The Ross Park Hotel in Ballymena was chosen for the 2014 bash and a very good one it turned out to be.
A bus was laid on to transport us to and from the do so our evening started at the club for a couple of warmers into the bank. Amazingly enough there was no problem getting the group of some 50+ embarked on time. Or maybe they were just scared of Anne Clarke!
There was champagne, or non alcoholic punch if you like that kind of thing, served on arrival and a photographer to record proceedings – Well the early parts anyway. One does not really want a photographer recording all one’s antics!!
The service and meal, a proper vegetable soup followed by roast beef and a dessert, could not be faulted and the bar prices were reasonable. What more could one ask for a start to the main proceedings.
The group proved to be a great success so, by the time the bus arrived to ferry us home, we had danced our feet off.
Thanks to George Boyd, Anne Clarke and the organizers for producing a great evening all round.
