September/October 2015

Hi Folks

Thank you to everyone that supported our Dargavllle concert on the 12th of September. It was a big day with a good sized audience turning out to enjoy an afternoon with ourselves and The Mountain Mist Band. Thanks to Dennis and Mort for providing the sound  and to everyone that helped set up and pack down the hall for us. Your help was very much appreciated. Greta to see familiar faces enjoying the music. We will be back in Dargaville on Sunday the 1st of November as guest artists for the Northern Wairoa Country Music Club. So come along and join us we are looking forward to a great afternoon.

October was a busy month for us. We were at the Kamo Club on the 3rd of October for a Saturday night gig. We have quite a few members from the dance section joining us on our Norfolk Island Tour in 2016 and we know they like to enjoy themselves. We have a great week organized for everyone and have nearly reached our target for numbers so if you would like to join us as well please contact us asap. We would hate you to miss out on an awesome week of fun and country music. We will be back at the Kamo Club in early December for the Dance Section Xmas break up.

On the 10th we entertained at the Dargaville Lions 50th birthday celebrations held at the Lighthouse restaurant at the Dargaville Museum. It was almost like a reunion as well with past members attending from out of town. Awards were presented with two for fifty years of service, one including 100% meeting attendance during those fifty years. Thank you to the Lions Club for asking us to perform. We had an awesome night.

The following Wednesday we were at the Whangarei RSA celebrating the Women’s Sections 70th birthday. Another awesome afternoon of speeches, presentations, fun and music. Congratulations to both the Lions Club and the Women’s section for their achievements. We will be back at the RSA on Friday the 11th of December. Wow, is the end of the year that close.

Before then we are looking forward to our second visit to Balclutha on the 14th of November. We had a great time in March this year at the Town and Country Club in Balclutha and look forward to catching up with Ngarita, Kevin and crew.

Allan Webster posterWe have a short break over Christmas but then look out for us in the New Year as we will be doing two shows with our good friend Allan Webster from Australia. The first will be at Whangarei RSA on Sunday 10th January from 1pm – 4pm and the second on Wednesday 13th January for the Kamo Club dance Section 7:30pm – 10pm. From there we all head south to the Marton Country Music Festival. So check out our show page on our web site to see if we will be at a venue near you.

Until then take care and keep it country.

Best wishes

Annette and Kim
