WA Sharpie AGM Report

Thanks to all that attended the AGM on Saturday. A great time was had by all including a late arriving SA Sharpie President, David Snoad. A big thanks to Gordon and Jane who hosted the event, along with all the ladies that provided the delicious dinner and desert.
The 2006? Perth Nationals video was on constant re-run causing plenty of excitement and anticipation for the upcoming year (hopefully with the return of a healthy Freo Doctor). See you at the next Sharpie social event!

Please send us your news, photos, video, links to so we can add it to the website.
