It was a great night that did not disappoint. The food was fantastic, the draw kept everyone on the edge of their seats and the company was terrific. Photo from the even can be found in the Photos section. Now for some of the results. The last five names drawn were:
4th Nightmare (Keith)
3rd Trevor Jones
2nd Tim Smith
1st Dale Taylor (Winner)
If you notice, Dale won the draw last year and he won the $1,000 first prize. Because he was not in attendance due to another engagement, the finalists could not share the prize money so all $1,000 goes to Dale. The odds of winning the reverse draw two years in a row is 1:30,250!! Perhaps Dale should start buying lottery tickets on behalf of the club. Peewee was wise enough to bet on Dale in the Calcutta and took home that pot. Jamie London won the $100 gift certificate and Kelly won the opportunity to win $180,000 in the door prize raffle.
The fabulous buffet consisted of:
Tuscan bruschetta salad with garden vegetables,
Salad Nicoise with tuna.
Grilled chicken breast with portobello mushroom-bacon fricassee.
AAA-New York striploin
Baked maple glazed wild BC sockeye salmon fillets.
Penne alla carbonara.
Grilled summer vegetables.
Assorted mini-Italian pastries & Sicilian cannoli
