June 2014 meeting

The club's Tipplers' Stroll was held on June 3rd, and much enjoyed by the eighteen members attending. It was a fine evening and the Hoskins' garden was greatly admired, as were the wines offered: a 2012 Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon by Prestige & Calvet of Bordeaux and a 2013 Hardy's Crest Chardonnay Sauvignon.

Our second stop was at the Grady's where an Australian Chardonnay by Banrock, a Western Cape Pinotage Merlot by Kumala (2013), and an Italian Shiraz Rose by Veluti (2013) were appreciated.

We owe a big thank you to our hosts for a successful evening.

Our one disappointment was not being able to cheer our long-standing member Ron Chandler on his 90th birthday, as he was in hospital. A toast was drunk to him in his absence, and his birthday cake was shared round. We are told that he was pleased to be able earlier in the day to take a little wine and cake with family members.

July's event is the summer party. It will be at the Outwood Cricket Club on Tuesday 1st, at 7.30 p.m.
