Oysters & Jazz - just a little bit posh

Sunday 31st January 2010 saw the inaugural Oysters & Jazz Festival take place at the Tingira Boat Club.

Commodore Barry Jamieson came up with the "little bit posh" concept and worked very hard to ensure this event was a success.

And it certainly was! We oversold tickets to members and their guests ... we expected to sell about 100 tickets and ended up selling 150 or more! It just goes to show that islanders - and members in particular - are crying out for good entertainment.

Barry welcomed guests and introduced the band "Just Friends" who sang and played brilliantly throughout a day somewhat marred by rain.

Oysters and bubbly were the theme and tickets included half a dozen oysters (naturel or kilpatrick) and a glass of bubbly. Chef Trevor and his band of ladies were busy in the kitchen serving up oysters and cheese plates whilst Chef John was cooking up a storm outside, providing hamburgers to hungry sailors and dancers.

Here's a few shots of members and guests enjoying the day .....
