Updated report on the night.
Following the very successful J Nights at Sandringham YC last year the Victorian Association has done it again. This time the night was held in the brand spanking amazing new clubhouse. For those who have not yet been into the new building you are in for a surprise – simply awesome !
The night started with a few people gathering in the members bar and then the group was given a complete tour of the new building. From the aircraft carrier bridge type race control tower at the top to the fully equipped auditorium and offices on the ground floor and the public areas on the first floor, the group was very impressed with the new building.
Drinks as usual and the with Victorian Association picking up the tab for a light finger food dinner as well, the evening went off well. About 20 members enjoyed the hospitality in the members lounge. Simon Grain gave an overview of the national scene and Hugo Ottaway did the same with the local scene.
Hugo then presented Luke Mathews with the new Summer Aggregate Series trophy – The Whitworth Marine and Leisure Cup (an impressive cup revived from the SYC loft as it had not been used for some time) – for last season’s Summer Aggregate racing won by Pacemaker. With the Nationals here next summer this new trophy will be hard fought for in the coming season.
