The program for our 50th Anniversary is pretty much now in place.
Now, despite its title, it is not yet totally set: as you can see there is still some minor detail to be sorted. We’ll follow up with updates as that information is available.
A few points:
The Friday night drinks will be at Olims – this is within stagger distance of the Rex for those staying there. The planning team thinks it gives better options for casual meals and chats than the Kingo for a biggish group.
The memorial service for our deceased classmates will be held at General Bridges grave, at this stage planned for 1100. We are looking at a wet weather option.
The response to the Sunday lunch at the Arboretum was overwhelming – unexpectedly so. This meant that the venue became unsuitable for our purposes. We are therefore planning to locate the activity at the Canberra Southern Cross Club Yacht Club on Lake Burley Griffin. This will likely be crowded on a Sunday if the weather is fine, but there is lots of public space between the club and the lake for us (and no doubt others!) to spread. This is an informal opportunity for relaxed catch ups, with meals and drinks available. If it’s wet – a possibility – there is room inside.
So far 20 have indicated attendance at the tour of RMC, and 12 wish to view their records. If you are not on either list and want to take part, please let us know. The museum has indicated that they will put on a comprehensive display of memorabilia and documents specific to our time there.
A final attendance list is below: please check it out. If you are not on the list, and haven’t been contacted, we are not expecting you! If you are on the list and not attending (even if some events) – please let us know. And if you’d like to join the RMC tour, and/or see your records, and that is not on the list, again let us know. The museum in particular go out of their way to provide exhibits, including scrap books and other memorabilia which may not be usually on display.
