    Background

    “The best laid schemes o’ mice and men gang aft agley” - Robert Burns

    Indeed, as Robbie was well aware, the best laid plans often go astray and they have gone astray again for us this month. Unfortunately, because of changes at Auburn, they are unable to attend. Other options have been pursued but we have been unable to get a suitable replacement. 

    This does however give us an opportunity to use the Club’s cellar for the purpose it was designed. This Wednesday we will sample some of our cellar stock including: 

    • 2012 Waimea Sauvignon Blanc 
    • Haythornthwaite Rose
    • 2010 Esk Valley Chenin Blanc
    • 2010 Esk Valley Verdelho
    • 2010 Shot in the Dark Cab Sav/Shiraz
    • 2006 Rufus Stone Heathcote Shiraz 
    • 2012 Alpha Domus Barnstormer Syrah 

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.
