Christmas Party 2017
Over 40 members and guests attended a very enjoyable Christmas Party on Sat 2nd Dec. See below for a selection of photos to get a flavour of the occasion. Or click on this link to get access to the YouTube video created by Olga Nebot.

Our special thanks go to the Social Sub Committee of Pam Somerville, Louis Miller, and Marianne Shaw for organising and delivering the festivities. And the committee acknowledges the help from Midori Matsuoka in preparing the food, Stephen Brown, Ian Taylor, and David McCallum for staffing the bar (and Ian for running repairs on the power supply), and Katrina McNamara, Peter Shaw, and Nell Cranfield for helping clear up

NB – The party focussed on the social occasion, so the Club Awards were held over. We are looking to hold a separate ceremony in February after the holidays.

Clockwise from top left – Our working social committee team put the final touches to the evening’s refreshments, President, Luke Keller, addresses the throng, Ed and David M pose only to be outdone by  more engaging and photogenic Nell Cranfield (with husband, John).
Clockwise from top left. Treasurer and bar tender, Stephen Brown, dispenses his usual Christmas cheer, our volunteers under Pam Somerville prep the evening’s menu, Xi Jiang (R) and guest Brian, photographer for the evening, Olga Nebot and Midori Matsuoka.

Further Donations
Furthermore, the Club would also like to thank members who have contributed various electric goods and articles to the club of late (including some exotic liquors for the bar’s cocktail collection.)

So, if  members are ‘ de-cluttering’ and have some of those esoteric beverages that seemed like a good idea at the time but have rested in the cupboard ever since or just items (e.g. utensils, tools, kitchen appliances etc.) that they are planning to dispose of but which are still, we politely emphasise, in good working order and would be of benefit to the Club please let any Committee member know and if appropriate we’ll try to find a place for them.
