It was so nice to be able to hold an end of season function, after a 3year hiatus. I would like to thank Kristine and her team at The Boat Shed, who set up the room beautifully. Blue lights, candles, table clothes plus white chair covers and serviettes, finished off with blue balloons blown up and tied together by Emma Pizzey. Thank you Emma.
The food was delicious and there was plenty to go around. Thank you Lisa Speedie for doing up the Fruit Platters, they were very nice.
Our Lucky Door Prize which was a hockey stick donated by HockeyWorld was won by Tyler Peachey.
