          30th Anniversary /Christmas Luncheon

Geoff Lewis

The 30th Anniversary Committee met on Tuesday 7th July and discussed the type of function to be held on Monday 14th December and agreed on 70/30% 30th anniversary type function.

The meeting discussed what if the current restrictions of 1 person per 4 square meters rule still applied in December and Club Engadine advised a maximum of 60 people.

Club Heathcote functions are restricted to 97 people and they are taking bookings on the basis that Covid does not flare up again and shut the Club down. The Club’s licence is to open at 2pm on Monday’s and they suggest Wednesday is a better day when the caterer opens in the evening and would most likely be happy to start earlier. No decision has been made.

The meeting reviewed the task list and confirmed most tasks were covered, and a function could be arranged in a short timeframe. Therefore, it will schedule its next meeting for Tuesday 6th October 2020 at 1.30pm at Club Engadine RSL.
