Christmas in July - what a great night!!

Tuesday 21 July, 2009

Saturday July 18th saw the upstairs restaurant transformed into a fabulous festive venue after Marcia and her team of willing helpers spent the afternoon decorating the otherwise sparse looking area. Check out the photo gallery, the result was brilliant.

From 6.00pm the crowd began gathering around the bar area to enjoy the fellowship and the pre-dinner cocktails. From about 7 o'clock the gathered throng were politely ushered to their designated seats (well done Marcia) and the evening began with a fabulous buffet style dinner.

The food was beyond brilliant, a huge range of seafoods, meats and salads, enough to satisfy the most fastidious diner, the presentation and quality were exceptional. A huge thanks to the staff from "All Senses" for their efforts which were well appreciated.

With a Club record of over 70 members and friends present the stage was set for a wonderful night, and wonderful it truly was. Kim had organized a Juke Box, which lit up the dance floor until well beyond midnight (and rumour has it that Karaoke took over sometime after that). With everyone having a chance to contribute to the music choices the dance floor was very well utilized, with many Club members demonstrating some awesome dance moves (though they may not remember).

A picture is better than a thousand words, so check out the photo gallery and you'll find the equivalent of almost 80,000 words to show what a great night it truly was.
