Poor Pip, Donatello and the Cabinet who will spend hours fixing that hair stlye!

Our Pre-Drinks Meeting & Teenage Mutant Ninja Tertle Night was a great success. Champagne was flowing, turkish bread disappeared and Tertles were falling on their backs everywhere. We had a big turn out for the event, with it being our first Guest Speaker. However the relaxed manner, helped deal with the sombre issue of youth sucide which our special Guests, Amy and Katie, from Youth Focus helped explore. It was an informative and social night, where we now have some idea of how Youth Focus helps youth in need.

A big thankyou to Amy and Katie for coming and chatting to us and even the daggy game was a good laugh! A special thankyou to Liz for purchasing all the essentials and setting up the night and Lauren for arriving in the nik of time with the all important champagne glasses. Cheers to everyone that attended and I hope you had a good night. Now lets get stuck into helping out Youth Focus.

“We had it all, fast cars, loud cars and an even bigger bang in a massive fireball of fireworks."

Cars were flying thick and fast around the corners, they were tipped over, ripped apart and stalled as roofs were ripped off and tyres fell apart before a roaring crowd. We had it all, fast cars, loud cars and an even bigger bang in a massive fireball of fireworks. One driver, was even spirited away by awaiting medics, leaving his body in ruins and me with an empty wallet. I think you know who got the raw end of that deal!! Ohh but for the love of the race!!

All this and more crashed and roared at the Quit Motorplex stands as the Rotary Club of Claremont raised funds for CANCER RESEARCH. Our club was represented by Jules and Neil, who after a fortifying Indian Dinner donned on crazy wigs and fluoro shirts, sweeping the stadium for donations. We liked to call ourselves the silver team for our crazy silver wigs and we managed to help raise over $2166 dollars for cancer research. It was good fun and for a bloody good cause!

"We laughed, we cried and then we had Hungry Jacks."

Prosh was a complete success for both UWA and for those in Rotaract that got dressed and attended. "We laughed, we cried and then we had Hungry Jacks." There was a massive turn-out and a big pat on the backs to all those who attended because our two tins were bloody heavy by the end of the event! Very heavy!

So our first event as a club group was a social, crazy outing that helped raised money for WA Disabled Sport Association, The Samaritans, Alzheimers Australia, The Palmerston Association and THE CANCER FOUNDATION :) Insiders joke.

Cheers for everyones stellar effort!
