1970s revisited

The theme for the BOP Sun Club's 40th anniversary was the 1970s, as that was when the club became an Incorporated Society. In accordance with this theme, many dressed in 1970s gear. Subsequently there were a few hippies attending the dinner.
A three course meal was catered and served by the committee and helpers and we managed to seat all 50 guests in the clubhouse. After dinner, the tables were cleared away and we were then entertained by a current member, who played some old country music songs. Then a former member (who in the past had been named 'The Two Ton Canary') entertained us. Those who were members in the late 1970s will know who I am referring to!

How do you like our 40th anniversary cake?

Didn't our anniversary cake look great? It featured the current club logo and was decorated in the club's sunny canary yellow, testament to the atmosphere at the Bay of Plenty Sun Club!

Our wonderful 40th anniversary

Over Labour Weekend, fifty people including several former members from the late 1960s, attended the club's 40th anniversary.
Although it was a little damp on Saturday, it didn't dampen the spirits of those attending the event. Our new undercover area was well used as a cooking and serving area for the food so no-one got wet. We even managed to seat all 50 guests for dinner inside in the clubhouse.
More information to come - watch this space!

All go for our 40th anniversary

The grounds look great, the tasks are all allocated and with 42 registrations already, the club is looking forward to a great weekend.
A celebratory dinner on Saturday night will be followed by an evening of entertainment with a live show from a past member which will fit in with the theme of the 1970s. A craft market will be held on Sunday morning and we will wind down to the RWC final later that night.
It is great that some members from as far back as the late '60s and early '70s will be attending and helping us to celebrate the club's history.
There is still time to register so come along and join in the fun.

(Un)dress rehearsal for our 40th anniversary

Don't forget the big event on our calendar - the 40th anniversary of Incorporation at Labour Weekend (21-24 October). The weekend before (15-16 October) will just be a chance to get together and tick off all the small items that are outstanding at the moment, finalise where all our campers will be located on the grounds and ensure we have all the food and prizes organised. The swimming pool should also be ready for the first dip of the season, provided it warms up a bit.
There will be a pot luck dinner on the Saturday night, so come along and see how things are going for our anniversary.
