Tigers Long Luncheon

The Tigers held another successful Long Luncheon with over 300 people in attendance at the Woden Southern Cross Club.   It was an excellent day with Guest Speaker Max Walker providing a wonderful insight into his sporing career spanning his days with AFL Club Melbourne and then as an Australian cricketer.

Entertainer Phil Cass lightened up the room with an outstanding display of magical mystery. He had the room stunned with an incredible array of tricks that mesmerised those in attendance.

The afternoon was the 19th occasion the Tigers have held the Long Luncheon with the Southern Cross Woden Club providing an excellent venue .  The staff and management of the Southern Cross Club were outstanding particularly early in the day with a few last minute arrangements being required .

This years Long Luncheon was sponsored by Canberra Data Centre, Rovera Scaffolding and Numbers Partnership.
