2017 Australia Day Celebrations

Australia Day celebrations started two days early at TWBC when fifty - five members joined together to celebrate what makes our country great. The day had a special meaning for all who attended as we reflected throughout the day on the fact that we are so privileged to call Australia home. The soaring temperatures became so excessive that play was abandoned after only eight ends, with all returning to enjoy the air conditioned comfort of our club. Here we enjoyed ' Good Old Aussie Trivia'  presented by our Quiz Mistress Secretary , Lynne Wagner, as we admired our surroundings.These had been decorated in true Aussie colours by our hard working social committee , so capably led by Lorraine Murphy. Lunch was Aussie style consisting of a sausage sandwich and tasty lamingtons accompanied by a drink... or two! We all felt proud of what we had achieved as members of our great club and  as a nation. We look forward to the exciting challenges which we will be presented with in 2017. Congratulations are due to Tess Koutsellis, Di Whittaker and Betty Fardy who were the overall winners of the day.
