Long Lunch

From John McNamara:

Friday 25 June – FNQ / SEQ and Northern Rivers Chapter, A small but very select gathering for classmates and partners at The Port Office Hotel was held on Friday. Bob Shaw was in Brisbane to witness The Lions thrash Geelong and then shouting bottles of red for all comers. Around our table we also had Jon Mander-Jones, Elph and Sandy, Peter and Helen Teys, Maurie and Joan and Marg and I . We shared lots of memories this time with a focus on Dunners Athletics .

Bob , Maurie and Peter ( all past jock strappers )  were comparing themselves to one of Dunners best athletes, Rudy Urgang  and their stories of his attributes capturing the girls attention !!!

Like our Sydney brothers we also forgot to get a photo – Silly Billys!

Sydney Classmates Lunch – 11 June 2021

As is the ‘tradition’, Sydney-area based classmates and a couple of ring-ins (the Crans and the Gibsons) met at The Orient Hotel at The Rocks last Friday. Food and company were excellent – and so much of a good time was had that everyone forgot to get a group photograph!

But for the record, the following were there: Bob Blue, Trish & David Cran, John & Roseanne Croxson, Steve & Guiliana Despoges, Chris & Sue Gibson, Gerry & Annette Jones, Peter & Annaliese Lawrence, Peter & Sue Martyn, Peter and Gayle McCann, Duncan & Carmel McInnes, Don Muirhead, John and Vivienne Price and Paddy Ryan.

And a reminder: all class members are always welcome.
