At 5pm we met up with Surrey Thomas (Brighton) at their Hall, to wait for the Sir Dallas Brookes Party Bus. There was a general exitement in the air as we compared costumes, took photos and constantly checked the time in anticipation. It was going to be a good night!
Once we were all crammed in to the Bus we set off for a night of Joy, Laughter, Merryment and Good Food... The bus trip was an exciting one, being excessively long as we circled the Westgate Bridge 3 times. On the bus we met up with a few more crews, all sporting clever costumes. There were Cowgirls, School Girls, Mr. Potato Heads, the entire cast from Mario Brothers, Barbie and Ken with their dream cars and, of course, the Sailor Scouts.
Once we arrived at the Melrose Reception Centre everyone climbed out of the bus and egarly waited to be let in to the venue. The wait was not a long one, as we caught up with more Rover Friends, laughed at the Toy Soldiers and Crazy Trolls.
The evening sarted with Pacman seranading Mrs. Pacman on the dancefloor as Storm Troopers mingled with Disney Princesses and the band set up. We began our dinner with a choice of Chicken Parma or teak Tenderloins getting to know Hellsgate Rover Crew, who we were seated with.
Once the band begun it was difficult to pry people off the dancefloor, even for dessert!
All in all, it was a great evening with the Crazy Trolls winning best dressed crew. Everyone came away from the Ball smiling, looking forward to next year
