LETTERS: Men and women club together

From Mr Robert F Newell Sir: Vicky Ward states that it is not only the Oxford and Cambridge, but almost all the London Clubs that are impervious to society and that most women don't really give a fig about joining London's clubland. I would have to disagree as, of the 51 clubs that form the Association of London Clubs, there are at least 12 that accept women as full members. The Royal Over-Seas League, of which I am the Secretary, has thousands of clubbable women members who share the facilities with their clubbable gentlemen counterparts in perfect harmony. I am sure this applies also to the other clubs where they are welcomed as full members.

Etc ..: Spanking clubs

Private CP (corporal punishment) parties do happen in and around London, but are strictly invitation only. Expert advice (don't ask) suggests hanging out at a few of the more mainstream fetish clubs listed should result in an invitation to a perfectly spanking do.

Unsung Resorts: Try Hinterglemm

SAALBACH and Hinterglemm, neighbours with a large, shared circuit of skiing in the amiable Austrian mountains near Kitzbuhel, merged their identities a few years ago in preparation for jointly hosting the 1991 World Championships. Saalbach always comes first (first in their shared double-barrelled name, first as you drive up the valley), yet Hinterglemm would be my preference. Saalbach has the better nightlife, but Hinterglemm has direct access to the excellent north-facing skiing on Zwolferkogel, and less queue-prone access to the rest. Its nursery slopes get less sun than those of slightly lower Saalbach, which is an advantage for most of the season. And the construction of a tunnel removing valley traffic from the village centre has made it a much more pleasant place to stroll around. To clinch the matter, prices here are lower than in more fashionable Saalbach.
