The Carabella Room was packed to capacity on 7 April as eager Friday Twilighters gathered for a chance to win the Audi Alto Artarmon participation prizes.
We received 107 block entries for the series, an increase of 5 boats on last season, and 44 boats met the participation criteria of 72% of the races to be eligible for the lucky prize draw.
Sarah Connell, Alto's Marketing and Communications Manager, thanked Squadron Members for their support and then drew the winner: John van Ogtrop of Out of the Blue. He wins a holiday for two to Qualia on Hamilton Island to enjoy Race Week. Two consolation prizes of tickets to the Audi Drive Experience were then drawn and presented to Glenn Richard of Ostara and Malcolm Shaw of Zig Zag II.
'Rain, Hail or Shine' prizes acknowledge those skippers who steadfastly compete in every race. Garth Eather from Meerea Park Wines made awards to:
• Koolaroo – David FitzSimons
• Gail Force – Graeme Smith
• Viva La Vita – Howard Elliott
• Willyama – Trish Stanley
