Then it just got better...

Friday evening we attended the Land Rover Dealer of the Year celebration dinner...
The dinner was held at Quay Restaurant, again beautiful food by Peter Gilmore who greeted us and wished us a wonderful evening.
Salad of young garden vegetables, buffalo milk mozzarella, roasted almonds, lemon jam, herbs and flowers - pretty, eh?
Poached marron, rosehip, creme fraiche, French breakfast radishes, pomegranate, linaria flowers...
Fillet of grain fed beef, morel cream, braised mushrooms, roasted ancient grains...
Roasted blue eye, artichoke puree, baby leeks, ligurian olives, rocket, capers, fennell pollen...
Quay's seven texture valrhona chocolate cake ...
Jersey cream, salted caramel, prune, milk and sugar crystals ...

Now for the exciting part! Just before dessert was served they had the Dealer of the Year formalities... They announced the Metro DOTY then started talking about the Regional Dealer of the Year. They mentioned that they had attended the opening of the dealership's new showroom, then they mentioned ... lower SE of South Australia! Gus and I both shot a glance at each other - OMG they are talking about us!!!! They read out two very favourable customer service surveys then they announced
This is the Waterford crystal trophy that was presented to Angus.
My man with his award!
A very happy snap of us - my eye makeup was gone by then as I had a good blubber when he went up to receive the award. We were so shocked to win but in hindsight I know just how much Gus deserves this. He works long and hard to achieve the sales results, his integrity, honesty and love of the Land Rover product ensures customer satisfaction and without our team of staff (sales, admin, parts, service and detailing) to support us, it would not have been possible to win. We are about to clock up 25 years as owners of this business so its fantastic for Gus to earn this accolade.
Wow, wow, wow is all we can say!

Cheers - Joolz xx
