Greetings to you all,
The Reunion Committee have been beavering away and have now got a program sorted.
A copy follows this newsletter.
While we have 140 persons registered, (not all have paid☹), there is room for more. There is a cap on the numbers
that can be accommodated in camp so if you haven’t registered and are considering attending please register now.
There are a number of activities being planned and there will be something for any children attending
on the night of the Reunion Dinner (Saturday).
Again we say, once you have paid for your registration, accommodation and food, as previously advised,
your only cost will be for drinks.
At this point we wish you and yours a safe and happy Christmas and New Year.
Time is rolling on at a fast clip so to help your planning we have put out the programme for the weekend
and the instructions for your arrival and comfort while you are with us.
Please particularly note the arrival/registration procedure. You will not be admitted to the Camp without your ID lanyard.
For the few who are arriving on Saturday, please call Gordon on 027 544 2882 on arrival to arrange
for someone to meet with you to issue your Registration Pack.
The other important thing to note is that we need any special dietary requirements to be notified as soon as possible.
We do not have menus as yet but the caterers will do their best to accommodate any special needs.
Roll on April.
The Reunion plans are forging ahead.
The Reunion 2017 Committee, Andy Peters, Gordon Nairn, Sony Hone, Mike Pehi,
John White, met in Waiouru recently and have come up with a realistic plan.
There was discussions with the Waiouru Camp Administrators about accommodation and meals.
The meeting as very positive and the Community are looking forward to seeing V4 and 6RAR on ANZAC Day 2017.
The plans are for a Saturday night Formal Dinner, (medals to be worn etc.)
A formal welcome on the Army Marae
A hangi dinner, with an opportunity for all to be involved with the preparation
The use of the heated covered pool and the gym
More details to be sent out later.
The one thing that was made very clear was that the Reunion Committee was to supply a Nominal Roll of all those
attending three weeks prior and that all reunion attendees would require photo ID to gain admittance to the Camp.
This means that there will be NO late registrations so get yourself registered ASAP.
Currently there are 71 registered so come on and join the crowd, send those registration in ASAP
