Reunion Bulletin # 5



Hello everyone…

We are looking forward to welcoming everyone to Wellington in two months’ time..  It’s going to be a good week with our special Main Event dinner on Thursday, November 20.  And there are still tickets for the Rolling Stones in Auckland on November 22 if anyone is interested. 

I’ve been away but am now on deck, meeting Victoria University Chancellor Ian McKinnon this week to go over details.  
Look out for the Victorious magazine article in October starring KK Chong.  And our committee member, David White, is coming up to Kuala Lumpur for work this week carrying details of the reunion.  It’s all go.

Boomrock on Sunday, November 16thWe need to confirm:

Our possible Farming/Sporting/Gourmet day at Boomrock needs 15 participants to make it happen.  We’ve been asked to confirm as it’s a popular spot.  

Could you let me know if you definitely want to come… by Monday, 15 September?    Local Kiwis are welcome too.  Details are below.

 Registrations and Payment
There’s still room at the Reunion so you are welcome to encourage your friends and colleagues to come…and confirm by payment if you haven’t already.  
Registrations are coming in but we need lots of Kiwis now to fill it up, just like our Malaysian friends did in Kuala Lumpur.  So let your friends know if you are coming.  Local Kiwis are welcome at any event.

Reunion Bulletin # 4



Hello everyone…
You are warmly invited again to the International reunion in November.  Encourage your friends and colleagues to come…and confirm by payment if you haven’t already.  Celebrate that we’ve moved on from those damp, mouldy flats and long hours behind the bar of the Royal Oak!!



I didn’t even go to Vic but I’m going to every event and telling everyone how great it’s going to be. 
Registrations are coming in but we need lots of Kiwis now to fill it up, just like our Malaysian friends did in Kuala Lumpur.  So let your friends know if you are coming.  They are very welcome.

Local Kiwis are welcome at any event, but the special sessions are the Day At Vic (Monday) and The Main Event (Thursday).

Boomrock
We’ve organised a Day at Boomrock as an alternative activity on Sunday, 16 November 2014.  Boomrock is a spectacular farm about half an hour’s drive from Wellington.  You would be picked up in a bus for the drive, taken out to the Boomrock Lodge for morning tea.  Down in the woolshed the farmer will shear a sheep or two for you, and there are plenty of other activities including archery, knife throwing, golf hitting and even BMW testing.  A very good lunch is included and transport will be provided home.  Alternatively you can go by helicopter!!!!  We need 15 people to confirm and make it happen as it is not open to the public that day.
 Cost:  $185 per person includes return coach transport leaving the Museum Hotel in Wellington at 9am, morning tea, sheep shearing in woolshed at Boomrock, petanque and horseshoe throwing, walks, gourmet four course lunch.  Depart 3pm for Museum Hotel.
