I arrived at the restaurant at about 7.  Frank Rodrigues had the job of checking all arrivals.  Frank advised me that this was Brian Eastman's favourite restaurant, so if there were any complaints we blame Brian  (He is safe).  About 20 were already there and we started chatting.  I joined Claire Marchetti (she gave me 100 lines in my 1st week at KGV.  I will never let her forget it.) at her table.  I sat at Clair's left and at the end of the evening had a deaf right ear ( She has one loud laugh, perhaps I should term it a squark).  It was nice to meet Ron Tjioe from the younger generation, who we have nominated to try to integrate the later years into these reunions.  The jokes and discusions flowed and the food arrived at a steady pace.  Phil and Tina Rosenberg had vegetarian meals which seemed to arrive before the regular dishes, so we all helped them eat theirs, resulting in us being unable to eat the last 3 courses.
Mrs Lee kindly drew the lucky door prizes and Nicky Vargassoff had difficulty calling out the numbers in French, so he cheated and used English.  A very nice night catching up over the passing years.

In the evening we met in the hotel lobby between 6.45 and 7pm and departed in three groups to walk to The Rocks Dynasty Restaurant for a Chinese Banquet. A hundred and eighteen people attended and although the restaurant was crowded it was a fun night and the food was good.
