Day Three of the Adelaide Conference

Well after a fun day yesterday it was time to get serious and get down to business but not before I rang my wife in Brisbane to wish her a Happy 16th Wedding Anniversary.
After the AGM was done and dusted for another year, we got down to meeting the suppliers. They get 18 minutes to impress us with their new products or specials, then we move on to the next table and so on.
We broke for morning tea then got back into it again going through until 12.30 were we stopped for lunch. When we returned we had a guest speaker in the way of Greg Cooper; the great grandson of the founder of Coopers Beer. His story was very fascinating and had the audience captivated and wanting more.

After the speech was done it was back into it until 3.20. There we stopped for the day having afternoon tea but to also remember and pay respects to the late Sharon Lee, the wife of Rapid Clean's General Manager, who passed away with cancer last year. There were pink items to eat plus Cancer Council products for sale as they did a fund raiser.

After that it was time to head up to the room and refresh before we jumped on the bus for another night out, this time we were heading for a Medieval Feast at Maximillian's Winery.

After being handed a drink on arrival we were offered the chance to wine some wine by hitting a golf ball into the middle of a pond and landing the ball on the green. I had a go but not ever played golf before, I could have thrown the ball further than I hit it.

We also had another chance to do some wine tasting.

Then it was time to sit down and eat and can I say the food was absolutely sensational, moist and tender.

After the amazing dinner the band started people got up to danced the night away.
It was another wonderful evening had by all.
