As always, Sydney comes alive with the onslaught of parties, events and parades in late Feb/early March. THe annual Mardi Gras Festival launched on Sunday with the ever fabulous Fair Day taking place, this year returning to its old stomping grounds of Memorial Park in Camperdown. Freezoine was there in force with our usual brigand of folks and paraphernalia and we had a lovely site in the sports village enjoying the various stalls and craziness that comes with Fair Day. With teh change in venue we were unable to erect our Lawn Court this year but managed to get a few balls in the air and have some fun on the day.
This year we went electronic with our data sign up and got names and addresses down for our biggest annual membership recruitment for the year. The day was resplendent in the sunshine and there was a lot of people roaming around and getting their dose of rainbow coloured love and joy. The club had a measured interest this year owing to our position off the walking track but the volunteers did their best to bring as much ‘attention’ to our stall as possible. Thanks to Mark, Andrew, Louis, Rafael and Dayle for being our reps and hanging around to bring attention and welcoming smiles to our stall.
Keep an eye out at trainings over the next few weeks as we have lots of eager newbies joining the sessions after our drive. We hope to bring in some new talent and eager beavers for our 2017 calendar year.
