South West: Christmas lunch
1st December 2018 @ 12:30 pm - 5:00 pm
Its Nearly Christmas – Already!
December the 1st saw 47 eager WOA SW members anticipating Christmas lunch, in the elegant dining room of the Exeter Golf Club. And a fine choice of venue it proved to be; not only was it easy to find and to park, but the food was delicious and beautifully presented. In fact let me say again how delicious lunch was and well done to Sue for finding it.
Once called to lunch the dining room was quickly abuzz with happy conversation, crackers pulled, paper hats on heads and the screaming balloons being set off, with not too many left dangling from the light fittings.
After lunch Barbara thanked the staff and awarded Gwendolyn the photo prize for her photo entitled “Sailing into the Sunset”, which Jim had kindly judged the winner. With only two entries this year the other entry from Charles came in a very close second. It served as a good nudge to us all to enter our photos next year for a chance of wining a prize.
And then began the raffle. I’m sure Chris Strang would be the first to agree it proved to be the strangest of raffle draws. Not only was Marguerite’s one of the first tickets out, but somehow every one of Chris’s numbers seemed to be a winner, only to be hastily re-drawn of course! A generous £116 was raised for the Jubilee Sailing Trust.
Chris then updated us all on various topics that had been discussed at National level and that might affect people’s plans for the coming year.
A very pleasant lunch was finished off with coffees and we left looking forward to the fitting out weekend in February, which sadly is already full.
