At 13.00 on Tuesday 9th July 2013, a meeting was held at Bistro Bonita, Cerro Gordo, Cantoria, the object being to form an association in this area not only for submariners but anyone with a naval interest? It has been initiated by Chris Wright and John Patrick (both ex RN Submariners)
The new club will be called the ‘Albox Navy Club’ and is open to anyone with any naval connection. The club will meet monthly at Bistro Bonita, Cerro Gordo. At 13.00 on the 1st Tuesday of the month.
There were 5 naval types at the 1st meeting, with 1 apology and 1 other interested party making a starting membership of 7, which is very good considering the very short notice of the inauguration? There was a mix of both Royal Navy and Merchant Navy members and a very good first meeting took place with excellent tapas provided by Chris Wright (mine host).
The object of this new venture is to provide a monthly gathering of like-minded ex-navy men or any other interested party to ‘spin dits’ and ‘swing the odd lamp, remembering those days spent at sea. Ladies are welcome and it has been suggested that a ‘Ladies Section’ could be formed?
The next meeting will be at 13.00 on Tuesday 6th August 2013, there is no joining fee although a thought must be given to raise some form of finance?
All are welcome.
