OAS 40 Year Celebrations
« on: Oct 17, 2021, 06:41:02 »
Many thanks to everyone involved in organising yesterdays 40 Years of OAS.  It was lovely to catch up with people in person after all this time.  I really enjoyed the talk as well.
Cheers Delphine

Congratulations to the Organisers of the 40th Celebrations of the OAS, and to the large crowd for turning up. Saw a lot of old friends, and some new ones and those talks by Pieter and Greg ... that was something else. Brilliant. Perhaps Pieter can return and expand about his experiences....

I was one of the organisers, but was absolutely elated by the way everything went yesterday, there was a real buzz in the atmosphere, though I suspect some of this is due to every-one coming together after many many months of not doing so.

I thought both speeches were excellent, Pieter was so funny with all his anecdotes as was Greg with his usual wit. 

My congratulations go to Sue for her being the main co-ordinator for thinking of all those little things that made it work so well, I would never have thought of black cloths for the tables.  Also Elaine and whoever else did all that wonderful baking. 

A really successful event.  Looking forward to seeing the photos.

What a fantastic afternoon. The organisers did so well. Many faces from past years, so many people made an effort to attend.  A day to remember.

Thanks....

Rick Hewett has set up a folder on the OAS Gallery where we can post our Anniversary photos.   He asks that we:

* Give every photo a useful title.
* Add a short description to every photo.
* Put at least the date and place into the appropriate field.

I look forward to seeing pictures by members who attended - and publicising the photographs to members.

My first 6 are up already.
