2022- Beaumaris Motor Yacht Squadron
Our two major Club events in December and June are always joyous occasions which are attended by most Club members and partners.
This year was special because it was our Club’s 35th anniversary, because Ralph Butcher 104 years old attended and because it was the first time our new Choir, the Bayside Notes had performed.
Our bike group members made a special presentation of a painting to leader Ken Beadle. The painting was of Ken riding his bike and was done by Derek Skues who is also Choir master.
Our 17 Choir members sang lustily and received an encore. The conductor was Margie Beadle and the accompanist Gwen Rand. President Simon presented flowers in appreciation. Having so many of our members singing made the event inclusive.
Our free raffle was organised by Kevin and Rhonda Reed. Presents were beautifully presented. Allan Stone walked away with the main prize. Lucky Allan. It was held at Beaumaris Motor Yacht Squadron which is a beautiful venue
2021- Woodlands Golf Club
President Chris Renwick opted for Woodlands Golf Club this year. Over 150 members and partners booked and 145 attended on the day which is a Club record.
This year was special as we celebrated Aub Gambles 100th birthday. His daughters Robyn and Helen and son Drew attended. Roger Wilson interviewed Aub. Lloyd Jenkins wrote a special poem.
We had entertainment from the superb Stiletto Sisters who played Gypsy music which was very well received. We had the usual raffles and prizes and altogether it was a great event
