Re: 42 Get together. Southport. 2018

not wanting to rain on your parade but why dont you think about attending the RA Assembly get together this May its over 3 days from Friday 18th to Monday 21st. you can attend for as many nights as you like and the costs are as follows.
3 night package DBB including Sat gala night dinner = £152 per person
2 night package DBB including sat gala night dinner = £126 PP
Grand gala Dinner only no accommodation £25 pp

Last year there were nearly 500 and that includes serving members from Regiments. I am going this year as I really enjoyed the first one I went to in 2016.

The saturday started off with the standards competition then the sunset parade the grand gala dinner

You can arrange to sit together.

Re: 42 Get together. Southport. 2018

surprised there have been no posts regarding the get together. Hope those that managed to make it had a good time. I didnt manage the Blackpool weekend, wasnt feeling too good pity really as there were some people attending that I really wanted to see.
