We are delighted to report this evening event will be a FULL HOUSE with 106 attending (so no stragglers permitted).  To meet the high ticket demand, tables will be cozy but stretched to seat nine per table.  Please arrive by 6:00 pm to allow time to order drinks and select a table.  Be ready to be seated by 6:25 pm, where to ease catering congestion we will be invited to the buffet table-by-table.
This will be a scintillating and entertaining evening featuring NZ's voice of the America's Cup (since 2002) and New Zealand Yachtsman of the year in 1977 and 1987.
