Message Just an update on the TS LISMORE appeal.
We have over $1000 in the kitty and are awaiting a response from the local contact in Ballina as to just what is the best way to help the Cadet Unit.

Will keep you informed.

Message Barney,

As part of "The Powers That Be" let me add a little enlightenment. Following Mildura, we got a lot of feedback to the tune that three years to the next reunion was too long to wait, and so, we reduced it to two years. The plan is to have the reunions in the second half of the year, and alternate between the warmer north, and the colder south, so to prevent frostbite, southern venues will be around October, and the northern ones around June/July. We have to factor in public and school holidays, and the effect they have on accommodation prices, as we do want as many as possible to be able to attend (and to be able to afford it!)

Message At the end of the 2008 reunion at Mildura they told us they would hold the next one in 2011 to get it out of the same year as the REMs reunion. Somehow it got changed to 2010 and in June. I don't go anywhere in June.....can you imagine a reunion in Melbourne in June? North of the Sunshine Coast maybe, but certainly not south of where I live at beautiful South West Rocks. Can I suggest to the powers that be that they have the next reunion next year, and have it Oct like they used to, and that will get it away from the REMs reunions.
Regards
Barney

Message Well another great reunion has come to an end ... bring on the next.
I wish to extend my heartfelt thanks to the organisers of the Ballina Reunion for the 2010 bash, a fantastic event in every way.
I had the opportunity to re-establish ties with many people who I hadn't seen in over 20 years and two who had been MIA for 32 years. Sadly some of them have not been too well during recent years but they were there with smiles on their faces and enjoying the moment. One of my long time mates whom I spent Saturday afternoon with walking through the Maritime Museum reminded me of our runs ashore in some of the hell holes of the world, each of us guarding each others back to ensure we all got home safely, it all came so naturally and without us having to ask for it. That's just what we did voluntarily as we were looking after our brothers. We were, and are still, family.
Thank you all for making my weekend so enjoyable and memorable. I love you all.
Sam

Message Ex Greenies Hec hart, Darby Ashton and myself recently visited Hong Kong and Singapore to revive our memories. At Sembawang Dockyard we were shown through the RAN facilities by Lt Cdr Rachel Thompson RAN, the RAN Liaison Officer. The staff are a bit short of historical photos and they would welcome contributions of photos that represent the RAN and the dockyard that could be displayed by them. The email address is ransing@singnet.com.sg
