While our October social at the Kenilworth Hotel in Bloomsbury was not expected to break records, it proved a very pleasant, relaxed and lively evening where everyone stayed late - always a good sign! The staff are very friendly and helpful here, adding to the good atmosphere. The dinner was very good and reasonably priced, and one advantage here is that the restaurant and bar areas converge. There were plenty of very comfortable seats in the latter, encouraging us to converse well into the evening.

The record number of SATS members who dusted off their DJ and fixed their black tie for a dinner at the distinguished Travellers Club on October 12th were in for a treat. The dinner was arranged in the large and beautiful Library, and the club had laid on generous amounts of Champagne to welcome us, with their excellent wine flowing freely throughout the meal. No wonder the group pictured (left) look so delighted!

Black tie events and visits to Londonís traditional gentlemenís clubs are both very popular activities for our members, and a combination of the two is especially appreciated. The Travellers Club was founded in 1819 and has been in its present Pall Mall location since 1832, situated between the Athenaeum and Reform Clubs, with which it shares a large garden. The club has a very good reputation for its catering and did us proud on this convivial occasion, illustrated (left).

We were off to a bright start to our September Social with an excellent and well-attended dinner (left) in the 'Lampery' restaurant of the Apex City of London Hotel in Seething Lane.
We moved later to the comfortable adjoining bar lounge, and chatted happily there for the rest of the evening, reflecting once again that City of London hotels often provide better value than their West End equivalents. Seething? We were very far from disgruntlement!

The large party which flew from London to Bucharest on September 14th for a fiveĖday visit to Romania was in for a treat! Meticulously planned by Shonn, a young and active member of SATS, who was originally from that country (pictured left), our whirlwind tour took in a vast palace, two famous castles, a house owned by Prince Charles, a ride by horse and cart, and many other sights, accompanied by numerous meals, formal and informal. We were off to a good start as Shonn had chosen a superb hotel, the Marriott Grand in Bucharest, and we dined al fresco in a beautiful wooded garden restaurant that evening.
