We once again celebrate Bastille Day (July 14) with our French Night at the Monday Mainstream club. Great to see everyone dressed in French colours and berets and stage decorated to suit. Gustav Eiffel would be proud.
To top it off a supper that was “Magnifique” – croissants, tarts and much much more.
Thanks everyone for your support – the atmosphere was lovely. Merci beaucoup!
Somehow we found some time to sit and eat civilised like!

Thanks to Diana Waters for the photos and video.
Our annual Pancake Night was well supported again and we managed to successfully integrate teaching of learners and intermediate dancers, Mainstream dancing and the flip’n’catch that is the joy of pancakes. The Pancake King crew – Scott and Kaye – doing a marvellous job and Scott has perfected the art of flipping these babies. Pity we all haven’t necessarily mastered the art of catching them!!

Happy New Year everyone! Our first theme night for 2017 was our annual Aussie Night and BBQ tea to celebrate the occasion of Australia Day (Jan 26th). Great crowd and all enjoyed a dinner of BBQ meats and salads followed by Pavlovas.
Dancing to Australian music and songs and many dancers nicely decked out in green and golds and blue, whites and reds.
Thanks to all who helped set up and pack away not only for the BBQ but also all the decorations. The hall looked wonderful.

Another year rolls by and we celebrated with a Movie and Musicals theme. Thanks to so many who came along and helped us celebrate. So many did dress for the occasion and the hall looked great – Oscars, movie slide show and posters, not to mention the three usherettes bringing popcorn, lollies and chips.
Big thanks to Peter (Scotty) Scott, Les Tulloch, Jeff Seidel, John Casey and Ian Rutter for joining us on the program and to Thelma McCue for cueing rounds.
Congratulations to our 10 year life membership recipients and Laurie – a 20 year Gold Membership award.

Thanks to the team of helpers who set up the hall decorations and dining arrangements.
