    We have been superceded by the National Party caucus at our venue this coming Monday evening. The Bowling Club was double booked and we have had difficulty finding another venue at such short notice. Given this and the Waitangi Day and weekend getaways, we have slated our guest speaker to March. We have reserved about 20 seats at Macau in the patio area from 5:30pm to 7:00pm Monday evening for an informal mingle and catchup for anyone who wants to chat about new trust law changes, healthy home standards, or just investment topics in general. Macau's happy hour is until 6pm, so we get the last 30 minutes. We apologise for any inconvenience caused but these circumstances are beyond our control.
