Do I drive

now?!









​​
Gentlemen,
 
For those of you who did not attend the April 03 AGM I want to repeat here that I thank you all for the confidence and for the honour to be allowed to hold the chair of your Club. Having been asked to start as vice chairman was a complete surprise to me. Indeed, Rita and I came to Spain to enjoy the sun and the sea....
 
The question really didn’t leave me with much time to think about it. But it made vivid the good memories I had of Round Table and 41. If I may express my feelings about the friendship I met I can only say that I always have been thankful and grateful to have been part of the Associations, for besides the friendship, 
​​Round Table was and is instructive and educational for youngsters. It was for me. So, I remembered President Kennedy’s words when he said “Roy, do not ask what 41 can do for you, but ask what you can do for 41”!

However, after having accepted the vice chairmanship, when driving home, I asked myself if I had to drive on the left side of the road now! But when I saw a Spanish car approaching head on, I said I better don’t! Also no, because friendship doesn’t know left or right and has no borders. No, because friendship transcends customs and habits. No, because a round table has no corners.   Fully aware of the



AGM Handover
above, as your chairman I intend to continue the dedication of my predecessor and the efforts of the past Council members.

So far the idealistic me. Let me turn to the realistic part.

I proposed the 2019-20 calendar. Because of some comments – comments are always welcome – changes have been made. Others are still to be made for later in the year. The updated version will be published on the website, and Gordon will notify you about the updates in due time. Costs and variation have been considered. The meetings still to be planned will take into account a balance in geographical locations as far as possible and practicable. May I call your attention to the changed dates in the months May and July, and to the swap in December as asked during the AGM meeting. Please consult the calendar on the website.
With regard to the Billy Boules we got in touch and still await a confirmation from Calpe 41.

We are delighted to welcome Brian Bates from Shawbury and District (Shropshire) Round Table and 41 Club who moved to Moraira and who likes to continue his involvement in 41. Brian and Marilyn will join us at the May regular. Welcome.

Regrettably Rita and I will be in Belgium during the month of May where our presence is required for an AGM (our property) and for the EU and national elections on the 26th (we can’t vote in Spain). So please excuse us.

Kind regard

Roy                                                                                                                                                             Chairman 2019-20
