MBCWA Presidents dinner with Guess who as speaker??

Hello all, I would ike to extend an invitation to all WA members of OZBENZ (and any east coasters for that matter) to attend the Mercedes-Benz club of WA Annual Presidents dinner. Details as posted on there website:

At West Perth
Organisers Mercedes-Benz Club WA Australia

Postcode / City West Perth

Telephone 08 9444 7685 (ah)

Join our President, Jeremy Ludlow, at the annual President's Dinner for 2009.Please note that this event has recently been rescheduled to Friday 17 April 2009.

Our guest speaker will be John Green, proprietor of MB Spares and Service in Canberra, and sponsor of the well known enthusiasts' forum ozbenz.net.

Anyone who’s been to the President’s Dinner in the four years we’ve run it will remember a fabulous evening, where the meal is memorably good and the company excellent. We’re aiming to make this a big night in 2009, and in addition to our guest speaker, have some special prizes arranged for every table.

The cost will be $75 per person and we have arranged a delicious menu for the evening. The menu begins with antipasto, continues with either veal parmigiana or snapper fillets, and finishes with tiramisu. We’re encouraging members to bring along friends and family members – especially any who are Mercedes-Benz or smart owners. If you can, please make up a table of up to ten people.

It’s a chance to dress up and have a big night out with great company. Arrive at 7pm for canapés and sit down at 7.30pm for a wonderful 3-course meal. Venue is the Perth Soccer Club, Dorrien Gardens, 3 Lawley Street, West Perth WA 6005.

Tickets are available by pre-booking only and payment may be made by credit card.


Yes folks that's right I must be getting famous or something as they have invited me to come and bore them with stories about the business and MB's in general. To be honest I feel very honoured by the invitation and are excited to be attanding this event. Just to give you some idea, they had Allan Moffat last year!

I would also like to suggest that we could have a less formal OZBENZ members BBQ on the Saturday night as I are not flying back east until Sunday linch time.... Any thoughts on that WA members??

I doubt that we would be interested in the dinner. I would like to attend an informal gathering of OZBENZ members. Subject to confirmation from my darling wife.


Good Idea John.

John,
That would be a good opportunity to display the "Turbo Fatmobile", now on the road. ("about bloody time!" I hear from the back stalls.)

I have yet to broach the matter with Tayo (my darling wife), but we, or at least I, should be able to attend and finally meet you in person. Will your wife be in attendance?

I look forward to meeting other WA OzBenzers also.

Tony

John,
I haven't heard from the others yet, but in the absence of any other suggestions, how about we just meet at your hotel and take it from there.
I am happy to take you to see the sights of Perth, go to a restaurant or just a food hall but I don't know how much you have been here and what you would like to see/do.
I live a bit far out of town (~40 minutes) to ask everyone to come here for a BBQ, but I am happy to bring along some food for one if someone wishes to organise one.

What time will you be available on Saturday?

I am loking forward to meeting you and any other forum/MBCWA members on Saturday.

Travel Safe,

Should anyone else wish to participate, please call me by midday Saturday so that we can arrange to meet with John.

Tony
