Australia Day Tournament was a Beaut!

The weather was typical of our Australian summer, the mercury hit 37 degrees however no one was deterred from their quest for the “prize”.

KOALASAURUS’ RULE – The winning team was made up of Sam, Max and Tom Bell, Ryan and Richard Kingston (with Helen supporting), Michelle Rohrlack, Adam Teague and Tracy Findlay. All played fantastic tennis and were duly rewarded with a fantastic bag of goodies!! So lucky!

The Quiz was won by Team Ace – obviously our most knowledgeable team on the day.

Best Dressed Female was Vicki Leunig and Best Dressed Male was Daniel Milligan. Both of these club personalities dressed in true blue Aussie costumes and helped to create a great atmosphere for our Australian Day.

I feel the day was a great success as everyone seemed to enjoy the tennis, the atmosphere and of course the great food and socialising into the evening – I think we closed the doors of the club at about 9.30 pm – tired but happy.

I would like to thank the following people without whom the day would not have run so smoothly:

Daniel The MC for the day
June, Jill, Carolyn Decorations and food preparation
Carolyn Pavlova preparation
Les Bar, food preparation, cleaning up
Richard Dishwasher
Steven Salad preparation
Phil BBQ, making the potato dish

Eleanor Bar and Quiz designer
Helen Bar

Special thanks to Peter and Karen Gilchrist for the preparation of the salads and management of the BBQ dinner.

Thanks to all players and family and friends for attending, supporting this tournament and playing in great community and family spirit – I look forward to next year.
