Lots of changes this year with a change of date, venue and caterer.
It was agreed to hold our annual presentation in the Clubhouse with the Club benefitting from the profits from the bar. The tables were expertly laid up for 60 by Marion and Gill, ably assisted by John and Peter. All the place names had been beautifully hand written by Liz and once the flowers were in place we were ready to go, with a lot more room than anyone had expected.
The weather that evening, as predicted, was wild, wet and windy but once inside with the curtains drawn we were all cosy and judging by the volume of chatter and laughter, everyone was enjoying themselves.
The homemade spread provided by Mandy of Simply Delicious was very much enjoyed.
Roy Lidington was going to be our guest speaker but with so many problems associated with moving house, he was unable to attend. A great shame as it would have been a wonderful chance for many of the members to wish him a fond farewell. Our President presented the cups to all the winners with our resident “David Bailey”, Mike Smith, taking the photos. We even had an air kiss from Chris to a virtual Pamela caught on film.
Well done to all those winners and to everyone who took part. Your competition secretaries are looking for lots more entries next year.
This is not the last event of the year with a Festive Music Quiz coming up for Friday 7th December. There are posters and sign up sheets at both the indoor and outdoor clubs so do come along and enjoy a festive get together
