Happy Christmas in July, everyone!
OK, so we’re a little early in the planning, but, as with all of our most successful events, early planning gives everyone time to make decisions and secure approvals from the Finance Director. Adding to that, this frosty Sydney winter currently has me reminiscing about northern hemisphere Christmases.
This year’s Christmas Party will be held on Sunday the 6th of December, when we will be heading North to Bombini, a stunning restaurant just outside of Avoca (366 Avoca Drive, Avoca). Here, they will have a large parking area reserved for us so that we can all park together while we head inside for a delicious and social Christmas lunch.
Bombini are proposing a two course lunch, based on alternate seating, with a delicious-sounding menu of mains and desserts. Take a look at the sample menu below, although I should emphasise that this is NOT finalised, and the final menu will include a non-meat option.
CLA will subsidise all members and their partners to the usual tune, so we are asking members to pay $30 per head for this lunch; personally I think this represents great value.
Children are most welcome and there is a menu available at $15 per head for under 12s. Some sample options from the children’s menu include:
- Pasta w/Parmesan, Pasta w/Ragu
- Roast chicken w/potatoes
- Roast pork w/potatoes
- Grilled beef w/potatoes
We are constrained to 80 attendees by the room available. Given that our Christmas Parties generally enjoy this level of participation, I would suggest getting your booking in early to avoid disappointment!
To book your places ahead of the crowd please take the following two steps:
- Write to me ([email protected]) to confirm who is coming (you, your partner and any children that you would like to bring along, please)
- Deposit the princely sum of $30 per head for adults, and $15 per child (under 12) into the Club coffers – BSB 633000 Account No 144279056 with the annotation Xmas [Your Initial Your Surname]
I look forward to seeing you there!
