2010 Pre-Dinner Drinks
With the announcement by the Scottish Minister for Culture and External Affairs, Fiona Hyslop, that South Australia is the preferred bidder to obtain the world's oldest clipper ship City of Adelaide, we invite you to join us at a dinner to raise additional funds to transport the clipper to South Australia.
The dinner also commemorates the 147th Anniversary of the first arrival of the City of Adelaide in South Australia in November 1864 under the command of Scotsman and quarter-owner Captain David Bruce.  The clipper ship City of Adelaide was purpose built to serve South Australia.  Launched on the 7th May 1864, the City of Adelaide is a few years older than the world's only other surviving clipper ship, the Cutty Sark.
As momentum is growing, we seek your support by joining us at the dinner in the Members Dining Room, Adelaide Oval, on 4th November 2011.  The dinner will be attended by our Patron, His Excellency Rear Admiral Kevin Scarce AC CSC RANR Governor of South Australia.  Master of Ceremonies is ABC891 Drive presenter Sonya Feldhoff.
The cost of the dinner is $125 per person and includes pre-dinner drinks and some table wines.  Bar facilities are available for purchasing drinks during the meal.  Dress code is Jacket and Tie.
If you would like to attend please RSVP to email: events@cityofadelaide.org.au.
Please consider bringing friends and colleagues and making up a table of eight. The following link is an invitation in PDF format that can be downloaded and forwarded. icon Dinner Invitation 4 November 2011 (785.16 kB)
