Past Events

Quiz night

team_win21The inaugural HBNC quiz night held in August was a huge success with the participation of members and visitors.

We started with a great dinner – food feeds the brain it seems even if we did struggle to clear the decks after dessert in time to begin testing the brain!

Thanks to the visitors who came, doubtless expecting a slick professional operation, and lent their enthusiasm and brainpower to the impromptu comedy, mic failures, and a crowd that spared no one in their drive to win one of Trev’s special awards!

While the adjudicators stood up sternly to the heckling of the crowd (the judge’s decision is FINAL even when you google the contents of Elvis Presley’s sandwich), Mark strode boldly forth and turned out a very credible performance. It almost looked as if he knew what he was doing ….with a little prompting from the judges table.(“ No, no chocolate fish extra and speak up!”). The security hired especially for this event shone in his cryptic shirt which offered a cryptic clue to one of the flag questions.

banana21Trevor kept the crowd…mob…..entertained in the breaks with his brilliant version of “banana in my box” with the title of biggest bullshitter going to Jodi! Fancy the final being between the former and new president! ( hmmmmm) Thanks Trev as we needed that time on the judges table to collect ourselves after the mob became accustomed to the fact that creative answers would win a small treat – oh boy did they get creative!

The winning trophies went to “Einstein’s bastard children”, a well-deserved win to a strong (and loud) team.

Mid Winter Christmas Dinner

Wow! Is all I can get out of our cook Trev. It was another great turn out, 50 plus bums on seats meant there wasn’t a lot of room to move in the old clubrooms, as everyone enjoyed a 3 course meal. Again, these dinners don’t happen without the support of our awesome club members and visitors they’ve invited to join us, and the team that gets stuck in every time in the kitchen prep and serving.

The “H” Fancy Dress Winners were...
Chrissy dressed as a Harlequin, very well done.
Mark, who looked more like a Viking, but described himself as “Horny”.
Best Couple was Jim, wearing a Purple Shimmy DRESS with matching BOA and LIPPIE! Plus painted matching Finger and toenails, finished with a red wig and Size 12 sandals as.... “HER’s”. Then Barb wearing a suit, purple shirt and bowtie. Painted on Moustache with black felt hat and shades. As, “HIS”. [She did go with own shoes, socks and undies! I’m too scared to ask what Jim was wearing... under.... you know where...].

Anyway, while Trev was having a well earned break. I, Swampy, looked after the nights entertainment. I couldn’t get Selwyn Toogood or Tineke Bouchier.
So had to settle for “Seldom Good” and “Special Kay” as our “HOST” and “HOSTESS” [how these guys missed out on best dress couple? I just don’t know???] For “IT’S IN THE BAG”.

Black Tie Sports Awards Dinner

20210403_202156Enjoyed by 35 plus club members and visitors (it's always nice to have visitors here for our events, thank you for coming).
It was lovely to see our Guys dress up to the nines in their suits. It’s not often we get the chance to pull out, dust off,
wonder why our dress pants have shrunk??!... Our Girls were also looking beautiful in their cocktail dresses, very debonair.
The Sports Awards were presented by Nick, our club President, who did the 2020 presentation. One of our Visitors did half of 2021, thank you Raewyn. Then the
jrlast half by Hans, so he could sneak around getting ready for the “entertainment”.
To The Night's entertainment.... This was supplied by Mark and Jose, both had No idea that they were... That’s what happens when you decide NOT to have a Stag/Hens night. Ya lucky, you
both got off lightly, we Still think Jose made the best looking Toilet paper Bride.... So stop protesting Mark, your wedding dress was nowhere as nice.

Poolside shake rattle and roll

ctrio-2021The Poolside Shake Rattle and Roll? Became the “Inside” Shake Rattle and Roll? (As the weather wasn’t playing ball). But Hey! Who cares? We had Palm Trees, Music, Hawaiian shirts and some guy in a very strange swim costume?
Dutchy and the Cocktail trio deliver another great selection of cocktails and sangria.

Sports weekend

kubbs2021great two days of exciting, high pace, awesome entertainment and closely fought Action!..... Ok Ok maybe not high pace. But that ping pong ball was moving pretty quickly, and there were some very competitive games.

It was nice to see some first time winners coming thru too, but there’s still that core group of winners that take out their favourite sports each time! Sooo.... This sports weekend happens every year around Jan/Feb, and there’s nothing stopping members from practicing or learning to play. We have the bowling mat and table tennis you can set up anytime, and you can ask Trev, David B, Andrew P, Moana and Paul S about the rules, pointers, or just for a game. Give it a go guys!

pet2021Don’t forget our Black Tie Sports Awards Dinner is coming up 3rd of April. Followed by presentation of trophies to last year’s winners, then this year. Want to know who won?..... Come to the Sports Awards Dinner and find out.
