A further REMINDER for all registered attendees.
Reunion registrations are Friday the 23rd from 1400 onwards at the Esplanade Hotel Fremantle. An outdoor resort area in the East wing has been set aside by hotel management, for Committee use registering, meeting and greeting. A very relaxing area with refreshment sales, tea and coffee stations, and comfortable resort decor.
The Civic reception for Communicators only, is that evening from 1800 at the Fremantle Town Hall. The City of Fremantle RSVP invitations were posted out early March, and are to be tendered for your admission at the venue. Non Communicator attendees are invited to remain (if they wish) at the Esplanade Hotel East wing area, to rejoin their partners at the conclusion of the Civic reception approximately 2000.
The Committee ‘Sundowner’ is Saturday the 24th from 1400 at the Fremantle Art Centre, for all registered attendees. Your RANCB reunion ‘name card’ being issued at registrations, are to be worn for admission and recognition by the catering staff. Fremantle tourist trambus shuttle return transport from the Esplanade Hotel is planned before and after the event, concluding at 1800. So remember, if you have no ‘name card’ you go hungry, thirsty and walk !
A full resume of the final three days activities will be included in the ‘registration package’, with latest updates.
On behalf of the organising committee, we wish you all a safe and happy journey to Western Australia, for what is planned to be a memorable National ’99 Reunion.
