Thought I'd at least see some reports of the evenings events? You must all be still in bed?

Paul , et al,

I'll write a full report sometime tomorrow once I've got all of the accounts and everything else done, but here's couple of quotes:

1. (not sure who - said to Mick McGowan) I've got a complaint! - These should be every month!

2. I came down at around 7:30am on Sunday and ran straight into Smudge Smith (won't say which one yet) and said 'Morning Smudge, you're up early' - 'early?', he says, 'I haven't been to bed yet!',

I agree with john. Maybe we say this every year but this could be our best.

Really good evening, good food, good company and just a shame that those of you still alive, who didn't show, missed a good night. Hope you make the effort next year. About time some of the ex 14/20th officers made an effort and came. After all we're all ex 14th/20th.

My only complaint is that I've got a sore throat trying to make myself heard above the disco.

A link to some photo's ... If anyone one wants a copy of any image ... send me an email and I'll email an image that you'll be able to get a print off at Boots/Asda/Jessops or similar. It is possible to save the image direct from the screen using "Save picture as". I'll also put them on my website Hawks Pages when I get a bit more time.

First Noahs Arc reunion I have attended and it will definitely not be my last.
Too many faces to mention.
A big thank you to the Honey Monster for making my wallet a lot lighter on the way home. :D :D :D :D
Congratulations to Bob and the Committee for a very well run event.

Live life to the full!

Hi everybody who attended over the weekend if I didn,t get around to seeing you I,ll have to blame Meeks for leading me astray I thought I had left that damn gorilla back in army where it belongs but the bugger must have found me as my room was wrecked on Sunday morning. Many thanks to everybody who made the weekend possible this one was my first but definitely won,t be my last , All the breast to everyone and see you all next year if I,ve recovered,JockH(Honeymonster).
