We had a great attendance with nearly all our club attending with our partners. Good to see everyone come along to what turned out to be a very interesting night. Big thank you to Bob and Lynne Smyth for organizing the night. Dinner was great and thank you to the team in the kitchen and our tour guides for the night.
