Socially Speaking – January 2013

February 5th, 2013. Submitted by webmaster.

We finished off 2012 with a fabulous Christmas Dinner at the Royal Adelaide Golf Club. A great night of club fellowship and Trophies presented to their worthy recipients but best of all was the venue, the food and the service. The Royal Adelaide Gold Club knows how to host a great evening. Which brings me to the question of where do we hold our Christmas dinner this year? I surveyed about 20 people during and after the event and all but 1 strongly recommend we stay there. In the words of Life Member Tom Long, ‘If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!’  Thanks must go to Sue Gibson for organising such a great night.

The New Year started with our January casual meeting which was a good chance for the fellows to have a good chat and a beer, and the girls likewise had a natter with their gelato and coffee at CIBO’s.

Which brought us to last night’s Annual Ice Cream run to Noonies Café at Semaphore.  About 50 members, friends, and family enjoyed a great evening run finishing along the coast line timed perfectly for the sun set. The Café provided us with reasonable food and of course lots of ice cream! A good night was had by all.

February brings the All British Day with a very strong club representation of what promises to be a great event at our new venue – the Echunga Oval.

The annual MSCA Presentation Picnic will this year be held at the Mylor Oval on the 17th February.  Mylor Oval is a very picturesque setting in our beautiful Adelaide Hills so should provide for a great club display.  This is a BYO event. Look for details in advert from Rick in this Trak.

March club run on the 17th will be to Tenafeate Creek Winery at One Tree Hill. We have been to this venue once before and thoroughly enjoyed their food (wood oven pizza, Brushetta) wines and the stunning views.  I still recall Chuck and Dianne Falzon filling the back of the Roadster with cartons of wine!

February Birthday greetings to: Maree Staehr, Frankie Merritt, Joan Bowman, Cameron Elsdon and Neil Martin.

Till next time.
