Nerja 41 Club Donates to Taller de la Amistad

Chairman Jim Skinner and other members of 41 Club Nerja visited the new extension of the Taller de la Amistad association to donate 500 euros to help with much needed equipment.  We were greeted by a local TV crew who interviewed the staff and one of our members Ragnar who explained about our Club.  The visit was very worthwhile and enjoyed by all. We were given gifts of soap made by the association.

41 Club Nerja is made up of 45 Ex Round Tablers from 10 different Countries in Northern Europe and are always looking for new members.  We meet on the first and third Thursdays of the month.  The first sees us taking our ladies our for a menu del dia and are very popular.  On the third Thursday we have our ‘normal’ meeting for the men at the Al Andaluz in Maro near the caves.  Many of these meetings are shared with our ladies if we have good speakers or an ourt visit such as a boat trip, BBQ etc

More details can be found on nerja41club.org or ring Alfie 626998626

What’s on 35 Hashers, Six Virgins, Two Easter Eggs, One Birthday Boy and a 10K Run 

Axarquia Hash House Harriers were out in force on Easter Sunday for Run 291 which took place in the Vinuela area.  Seasoned hares  Bunyan and Routemaster set a 10K-plus trail that was mainly on good track but they threw in a few hundred olive groves,  some steep-ish valleys and a couple of ploughed fields to stop us getting too comfortable! At the end of the hash Jammy Git and F Troop, who had both just completed their 200th run, were each awarded a Cadbury’s Crème Egg. A post-hash curry put back all the calories we’d burned off, after which we celebrated Routemaster’s 68th   birthday with an excellent carrot-and-other-healthy-things cake made by our very own Null Points.

With good weather here to stay and minimal chance of rain for the coming months now is a good time to join Axarquia Hash Harriers and get fit for the summer.  Just click on Next Run for location and directions. All you need is suitable footwear and €4 per person to cover water, soft drinks, beer and crisps.  There’s always a post-hash meal, so you might also want to bring something to change into.
