    Summer BBQ 2018

    4:00 - 9:00 pm

    barbeque-explosionDate: Sunday, 28 January 2018

    Time: From 4pm wet, windy, snowing, or fine, cover is provided

    Venue: Derek’s place. Check your email from Robin in January for the address.

    Entry fee: This is a no fee event, but it is BYO wine. We ask members and guests to contribute by providing a salad (even number houses) or dessert (odd number houses) sufficient for about 8 people.


    This is a No Charge event but please be aware it is BYO in terms of the wine you bring. Wine is pooled so the people can share their nice wines with others who appreciate the variety. We would ask people not to take wine away to individual tables as this limits access to wines that people might want to try. Remember though that the Club provides no wine for this event so ensure that you bring enough if you think the summer heat will make you thirsty.

    We have noted in recent years that newer members have not always attended this event. I encourage you to do so. The weather does not matter, the venue has covered outdoor areas to suit any occasion, including rain.

    The BBQ is a great opportunity to mix and mingle so please think seriously about attending.

    Anne asks you to bring any screw caps along that you have been collecting over the holiday period. We know you haven’t been drinking the wine yourselves but family and friends can really get through the stuff, can’t they?

Drinking and driving

Members will be aware of the lowering of drink/drive limits from December 2014. If unsure read the Land Transport Amendment Act (no 2) 2014. We ask members to be conscious of these limits.

For those driving, water and some food are provided or think about a designated driver, taxi, uber or dial-a-driver to get you home safely.

Wine bottle screw caps

Save and bring them to the next monthly meeting.

Anne is collecting them to give to the Lions organised Kidney Kids support group.

No food lids or beer tops, please.
