Sunday 3 September 2017 - Lunch - Zamia Cafe King's Park
Feet grateful for a rest, we finished off the weekend with a lunch in the beautiful setting of King's Park and the Zamia Cafe.  The musicians, with their punishing schedule - arrived Perth, Saturday lunchtime from Brisbane and Sydney - departed mid PM on Sunday - no time to acclimatise to any time change.  Their visit and music was much appreciated by all.

Sunday 3 September 2017 - Special dance class - Palms Community Centre Subiaco
What?  Miss another opportunity to dance to the music of Iain Mckenzie and Emma Nixon?!  John Brenchley chose dances from Books 50 and 51.    The sun was shining and the coolness of the morning soon disappeared once we started moving.  Not forgetting the homemade morning tea.

Saturday 2 September 2017 - Dinner Dance - South of Perth Yacht Club
The scene was set.  The chandeliers glittering.  The tables pristine.  The musicians warming up.  The dancers in their finery.  How could it not be a wonderful night of great music and dances?  Many thanks to all the organisers and contributors.  Photos.
