That’s a wrap!
Well what a celebratory mood we found ourselves in!
LCQ Christmas Party at The Greek Club. 30/11/2019.
LCQ December 2019 Meeting. 03/12 2019
By Dick Reynolds.
Saturday 30th November found us turning up at The Greek Club, 39 Edmonstone Street, South Brisbane for our annual Christmas bash. And goodness what a bash it proved to be.
About 60 turned up for an LCQ subsidised meal and drinks evening, and boy did they “turn it up”.
Special thanks to The Greek Club who turned on a magnificent feed of Greek food as only they can do. The salads were brilliant and the roast lamb to die for. Followed by an icecream desert I’m told, but I missed it – too involved in some hilarious conversation to partake – typical of the evening!
The drinks flowed all evening with everyone imbibing in our usual measured way.
There were a few door prizes also, if I remember correctly. Nick Contarino, Gail Hart, and Mike Goodfellow all scoring the goods. Heaps of new faces and loads of old ones talked all evening and all agreed “what a bloody great night”!
As if that wasn’t enough, we backed up the evening with our December Club Meeting and Awards Night the following Tuesday 3rd December.
And once again, “what a bloody great night”!
The committee turned on the usual pizza, but souped it up in typical Lotus style with calamari, roast chicken, garlic bread and beer, wine and soft drink.
Loads of the usual chat, spiced up with a bit of tucker and drink, was followed by a short but sweet general meeting, enhanced by the introduction of some new members.
We welcome you to the fray!
It’s been a very eventful year, as the awards presentations declare.
Giles Cooper receiving the Achievement Award for his restoration of the Peking to Paris Healey. The Competition Point Score going to Paul Stokel for taking out the Australian Targa Championship. And last but not least, Geoff Noble receiving the Clubman Award for his efforts as motorsport coordinator and ongoing enthusiasm with the clubs charity to communities in need.
Given the success of the two evenings, we can only assume the Club is in fine form, handled by fine people and can look forward to a great year next 2020.
Happy Christmas to you all and all the best for the New Year.
Drive safe and we’ll see you in 2020.
