Old Blues' Day : Who's going?

Post by kerrensimmonds » Mon Mar 15, 2010 11:29 am

Have just signed up....

Wonder how the 60+ years on reunion went at the weekend, and whether any of those who attended will be back again for OBD?

Neill was going.

Perhaps he hasn't sobered up yet !

I'm not sure about OB's day yet. I may just turn up on the day if I'm available.

Whoops! Thought it was this weekend just gone. I see that it is 'closed' now anyway, due to over-subscription. You should have a whale of a time. Fingers crossed for good weather!

It has just struck me, that "Over-subscription" for an event for Old,Old Blues, who left prior to 1960, may be a testament to longevity --- but can you deny ANY of we Old Buffers the opportunity of visiting the School ?

Watch out --- Old Blues Day will be the next restriction --- only for those who subscribe to "Present Policy" !!

(Old Buffers does NOT, of course include the Hertford Ladies ------ hastily added !!)

I got my acknowledgement yesterday... having booked and paid online. I thought the envelope would contain tickets or something, but all it had was a print out of my order, which I could have done myself and saved them the cost of the postage, of printing it out for me, and the time in handwriting my name and address on the envelope!

Kirri will be there and so will I , assuming that I am back from Finland by then. We are flying out on Wednesday in time for our grandson's baptism in Turku Cathedral on Easter Sunday. However, I have only booked a one-way ticket. I should be back some time between April 13th and 24th, depending on how long it is before they throw me out! Fear not, though; I shall not miss the forum - I shall be taking the laptop with me, if I can possibly squeeze it in with the mounting piles of cheddar, chocolate and assorted medications - might even manage to pack some clothes as well, but it is looking increasingly unlikely!
