Last weeks meeting

Bottle Auction- Otaihanga Boating Club

Another good turnout for the annual bottle auction.
The settled weather over the country made for a beautiful evening at the Otaihanga boating club  and an enjoyable and relaxed evening was had by all those attending.
Our auctioneer Peter Ware as per normal was very entertaining and through his efforts and the generosity of the  club members we raised $2400 on the night. Awesome job Peter thanks!

Eddie one of the biggest bidders -Thanks to his proxy Roger Sowry, who we were led to believe invested wisely.
Murray and Chris famous jams and marmalade keenly sought 
Harbour City Funerals special magnums went for highest bid.
Malcolm Leaming on behalf of the Life Education Trust received a cheque for $5000 which was very much  appreciated.
Look forward to doing all again next year
Thanks once again to all those members who contributed to the auction
