SOCIAL SUCCESS ON MELBOURNE CUP EVE 2016 – Doncaster Bowling Club
At very short notice the Social Committee organised a three hour get-together on Cup Eve. Over 70 people brought so much food to share. The main table was groaning with sandwiches, dips, tarts, scones and fresh fruit. To top that off, a trolley was wheeled around with hot sausages and onions in bread.
Two sweeps were drawn. First the Phantom one, and then towards the end of the night the real one for Cup Day. Beth Reid did a wonderful job of organising this evening…..What a bright spark she is! She was assisted by Maurice Ryan, who was the sausage chef, and new member Elizabeth who helped sell the sausages. Also thanks to Sandy, Eileen, Fran and Brian Garrett for organising the sweeps, and Bob Urquhart and Geoff Bandy for the music.
Winners of the Phantom sweep were, Alan Smith, Sandy McDonald, Lou Anastassiou and Italo Moro.
Then on Cup Day lucky Lou was a winner again, this time with Almandine in first place. Bert Jackson had Heartbreak City in second place, Peter Lucknow had Hartnell in third, and Peter Letos the booby prize with Rose of Virginia……..Lyn.
