10 Year Anniversary Dinner

Postby crom » Mon May 08, 2017 10:13 am

For those that missed it, QRS had a fantastic night on Saturday celebrating 10 years since the formation of QRS.

It was great to see many of the members from the early days of the club in attendance and hear stories about the formation of the club from former president Brian Dixon. It was a pleasure having Dave Cousens from WARS join the dinner as well.

A big thank you to Petar Nikolic for organising and MCing the dinner, without his hard work in the weeks leading in and on the night the dinner would have been nowhere near as successful as it was.

My favorite photo from the night is included below as four generations of QRS Presidents were in attendance. Look forward to many more photos in the next newsletter....
