker or special event and on other evenings the fun and fellowship of Round Table comes to the fore.

We have many plans for the coming 41 Club year which will include a boules evening, vineyard visit, Ladies Night, Christmas Party, a joint meeting in Malaga with the Costa del Sol 41 Club as well as the Chairman’s BBQ. We are going to Portugal in October for the Iberian Cluster of all 41 Clubs from Spain and Portugal who meet annually for a three day event of fun and fellowship. Our own Club hosted this event two years ago and entertained 220 visitors from all over Europe.

So, if you are an Ex Tabler come and join us for lunch with our ladies and/or a 41 Club meeting. Try our website nerja41club.org or contact me Alfie Fornear on 626998626, or a.fornear@hotmail.comNwr
