Happy Christmas to all of Club Lotus Australia!
We’re off to Bombini just outside of Avoca this weekend, on Sunday the 4th of December, for our Club Christmas Party.
The running order is as follows. We’ll meet at the Thornleigh McDonald’s (all the most salubrious options explored here!) at 8:30AM for an 8:45 departure. From there we’ll take the scenic route along the Old Pacific Highway to Bombini planning a 10:30AM arrival.
If you’re coming from Newcastle and would like to join the LOST Fraternity on the way in, they’re meeting at 9am at the Shell service station on Thomas St. in Wallsend for a 9:15 departure.
Tea, coffee and biscotti will await us, giving us an opportunity to hang out and chat for a while before lunch. We’ll be ushered in to lunch at 11:45AM and the two-course meal, main and dessert, will be served at 12:00PM. By 2PM we’ll be well-fed and a few important speeches will have been made, and it’ll be home time!
Bombini have made the menu available to us, and we’ll include that below.
At time of writing we have over 40 people confirmed, with an upper limit of 80. So, if you are dithering, please decide now and drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. We need to provide the restaurant with our final numbers by Wednesday evening, the 30th of November.
We look forward to seeing you at McDonald’s for the road trip!
