KBGS Annual Reunion, 2018 details and Reservation Form

OLD KEIGHLIANS’ REUNION, 2018

The next annual Old Keighlians’ Reunion, the sixteenth since 1995, will be held at the Keighley Rugby Union Football Club House, Skipton Road, Utley, between noon and late afternoon on Friday, 21 September, 2018.

The price of the buffet lunch this year will still be £17 per head – the same as the last four years. Wives and partners are, as always, very welcome, as are indeed, and especially, widows of our deceased ex-school-fellows.
I do hope you will be able to be there to meet old friends, and make new ones, on what continues to be a convivial occasion.

If you happen to be aware of any other Old Boys who may not know about the event could you please put them in touch with me at the address below or at a.d.thompson@hull.ac.uk.

Many thanks.

Please send cheques (BEFORE Friday, 14 September, 2018) payable to:

A.D. Thompson

to

‘Coanwood’, Manor Brow, Keswick, Cumbria, CA12 4AW

With all good wishes, in the meantime,

Yours sincerely,

Doug Thompson

My wife/partner/other and I wish to attend the Reunion

I enclose a cheque for £________ in payment for ______ buffet lunch(es)

NB I am afraid that, given the by now prohibitive cost of even second class postage, only Old Boys who have attended one or more recent annual reunions, or have acknowledged this letter, whether able to attend or not this year, will be contacted about future gatherings.

Sorry I am not over in the UK to attend the reunion . Will make it next time with luck . My best wishes to everyone there on Friday .There isn't a day goes by without some memory of the old school comes to mind and I reflect on my good fortune in having such an education with some old but dedicated teachers . Enjoy the tucker and the conversations and give a toast to KBGS.

We'll do that Mike - and one to Mike and Mary as well! I'll let you have the date of next year's 'do' (likely to be earlier in September) as soon as I have it.

Best wishes to you both,

Doug

Re: KBGS Annual Reunion, 2018 details and Reservation Form

The case is almost packed, and I aim to be on the road north early tomorrow morning. There will be time to catch up with a few who I cannot persuade to cough up a few shillings for the lunch before sitting down in the Rugby Club on Friday lunchtime. I’m eagerly looking forward to the ‘do’. Worried though by your comment Doug, that next years reunion might be earlier in September. if it is, this may be my last. Still, you can’t please everyone all the time. Is the date determined by the availability of the Club or by ourselves?

Hello Doug, What no photos yet of the reunion? Hope all went well, Mike

Re: KBGS Annual Reunion, 2018 details and Reservation Form

Hi Mike, As you know, I usually take a few 'pics myself at the Reunion and I usually wait until the 'Heading' comes up on the main page before I download. Eventually I found a way of doing it. If you click on 'browse all photos', then click on 'Reunions', keep scrolling down every page and clicking on the extreme right of the numbers shown(bottom right)until you get to the number '28' and you should be on the 2018 pics. Hope you find them ,Mike. David
