'Forever Diamond' Tribute Show Review


Wow ... Coleambally was at its best last night. The Peter Byrne 'Forever Diamond' show was a huge success for the Coly Club and the town. Peter Byrne loved entertaining such a great audience that he wants to come back again next year with another show.


Thanks for all the positive feedback but without all the wonderful people of Coly supporting the event it would not have been the great success it was.


Thank you to Blair and his staff for all the great work that did behind the bar and delivering drinks to the tables ... well done to all.


Thank you to (Sweet) Carolyne Rutledge for making the tickets, pamphlets, posters and banners ... well done girl! And thanks to all our volunteers, Jan, Tracy, Barb, Helen etc. etc. who helped by selling tickets and helped out in a lot of other ways.


Thank you to Tony Lawrence and Colleen Mader for ferrying member and guests to and from the club, ensuring that everyone could enjoy themselves without worrying whether they had a drink or two too many. Thanks to Dan Griffiths for giving us the use of the Pub's Booze Bus.


Thank you to the House Kitchen Restaurant staff for providing a fantastic, very affordable buffet meal. Great meal as always.


Special thanks have to go to the Board of Directors for having the intestinal fortitude (guts) to take a punt on having this event at the Coly Club. It was a gamble with a lot of money at stake but it paid off in spades ... we actually made a sizable profit that will keep the Coly Club a very viable concern for some time to come.


Next year is looking bigger a brighter for the Coly Club and its membership. Our support base is growing steadily. With your support we intend to run more events next year with perhaps two major show events, a bigger and better 250 Club, more bowls nights etc. The gaining of our Council grant will mean that there will be a covered kids playground, out-door dining area and renovations to the lounge bar which will open directly to the bowling green.


Thank you everyone for your on-going support. Let's make 2017 bigger a better!!!!
