Royal Roads Reunion Planning Update
Wayne Hammond
9 June 2009

This is an update on what has taken place over the last few weeks regarding our class’s participation in the RRU Reunion this fall 10 – 13 September. I am trying to plan as much as possible now to avoid the last minute headaches that usually occur just prior to the event.

Bob Craig and I met with Karen Inkster at RRU and reviewed my list of suggested modifications to what took place last year. She gave us good council on all of them and took them to the RRU planning group last week to see whether and how the changes could be implemented. We are now working on the details which will be finalized at the planning meeting next week. Following that, the registration form will be put on the RRU web site and registration will begin. Here is what we decided.

1. The class graduating in ’59 (our class) is holding a reception at the Harbour Hotel on Thurs 10 Sept from 5 – 9 pm. I realize this is over the supper hour. Are the hours OK or should we cut it off at 8 pm so that people can go out for supper afterwards? We will invite the classes graduating in ’58 and 60 – our Juniors and Seniors since we will remember most of them – look in your Log books. We are also inviting through the Victoria and Vancouver branches, any RMC and CMR personnel from those years who are in the vicinity to gain a feel for the Royal Roads experience.

2. The Navy will be hosting again this year, all who are attending the Reunion to a day’s sail on a frigate out on the Strait on Friday, 11 Sept. This was a fantastic event and the food was wonderful.

3. There is a reception that evening for everyone. It was held at the castle last year but was fairly crowded. I don’t know if they have decided where to hold it this year.

4. On Saturday we are having a box lunch for all ex cadets including those from when Royal Roads was a Naval College. This will be held at the Mess Decks from 11 am to 1:30 pm. This will allow time for people to get back to the Quarterdeck for the Robert Bateman presentation – or they can continue socializing at the Mess Decks.

5. The formal dinner that evening was most enjoyable. Blazer and Flannels are also an appropriate dress. Before the dinner RRU will present a continuous showing of a DVD with all the scanned pictures that hopefully you are digging out and sending to Karen.

6. We will meet at the flag pole now located at what was the Commandant’s house, for tours of the grounds and castle at 10 am Sunday. At 11 am we will form up in front in front of the castle for our Ceremonial Circle. Kent Foster has graciously volunteered to try and get us from a gaggle into possibly 3 ranks and to show us which one is our left foot. He assures me there will be NO circles given unless Tex Thomas has froust on the top of his beret. Old Brigade berets, blazers and flannels would be appropriate.

Remember to get the dates 10 – 13 Sept on your calendar and be ready to register as soon as the information is available on the RRU site.
