HMS JUPITER ASSOCIATION AGM will take place on October 12th at the George Hotel Lichfield. Anyone wishing to put their names forward as a Committee Member or want to include an item for the Agenda please contact the Secretary via the website by September 30th 2019.
Looking forward to the special Anniversary Reunion this year, new faces, new venue, new entertainment, new Vice Presidents, local Sea Cadets and RNA Representatives joining in with our celebrations. Only a few more rooms available at the George Hotel but we have negotiated rates at their sister Hotel, the Cathedral Lodge which is 5mins walk away so no excuses not to attend.
Don’t forget advantages of attending include free Tot Time (real RUM), a chance to meet up with some of your old messmates, a chance to meet up with your old Skipper (Commanders Bridges and Bryant) and of course real Matelots entertainment with Shep Woolley after the Reunion Dinner on Saturday night. Bring your other halves for a fun filled weekend and special Gin Experience, they will be forever grateful ( well maybe!).
There is plenty of room in the Hotels so contact all your lost oppos on faceache and invite them to join us for your own mini reunions and the chance to recoup some of the dosh you lent them 20 years ago.
Please email for the Attendance Form to email@example.com , this Form shows all your Hotel options and prices for the weekend.
The joint Venue will be The George Hotel in Lichfield & the NMA.
The weekend will be 11-13 October with the AGM @ 0900hrs in the Hotel, attendance at the NMA for a Remembrance Service at the Jupiter Commemorative Tree from 1100hrs to 1300hrs. and the the Anniversary Dinner from 1900hrs with Shep Woolley as our after Dinner Entertainment. Ticket prices and final timings will be promulgated later.
Harrogate was a little low on numbers but was made up with loads of Fun and Frolics.
The PPC Brigade (2L PO’S Mess) arrived a day earlier on the Thursday and tested the water (beer) before the rest arrived on the Friday. The Boss and Lady Jane arrived with the new Admirals Barge (looks like a motorised scooter) and proceeded to demolish half of the furniture in the Hotel, Ged Smith did try some simple manoeuvers in the Bar area but only achieved straight line speed of 1mph. More members turned up during the day with The Bell Pub and Wetherspoons providing most of the cheap ale and food. (Phots. coming soon).
Saturday morning we had our AGM followed by exciting pub and bus trips (!!!!!!!)
Saturday evening started with TOT TIME followed by the local Sea Cadet Corps. of Drums and Bugle giving us an excellent display of their musical talents. Well done to all concerned, the CO and XO then joined us for the Gala Dinner. A great Dinner with all the usual speeches and toasts and a successful Raffle, the Association donated £100 to the Cadets in appreciation of all their efforts on the night.
Letters of appreciation were sent to both the Crown Hotel and to the Sea Cadets and replies received.
Looking forward to the 2019 Anniversary Reunion in Lichfield and the NMA weekend October 11-13.
Plenty of rooms available until 27th August then the Hotel will release them to the general public, so get organised and book this weekend. The local Sea Cadets will be attending and be hoping to provide us with either a corps of drums or fan fare display.
Anyone wishing to join us at the AGM on Saturday morning and would like to help out with the Committee and any Members wishing to add an item to the Agenda please let me know by October 7th.
