                    ARCHIVES  EXTRA                MARGARET RIVER GETAWAY 2019

Fifty eight members headed south to spend 4 nights at 'Stay Margaret River Hotel'. This was a wonderful venue for the group and the staff could
not have been more helpful and eager to please.
The event organised so well by Ian our Social coordinator had a 70's Flower Power theme with most dressing appropriately. In fact it was hard to
recognise folk with their variety of wigs and makeup. A parade took place after dinner and prizes were awarded.
Walks had been organised for each morning but due to the inclement weather this was not popular with all members. Some prefered to spend time 
in the comfortable hotel lounge, playing board games,cards or just having a coffee and a chat or to browse shops in town.
Sausage sizzle and hamburger lunches were organised by our very capable lunches coordinator Lorraine. Because of the doubtful weather the hotel
allowed us to use their indoor quest kitchen for these meals.
A 'Happy Hour' was held each evening at 5pm followed by a delicious buffet dinner in the hotel function room.
Each evening there was entertainment, Juniper wines hosted a tasting. On Wednesday it was thinking caps on for the traditional quiz night hosted
by Professor Gordon. There was a tie for first place and the bars of Lindt Chocolate were distributed accordingly.
Thursday was Halloween and members brought out their weird and wonderful costumes and participated in a 'Murder Mystery' event. This was
presented by members of the 'OFFWA Acting Academy' who were under the guidence of writer/director Joy and led by Detective Clueless.
Much laughter and ribalt comments ensued from the audience as they tried to guess 'Who Dun it'.
So we reluctantly came to the end of our wonderful 5 days of fun and fellowship with most planning to attend the 2020 Getaway in Albany.
