Annual Reunion 15
The fruits of last year's Questionnaire were really there for all to see at the 2011 Reunion. Our best-planned yet - and
it showed. Good company, good food, good entertainment - approaching the best ever according to some comments we've had.
A Relaxing Thursday
No 'Ladies Night Out' this year. Just shopping, chatting, eating and, of course, a few 'wets' in the evening to keep the
throat moist. We were blessed with glorious Spring weather and walking the Queen's Prom of Blackpool is always a pleasure -
despite the road & tram works!
Oompah, Oompah - ...
Friday began with not the best breakfast we've ever had but the cream teas in the afternoon made up somewhat for it. As
evening approached the Committee were very busy preparing the Warbreck function room - re-arranging tables, hanging the
bunting, laying out the table decorations and genrally giving the place a real Bavarian feel for our German Fun Night.
The night proved a great success prompting loads of the best medicine - laughter. Our Oompah Band (The Blue Barons,
really knew how to get people involved and - get involved we did. Oompah blowing, tamberine rattling, hose-pipe playing
and yodelling were all part of the night:
And what a buffet - simple enough but all agreed the bratwurst, bockwurst, schnitzeln und pommes frites jogged the memory
back to our times in BAOR.
Abba daba doo
A five-course banquet got us in the mood on Saturday evening. Pate (great start), Muligatawny Soup (even better), Sorbet
(nice cooler after the chilli soup), Beef Wellington that had the look of a large sausage roll! and a nice dessert ended
Then it was a few speeches followed by Mick announcing the toasts for 'Absent Friends' and 'The Men at Medicina' (this
being the 16th April.) The Annual Draw saw Geoff Bingham claim the top prize and then the Auction saw some interesting
items bring in some added funds to our Club.
Two beautiful young ladies (twins Hayley & Katie) then entertained us with terrific rendition of all of Abba's greatest
hits before the 'noisy' DJ took over to see us into the early hours. Another great Noahs Arc night.
If there were any negatives it was the sharing of the hotel with the two wedding receptions, the one on Friday crowding
all of the Albany area for most of the afternoon and Saturday's seemed to turn the place into a kindergarten!
The Annual Draw again took place and the fortunate winners were:
Congratulations to all of them.
