How will our Mid-Winter Christmas work?
Our mid-year club gathering is always a fun event, with easy dances on a theme. Rod is currently hunting down dances with a Christmas theme, and hoping the Scottish Country Dancing Christmas Music CD he’s ordered will arrive from the UK in time!
6.00 – 6.30pm: We’ll socialise over a little mulled wine or fruit punch, and nibbles
6.30 – 7.30pm: We’ll enjoy our warming winter buffet main course, with BYO drinks
- for meat-eaters think slow braised lamb and Moroccan chicken
- vege-eaters will have a special meal too
- everyone will enjoy roast veges and salads
7.30 – 8.30’ish: Rod will bring us some Mid-Winter Christmas dances
8.30’ish: Time for dessert
Then – more dancing, before we pack up and head home.
Register here to book for club members and immediate family.
Email Allison to waitlist any other non-members (charged at $35 each).
