Christmas at the RQYS

Lotus Club Queensland 2017 Christmas Party

Words by Peter Upham, photos by Gloria Wade.

The Lotus Club of Queensland Christmas Party was held this year at the Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron, in the Girdis Room at their impressive complex.

Seventy-two members and family attended the lunch, and by all reports everyone enjoyed the event, which was very well catered for by RQYS. The weather was perfect, if a little warm, and the view from our venue, over the rigging lawn to the hundreds of yachts in the marina, was magnificent.

Scott Robinson from Lotus Cars Queensland brought along the Evora 400, which was displayed on the rigging lawn in front of the Girdis Room, along with his flag and one from LCQ, and Tony Smith’s Evora, just to make sure that RQYS members at the club that day knew who we were.

Scott also brought some very smart Lotus Cars Queensland caps, which were a popular handout to guests.

The Recliners once again entertained us with music that was perfect for the occasion, although unfortunately Vyvyan was overseas so the trio became a duo.

A special thanks to Norma and Peter for organising this wonderful event.

Merry Christmas to all.
