6:30 p.m., Reception

Point Grey Golf and Country Club

3350 SW Marine Drive

Vancouver, British Columbia

The Reception and Barbie Buffet Dinner is now SOLD OUT!  Thank you for your support.  All current members not registered for the Reception and Barbie are still welcome to attend the AGM.  

We have had some really great events this year, and we are finishing the season with our fabulous Barbie. We are returning to last year’s venue. Point Grey has a beautiful clubhouse, and the sundeck, overlooking the 18th fairway, is spectacular! 

We will enjoy a lovely dinner with some bottles, new and old, from the cellar, as well as some donated by the Australian and New Zealand Consuls and Trade Commissions. 

 The Australian Wine Appreciation Society (AWAS) has its General Meeting at 6 pm, spiced up with a glass of wine, followed by wines on the deck at 6:30 and the Barbie at 7.  If you don’t come to the AGM, you’ll miss out.

Since we will be assigning tables at the event, we will have to receive cheques or your on-line registration by June 15 to be able to include you and your guests at the event.  

My thanks to Alysha Berezay, Food and Beverage Manager for Point Grey. She is looking after all the arrangements for our big event!
