The association are pleased to announce that this year’s event will be held in Portsmouth on the weekend of Friday 12th October.  Ian and Dave visited the city in late-2017 to arrange the venue and accomodation and can now confirm that attendees will be staying in the Royal Maritime Club on Queen Street (many may know the club, by its more affectionate name of the 4 o'clock club).

B&B accomodation will be as per usual for the Friday & Saturday departing on the Sunday morning. The Saturday evening Gala Dinner will also be held at The Royal Maritime Club.  The costs are below but please be aware if you are not a fully paid member for 2017 to 2018 the prices will be plus £20.

**Please note, that if you are driving to Portsmouth, the Royal Maritime Club has limited car-parking space so please bear this in mind.

what events are planned?
Meet and Greet | Friday Evening
Attendees start arriving Friday afternoon for an informal meet-and-greet.
The AGM | Saturday Morning
After breakfast, the Annual General Meeting will be held on Saturday morning and a gala dinner the same evening. The AGM and the association are particularly happy to see newer attendees take part.  The meeting will discuss the following year’s reunion and the current state of the association.  We will also be discussing Bob Taylor and Ian Hurley’s decision to stand-down from the positions of Treasurer & Secretary. We pride ourselves in being relatively informal so a healthy debate is normal. There will be a book to sign and association memorabilia to buy.

Sightseeing | Saturday Afternoon
Once the AGM is concluded attendees usually gather at around 11:00hrs for a visit to the local area.  
Portsmouth Historic Dockyard is only a short walk away from the the Royal Maritime Club so it is expected that many attendees will drift in that direction or visit local pubs remembered from their time in service.

Gala Dinner | Saturday Evening
This year the dinner will be hosted at the Royal Maritme Club. Full details of the menu will be posted in due course.  To view, and choose options from the menu click here.

Farewell | Sunday Morning
After breakfast attendees set off homeward bound.  There is no formal gathering on Sunday but many of us have shared journeys home so gather before heading towards the airport, train or coach station; or our cars.
