Come meet some new people, take the chance to hang out and get to know each other! If nothing else, you may ‘win’ a few new friends… or our Trivia ‘prize’ (winner determined by ‘draw’)!

If you want more than ‘snacks’… You can enjoy lunch at Sunrise Cafe – during the fun and receive a discount off your meal!
