NATIONAL RAN COOKS REUNION

Friday 7th March to Monday 10th March 2014


 
 

 

 

 

In November 2014 Albany WA will be hosting the celebration of the ANZAC troops and support ships departing for Gallipoli. At this point in time we are unsure of what ships, people etc are participating. We understand that ships taking part(this will include cruise ships) will arrive Albany waters on the 30th and 31st of October 2014 and depart on the 1st November 2014. Currently the info we are working on is not from official sources, but Doug Ryan who lives in Mt Barker is in the throes of correcting that situation. Once that occurs we will be in a position to advise actual the actual programme.

The sole purpose in publicising this event on our web site is to gauge interest of caravanners and others who are interested in attending this event. Before I continue let there be no misunderstanding, this will "not be a reunion". As this is the centenary of the fleet departing Albany, we in the west thought it would be an event we could certainly support, as its only a six hour drive from Perth and a beaut spot as well. Therefore we are inviting anyone interested to join us. There will be no registration process or major functions organised - it will simply be a get together.

We understand that accommodation which includes caravan parks will be in short supply and therefore will need to booked well in advance. It might therefore be possible for every one to stay at the same venue.

Ok in a nutshell anyone who is interested please contact me and we will go from there.
