Lots of exciting events this year starting with our Gala Mardi Gras dinner at berardos restaurant Hastings street Noosa on Monday 5th March. This is Noosa's Top restaurant and the night promises to lots of fun. The event is sponsored by GALTA and its many Sunshine Coast members.

For group bookings please contact berardos directly on 5447 5666 or complete the attached booking form.
The Rolling Rock recovery dance party kicks off at 9PM on Tuesday. This years featured DJ is Neroli from Fluffy at Family nightclub in Brisbane. She is to be also featured at Toybox one of the featured Mardi Gras events in Sydney. Early bird tickets are now available at $15 or it is $20 at the door
DJ Neroli is affectionately known throughout Queensland as Brisbane's "Queen of Dance", a title she has worked hard to earn over her 12 years as a DJ. The journey began in late 1993 when a friend who knew of Neroli's passion & extensive music collection gave her the opportunity of a lifetime & asked her to DJ at a privately organised dance party. DJing was something she'd never even considered (as she always dreamed of being a "rockstar"), but never being one to turn down an opportunity she went for it. Neroli filled the floor that night for 5 hours, with no mixing skills but with a programming talent she was born with. The rest is history. Regular gigs started coming through & Neroli decided it was time to teach herself how to mix. Without owning turntable for the first 3 1/2 years of her career she learnt the hard way, in public. This is something that she values rather than regrets as she feels that it has given her better skills. She now holds residencies at the top clubs in QLD - FAMILY (Brisbanne)& PLATINUM (Gold Coast. While DJing Neroli was also lead singer & rhythm guitarist for a local Brisbane band "Velour" for 4 years. She is currently venturing into the field of production work where she hopes to bring all these skills together. That "Rockstar" dream will be fulfilled yet!
Horizons infamous pool party is on Wednesday this year and promises to be as much fun as ever. Free entry from 2PM with a BBQ for$10 at 6PM. BYO booze and disposable boyfriends plus beach towels.
The Fraser Island Safari is on Thursday. It is a great way to chill out and mix and mingle with lots of our international and interstate guests.
A final Recovery BBQ pool side breakfast at Horizons is set down for Friday. So it looks like another great day in the pool and to consummate that 'holiday romance'
As special welcome back again this year for our friends from Phoenix, Christchurch, London, Fort Lauderdale, New York, Atlanta and other ports. For some of these guys it's their third and forth return visit.
Finally remember to spread the word. We need as many as possible to support these events in order to build on five years of a BIG effort.
