MONDAY 13th JULY 2015 from 11am
Hi all
What a fantastic lunch we all had at Woy Woy last Monday.
Around 70 ARROWS attended on the day and Steve Brickley the club CEO and ex Fairstar assistant cruise director, was a hands on host.
Everything was set up for us when we arrived and the food was cheap, tasty and plentiful. His staff were on the ball and they all really looked after us. Thanks again to Steve and the girls……..
Alan Dale and I arrived at the club at 10.45am only to bump into Grade Wicker and his wife Jane who were arriving at the same time. It’s was an act of love and dedication for Jane to bring him along as he’s been ailing for some time now but she was determined to get him there to see us all. Well done Jane.

Many thanks also to Alan Dale and to Sandra Erdman who took lots of photos I’ll put them on my website soon but attached here find the group photo numbered and named. Also much appreciation to Lynne Fletcher who was not only there as an ARROWS but my ‘Girl Friday’ on the day. Plus a big yea for Geoff Groth in Adelaide for working on the photo with numbers and names.

Comments from Alan Dale…..
Another well attended Arrows lunch with food this time! The Woy Woy trip was a delight on the 9.15 from Central. This train is the inter-city express and is so comfortable with air conditioning and the bonus of only 4 stops on the way. The return trip on the 2.44 again was the inter-city which docked into Central at 3.56.
Virgins included singer-compere Tommy Rayburn, dancer Lorraine Buckley, musicians Hans Martin and Brian Kelly, radio presenter and drummer Michael Parsons, singer Graham Cotter and recording artist Grade Wicker who made a supreme effort to join us.
An apology was read from John Brennan who has the desire to make a lunch as soon as he is well enough. Steve (CEO) was so helpful in making us welcome and all agreed that the venue should be a very important part of our calendar. The ambience of the train journey adds to the pleasure of meeting old and new friends. A group photo has been taken by our loyal photographer Sandra and will be displayed for your viewing

Our sick list on the day was bigger than usual with lots of flu and colds around. Dave Allenby arrived but had to leave as he was not well at all. The same applied to Keith Williams who was suffering the same fate.
Apologies came thick and fast on the day with messages from Bruce Jansen, Bob Pierse, Margaret Hooper and Dick, Margaret Flanagan and Keith, Bernadette Ramsey, Don Sleishman, Shirley Simmons, Irene St.John, Ron Fabri, Sep Martin, Wayne Cornell, John Newton, Reg Townsend, and many others (if you were ill too, sorry if I haven’t included you name here as there were so many)……….
I’m seriously thinking about moving our Woy Woy lunch out of the winter/flu season …. watch this space…

Stats on the day
Attendances 70 all up
Central Coast Locals 28 (locals pool 48)
Apologies 78
Anybody who has any comments or ideas regarding the day please address them to me

Next ARROWS encounter will be at the Varsity Lakes Tavern Burleigh Waters on the Gold Coast, Queensland on the 14th September.
The venue is booked so write it in your diary and I’ll be in touch mid August with some details If anybody has any virgins I need to talk to, let me know. There’s still a few Brisbane people I haven’t found yet.
The last Sydney convergence for 2015 will be at Bankstown Sports on 12th October

Happy days to all
