SAMA Social Events

SAMA has regular social events organised by Helen Suridge. These include Friday night dinners and Sunday lunches, and an annual weekend getaway. A Xmas in July lunch was held again in 2017. In December the club has a Christmas Fun Night instead of its normal athletic program, when members and their families can compete in a number of unusual fun events.

Weekend Getaway
The weekend away is an annual event. In recent years about 40 members enjoy the activities : early morning walking / running followed by relaxing afternoons or shopping trips to nearby towns.
We share dinner Friday night with George’s tough quiz to tackle, and go out Saturday night to a local hotel. There are bushwalks, lots of local shops and things to see. We always have a great time talking, eating, drinking, happy hours and sharing tales of PB’s past! Running or walking each morning is always part of the weekend.
The next weekend away will be at Tanunda Caravan Park, Barossa Valley from Friday 26th to Sunday 28th October 2018 (see below for further information, including payment details).
