AN URGENT PLEA FROM BERNARD O, GERRY W, PATRICK O AND JOE LSEPTEMBER 2018 REUNION PLANS:

Some inter personal e-mails have passed between our Organiser, Bernard O’Neill and some members concerned with how the bookings were going and, indeed, whether the reunion was to go ahead at all.
The Association has no funds and Bernard, as others have found in the past, is in a dilemma between reserving rooms etc at Shrigley and Savio house in the hope that sufficient numbers will attend and being hit with penalty payments if too few actually turn up.
The last count was less than ten confirmations

The following message from Bernard shows the problem:
"A deposit was requested for all bookings, if not full payment received, and the balance to be paid by the July date. This was not a deadline for bookings.
As stated previously, without funds, cannot pay deposits and/or other expenses, and at the last meeting kindly requested bookings as soon as possible. In the letter that went out with the booking form, I also requested bookings asap.
Hope this helps clarify. Bernard"
One further point is that, although this September marks the 60th (Oh, good grief), anniversary of the 1958 intake, as always every, barely, surviving SOB is warmly invited.
PLEASE, GET TO YOUR PCs, TABLETS & PHONES.
