2016 – April Update

Posted by Pony. Comments Off on 2016 – April Update

Not much action of late from the Mighty 3rd. July 2015 saw another Reunion in Maroochydore – yours truly who was booked to attend ended up in hospital with a lingual hernia! I understand that many lies were told and much good cheer consumed.

Following Stan’s post – it is my sad duty to inform everyone that Walter Allan Leslie crossed the bar on Christmas Day 2013 in Victoria.

A great time was had by all, well at least we did! Returning to Canberra and having to walk across the tarmac in 4C was NOT GOOD!
Here is a group photo sample – all photos are now available on allanmoore.com – Reunion photos. You can view the Thumbnail then download large size image for printing.

Peter Girven – On The Track

Posted by Peter Girven. 1 Comment

G’day Pony,we are travelling to the reunion with our camper trailer and have found the nearest caravan park to the RSL is the Cotton Tree Caravan Park, just a couple of blocks away if you enjoy a drink, they don’t take bookings unless you are staying more than a week as there is plenty of room at that time of the year.

Unfortunately none of the van parks in the area take pets, as we are travelling with our livestock we located the Maroochy boarding kennels which is fairly handy and reasonable. I hope this can be of help to others who may be going with their vans.

Regards Peter Girven
