2016 Christmas Gathering

Another successful event held at Willowbrook Farm. Willowbrook managers, Bill and Lil did an awesome job of making sure the club was well looked after. The location was ideal for hosting a large group such as ours. Most of the attendees camped for 2 nights beginning on Friday. The Christmas BBQ dinner was held Saturday evening under the large verandah at the rear of Willowbrook farm homestead overlooking the vast lawn area.
46 adults and 9 kids attended. The afternoon began with a few games to keep the children occupied. Happy hour was had on the lawn before Father Christmas arrived riding on a big red tractor driven by a familiar looking elf. Santa did a tour of the caravan park handing out icy poles to the many other children in the camp ground before arriving at our gathering where he delighted our kids with gifts. He the handed out secret santa presents to the adults. After Santa’s departure the BBQs were fired up for the evenings dinner party. A vast array of salads and deserts were available for everyone to enjoy.
Rain appeared just after everyone had settled under the verandah for dinner, which lead to a mad scramble to collect the chairs and other items left on the lawn from happy hour. But the rain failed to dampen any spirits. A well received thank-you speech was given by President Peter for the work Karen and all the helpers put into organising the event.
The following morning we were all treated with the traditional generous servings or scones, jam and cream provided by Bill and Lil.
Thanks to everyone who attended for your help in preparing and running the evening dinner. It makes the whole event much more enjoyable when everyone lends a hand. Special thanks to Santa and his elf for making the kids day.
