100 Club

The April 100 Club draw was carried out at The Fat Cat in Norwich and this month’s winners were:-

Brian Ellis [resident of Stockton-on-Tees]
Adrian Osler – [resident of Lesbury, Alnwick]

Cheques, in the sum of £55.00 each, have been dispatched.

Steve and I were joined this month by Jennie Foster [Clarke], Sandra Howard, Mel Read, Jo Voelker [Bassingthwaighte] (with husband, Norbert), Maggy Skipp [Smith], Steve Human and Eileen Wyatt [Pearson]. The span of Wycol eras represented by these attendees was probably over 50 years! Jo and Norbert carried out the draw for us.

As expected, The Fat Cat was very busy as it attracts a host of real ale aficionados given the number of beers on offer. The chalk board listing was extensive and, whilst we tried a fair few, there were just too many to write down as well as sample. However, Titanic Plum Porter was a firm favourite of myself and Steve. We did have a “musical chairs” scenario where, as our numbers increased, the local clientele respectfully moved around to accommodate us! A score, for the beer alone, must be 10 out of 10!

The May 100 Club draw will be held at The Kings Arms in Watton on Wednesday 17th May at 8.00pm. This is a newly reopened pub that featured in this EDP article – which is what alerted us to use it as a draw venue and deserves our support!

Hope to see some of you there.

Best Regards,
Phil Robinson

The event becomes more popular each year and always attracts a large contingent of golfers of varying standards. However, golf is not compulsory and many join later in the day for dinner and an evening of good company. A few more details can be found on the Future Reunions page.
