The second GID Christmas Party built on the success of last year's event...and how! 170 revellers ate, drank, danced and celebrated the beginning of the Christmas season. The champagne reception, kindly sponsored by Dental Directory, got everyone in the party mood and the cocktail bar was in great demand. Sadly the photobooth people did not show up but Archie Manners's slight of hand kept everyone entertained.
The highlight of the evening was the unveiling of the vodka luge, excellently demonstrated by Sarah Farrier, and the anatomical detail of the sculpture left us in doubt that it was an upper molar. As the evening wore on the molar developed external root resorption that was untreatable except by antisceptic irrigation by vodka which increased the difficulty of collecting the vodka. Sadly this treatment will not be written up in the BDJ.
The band played and the disco blared until the evening finished in the early hours of Saturday.
The busiest Autumn ever! The Mouth Cancer Charity Day was an outstanding success with well over 300 delegates enjoying a stunning walk around the racecourse in clear Autumnal sunshine and a very emotional and thought provoking study day. GID raised £3000 for the charity which, with the gift aid, brings the total to £3750 - a fantastic achievement. The event received excellent coverage in the Gloucestershire Echo, Radio Gloucestershire and Cotswold Life and will raise the profile of mouth cancer and GID.
This was swiftly followed by a masterclass in anterior composites both the theory and the practical given by Jason Smithson. Other groups had their own meetings and there is no doubt that GID is thriving.
The annual wine tasting event was soon upon us and was the usual rip roaring success. The winner of the Nick Saunders Cup was Lucy Conrad, another new name in the wine tasting hall of fame. The champagne was sponsored by SDI and Dental Directory provided some fantastic spot prizes.
And so the festive season begins. The inaugural GID Christmas takes place on December 19th at the Racecourse with all sorts of fun features, magician, photobooth, live band, disco. A champagne reception is being provided by Dental Directory and food and wine are included. Its going to be a good start to Christmas week.
Mid January sees John Tiernan visit us with a much anticipated day on conflict resolution encompassing role play. Please make sure you have registered.
On behalf of the GID committees we wish all our members a Happy Christmas.
