HMAS BRISBANE REUNION 2018

 

Dear all

I have been to Maroochydore and talked with entertainment rep and booked their hall for  8-9th May 2018.
Tried for 5th of May, which would have been 52nd anniversary launch HMAS Brisbane, but that is long weekend in Qld, hence a higher rate of hire.
A steering crew have been formed to get the ball rolling, John McMillan, Trevor George, Al Humphreys and myself.
At  the moment I cannot even give you a ROM. It depends on the numbers of attendees and generosity of board of directors to whom I have to write and ask for waiver of hiring fees.
Therefore I have to give you a deadline  of  2359 on 30 June 2017
I  know that you all can recognise me and John Mac but what if we cannot recognise you?
Hence name of all participants to Con and John so we can issue you with your name tag at Meet and Greet.
A bank account will be opened  shortly with Trevor, Ally and Con as signatories,  as ANY TWO can sign. 
As at some stage the RSL will ask us for a deposit on the venue. At the moment, we see it as 1800-2300 8th May 2018 as a Meet and Greet with finger food and CASH TILL.
1800-2300 on 9th May 2018 sit down dinner and once again Cash TILL. ALSO A AGM WILL BE HELD BEFORE DINNER, ALL POSITIONS DECLARED OPEN AND ANY N0MINATION TOGETHER WITH SECONDER TO THE CONTACTS BELOW.
1200-1700 on 10th  May 2018, a BBQ or Picnic at the HMAS Brisbane Memorial at Alexandra Head, details to be discussed with City Council.
