Anniedotes – 3 June 2019

ive items for you to consider………….

1) 70th Anniversary Dinner: Saturday 29 June 5pm:

Would be good to get a few more members along to our last celebratory function of the year. We need your payment please by Friday 7th June – end of this week!


Held at Auckland Bridge Club, 273 Remuera Rd, Remuera. Parking available. Enjoy a fabulous evening including a two course dinner and a mystery gift and share some stories. The cost is $35 per person for up to 2 people per membership (ACTA is subsidising the meal by $15).  Additional guests and non-members are $50. Will you attend? If yes, Pay into account 02-0184-0213886-000 with your SURNAME and DINNER as reference, no later than Friday 7 June.

 BYO: Because of a change of staff at the bridge club they are no longer able to provide us with a barman for the night, so because of licensing issues we ask that you bring your own alcohol/drink for the night. Glasses will be provided of course!

We still need a GAZEBO: Does anyone have a gazebo with sides that we could use to provide shelter for the Spit Roast Company while they are cooking our anniversary dinner on Saturday 29 June.

Please contact Simon 021 985186 if you can help.

2) Spokesman Souvenir Issue $25. Pay now.

We had almost 20 members (from the earlier survey we did) advising they were keen for a hard copy.

Only 7 have responded & paid so if you indicated that you wanted a copy can you please pay now or advise us if you are not going to get one.

If you want a hard copy you need to order it now.

Please pay into account 02-0184-0213886-000 with your SURNAME and SPOKESMAN as reference, no later than Friday 7 June.

3) First Aid Course for members Monday 8 July 8.30 to 5.00pm
