Brain Takes Out Manly Warringah B&F

Article from

A fantastic night and the attendees had clearly gone up market for the night, no board shorts were apparent, ties and suits graced the boys and the ladies were frocked up.

Special thanks for the night must go to the organising committee who toiled hard to produce a great evening, Garry Burke who was the 'pap' for the evening, Anthony Jones, on the graphics and the silky smooth Ash Parker on the mike.
