PCV Annual Dinner

The Porsche Club of Victoria held it's annual dinner dance / presentation night in the ballroom of the Sofitel Hotel in Melbourne on Saturday evening.

The event had a 'Martini' theme, both in terms of the cocktails served and to recognise the traditional Martini Porsche racing colours amply demonstrated by the Turbo on display in the room. The Cayenne Turbo-driving, famous AFL identity, Dermot Brereton, was the guest speaker. He added an earthy / blokey feel to the evening appreciated by many, not so much by some...

A large crowd was in attendance and by the width of the smiles and the quantity of the noise & chatter, a good time was had by all. I am always surprised by the standard of the food that can be prepared, cooked and delivered hot to 200+ guests. I also thought beverage service was good. A subject very close to my heart...

From my knowledge and observations, all of the class winners and club champions rightly deserved and picked up their prestigious awards. Congratulations to them.

My fellow GT3 buddy Chris and I were surprised to 'quietly' receive our first ever prizes for competition events. Only a couple of second place finishes but positive encouragement nonetheless. However, best not to think how much the piece of paper and trophy cost...
