5.45pm, Friday 9th February
Macleay Park, Belmore Road, North Balwyn (Melway 46 C5)
Our first Social Event for 2018 will, once again, be our ever-popular Barbecue.
Bring your wife, partner, family and friends – the more the merrier! Enjoy the fun and fellowship with a picnic meal and perhaps a glass of wine. BYO meat and salad, cooking equipment, table, chairs, glasses, etc.
WE HOPE WE WILL SEE YOU THERE!
In past years we have met in January, but the weather has not been good (Probably Global Cooling). Last year we met in February, so in 2018 we will again try for a summer’s night in February.
Members, partners, friends, and guests have the opportunity to enjoy a number of one-day and half-day outings during the year.
Most – the whole-day outings – are bus trips, while for local outings, members usually drive to the venue or take public transport.
In recent years, members, partners and friends have travelled to Maryborough, the Hume & Hovell Cricket Ground at Strath Creek, HMAS Cerberus, Phillip Island, Marysville and Kinglake, Walhalla, Mount Macedon, Beleura at Mornington, Daylesford, Lorne, Werribee Park, Coombe Cottage, Queenscliff and Nagambie.
In addition to the bus and train trips, members, partners and friends enjoy “local” outings, e.g, tours of the Fox Classic Car Collection, Etihad Stadium, the MCG and National Sports Museum, Melbourne Park , Victoria Barracks, the Jewish Museum and Synagogue, as well as mid-year and end-of-year luncheons, and a start-of-year barbecue.
