Ladies High Tea Event

Sunday the 31st of March saw 30 ladies for our high tea event at the beautiful Gardens on Forrest, the grounds and venue were both spectacular: a little gem tucked away in Peakhurst. 

Our event started at 11.00am with Champagne on arrival and lots of happy faces!
An abundance of beautiful little pastries, scones & desserts were served enjoyed by all.
We had an amazing raffle with great prizes that were donated by our lovely members, 10 prizes perfectly suited for our ladies event.

All the money raised from the raffle ticket sales totaled $400 and was donated to the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation. 

Without these members attendance this event wouldn't be possible, so as thankyou for attending and showing support for our first ladies event, each lady was presented with a candle, single rose and personalised cookie. 

It was memorable morning at a beautiful venue with lots of great company! 

Looking forward to our next ladies event.

F1 Experience 2019

Thursday the 14th through to Monday 18th of March, 19 members of IMSMC participated in the 2019 Melbourne Grand Prix.

What a Fantastic experience. It's an absolute carnival in Melbourne during these 4 days, people movement, restaurants, coffee shops and bars are all buzzing. V8's, touring cars, Porsche challenge, F4, driver parades, static displays, qualifiers and of course THE BIG RACE.

 We were fortunate to have organised a silver pass, which allowed us special grandstand seating and were able to visit certain arena's and halls, which added to the fantastic experience. All meals were organised, which took a lot of the hard decision making away! By co-incidence, the banks of the Yarra had an Italian festival on the Saturday, which allowed us to relax with fine refreshments, music  and of course, a good plate of pasta!

The extra long weekend was special for all - as some (who did not attend the race) graced themselves with visits to the many museums, art galleries, markets and shopping malls that Melbourne has to offer. The entire group enjoying a  reserved experience with a private bus and tour guide, visiting some of the most interesting sites that Melbourne has to offer! Brunetti's....Memorable!!

Once again, the IMSMC flag rose to the occasion where a "special group" of people shared in fine company, food, beverage and friendship!

We look forward to the next one!

Lunch at Panorama House

Sunday the 3rd of March, 30 Italian Vehicles, transported 95 members & family for a great day at Panorama House in Bulli.

A meeting place on Heathcote Rd was arranged and at 10:15am, all made their way toward this great venue.

Upon arrival, our cars were arranged "by coincidence" in 2 straight lines, occupying prime spots in the car park, attracting onlookers, like bees to honey.

The view from Panorama house, would have to be the best view of our eastern coastline - absolutley spectacular - Hence the name of the venue. 

With the Venue came our menu, an abundance of fine food. Unbeliveably, there was even food left over from our elaborate buffet - Now that's saying something regarding our lot! 

The drive to & from the venue, is certainly conducive to our classics, no steep inclines or decents, the Italian stallions performing happily, as the jets & injectors were put through their paces getting a good "Italian tune up!"

A memorable day and great venue, One which will be remembered for all the right reasons. We'll do that again!
