Social Scene – November 2008

I am sure everyone joins me in passing on our condolences to Margie and family on the recent passing of her father.   Also we wish Bob Cini a full and speedy recovery from his recent bout of pneumonia.

The mid week run on 1st October saw 13 people partake of a very blustery drive through the hills to Hahndorf where we enjoyed lunch at the German Arms Hotel.   A few members went straight to the Hotel and joined us there.    Thanks to Peggy & Brian Argent for organising this day.

The Day of Triumph was held at Bonython Park this year and congratulations to those members who won trophies.    The trophies will be presented at the Christmas Dinner.   Thanks to all those people who assisted.

Thanks to David & Eva Treen for organising the run on 19th October which saw a large number of members enjoy a run through the southern vales, albeit a bit damp at times, to Myponga, where we had time to browse through the market before heading back to their home where we all enjoyed a BBQ lunch with salads provided by the Club and “yummy” desserts by Eva and David.

The final ladies lunch for this year is on Tuesday 11th November at Café Buongiorno at Mitcham.  Hope to see you there.

The run for the Tony Esau Memorial Trophy is on Sunday 16th November and there will be a Club sponsored BBQ at the destination.   This year’s run is set by Team Temby so come along, bring a clipboard and pen, table, chairs and drinks and enjoy a fun day out.  The winner of the trophy must be driving a Triumph.

The Christmas Dinner and Trophy Presentation is on Saturday 13th December at Royal Adelaide Golf Club, and payment in full is required by this month’s meeting please. The annual run to the Victory Hotel in December has had to be changed to Monday 29th December (advertised as Sunday 28th in Oct magazine) as the Hotel cannot accommodate us on the Sunday.   This has always been a very popular run and may the trend continue.

Please remember there will be no general meeting in December.
