The Daily Diary
Friday 16th March. Back to the Future.

F R I D A Y 1 6 t h.
The Ultimate KGV Gala Rock ‘n Roll Shindig! The Mother of all Last Night Parties with plenty of Chantilly rock ’n Kangaroo roll! Fabulous typical Queensland location at The Paradise Springs Golf Club, ‘groovy’ 50’s/60’s disco plus professional rock ’n roll dancers. Elvis lives! Wear your dancing shoes for a night you’ll never forget (or hopefully can’t remember!).

Dear Viewer.  Some of the pages have a lot of photos.  If you have a slow modem it will time out and you will get a square with a red cross in the corner.  To open this image click the photo with the right button of your mouse, from the selection panel click the show picture option with the left button.  Enjoy.  Rod Sell.

Looks like the KGV School Play is alive and well, or were they reading a script from the GOON Show.  Well done Neddy Lad and who is reading GrypPikeFinn... Hullo Minn.

I hope the opposing team were impressed.

Yes the Rowell Blues were ready, but how did Phil get in both.

Phil giving a lesson in old fashion Rock & Roll.

The gang learn fast, or were they playing ring around the rosies.

Rock and Roll regardless.

The end of a great reunion.  See you at the next one.

Hi Rod,
Just a few more to add to Tony Williams' great collection of a fantastic night, the last get together before everyone finally headed home.  The Queensland style golf club was the perfect venue with its french doors opening to wide verandahs to cool off after dancing our feet off.  So much fun and so much noise...specially doing photo shoots of house groups!  Perhaps Phil never knew which house he was in, or perhaps it was a "senior moment", because he insisted on being in each one!  Cheryl Poulsen very deservedly won the prize for best 60's costume of the night and Eddie & Irene Xavier won the best rock n roll dancing prize. That was a close call though!!  Vianney entertained with his "policeman" routine, there were great speeches, then the school song to "special" words, and on with the show.  The rock n roll demo was a great way of putting everyone "in the mood", and pretty much as one we all hit the floor. Phil's CD was again the rave of the night.
For me, and this being my first reunion, it was an incredible time and a week I will never forget.  Thank you Phil, and the committee, for giving us all such special memories.
