Stornoway Round Table gearing up for 2012

Stornoway Round Table is already gearing up for 2012 by opening its doors to new members in the run up to its busiest season.

aAs men across Scotland put away the barbeques, golf clubs and football boots, the organisation is firing up an early recruitment drive to give locals a new way to spend the winter months.

Whether they are organising major firework displays, working with BBC Children in Need or simply arranging a seriously big Christmas party, Round Tablers know how to brighten up those long dark days.

Jason Thomson, vice president of Round Table, said: “With children back at school, adults returning to work after the holidays, and many sports seasons drawing to a close, history shows that men typically look for new social activities during the winter months.

“As we’ve experienced a rather short summer this year, we’re kicking off our recruitment drive early to combat the lower temperatures and shorter days scuppering the after work plans of many blokes.”

Round Table offers a wide range of social and sporting activities, often on a week night, such as go-karting, abseiling, shooting and tractor racing.

To make it easier for men to find out more about getting involved with their local table, the organisation has also released a dedicated new members’ contact to help with the process,

Jason continued: “Round Table is all about providing a fun and relaxed environment where men from all walks of life can socialise and get involved in a huge range of team activities and trips.

“We’re welcoming anyone who’s interested in joining to go along to their local Table and see what it’s all about. The more, the merrier!”
