Adelaide Lunch – Noel Shelton

Our annual MSA - SA get together will be held at the British Hotel, in North Adelaide, on Sunday 6th May 2018, in the barbeque area, as usual. The format will be the same, a relaxing get together over lunch with an afternoon of fellowship.  Our lunch last year was again a success, with new faces local and interstate adding to the numbers. 

As in previous years, I will be circulating an invitation nearer to the date inviting all who have attended in the past, plus others for whom I have addresses and may be interested in attending.  It is a mixed function so please bring your spouse along. If you know others who would be interested then please assure them of a warm welcome and a good afternoon.  Just let me know so I can confirm the numbers with the British. The MSA will be supporting us as in the past.  So if you have been thinking of joining, membership of the MSA is inexpensive and easy.  Information is on the web site at http://www.msa.asn.au. Every membership counts and our numbers are growing in South Australia.

2018 ACT Maritime Squadrons Association Dinner – Friday 2 March 2018

 

To all members

The annual ACT Maritime Squadrons Association dinner for members and partners will be held on Friday 2 March 2018 at Rydges Capital Hill (Cnr Canberra Avenue & National Circuit, Forrest ACT).

 

Given the difficulties associated with the NSW dinner and the likelihood that there may not be any such function in 2018, the ACT dinner will, in effect, be a combined ACT/NSW MSA dinner.

We were restricted for available dates for the dinner as March is the height of the wedding season in Canberra and most establishments are heavily booked on Saturdays. In addition, the Canberra Day long weekend is scheduled for 10–12 March and the Brumbies have a home game on Sat 17 March 2018.

So I can give Rydges staff an idea of numbers for the dinner, I would appreciate an indication by mid-January if possible of whether you are likely to attend. You will not be held to this but it makes it easier to have some idea of the probable number of people attending. Can I please ask that you make a special effort to attend so that we do not fall below 30 attendees, which could result in a room hire charge.

 

Details of the dinner are as follows:

 

Date:           Friday 2 March 2018

 

Time:          1830–1915    Pre-dinner drinks with canapes

                   1915             Dinner (main course and dessert)

 

Venue:        Rydges Capital Hill

                   Cnr Canberra Avenue & National Circuit

                   FORREST   ACT   2603

                   Ph:              (02) 6295 3144

                   Website:      www.rydges.com/capitalhill

 

Menu:          To be advised—two options for both main course and dessert, served alternately.

                   Special Dietary Requirements: If you or your partner have any special requirements, please advise accordingly.

 

Dress:         Suggested dress for gentlemen is jacket and tie (Association tie and lapel badge), and for ladies after-five wear.

 

Cost:           MSA members and partners      $75 per head ($150/couple)

                   Non-members and partners       $85 per head ($170/couple)

 

Payment:     Payment may be made by cheque (made out to ‘Maritime Squadrons Association ACT’ and posted to me (Keith Brent, 102 Crisp Circuit, BRUCE ACT 2617), with attached ‘Attendance Notification’ slip), or by direct transfer of the funds to the ACT MSA bank account. For the latter option, the bank account details are as follows:

 

                   Defence Bank

                   BSB:                  803 205

                   Account Name:   Maritime Squadrons Association ACT

                   Member No:        3854195

                   Account No:        20733447

 

                   If possible, please ensure you use the full name ‘Maritime Squadrons Association ACT’ and not the abbreviation ‘MSA’ on your cheque or direct transfer documentation, as the bank’s system may reject payment if the account name is incorrect or incomplete.

 

                   If you transfer the funds directly to the account, please advise me (kbrent@optusnet.com.au) by email of the date and time when you did this so I can reconcile the payments received and check you off as having paid. Don’t forget also to send me the ‘Attendance Notification’ slip.

 

Please complete the ‘Attendance Notification’ slip attached and return it with your cheque (or transfer the funds direct to the ACT MSA bank account) at your earliest convenience. Please note that all payments are required by no later than Wednesday 14 February 2018. Any cancellations up to that date will receive a refund. However, after that date, I will not be able to refund the full amount as Rydges requires payment in advance for the food costs.

 

Your payment will cover pre-dinner drinks and canapes, and a two-course dinner (mains and dessert) with house wines/beverages. The evening will operate on a ‘dry till’ method, whereby beverages (standard house wines, spirits, beer and soft drink) are charged on consumption up to a specified limit. If/when the money allocated for beverages is exhausted, drinks may then be bought from the bar on a pay-as-you-go basis. In addition, if members wish to drink other than the standard house wines/beverages, these will be available for individual purchase as desired.

 

For those of you who are not yet members of the Maritime Squadrons Association, I would urge you to join as soon as possible. Details of the Association and a Membership Application Form are available from the website at www.msa.asn.au.

 

Accommodation:

 

·                For members from outside Canberra, accommodation is available at Rydges Capital Hill (Ph: (02) 6295 3144 / www.rydges.com/capitalhill). Staff have advised that they may offer a ‘special rate’ for MSA members attending the dinner; however, they have yet to provide me with the details. As soon as I receive this information I will forward it to you by email.

 

·                Please note that I cannot make accommodation bookings for you and you need to deal direct with Rydges.

 

·                Another option to get a special room rate is to join Rydges Priority Guest Rewards program, which will give you access to discount members’ rates. It doesn’t cost anything to join and, besides the normal discount rates, they often have extra special deals—I’ve been a member for some years now and have used it on several occasions to good effect. You can access the Priority Guest Rewards website through a link on the Rydges homepage (http://www.rydges.com/) or go direct to https://www.priorityguestrewards.com.au/.
