It has now been a tradition for the Conquer team to stop with the nation to enjoy the Melbourne Cup celebrations. This year we all meet at the Norman Hotel, Woolloongabba to enjoy a sit down lunch and a few beers. It was great to see Amanda and Akane join the celebrations with their lovely young daughters, Olivia & Archie.

Rowan and Al had a moment to recall the venues and restaurants that Conquer has celebrated the Melbourne Cup over the years:

2005: Restaurant in Seven Hills (Now a Thai restaurant near the round about)

2006: 16 Footer Boat Club, Bulimba (Now closed)

2007: Café Citrus

2008: Lord Stanley, East Brisbane

2009: Norman Hotel, Woolloongabba

2010: East League Club, Coorparoo

2011: Carina Leagues Club, Carina

2012: East Leagues, Coorparoo

A great time was had by all this year and the Conquer tradition of getting together and having a good time will continue.
