FirstClass Christmas Party 2012

We would like to thank everyone who attended our sold out 2012 Christmas party. It was a really enjoyable evening and was great to be able to put some faces to names. Thank you all for making it such a memorable night.

We were honoured to hand out our annual First Class Award on the night. This award celebrates and congratulates our greatest supporters. The award, business class tickets with Etihad Airways to anywhere in the world, is given to one of our top 10 supporters. The award was drawn on the night and was won by Simon Slavin. Follow this link to learn more about our supporter award, like how you can get involved and win!

We had a few other lucky winners on the night but you are all winners in our eyes:


  •  5 nights complimentary stay at VillaM in Koh Samui won by Corey and Gus Medina
  • Meal for 2 at Bather’s Pavillion with Orion’s signature chef won by Linda Julian and Mark Midwinter


There was a great turnout for the Best “Bond” girl with some very classy dresses and we had to defer the decision to the FirstClass Team who eventually decided upon Octopussy (Penny Jones).

The hottest contended prize was for the best “Bond”. After a steward’s enquiry, plus a public vote we still could not separate the two favourites Roger Moore (Ray Jones) and Sean Connery (Hugh Stowell). Not even Sean’s display of an Aston Martin car key could sway the crowd. Marty suggested an arm-wrestle but we eventually decided to split up the two combatants and declare a draw before diplomatic relations became strained. Well done gentlemen on a splendid display.

We also would like to thank all the suppliers for their assistance in making it a night to remember. We do not invite any old company to our event and they must show that they are leaders in their field and we can verify that Etihad Airways, Tauck Tours, Orion Expedition Cruises and VillaM are all top of the pile.

Most of all we would like to thank you all who attended for making it one of the most memorable nights of all of our careers.
