After many years of cancelling our Tuesday meeting at the Hotel on Melbourne Cup Day and replacing it with a BBQ meeting at the home of our Ted and Janice Haydon , that year 2019, we returned to the Hotel on 29th of October to create a fresh version of this celebration of the Melbourne Cup .

Partners were invited to join us of course and everyone was encouraged to wear attractive clothes, hats and for men to wear a bow tie . It then made Sergeant Liz’s an interesting job of declaring the best dressed . In the end she congratulated Gavin Thoms for being the most Dapper Gentleman and the prize for the best dressed lady was given to Carmel Cunningham
