Our club formed simply because 3 couples liked to meet for a drink at the local pub on a Sunday afternoon and we set a time of 4 o’clock so we didn’t miss each other. For over a year after Founding on Sunday 25 March 2007 the S.A.D.C.A.T.S. met every Sunday at The Saxon Inn, Child Okeford, Dorset at 4pm or phoned the Landlord with their apologies. At that time a turnout of 83% or above was regularly achieved. Sadly, attendance at our original meeting place dwindled. By 2011 some of us had moved, and while still meeting regularly, the venue had changed. But like SIBA itself we have kept our original logo ~ Once a SADCAT, always a SADCAT!
So, our mission now is to meet whenever we can for a drink, continue to organise pub crawls, and report our exploits via The Tour Journals, with detailed reviews of the Pubs and Beers in our own Pub Directory.
We believe the best way to achieve this goal is to keep in touch, organize more crawls and encourage like minded friends to join us along the way!

Returning from our 1st little adventure, the

photo for the Historical Records.

our Site as it was
I designed our site for viewing via Internet Explorer 7(& above) and on a 17" or 19" wide screen (although most pages scale to monitor size). Other browsers distort our page layouts and that's probably because I built the site using Microsoft Web Expression2. So I blame Microsoft for that and I have no idea how to fix it.
BUT, our page Banner contains fonts that make up our Registered Logo, as per our Calling Card (see Pub Directory page). Some headings also use other non-standard fonts. These can all be safely downloaded from the attached zip file by clicking on the button below. Thank you, and enjoy! Bob
