What a great night it was. Our first big occasion at the Otaihanga Boating Club, and the place was decorated and buzzed with festive spirit.
Huge thanks to many people for making it all happen – Debbie Ayres (in particular), Stuart Ayres (including for photos), Nick Ayres, Karyn Crocker, Ian Linning, Jenny Gordon, Peter Beddek, Roy Opie from OBC, and also those who helped up afterwards including Murray Woolcock. The caterers “Before & Afters” put on a splendid meal.
Thank you Simon Woolf, for once again being the MC and judging the “best of year” competition, and for your long-time support and friendship over many years for our club/society.
And now … the envelopes please.
