Once the word was out, it did not take long for bookings to fill so the success of the popular function was guaranteed. It was good to see many social members taking advantage of what the club has to offer and they were joined by visitors from Royal Perth Yacht Club and elsewhere.

A fabulous band got the party started with a mix of country music and rock classics so the dance floor was a busy place all night.

Special thanks to Vern, Judy and Duncan Bailey, who brought in a stack of hay bales and paraphernalia from their farm to add to the atmosphere.  A water tank on a country style tank stand stood adjacent to a windmill. There was even a honky tonk piano near the bar. A large screen TV ran a mix of Western movies and TV shows. Visitors entered the ballroom through a pair of bat wing saloon doors and were served by bar staff wearing country style clothing.  It was great to see them so involved and they did a superb job in serving food and drinks. The decorations were simply superb.

The award for the best dressed guest went to Sue Smith, wearing a salacious and daring scarlet saloon girl gown and fishnet stockings – a great eye-catching outfit.

Full credit must go to Chris Pearson and his hard-working committee for putting the night together. If this is any indication of what we can expect from this group, we are going to have some fabulous social activities at the Club in the future!
