The last couple of weeks have been incredible at the club, Pub Trivia with a pint and Parmi on Thursdays with Petrice, has been keeping everyone challenged, and well fed. So if you’re out and about on Thursday night why not drop in and visit your mates.

Fridays lately have been going through the roof with a real ground swell of new people coming to check out our fantastic little club and enjoying Chef Steve's fabulous meals

Last Saturday night was the club's fundraiser for the year, and our quiz night was a great success. There were lots of people in the club with their hands deep in their pockets so thank-you to everyone that supported the event and a very special thank-you to Ann and Paul Glover for organising, Patt for keeping the questions coming and of course the wonderful bar staff, Petrice, Robby and Amy for keeping the drinks coming - everyone got much more creative with their answers as the night progressed.

Night Owls Lawn bowling has started again down at the Semaphore Bowling club on a Thursday night, and we have entered another 2 teams this year.  Everyone is welcome to come along and play or watch, teams will rotate so even if you have never played before you will be welcome to give it a go. 

The committee have a few new exciting items coming up to raise a little more interest around the club, so watch this space, or better yet call in to the club to keep up with what is happening.

Upcoming events

Next Monday (28th October) is the Bunnings BBQ, if you can give 1 hour or so to cook or sell a sausage it would be very much appreciated, these events make some much needed cash for the club and they are always a great laugh on the day.  Put your name down on the sign up sheet at the bar, or reply to this email to let us know your preferred times.

November 2nd is the Annual Armistice Dinner if you haven’t bought a ticket yet be quick it should be a good night.  The Australian Army Band will be providing music, and we are fortunate to have Group Captain Greg Weller as our speaker.  Greg is Director, Community Engagement at RAAF Edinburgh and Deputy Chair of the Epic Flight Centenary 2019 Committee. He’s also done a lot of research work on Sir Ross Smith in recent years, and as the dinner this year will be a tribute to Sir Ross Smith, and the unveiling of club memorabilia in his honor this should be a very informative and interesting discussion. 

Tickets are $55 for a 3 course meal including pre-dinner drink and are available from the bar.

Our quarterly General Meeting will be on Saturday 16 November and will also be our member's Xmas party as per normal. This year we will precede the GM with a meeting for volunteers to express our appreciation for their assistance during the year and also provide some updated training to ensure that our club remains compliant with the regulations.  Volunteer training will start at 11.00am followed by lunch at 12.00pm, Meeting at 1.00pm and Xmas party at 2.00pm.

 A full day where we hope to catch up with as many of you as possible. More details in coming blogs, but mark the date in your diary so you don't miss out.

And of course 2020 is coming up fast, so we have opened bookings for our New Years Eve celebrations.  Dinner will be available from 6.00pm and Yesterday's Heroes will provide the music to help us party into the new year.  Get in early for tickets as these will be strictly limited.

See you all at the club soon
