Annual Awards Dinner
The Backbencher Gastropub
This is the evening we give out trophies to all those Members who have been successful in various races and club events during the year. This is a big night for us and has always been hugely popular with Members.
Every year we run a charity auction and we encourage Members to bring along items to be auctioned. All proceeds go to our charity, Karahands.
We have worked with the Backbencher Gastropub to bring you a great menu at a really good price of $60 per person. This includes some wine which the club will be putting on the tables. Other drinks and additional wine will be at Member's expense. The menu can be found HERE
If you are wishing to attend please pay the dinner cost into the club account at 03 0539 0165992 00 together with your name and 'Awards Dinner'. You can, of course, pay the Treasurer when you arrive.
