Dear Malcolm, Rod and Justin,
Just a short note to say what a pleasure it was to have had you as part of our annual Salt SLSC sportsman’s’ lunch at Saltbar last Friday. You guys were absolutely terrific – every bit as good as Justin promised you would be. The feedback since the event has been fantastic, thanks largely to you.
The day’s take is still being tallied but it looks like around $20,000 – down a bit on prior years but the economy in our part of the world has been a bit crook of late and it seems progressively more and more difficult to extract donations from people.
If you’re ever in our neck of the woods again, we’d love to look after you.
PS – Malcolm – thanks for the tips for the Caulfield on Saturday.
