Friday Night Dinner

Friday nights’ dinner was very well supported with over 90 diners attending.  This Friday we will be attempting a new style of service to make your dining experience at the Club more enjoyable.

In an attempt to avoid the long queues waiting for your dinner, your meal will be plated in the kitchen.

We will be calling tables to the servery to receive their meals and plate their own salad and sides. This will reduce meal waiting time and increase your dining pleasure.

We are currently in the process of upgrading our kitchen equipment and are very appreciative of Amigos Mexican Restaurant donation of crockery and glassware.

Kirsty is preparing a delightful summer roast for everyone to enjoy on Friday.( Friday night menu 09 01 15 )

Bookings can be made via phone, the foyer booking sheet or email (manager@dunsboroughcountryclub.org.au) by midday Friday please…

Member Feedback

Thank you to the members who provided feedback on the piano and pool table.  A decision has not yet been reached and I invite more comments on the issue prior to the next management meeting on 19 January 2015.

What do the members think?

A consideration at the last management meeting was to trade in the piano and the pool table for something that may be used more regularly. The Management team was split as to whether these Club assets are being utilized by members and patrons or just taking up space in the Club.  I would be very interested to hear your point of view on the subject.

So to express your opinion please send me an email

Wanted

Thanks for you feedback…

Some of your suggestions will be presented at the management committee meeting on 19 January.

Outdoor Setting in Alfresco Area

It has been suggested the Club could do with a nice outdoor setting for the alfresco area.  The quote returned was around $2000.  This was deemed to be a bit too much money to outlay at present.  If anyone knows of a good quality setting for a less amount could you please contact me at the Club.
