About 10 times a year, we do a business meeting, meal with a speaker of random topics.
Folk think we sit in formal lounge suits but think again people! We’re casual, with jeans and a blue rugby the typical order of dress. One individual, we have yet to see him in anything but shorts, even on the coldest of nights.
This meet we skipped the speaker as we wanted to get the inductions done of 2 new members in order to retire to the bar for a social welcome drink. That way, with formalities aside, we socially welcome Andy and Gareth.
Andy was introduced via spouses who work together who came along as an invited guest, to a members and partners night, he just kept coming and is now well into the social scene. Welcome, Andy.
Gareth was a dormant contact on Russ’ NCT group phone list. Years on, now that the kids a bit older he is embracing the local lad social aspect very, very well. He’s a popular carpool member having access to 7-seater, but tonight he was a passenger – he received our welcome-quarter-yard of ale and as any Welshman, the beer disappeared in one. Welcome, Gareth.
If you are interested in seeing what Round Table is all about for yourself. Our doors are open.
We are the largest club for young men aged 18-45 in the world. Just get in touch in our contact-Caterham-Table-page, we’ll do the rest.
Or if you live elsewhere, the RTBI website. You really can #DoMore when you #DiscoverRoundTable
Visiting Caterham in their tour bus for a day, Glenn took time out form his duties at Computer Solutions and Andy Parr, the chairman of Caterham Festival did a great piece with the presenter.
Glen, covered how great he finds being involved with Caterham Round Table and other groups in the area. A master stroke was that they were in the outside the Soper Hall, so managed to do a 2-minute shameless plug for the Caterham Beer festival, returning again this year on 17th and 18th November. Thanks Glen! We will see you at the Beer Festival in November.
So the Caterham Festival’s most popular event was on again, and Caterham Round Table lads get stuck in.
The Street Party on Caterham on the Hill, sees all three shopping streets closed to traffic, with music stages and entertainment.
The Sun was shining, and Caterham Round Table decided to borrow a candy floss machine. The business model is always flawed as most of the Tabler’s kids were keen to learn how to use it, then make more floss for themselves, while we chat and enjoy a beverage. Never mind.
The purpose for us is to be in the pubic eye and provide an opportunity for Caterham lads aged 18-45 to introduce themselves and ask about where we meet, what we do, then arrange to attend as a guest to give it a go. [Why they keep asking about special handshakes, we’re not sure. That’s not us, that’s another organisation]
5pm is Round Table’s time-to-shine when it is “Street foam” time. Night clubs are small fry, cos we fill the whole street with foam. Boom!
