Hi all,

more stuff to come from last sunday: it was about dinner time, so we got ready for a little walk.

We found one strange crooner in the lobby... LOL!

Arrived at the dinner location right at the seaside. A great place for the final P-DAY dinner.

Panerai donated a PAM390 (!) for the P-DAY#10 DU charity auction, supporting the sporting wheelies http://www.sportingwheelies.org.au). What a great gesture! It was engraved on the backside with P-DAY insigna and presented in a nice case from The Hour Glass. It was shown to the P-DAY members so everybody was up to date for the highlight of the charity auction.

Hammer and our MC for that evening: Robbie-Do.

Lets get the party started - Cheers! 1-800 A$$$K GARY representin' happy.gif

"are you serious???" Luke and Asi chattin' about the upcoming Asshat Award.

"Grahams Fathers Watch" in the spotlight.

random smiles...

Alan was reading a letter from Angelo Bonati which he received shortly before P-DAY...

[linked image]
...and so the audience was listening.

After the raffle some items came up for the charity auction to support the sporting wheelies:http://www.sportingwheelies.org.au/
A handmade leather suitcase for watches was auctioned by Gush, it was a tough battle with an aussie paneristi... Congratulations, mate! Fill it up soon with Panerai watches... nice!

A watch handmade by Hammer found a good new owner. Alan enjoys working and restoring vintage Seiko divers a lot and one of them he put up for the charity auction. The winner wants to stay anonymous, but anyway - thanks for the great help for the sporting wheelies!!! Congratulations and always enjoy wearing this special piece! I like the crown position at 4'o'clock a lot, a very cool case and high bezel. Nice...!

Amanda (sitting behind the laptop) created a wonderful slideshow of the entire event with many photos - thanks a lot, it was great watching all these captured moments.

Excitement was growing about the upcoming PAM390... drum roll...biddings were floating in and it went higher and higher... it ended with a fantastic price!

[linked image]
Of course there was a bid for that price - not by one only person in the room, but by every P-DAY member. Hands were going up all over and we found a "very surprised" Hammer - youbet! happy.gif

[linked image]
Eddie was explaining to Hammer that all attendees of P-DAY wanted to have the watch for him as a gift and to say thank you for all what he did for making this P-DAY become real. Nobody else than Hammer deserved this watch and to support the sporting wheelies was everyones wish. You deserve it so much, mate!

[linked image]
A proud son was speaking to his father to underline that this watch belongs to him. What a special moment that was (Baxter - you are a cool cat! I got goose skin during your words for your father and with the age of 11 years you did a great speech, Dunnerkeil!!!)

[linked image]
(This photo needs no caption. Enjoy the moment and keep it in your memories!)

[linked image]
Hammer took the mic and sent out his words of thanks. Not needed, mate - its all good and so deserved. We all who took part could not have been happier to surprise you...! happy.gif

[linked image]
A priceless moment for sure. Dee's face says it all. Big smiles all around. Very moving...

[linked image]
Baxter adopted me as his "bash buddy" LOL!!!

Stay tuned for 10.8 and again: thanks for looking!
