Club Prize Giving Dinner 2009 Huge Success

Posted 11 years, 4 months ago    0 comments

Another year, another prize giving, and this year's was a cracker. Thanks to everyone who came along, the clubhouse was full to capacity.

Notable events:

  • An amazing 4 course feast, with nibble starters, chicken soup entré, beef and veg main course, followed by fly cemetery puddings, custard, fruit and icecream.
  • Guest speaker for the evening was ex club member and budding water-colour artist Tom Shanks, who brought along a gallery of work for his first ever public showing. He also gave an interesting talk on how to get into water-colour painting. Thanks heaps Tom, and congrats to the lucky owners of new paintings. View Tom's work online at tomshanks.co.nz.
  • Tim gave a presentation of his recently developed project, WentFlying.com pilot logbook system, that lets us glider pilots record our flying history. Check it out at wentflying.com!

Thanks again Jan for a wonderful feast. More details on the award winners coming soon.

Prize winners, Neil Raymoond, Tim Bromhead, Robin Briton and Bill Mace. Absent: Joan Wine,
