General Meeting

7.30pm Friday 3 February 2023

West Adelaide Football Club

Milner Road



After the business section, about 80 minutes of super-8 colour film from Kym Kalleske’s collection will be shown by Mick Searle.  It’s from the mid to late 1980s, depicting lots of freight and passenger workings across most of the state.

Why not come in for a meal first (from 6pm) in the Bistro – good selection and prices.

All members, non-members and friends welcome
