SATURDAY 25th NOVEMBER 2017 – Janne Bidenko

We have decided to have our Christmas at Bicentennial Park again this year, as our Deafblind people have voted for this, as they enjoyed last year. 

This is located at Olympic Park, Homebush Bay, there are lovely short walks, close to where we will be seated in one of the undercover pavilions. There are Tandem bikes for hire as well, which our gallant Andrew Niklaus rode with those game DBs who found they really enjoyed this.

We will also take other games, that Janetta brought to the venue last year.  Santa will visit and we will celebrate Christmas and the end of a very interesting year at DBA(NSW).

Venue: Bicentennial Park, near bicycle hire.                                                                         

Time: 11.30am for 12.30 Christmas Lunch

Cost: $15 plus bring a small gift to help Santa.

Please contact Janne on 0432 570 210 or to book, so that we have numbers for buses early.
