The December 2019 meeting, because of its' proximity to Christmas was held on the first Friday in January. This meeting has traditionally been hosted by The Major, at the Officer's Mess and the 2020 meeting was no exception.

Above are the chaps (well most of them) - Sticky, Brillo and Sweeney were absent. I think now the only time we wear DJs is for this SPORTS Mess Meeting and fortunately they still fit. Prior to the meeting, The Major asked us to go back to the 80s and bring mementoes or recount tales from that period. Most folks had taken the sensible approach to storing junk over the last 40 years and thrown it all away, but there were enough remnants to moisten the eyes.

The nibbles included lots of 80s favourites, and the wine included Chianti (with its' raffie wrapping) and Black Tower. Thanks Major - an excellent effort.

SPORTS - The Society for the preservation of Old Round Tablers welcomes you to our web site, although it probably won't make a lot of sense unless you know something about Round Table.

Many years ago we were all members of the finest table in Area 1 - Fareham 194. The fellowship and fun were just amazing. So when we got booted out at the tender age of 40, after our extra President's honorary year and whatever else we could wangle, a group of us decided we needed a little more than a Monday night half of mild with 41 Club, and so in 1986 SPORTS was born.

We meet on the last Friday of each month to wine, dine and reminisce. We take voluntary turns to host at our homes. We have not missed a single meeting since 1986. Our motto "In Vino Morbifuge" says it all.
