REUNION - FULLY BOOKED

Postby Bob_H » Wed Mar 05, 2014 3:08 pm

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT - Reunion
Our Reunion is now fully booked for Saturday (dinner and accommodation) and close to the limit for Friday - if you want to book accommodation for Friday do it now and you'll gain entry.

Message from Noah's Arc Committee

We would like to say that we are sorry if you intended to make a late booking for our Reunion but haven't been able to book in. Over the last six years or so the attendance at our annual dinner (Saturday) has been around 200 people, with 150 on Friday. There can be little doubt that the announcement that the Regimental Band would be joining us has had a major impact on numbers booking in. This announcement came long after we'd confirmed the location for 2014 and so couldn't be foreseen.

It should be noted that the date and location for our 2014 reunion was declared in April 2013 and, since then, we have had a mailed Newsletter, several emailed-Newsletters and constant updates via our Website and Facebook urging early booking.

Our Club has a policy of open arms - we never want to turn anyone away, but when all accommodation is taken and there is no more room at the functions, there is nothing we can do about it. People not booked in are welcome to come and meet their friends and enjoy the entertainment, but the Hotel have a proviso that their license does not allow them to serve alcohol to not-booked-in persons - you must use your own initiative in this matter.

Follow-Up Announcement

We recently announced closure of bookings for our Reunion with the additional notice that anyone attending who is not booked in would not be allowed to purchase alcoholic drinks. The reason given is that it would infringe the Hotel license, guests must be residents, or attending a function where food is served.

I'm now pleased to say that the Hotel, after some negotiation, have agreed to lay on a buffet for everyone not booked in for the dinner. The cost of this is just £7.50 per head and it will entitle anyone taking up this offer to avail themselves of the discounted bar (you'll save £7.50 on the reduced price of drinks :) )

However numbers are restricted - we have 277 booked in for dinner and the Hotel will not allow a greater attendance than 300 (Fire regs). If you are coming to the Reunion I strongly urge you to book in with the Hotel. Once these 23 places have been taken that's it!

Book in by calling the hotel on 01253 352723.

Maybe it is time to move somewhere bigger, I as well as others I am sure had other commitments through work and could not commit, so the thought of turning up and then not being able to get a drink doesn't, appeal very well. So I hope you enjoy and maybe next year.
ooh to be a gooner
