  1. Thanks to Greg, Terry and all who organised the Re-union and contributed to its promulgation and post re-union dissemination so successfully. The latest website news has some really important items worth reading by all Nashos.

  2. Qld’s pleasure, Denis. Thanks for making the trip.
    Sounds like you enjoyed catching up with your Taurama mates and talking to other Chalkies.

  3. Thank you to all who organised the day. It was great to hear so many stories, especially at the informal discussions at the club after the reunion. The photos are great. Denis O’Rourke
