Varsity Lakes Tavern
MONDAY 14th September 2015 from 11am
Hi All What a ‘blast!’ our 5th Annual ARROWS lunch meeting was incredibly fabulous…… The surprise for me of laying eyes on Barney Combes after almost 50 years was unforgettable, He couldn’t stop hugging us all. I worked with Barney at the Associated Motor Club in George Street City for 3 years in the mid 60’s and hadn’t seen him since then.
I know that you all had great day as well and I’m looking forward to the next one at Bankstown Sports. Some of you even told me that you ‘had’ to get down to Sydney one day and catch up with your mates. You know that just ‘seeing’ them again is such a great feeling…. We won’t be here all that long I’m afraid.
Let me give a special thanks first to Ronny Kitchen who helped me organize the day, Sandra Erdman who came up from Sydney and took some great pictures, The Varsity Lakes Tavern who gave us their room and PA system for the 5th year now, the beautiful Gold Coast weather and all of you ARROWS who turned up.
Wilma Reading did it again and flew in from Cairns, Bruce Gillespie from Bundaberg, lots of us made it up from Sydney, a number from the bands out of Brisbane and more members from the Sunshine Coast.
With the help of Charlie Smith we found some of the Maori bands that were so prolific on the Gold Coast in the late 50s and early 60s and I believe there’s a few more to find.
All the girls looked stunning as always (I’ll get on) and so sorry some of us who are ailing just couldn’t make it on the day.
A group photo has been taken by Sandra our loyal photographer and soon will be sent for your viewing as well as lots of single shots that I’ll post on my web site see link below:

Lots of requests from our Queensland ARROWS to double up and have 2 meetings a year. We’ll give this a run in 2016
Wednesday June 22nd @ Surfers Paradise Rsl and Monday 14th November at the Varsity Lakes Tavern…………..
