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.
