Hi All
Another historic luncheon/meeting in the La Piazza Italian Forum.
A total attendance of 66 ARROWS including 4 Virgins were there to party on…..
We did a tribute to Nina Raye (see next email) for her brilliant career and a tremendous body of work and welcomed 4 new ARROWS to our tribe. See attachments above ……

Bosco Bosanac for his work with the 50s & 60s surfing band the Atlantics,
Di Heaton and her outstanding contribution to ‘The Dance’
Colin Duff and Tom Speros FM DJ’s who play our songs.
Tom says:
“I’m on 2BACR every Friday night and I only play music from the 50s & 60s. The best music.”

Big thanks again to Alan Dale for his usual professionalism, Reg Townsend for bringing his sound equipment, Sandra Erdman for the great pictures, Dave Burke for his stories and Gary’s help with supplying the venue. (La Piazza)

After we’d finished with the group photos and people were getting ready to leave, Col Joye came to me and asked me to grab a hold of Jimmy Parkinson for a sing-song. Col produced his ukulele and Jimmy obliged with a swinging version of Unchained Melody, Michael Parsons grabbed the mike and soon we had a bevy of singers ‘doing their thing’ Very enjoyable and a great ending to our day………

As the Echidnas club double booked their function date with our Bankstown Sports luncheon the result was we lost a few ARROWS also a good half dozen who came to our lunch left a little early to join up with the Echidnas cruise. Hope that doesn’t happen again!

Here’s a report from Alan Dale:
Another pleasant lunch with our dear friends from our industry. Trying to get around to exchange greetings can be challenging with so many having news to share (operations and illnesses included). Swapping memorabilia is another enlightening process with many moments to share. Once again Reg Townsend was liberal with his time by setting up his PA for us to utilise. The glass ceiling creates a sound hazard but, under the circumstances, a good outcome was reached. Without a pre Xmas function we can look forward to paying compliments of the season and New Year greetings at our January meeting at Club Cronulla (Bowling) on Monday 11th . Let's make it a big one!
