Dear club members

After many months of dipping in an out of social restrictions and with a new period of uncertainty looming ahead, it is now time to take a deep breath and sit back and relax and enjoy the festive season with our loved ones. With the current rise in infections and the spectre of a new variant looming ahead, we think you will all understand that the committee and I need to wait a few more weeks before we can organize more club events. We just ask you to save this date:

Saturday, 8 January 10am, PROSECCO & PANETTONE

We will monitor the situation closely and inform you at the beginning of 2022, if and where we will be able to celebrate. For those of you who were not able to join our last event, I hope you will enjoy a few photos of our tour of the Grand Hotel Locarno and the aperitif at the Casino Locarno. 45 members attended and I am sure that we all enjoyed the unique possibility of being able to view the inside of this historical landmark. The magnificent Murano glass chandelier is the largest in the world. We have been told that when the 18 December 2021 renovations begin the chandelier will be taken apart piece by piece by Murano experts and restored to its former glory. It is still magnificent to see (even with a few cobwebs hanging)!

Our 2021 club year was packed with activities and we can comfortably say that we pulled out all the stops to make the club year as attractive as possible during these rather bumpy times! From the bottom of our hearts we wish you all the very best and at the very top of our wish list "we wish you the best of health!"

Stefanie & committee
