    Mid-year dinner - Trade Kitchen

    7:00 - late

    Venue: Trade Kitchen, Directions
    Entry fee: Members & guests $65.00

    Please complete the June 2019 Payment Advice and bring alone at our next meeting or email back to Wayne.

    Amazing response for the July dinner this year.  A total of 52 members and partners will be attending.  We do not have attendance statistics throughout the Club’s history but we do know that this is the best response for either a July or December dinner in the last 15 years.  Well done everyone.

    As you have previously studied the menu and decided on your orders there is no point going over the details again.  Also, the list is closed as this is the maximum group that the Kitchen can handle. Still with these numbers there can’t be anyone missing out who wants to be there.

    Please note that the start time is 7.00 pm for a 7.30 sit down.  Please don’t turn up early, it can cause confusion at the venue.  If you are staying in town, go somewhere else for a pre-dinner drink.
