Greetings and salutations and thanks to those who wished us well and said we were doing a great job!
This is to catch you up on the plans so far and to advise you of details of both functions and payment arrangements.
SATURDAY, 1st February 2014
Venue; Mosman RSL Club.
719 Military Rd,
MOSMAN NSW 2088
(02) 9960 2888
Parking: There is some undercover parking available. Enter via Gouldsbury St.
We suggest you arrive at the club between 6:30 and 7:00pm and make yourself known to Jan or Helen at the Registration Table. We have decided to eliminate the previously mentioned “Complimentary drink” and suggest you make your way to the bar and organize a drink for yourself. Platters of canapés will be served from 6:30pm.
Introduce yourself and play the perennial reunion game of “I would have recognized you anywhere” or the “I would never have recognized you” version of the same game. Dawn will be on “meet and greet” duty and will be able to answer your questions.
There will be a memorabilia display and if you have any interesting pieces we would be happy to display these also. Please make sure they are named and while all care will be taken we can‘t be responsible for the safe return of the items.
At 8:00 pm we would like you to make your way to the dining area and choose your seats. There will be some “housekeeping” and you will be introduced to our MC, Dave Weeden. Dinner will begin with an entrée, followed by a main and dessert using the alternate drop method. After dinner there will be a short speech from our guest Maurie Saxby, followed by live Skype links.
Tony is planning a visual display during the evening and is seeking photos. Please forward these directly to Tony: firstname.lastname@example.org in jpeg format.
The evening will conclude at 11:30pm.
The cost for the dinner will be $ 85 per person payable before 10 January 2014
Please contact one of the team below for making payment.
SATURDAY, 2nd February 2014
Venue: Middle Head Café,
1110 Middle Head Rd, MOSMAN NSW 2088

After a great night’s sleep you should make your way to ASOPA for breakfast. We have made loose arrangements for breakfast at the Middle Head Café. This is a regular café and we are expected to arrive in dribs and drabs from about 9:00am. We do not have an exclusive booking and they will be catering to their regulars at the same time. You will order from their regular breakfast men and pay individually. At some time please make your way to the ASOPA precinct and take a leisurely walk. Further details will be available at the dinner.
