We’ve had to have a change of venue for the Annual Dinner, (due to the current problems at the hotel). Thanks to the hard work of Michael, we have been able to book the Sporting Car Club, 51 King William Road, Unley, for the same night and arrange caterers for a Carvery Menu. The band is still booked so it all systems go!!Remember to book and pay as soon as you can. Let us know if you want to come, $35 per head.
The sponsors have been at it again !

The Hotel Wright Street renovation was completed in September of 2011. Wrecked, rejuvenated and rebuilt completely by its hands on owners, an overwhelming sense of openness greets allcomers as they wander through the entrance and are drawn to the rear of the hotel where The Cider Garden – with its very own apple tree – awaits.
Regularly evolving collections of beer, cider & wine will keep your thirst at bay and when combined with some of the kitchen’s creations, the Wright St becomes the perfect spot to while away the hours…any day of the week.
