A beach party, a rugby dinner and more golf than you can shake a stick at
Hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend! Mine had its ups and downs. There's nothing like a really good downpour to let you know that you have a leak in your roof. On the plus side, a temporary indoor swimming pool is kinda fun. Anyway, here are the latest BDA events:
* Charlar, the Spanish Club, presents their second Noche de Cine (Night of Cinema) tonight at 6pm in the Queen Elizabeth Hall at Bermuda High School for Girls on Richmond Road. The chosen film is the Spanish-French drama Todo Sobre Mi Madre (All About My Mother), rated R with English subtitles. For entry to the film, a $5 donation is suggested, with proceeds going to Bermuda High School for Girls. For more information, contact email@example.com.
* To mark the visit of Gonzalo from Chakana Wines, Discovery Wines we will be throwing an Asado, or Argentine BBQ, in his honour on Thursday, June 28. This will be at 7pm at Mad Hatters with four courses of Argentine food and wines from Chakana. The cost is $100 per person and you can reserve your spot by calling Mad Hatters at 297-6231.
* The next Wine Class from Discovery Wines will be on Saturday, June 30 at Harry's from 10am until noon with a focus on the varietals and the geography of Washington State and Oregon. The cost is $35 per person, $30 for Wine Club Members and includes wines for tasting and handouts.
* The Association of Canadians in Bermuda will be holding their annual Canada Day Beach Party at Warwick Long Bay on Saturday, June 30. From noon until 5pm, there will be cake, volleyball and, of course, the national anthem. Membership is $15 and includes free lunch and beverages. If you were at home, this would be followed by a French translation but I can't be bothered, sorry.
* The Bermuda Rugby Football Union Annual Dinner for 2012 will be at 7pm on Saturday, June 30 at the Fairmont Hamilton Princess. The dinner is in support of the current youth, children and schools initiatives started by the BRFU in the past year or so and there will also be an auction of rugby memorabilia to raise further funds. Guest speakers are Lewis Moody MBE (World Cup winner and former England captain) and Fijian rugby legend Waisale Serevi. Tickets cost $125 for BRFU members, $150 for non-members, and are available from firstname.lastname@example.org.
* Golfers, you'll be spoiled for choice on Saturday, June 30 at the New Beginnings Golf Classic at Fairmont Southampton. This is in support of the New Beginnings $1 Million Campaign, with all proceeds going toward funding education grants for at risk youth and funding the return of the MIRRORS Community Programme for 19 to 24 year old males. There are three different options and two different events on offer. First of all is the Captain's Choice Tournament, where you can choose an 8am or 1pm shotgun start. The afternoon event is restricted to teams of three registered entrants as one MIRRORS young person will be included per team. At 9pm (shotgun start) there will be a Night Golf Tournament run on two 9-hole circuits. The entry fees are $100 per player for the Captain's Choice morning afternoon events (includes green fee and cart) or $75 per player for Night Golf (walking only, special glow-in-the-dark golf balls will be provided). If you want to do more than one event, great news, there are deal bundles! For $150, you can do one of the Captain's Choice (am or pm) plus Night Golf or participate in all three for $225. Registration is online at www.ptix.bm and the deadline is Saturday, June 23rd.
* You are invited to bring the whole family to enjoy all the fun of the fair as Mount Saint Agnes Academy (MSA) Bazaar presents Nursery Rhymes on Friday, October 19 and Saturday, October 20.
