Officials and 21 Club Dinner - Friday 13 March, 6.30pm
The programme this year for Aquapick Surf Life Saving Nationals
includes a dinner at Peppers Bar & Café on Friday 13
March. It will be combined
with the 21 Club members and we expect this will work
advantageously to get everyone together. Officials receive a complimentary
ticket and 21 Club will be paying their own way at $30 per
head. Those who are
both officials and members of the 21 Club will have their meal paid
for by NZ Surf. Menu
looks great so we need your RSVP for catering purposes no later
than March 1stplease.
