Port Fairy Regional Reunion - 24-26Mar17 - Report
1. Another fantastic Regional reunion has been done and dusted. It was a great event as usual and the wash up comments have been very positive. the staff at the Big4 holiday park in Port Fairy were very welcoming with anything we requested being no trouble at all. So much so that they have asked me to advise all RANCBA members that wish to stay with them will receive a discount.
That is all members.
2. The BAMSTONE visit was a real eye opener and was very encouraging to see a home grown firm in a country location employing 50 people and doing so well. A very unique business indeed. Refer to Garys photos for info on this business.
All activities went off very well with the dinner on Saturday night a big hit. This was helped along by our 93 year old guest and reunion attendee, Barry Downs an ex world 2 veteran sparker enlightening us all with events at HMAS Harman and the Pacific region during the war. It was very touching to witness the standing ovation Barry received. His wife Stella was just as inspiring, she is a spritely 92 year old.
3. Next year 2018 we will be holding our Regional reunion in Phillip Island over the Vietnam Veterans weekend in August. The RSL will be involved, as will the Vietnam museum and of course the Fairy Penguins. We would love to see a huge turn up to this event as we will be under our banner on Vietnam Veterans day (Saturday) with a large contingent of other Vets. There will be plenty of information re this Regional Reunion so stay posted.
4. We may however throw in a catch up weekend in the Queenscliff, Ocean Grove and Barwon Heads area during the lengthy period between the reunions. We will discuss it at our next committee meeting. Stay posted again as we will make sure it is interesting with a varied format.
5. So that's it until our Pacific Islands and FIJI cruise in August . There is still room for those that would like to join us. Any other queries please contact me on 0418 524 067.
