DEC — Xmas breakup

So a cou­ple of months ago with a bit of help and encour­age­ment, from my good mate With the pre­vi­ous night’s wild weath­er still on our minds as to what it may do today Kay and I arrived at the club rooms at 9.15. and began to set up for our Xmas breakup, Rod and Sharon arrived soon after­wards and we set up the tables out­side. I unlocked the garage doors and both Rod, and I decid­ed to wait for some younger mus­cle pow­er to lift the garage door as we both suf­fer old folks’ aches and pains, with that Bruce and Bren­ton arrived and raised the door.

After some debate on the best loca­tion for the BBQ trail­er it was final­ly set up along with Santa’s Gaze­bo. More peo­ple start­ed arriv­ing and the ladies start­ed sort­ing out the food and set­ting up the tables in side hall.

We also took advan­tage of the open garage and more helpers to move our excess tables and chairs into the garage in prepa­ra­tion for the pend­ing hall ren­o­va­tions. As we can safe­ly use the garage now that we have evict­ed the locale wild life.

At about mid­day with more folks arriv­ing we start­ed up the BBQ, Derk had pur­chased the meat from his local butch­er and as usu­al it was great. Burg­ers, snags and Aldo’s favourite mar­i­nat­ed steak. As Pete Cor­ri­g­an was light­ing the BBQ Janine’s youngest son Eden asked if he could help, he did not have to ask twice and with Pete Char­man as his men­tor using his teach­ing skills the three of us got stuck into the cook­ing, with Allen Del­zop­po also assist­ing and clean­ing up the BBQ plate after­wards we had it all done.

Every­one went inside to col­lect their lunch from the tables of numer­ous sal­ads and meat. A spe­cial thanks to Pete and Aden for doing the Lions share, well done guy’s.

With the weath­er hold­ing we all enjoyed a great lunch. Then it was time for San­ta he turned up bell ring­ing and lots of HO HO HO’S and his bag of presents for the lit­tle ones who joined him sit­ting in his chair to get their Xmas present. San­ta then assist­ed by his helper Pete Cor­ri­g­an hand­ed out lol­ly bags to the ladies and to some of the Guy’s that had been good!!.

Well after San­ta it was time for dessert and we had a brief rain show­er, so we went into the hall to enjoy the sweets. We then had our door prices raf­fle tick­et draw, there were some love­ly large ham­pers put togeth­er by Janine from some very nice donat­ed items, along with some very nice small­er ham­pers sort­ed by the ladies. Every­one seemed to enjoy the event.

Then we returned out­side to join in some games, with Rod and Rob organ­is­ing the Hub Cap Toss­ing and the younger ones enjoy­ing the egg and spoon rac­ing. There were prizes for the win­ners and with the Hub Cap Toss­ing lots of the ladies got very com­pet­i­tive that made for a fun event to watch.

Well it had been a long day and we start­ed to pack up with every­one help­ing and so end­ed anoth­er great club event. Thank you to every­one that assist­ed in set­ting up for today and mak­ing such a suc­cess 30 free spins no deposit required keep what you win.

Have a hap­py and safe Xmas and new year, and with the excep­tion of those mem­bers going to the Nation­als we will see you again in the new year.

Jim and Kay.
