Adelaide turned on great variety in the weather department during the conference. The weather for the outdoor party at Adelaide Showground was rather chill and then the rain came right on cue as the event wound up.
Unfortunately the event was designed for summer and this was not a summers night. The event was spread out around the event space making it very difficult for any chance to keep warm.
Fortunately though the band really got the guests warmed up and there were some fancy demonstrations on the dancefloor.
Maclaren Vale wineries provided sampling of their products and I’m sure did a good trade with follow up orders. While there was plenty of wines to keep us going the queues for food were totally unacceptable.
The after-party for this event was held a nightclub called Swish On Terrace – certainly did not have the ambiance of the previous night and with no DJ on duty it was left to the guests to pump up the music – much to the chagrin of the manager.
The interaction with a couple of Sydney detectives who happened to be in Adelaide for some reason was interesting to watch.
