Annual Dinner Wrap

Thank you to our mem­bers who sup­port­ed the Club Din­ner on Sat­ur­day night. It was great to see such a cross sec­tion of our club com­mu­ni­ty all togeth­er and hav­ing a good time. Con­grat­u­la­tions to all award nom­i­nees and recip­i­ents. (View the nom­i­nees and win­ners in the pre­sen­ta­tion HERE.)

An event like this would not be pos­si­ble with­out the col­lec­tive assis­tance from our mem­bers – we’d like to THANK every­one who helped with set up – and helped make the room look sim­ply spec­tac­u­lar, also, pack up (for those who recov­ered from a late night suf­fi­cient­ly enough to help put the club back to it’s nor­mal self, espe­cial­ly the mums on Moth­ers Day!), hope­ful­ly cap­tur­ing all names: Ali, Ali­son, Aman­da, Angela, Cal­ven, Char­lotte, Chrissie, Cindy, Dawn, Glen­da, Glynne, Jacky, James, Jeff, Jen­ny, Josh, JP Doo­ley, Julie, Kat­ri­na, Kay, Kirsten D., Kirsten F., Louise, Michelle, Natal­ie, Nis­sa, Noel, Pen­ny, Sian, Stu­art and Zara. (When we packed up on Sun­day we were 4 vas­es miss­ing and a few bal­loon weights, if these made their way home with any­one, please can they be returned to the office asap, they were bought with the inten­tion of using in the future, thank you.)

Thanks to Dawn Jones (coor­di­nat­ing the team), Pen­ny Fort­mann (who did most of the hard work lead­ing up to the event so that the rest of us could have a great time), Karen Oliv­er and Jen Ducasse (invi­ta­tions and han­dling all the enquiries in the office) and Sandy Clarke (behind the scene stuff) for their efforts in the lead up to the event. On the night a thank you to Jeff David­son our MC (and Life Mem­ber) – for keep­ing the evening tick­ing along and enter­tain­ing us on the way, Kirsten Fort­mann – for the smooth process of hand­ing out the tro­phies, bar staff Rob and Jacqui McGre­gor, Trevor Bul­ley and Mandy Brooks – a big ask on a big night!
