I have been to Marouchidore and talked entertaiment rep and book their hall for 8-9 May 2018.
Tried for 5th of May, which would have been 52 nd anniversary launch HMAS Brisbane, but that is long weekend in Qld, hence a higher rate of hire.
A steering crew have been formed to get the ball rolling, John McMillan, Trevor George, Al Humphreys and myself.
At the moment I cannot even give you a ROM. It depends on the numbers of attendees and generosity of board of directors to whom I have to write and ask for waiver of hiring fees.
Therefore I have to give you a deadline of 2359 on 30 June 2017
I know that you all can recognise me and John Mac but what if we cannot recognise you ?
Hence name of all participants to Con and John so we can issue with name tag at Meet and Greet.
Bank account will be opened shortly with Trevor, Ally and Con as signatories, as ANY TWO sign.
As at some stage RSL will ask us for deposit on the venueAt the moment ,we see it as 1800-2300 8th may 2018 as Meet and Greet with finger food and CASH TILL.
1800-2300 on 9th 2018 sit down dinner and once again Cash TILL. ALSO AGM WILL BE HELD BEFORE DINNER, ALL POSITIONS DECLARED OPEN AND ANY N0MINATION TOGETHER SECONDER TO THE CONTACTS BELOW.
1200-170 on 10th 2018 BBQ or Picnic at HMAS Brisbane Memorial at Alexandra Head, details to be discussed with City Council.
